Wednesday links and notes

I’ll start today by passing along my story on Ryan Appleby, who is two away from breaking UW’s career record for three-pointers. Deon Luton holds the record at 212, which he set in four years, while Appleby is going to do it in less than three (or to make a really accurate comparison, Appleby could do it in his 85th game while Luton played 117).
But Luton was asked to do more than has been Appleby, an issue my story today discusses, as well. Luton, by the way, is now a school counselor in Oklahoma City, where he was born.
Also in our paper today is a the Pac-10 notebook from Bud Withers with a lead item on the new CBI post-season tournament that gives even more hope of post-season action for teams like UW that are hovering around the .500 mark. As noted here last week, UW coach Lorenzo Romar said he will go to the CBI if invited.
— The Arizona Daily Star has this feature on freshman guard Jerryd Bayless, who has scored 30 or more points in three straight games.
— The Daily Star also has this look at whether a 9-9 conference record will be good enough to get teams into the NCAA Tournament.
— The Oregonian looks further at whether OSU might decide to further discipline Marcel Jones and Sean Carter for what happened last weekend. Interesting that further in the story, OSU coach Kevin Mouton publicly acknowledges the phone call made by Jones, something the coach had initially denied after the game on Saturday.
— Here’s more on that topic from the Eugene Register-Guard including a note that Mouton “gave Jones a mouthful” for making the call to Joel Smith as well as his summation that the Beavers “tanked it” against the Huskies.
