UCI center Ethington is a man on a mission
Orange co CA Register 9Feb00 S2

IRVINE, CALIFORNIA -- University of California, Irvine starting center Greg Ethington won't play next season, or the season after that. Ethington has been called to serve in the Vancouver, British Columbia Mission for the LDS Church.

"I'm excited to go," Ethington said. "It's something I've been looking forward to for a long time. Finally, it's official." He is scheduled to enter the MTC April 19th and will spend two months there learining Cantonese. He said that he hadn't even heard of cantonese before his mission call, "I have no clue how to speak it," Ethington said, "but I'm looking forward to finding out."

Ethington isn't certain if he will return to Irvine following his mission, "I haven't even thought about it, really," he said. "At the end of the year I'm going to talk to Coach (Pat) Douglass and evaluate my situation. I would have to say that returning to UCI is a good possibility. I can't really say for sure what's going to happen in two years, but it's a good possibility."
