Early morning links: Not everybody is a Pondexter fan

Buster Sports columnist Nick Daschel take umbrage that Washington’s Quincy Pondexter has joined Gary Payton, Ed O’Bannon, Chris Mills and Eddie House as the only players to win four Pac-10 Player of the Week awards in a single season.
Daschel writes: ” He’s nowhere near the class of a Payton, a House or an O’Bannon. Not yet. … On the road, where the great players shine, Pondexter has been average. In fact, disappointing. At home, Pondexter is averaging 22.2 points a game; on the road, throwing out the neutral court game against Georgetown, he’s averaging a puny 12.6 points.”
