A friend of the basketball program, Washington president Mark Emmert (right) leaves office today. Soon he’ll take over as NCAA president.
On his last day at the helm, Katherine Long examines Emmert’s six-year tenure and gives the UW alumnus high marks as a leader and fundraiser while exploring his deteriorating relationship with the state Legislature. It’s a really good read.
THURSDAY MORNING NOTES:
— Season ticket are now on sale.
Individual tickets for non-conference games will be available 8:30 a.m. Oct. 18 and Dec. 20 for Pac-10 games. The school put together this video to get fans excited for the new season.

— Washington State forward Klay Thompson tells Rivals.com: “We honestly feel like we have the talent to compete with anyone.”
— Former Oregon quarterback Jeremiah Masoli helped the Ducks land point guard Jay-R Strowbridge. Masoli took advantage of a quick in the NCAA rules which allows student athletes to immediately transfer between Division I schools without sitting out if they enroll in a graduate program not offered at their previous school. Stowbridge did the same thing. The 5-foot-11 senior with Murray State, played two seasons at Nebraska, transferred to Jacksonville State last season and then left for Arkansas State.
— Oregon’s new Matthew Knight Arena, which is scheduled to open in January, looks to be on schedule.
— Seattle University athletic director Bill Hogan met with the Western Athletic Conference Tuesday to appeal for membership. The Redhawks are one of five teams making a pitch to the WAC, which is looking to replenish the conference after losing Boise State, Fresno State and Nevada to the Mountain West. In addition to SU, Texas-San Antonio, Texas State, Montana and the University of Denver met with the WAC.
— The Bleacher Report gives its top 10 teams next season.
