Morning links: Pondexter gets recognition; Lunardi’s Bracketolgoy

Let’s start the day with a note on Washington’s Quincy Pondexter and Washington State’s Klay Thompson who were included among the top 31 candidates for the John R. Wooden Award, given to the nation’s top college basketball player.
They are the only Pac-10 players on the Wooden list.
Other players include: Notre Dame’s Luke Harangody, Sherron Colllins and Cole Aldrich from Kansas, Duke’s Kyle Singler and Michigan State’s Kalin Lucas.
Pondexter and Thompson were not included on the Top 50 preseason Wooden list and one of 10 players included on the midseason list.
UW’s Isaiah Thomas was on the preseason list and did not make the latest list. All players are eligible for the national ballot, which will be selected in March and will consist of approximately 20 players.
