Cactus Classic roundup

The Cactus Classic AAU Tournament played this weekend in Tucson, and it featured many of the top high school players from the West Coast.
Here are a few stories emanating from the tournament:
Abdul Gaddy, a guard from Bellarmine Prep who has committed to Arizona, led the tournament with 36 assists and appeared to reaffirm his commitment to the Wildcats/ according to the Tucson Citizen.
— However, the Arizona Daily Wildcat reported that Gaddy seemed to hedge when talking about his future, saying “if I come” at one point during his interview.
— The Arizona Daily Star has this blog report on the tournament, including a note that Gaddy’s teammate, Avery Bradley, says he’s “still open.” Scout.com reports Bradley now has an offer from UCLA, as well as most of the rest of the Pac-10, but still includes Washington as a school he is seriously considering.
— The Louisville Courier-Journal has this update on Franklin High’s Peyton Siva as he says that “I still like Louisville” and that Louisville “has a good shot to get me” but that it’s still “pretty much even.” But he also says he’s recently been getting interest from Tennessee and Kentucky, as well. And he also told the Arizona Daily Star that he likes the thought of playing with Gaddy in college and that “if Arizona fits me, I’ll come to Arizona.” UW remains in the mix, he says, but that sounds like an increasingly longer shot. Still sounds like Louisville, long the rumored final destination, is the favorite.
— The Citizen also has this on the academics of incoming UA guard Brandon Jennings. Story makes it hard to tell where he really stands.
Here are the final stats. Bradley was the second-leading scorer, Siva fifth and Gaddy eighth.
