Pondexter says he’ll stay

Quincy Pondexter said Monday he’ll almost certainly be back as a Husky next season rather than considering applying for the NBA, something I wrote about in this story here today.
I realize completely it seems a little strange for a freshman averaging 10.7 points a game to even be considering the NBA, and I don’t think there was ever much chance of it happening.
But Pondexter had left the door open for that a few weeks ago when he told several of us that he would “re-evaluate” his situation at the end of the season. Here’s that story.
To be frank, I thought that story was more interesting as a peek into his mindset than it was as breaking news, since I think few thought it realistic he would really opt for the NBA after this season.
I think the new story is interesting for the same reasons — he now seems full steam ahead on thinking only about the Huskies next year and not anything else. At the time he told he would think about the NBA, he had just returned to the starting lineup after sitting for nine games. Now, he’s started the last eight games and seems to have a more clearly defined role on the team. That may all just be a coincidence. But as Pondexter himself said Monday, he feels he’s “settling in” now.
Also today was this story on the All-Pac-10 honors and Jerry Brewer’s column on how Lorenzo Romar and Cameron Dollar led a Saint Louis team in a similar position as this year’s Huskies to victory in the Conference USA Tournament in 2000.
Here, also, are the weekly Pac-10 notes from the Eugene Register-Guard, with an interesting look at Stanford’s NCAA hopes, as well as some info on the Huskies.
Here’s an LA Times story on Will Conroy being released by the Clippers.
