Tomorrow’s Pac-10 summit will have basketball ramifications

Bruce Pascoe at the Arizona Daily Star gives great insight to Thursday’s Pac-10 meeting that will decide how the conference will integrate new members Colorado and Utah.
Most of the decisions pertain to football such as divisional alignment, revenue sharing and a conference championship game.
Still there’s a few basketball questions that need answering.
Pascoe writes: “The CEOs are almost certain to go with athletic directors’ recommendation of an 18-game format, with each school playing its geographic rival and six other teams twice every year. Four teams would be played only once and the only question is whether the four single-game teams would be rotated around on a five-year or 10-year cycle.”
WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON LINKS:
— There was a slim chance Virginia guard Sammy Zeglinksi would be available for the Washington game Nov. 21. After undergoing surgery on his left knee Tuesday, doctors said he’ll return in eight weeks, which means he won’t play against the Huskies. The Cavaliers will rely on a trio of players (sophomore guard Jontel Evans, senior guard Mustapha Farrakhan and freshman Billy Baron) to replace Zeglinski.
— UCLA has a point guard controversy involving incumbent Jerime Anderson and junior college transfer Lazeric Jones.
Big East coaches picked Pittsburgh to win the conference. The Panthers received 12 of 16 votes. West Virginia, which knocked off UW in the Sweet 16 last season, was picked fifth. Marquette, which lost to the Huskies in the NCAA tournament opener, was picked eighth along with Louisville.
Keith Harrell, a standout player at Seattle University and Garfield High School, died Monday after a battle with spinal cancer. Harrell was nicknamed Silk for his fluid moves on the court.
