Daugherty out, other notes

Stuck here in the Sacramento Airport for reasons that don’t need explaining other than to say that I unexpectedly got to watch all the games today and browse the net more than I thought.
We don’t usually talk UW women’s basketball on here since I don’t cover that team. But obviously the firing of June Daugherty is a matter of a lot of interest to Husky fans, so if you want to discuss it here, go ahead.
Here’s our story on the firing as well as a blog posting from UW AD Todd Turner on gohuskies.com explaining the move.
In other matters, there was some good news for the men’s team over the weekend as UW recruit Justin Holiday led Campbell Hall into the California State Division IV title game with a win in the regional final Saturday. As this story reports, Holiday had 24 points and 20 rebounds. He’s a 6-6 swingman who has drawn some comparisons to former Husky Bobby Jones. His brother, Jrue, a junior guard, also plays on the team and is being recruited by UW.
In what was interesting news for the UW team, Spencer Hawes was shown on TV during the USC-Texas game sitting next to the father of Kevin Durant. I know Hawes knows Durant from the summer league circuit, and it’s certainly intriguing was there. But I don’t know what it means.
As for USC, more good news for the Pac-10 — consider there are three Pac-10 teams in the Sweet 16 and just one from the ACC (North Carolina).
