Video: College GameDay at Hec Ed

In full regalia, the Dawg Pack came out early and strong this morning, packing the student section at Bank of America Arena to form a purple backdrop for ESPN’s College GameDay show.
My unofficial count has about 1,000 fans inside the building.
Coach Lorenzo Romar sat off to the side with is wife Leona, Harry the Husky patrolled the arena, the UW band played and the Husky cheerleaders danced. It’s a crazy scene.
The crowd playfully taunted host Rece Davis, who issued a video challenge to Husky fans early in the week asking them “to show us something different.” The chanted “East Coast Bias,” “Let’s Go Purple” and carried signs that read: “We exist too.”
Digger Phelps sported a purple marker that he kept hidden beneath the desk, and Bob Knight ribbed the fans.
Davis and Phelps picked UW to win.
Afterward Phelps said: “You gave the best performance than anybody this season.” Phelps also led a chant, shouting: “Whose in the House!”
The school passed out Top Pot donuts and gave t-shirts to the first 600 UW students.
SATURDAY MORNING LINKS AND NOTES:
— I spotted a very tall recruit walking with Romar and coach Raphael Chillious the other day. Dawgman.com is reporting 7-foot center Aziz N’Daiye and 6-5 swingman Terrence Ross are expected to be on campus taking recruiting visits this weekend. The website was unsure if highly-touted Portland-product Terrence Jones will make a visit this weekend.
— UCLA freshman forward/center Reeves Nelson suffered a black eye Thursday at Washington State, but he’s been cleared to play tonight.
—- Former USC coach Tim Floyd is expected to meet with the NCAA’s Committee on Infractions to answer allegations of improper recruiting involving O.J. Mayo.
— Meanwhile the Trojans, which are prohibited from playing in the postseason, remains in contention for a Pac-10 regular-season title because of its stingy defense.
— Oregon State freshman Roberto Nelson, who was forced to redshirt because he was ruled academically ineligible by the NCAA Clearinghouse, tells the Gazette-Times it’s “been frustrating” having to sit out.
Gill Coliseum has become a tough place for opposing point guards, who have difficulty contending with Oregon’s tough 1-3-1 zone.
