SOME NOTES FROM MONDAY’S PRACTICE:

— The Huskies worked a lot on defense today, including box out and defensive help drills.
— Everyone was at practice, however, Tyreese Breshers continues to work on the side improving his conditioning.
— Even though it was defensive day, Venoy Overton made a few nice plays, including a dribble drive in the lane and a no-look, over-the-shoulder pass to C.J. Wilcox for a three-pointer.

AND A NOTE ON RECRUITING:

— On its pay site, Scout.com says Terrence Jones will decide tonite if he’s going to sign early (the period starts Wednesday) or later. Evan Daniels believes Jones’ top three schools include UW, Kentucky and Oklahoma. He’s also considering Oregon and UCLA.
