Plenty of morning links

Good game last night for the Huskies. Still no word on Quincy Pondexter. I’ll check in with him later today and give a report on how he’s doing after bruising his ribs.
On to the links …
— Let’s start with our game story from the 87-60 win over Seattle University. Be sure to also check out Jim Bates’ photo gallery. The game provided many highlights for the UW and there’s some nice pics of reserves Artem Wallace and Joe Wolfinger and the Dawg Pack.
Bud Withers gives you his postseason awards picks and selects his all-Pac-10 first and second teams. Withers also douses a cold bucket of water on fans who think the Huskies will claim a No. 3 seed in the NCAA Tournament.
— Speaking of postseason awards, San Jose Mercury News’ Jon Wilner gives his selections for POY and COY. He waffles on the POY saying it will go to either Jon Brockman or UCLA’s Darren Collison, however, he gives the COY to Oregon State’s Craig Robinson.
— The Arizona Republic’s Doug Haller gives his Pac-10 power rankings here. He also believes the Pac-10 will put five teams in the NCAA Tournament and considers USC and Washington State strong possibilities.
— The Tucson Citizen’s Steve Rivera reports that Arizona’s Jordan Hill is listed as day-to-day, but should play in Thursday’s game against Cal. This game has UW implications. If the Huskies and UCLA tie for Pac-10 title, Washington needs Arizona State to finish ahead of the Bears in the conference standings to gain the No. 1 seed into the conference tourney.
— Staying in Arizona, the Daily Star’s Patrick Finley cites a report in the Sports Business Journal that says San Diego Padres Sandy Alderson is the new front runner to replace Pac-10 Commissioner Tom Hansen.
— It’s never to early to start gearing up for the hoops version of the Apple Cup and Washington State’s Tony Bennett talks about the Cougars season as reported by the Spokesman-Review.
The Oregonian’s Mike Tokito always does a solid job with his Pac-10 roundup.
OSU’s Robinson talks to the Oregonian’s Paul Buker about his ambitions, how long he will stay, and what happens if Kansas calls
— Finally, interesting story out of Tucson, AZ as the NCAA is investigating the Arizona Wildcats on suspicion of an elitte recruiting violation.
