Tuesday night links — Gaddy selected for Hoop Summit game

A few links to light up your Tuesday night. …
— UW signee Abdul Gaddy has been named to play for USA Basketball at the 12th annual Nike Hoops Summit April 11 at the Rose Garden in Portland. Gaddy is one of nine players named to the team, which face a squad of top international players, all of whom are 19 years or younger. As you can read, also named to the team are his former Bellarmine Prep teammate Avery Bradley, as well as DeMarcus Cousins, the center from Alabama regarded as one of the top still-uncommitted recruits in the country. Cousins has been said to be considering UW, though indications are that it’s a longshot (I’ve tried to arrange an interview with Cousins or his coach but haven’t been successful). Here’s ticket information.
— My story for Wednesday’s paper has been posted and includes a look at the remaining schedules for the contenders for the Pac-10 title. One note in that story I unearthed today — the last Pac-10 team to sweep the LA trip was UW in 2006 when Brandon Roy, Bobby Jones and crew did it. UCLA has lost just two home conference games since then — USC a year ago, which obviously couldn’t sweep; and Arizona State this year, which had lost at USC two nights prior to beating the Bruins in Pauley.
Renardo Sidney, a 6-11 center from Los Angeles who might have been the top player in the country still uncommitted, has said he will announce his decision Sunday, and the early speculation is that he will pick UCLA.
All for now.
