Pondexter update, and Arizona benefitting from USC mess

UW’s Quincy Pondexter may be again in action in the as I type this, as Team USA is set to play this afternoon against Russia in what is kind of an ehibition for the World University Games, technically called the Sernia International Invitational.
The USA team will begin actual play in the World University Games on July 3 against Finland.
The U.S. is 1-1 so far in the SII, losing yesterday to host Serbia 98-82. Pondexter had six points, two rebounds and two assists in 16 minutes off the bench.
He had seven points in the first game for Team USA.
UPDATE — Pondexter scored three points in USA’s win against Russia and he averaged 5.3 points in the three exhibition games. USA won today 67-63.
ARIZONA GETS FORMER USC RECRUIT — Also, news today that former USC signee Derrick Williams will instead attend Arizona.
Arizona also earlier got four-star forward Solomon Hill on the rebound from the Trojans. And since April, new coach Sean Miller has compiled a five-man recruiting class of three- and four-star players that seems to ensure the Wildcats will stay near the top of the conference for a while.
