I’ll refer you first today to a couple of stories in our paper.
First, here’s our Pac-10 notebook, with an emphasis on the continuing show of strength by the conference. It’s now realistic to think the conference could get six teams in the NCAA tournament — and that’s potentially good news for the Huskies, who might need all the help they can get come March.
Also in the notebook is an item on C.J. Giles and the fact that he did look into coming to UW, but the Huskies — already full on scholarships — weren’t interested. Also included is a note that UW and WSU have never before been ranked at the same time, and only once (1949-50) have been ranked in the same season.
Next is our Husky notebook, with a lead item on Tim Morris and his possible contribution to Thursday’s game at Stanford even though he won’t be playing. Morris is sitting out this season as a transfer from The Farm, and will have one year of eligibility next year. He said it’s particularly frustrating sitting out this year because he feels he is much-improved and would like to be able to show it on the court. It’s easy to overlook when anticipating next season the impact Morris could make.
And in some alumni news, here’s a story on Will Conroy being named the Player of the Week in the NBA Developmental League.
If you happen to get NBATV, pay attention for the NBADL Game of the Week. I was flipping through the channels Sunday and saw part of a Tulsa-Arkansas game featuring Conroy.
