Brockman set to debut in Portsmouth, more notes UPDATED

Former UW forward Jon Brockman — a phrase that just doesn’t seem right yet — is getting ready for his first post-Husky action today in the Portsmouth Invitational Tournament, a showcase for graduating college players.
Brockman is playing for the team Cherry, Bekeart & Holland and plays his first game at 4 p.m. Seattle time. His team will be playing against the Norfolk Sports Club, which includes former Cougar guard Taylor Rochestie.
There’s no TV but you can follow the tournament here, and I’ll also pass along the results later.
Also, Brockman is keeping a diary of the PIT for Dawgman.com that you can find here.
IN OTHER NEWS. …
— Word is Cameron Dollar may be meeting with Portland State officials today to discuss the head coaching vacancy there. Nothing is expected to happen until next week, but the meeting today could determine how serious both sides are about each other. Ken Bone said on KJR just a few minutes ago that PSU also interviewed associate head coach Tyler Geving today. Geving has been thought by some a favorite for the job. Dollar also remains in the mix at Seattle U though it’s likely his first choice would be PSU since it’s already an established D-I school.
— Lots of movement among underclass Pac-10 players in the last 24 hours or so, the latest being that Jrue Holiday of UCLA is going to at least explore his options though he will also leave open the option of returning. Daniel Hackett of USC has also decided to declare for the draft as has DeMar DeDorzan. While UW fans might be happy not to have to face any of those guys again, Jon Wilner says this is all bad news for the conference as a whole, likely to be viewed as way down heading into next season.
UPDATE — Cal announced today that Patrick Christopher will return for his senior season, so that solidifies the Bears’ roster with each of its big three due back for one final year.
Also, UCLA coach Ben Howland will hold a press conference later today to discuss the decision of Holiday to test the waters. Holiday told the LA Daily News today that he will definitely leave if he’s told he’ll be a lottery pick.
All for now.
