Notes on Brockman, Gaddy and early rankings

As mentioned last night, Jon Brockman had a big night in his first game in the Portsmouth Invitational Tournament with 24 points and 21 rebounds.
Here’s a report from HoopsWorld.com that calls Brockman “an absolute beast inside.” But it also notes that Brockman may have a tougher go of it in the semifinals tonight.
His team is scheduled to play the Norfolk Naval Shipyard tonight at 6 p.m. Seattle time, a squad that includes some big guys, such as -10, 225 Alada Aminu of Georgia Tech.
ProBasketballNews.com notes that Brockman’s “draft stock improved with just one game” but says that Aminu was also impressive and that that matchup could prove real interesting tonight.
GADDY FEATURED IN NIKE HOOP SUMMIT — From a past Husky to a future one as Abdul Gaddy will play Saturday in the Nike Hoop Summit in Portland. The game will be televised on FSN Northwest at 7 p.m.
Here’s a story from today’s Oregonian previewing the summit (it mostly focuses on local product Mike Moser who seriously considered UW before landing at UCLA via Arizona) but also has nuts and bolts into on the entire event.
And here’s a good interview with Gaddy from February from the USA Basketball web site that served as an early preview of the event, as well.
UW NO. 7 IN THE COUNTRY? — And I know some of you have already batted this around, but Jeff Goodman of Fox Sports yesterday listed UW as his No. 7 team in the country in his early pre-season rankings for 2009-10.
ESPN’s Andy Katz, meanwhile, has UW No. 17 in the country and second among Pac-10 teams with Cal at No. 10.
