Around the Pac-10

Being immersed in all things Washington during the NCAA Tournament means it was easy to forget or overlook some other things happening around the conference — at least it was for me — so time to get up to speed.
— There’s still speculation in Oregon about the future of Ducks coach Ernie Kent, expected to meet this week with AD Pat Kilkenny. If/when things happen, this will be a good place to stay up to speed.
DraftExpress.com has some interesting notes in its rumor mill column, including that USC’s Daniel Hackett — who was born in Italy — may just go there and play pro ball next year if he isn’t drafted. There’s also info on ASU’s James Harden (expected to turn pro) and USC’s Taj Gibson (also likely to turn pro).
Scott Wolf of the LA Daily News points out Gibson would be 25 next season so hard to see how his stock could improve any more in college.
— Cal’s Patrick Christopher is the only Pac-10 player so far to say definitively that he will test the waters. But sounds like he’ll ultimately be back next season.
The Sporting News ponders the chances USC’s DeMar DeRozan and UCLA’s Jrue Holiday will declare for the draft and also includes a mock lottery that has Jordan Hill No. 2, Harden No.8 and Chase Budinger No. 10.
— And in case you’d forgotten — and shame on you if you have — Oregon State and Stanford will play for the fourth time tonight in the semifinals of the CBI. As The Oregonian points out, it’s the deepest into March OSU has played since 1949.
All for now.
