Lindy’s picks UW eighth in Pac-10

In our continuing review of what the pre-season magazines have to say about the Huskies, we’ll look today at Lindy’s, which picks UW eighth.
(Full disclosure: I write some stories for Lindy’s, including the Husky preview, but I don’t have any input into the conference selections).
Here’s how Lindy’s sees the Pac-10:
1, UCLA
2, WSU
3, Stanford
4, Arizona
5, Oregon
6, Cal
7, USC
8, Washington
9, Arizona State
10, Oregon State
Lindy’s also picks UCLA No. 1 in the nation and also has WSU (7), Stanford (12), Arizona (15) and Oregon (22) in the top 25.
Here are some of Lindy’s pre-season awards:
Player of the Year: Darren Collinson, UCLA.
Newcomer of the Year: Kevin Love, UCLA.
Top shooter: Tajuan Porter, Oregon.
Top rebounder: Jon Brockman, UW.
Top defender: Kyle Weaver, WSU.
Top playmaker: Collison.
Most versatile: Weaver.
Top NBA prospect: Brook Lopez, Stanford.
Most entertaining: O.J. Mayo, USC.
Lindy’s also names three five-man all-conference teams — first, second and third — as the Pac-10 will to this year. Brockman is the only Husky named to any of the three.
Brockman is on the first team with Collison, Weaver, Chase Budinger of Arizona and Lawrence Hill of Stanford.
The second team is Derrick Low (WSU), Mayo, Ryan Anderson (Cal), Lopez andn Love. (And I’m thinking by the end of the season that second team might be able to beat that first team).
The third team is Josh Shipp (UCLA), Bryce Taylor (Oregon), Taj Gibson (USC), Jeff Pendergraph (Arizona State) and Maarty Leunen (Oregon).
Of UW, Lindy’s says “An upper-division finish is quite possible if the guards can play on an even keel.”
