Wednesday afternoon notes

Just in case you caught CBI fever two weeks ago when the Huskies hosted their lone game in that tournament (and really, was it just two weeks ago?) here’s a quick reminder that it could all end tonight if Tulsa can win at Bradley in game two of the three-game championship series. Here’s more info.
— This SF Chronicle story today maintains that Tony Bennett is still a candidate for the Cal job despite a lot of public pronouncements to the contrary. One reason that job is thought to hold a little more appeal than maybe it would seem on the surface is the ability to get special academic admits into school.
— One Milwaukee columnist says Marquette should call Bennett, as well, noting his ties to the area.
— The Elkins High team that included UW recruit Elston Turner Jr., was rated 43rd in the country in the final rankings by CalHiSports.com.
— UW recruit Scott Suggs is one of eight Missouri high school players nominated to be the state’s Mr. Show-Me Basketball.
— TV ratings for the NCAA tournament are down 7 percent so far. Stated reason is all the blowouts in what has been a rather dull tournament other than Davidson and a few other upsets. Will four No. 1 seeds, three of whom are among the most famous names in the history of the sport, lead to better ratings this weekend? You’d think.
— One of you asked who might be a candidate for a UW assistant’s job if Cameron Dollar leaves. Here’s one possibility. Here’s another.
All for now.
