Former Huskies Robinson and Conroy in action this weekend

The Seattle Summer Pro-Am league wraps up this weekend at Rainier Beach High School.
Former Huskies Winner Nate Robinson and Will Conroy are expected to play along with NBA stars Jamal Crawford and Terrence Williams.
The finals are 5:30 p.m. and 6:45 p.m. today and 1 p.m. tomorrow followed by the All Star game at 2:45 p.m. Daily admission is $5 for adults, $2 for youth 10 and over.
Abdul Gaddy opens up in this extensive interview with Rush The Court. Here’s a snippet:
RTC: What kind of goals do you have personally for yourself this year, and what kind of goals do you have as a team?
AG: For myself, I just want to be a better player. I just want to be able to be in the games and play more minutes, help my team down the stretch. I want to accomplish some goals, like I want to be first- or second-team Pac-10, those types of things. But as a team, I think our goals are just to play hard every day, to define our roles early so that we can go into conference play with a lot of confidence. Then, especially going down the stretch, start winning some close games; I just want to win our conference, make the tournament and try to win a national championship. But we’ve got to take it one day at a time and just keep getting better every day.
— Just one game remains for Matthew Bryan-Amaning and Great Britain in the EuroBasket qualifying games. The Brits play Ukraine on Sunday, however, they’ve already qualified for next year’s European Championship. Bryan-Amaning hasn’t played much, but perhaps he’ll see more action in the final game and the Brits may rest their starters. He’s appeared in just three games of seven games and is averaging 2.7 minutes, 2.0 rebounds and 1.3 points.
— There’s a lot of excitement at Washington this morning after Skyline senior Kasen Williams, rated the No. 1 receiver in the country by some recruiting services, chose to play football for the Huskies. Got to wonder if commitments from local star athletes like Williams and Gig Harbor tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins will influence UW basketball recruits Tony Wroten, Hikeem Stewart and Brett Kingma to stay at home.
Kevin Cacabelos at Seatown Sports has first-hand knowledge of several Husky recruits and he provides profiles of Wroten, Stewart and Kingma.
— Arizona added walkon 6-foot incoming freshman guard Robert Arvizu increasing its roster to 15 players. He won back-to-back Class 5A state championships in Arizona and averaged 9.8 points, 1.4 rebounds and 6.1 assists per game as a senior last year while helping North High to a 28-3 record.
— It’s a little old, but Gary Parrish at writes an interesting story about Sonny Vacaro who is looking to regain his throne as AAU summer basketball king.
