FSN Northwest reunites broadcast buddies Kevin Calabro (left) and Lenny Wilkens on the sideline as the A-team for its 2010-11 men’s basketball season television coverage.
The network will broadcast 21 Washington games this season. Gonzaga (18), Oregon State (18), Washington State (14), Oregon (11), Seattle University (4) and GNAC Conference (9) will also appear on FSN. Here’s a complete list of games on the network.
Washington’s first televised game will be carried on FSN. It’s a Nov. 16 encounter with Eastern Washington.
Calabro and Wilkens will call select Pac-10 games. Here’s a breakdown of the other broadcast pairings.
Primary Team for the State of Washington: Tom Glasgow and Francis Williams.
Primary Team for the State of Oregon: Rich Burke and Lamar Hurd.
Gonzaga Team: Mark Heister and Craig Ehlo.
GNAC Team: Brad Adam and Williams.
TUESDAY MORNING LINKS:
— More bad news for Oregon. The Ducks lost another player. This time its newcomer Jay-R Strowbridge who broke his nose and dislocated his right thumb during a scrimmage Friday against Nevada. Coach Dana Altman isn’t sure if Strowbridge will return for the Nov. 12 against North Dakota State. Oregon has just eight scholarship players available.
— Interesting story by Mark Zeigler at the San Diego Union-Tribune who examines the absurdity in the so-called “stealth” preseason games in college basketball. For instance, Washington flew to Los Angeles and scrimmaged Loyola Marymount on Saturday, however, per NCAA rules the coaches and players can’t talk about it.
— Arizona played a practice game in secret against future Pac-12 member Utah on Saturday.
FoxSports.com’s Jeff Goodman pulled some information out of the private scrimmages. His sources told him Arizona’s Derrick Williams was the best player on the court, which isn’t a news flash. But what is surprising is Arizona State newcomer Carrick Felix was said to be the best Sun Devils player in their scrimmage against Saint Mary’s. Felix, who committed to Duke, went to school with UW center Aziz N’Diaye at College of Southern Idaho although they never played together. Felix broke his wrist two years ago and redshirted while N’Diaye sat out and redshirted last season due to a knee injury.
— No link, however, Rivals.com unveiled its new top 20 2011 national team recruiting rankings and Washington is not included. The Huskies were No. 20, but they’ve been bumped off the list by Mississippi State.
— Oregon State is possibly closing in on a commitment from Elijah Carter, 6-foot-2 New Jersey guard who visited the Beavers over the weekend. He told Adam Zagoria that his list includes OSU, Charlotte, Seton Hall, UCLA and Rhode Island. Carter is rated the No.22 point guard in the country by Rivals.com and Scout.com considers him a three-star recruit.
— No link, but it looks like UCLA has more competition for Quinn Cook, a five-star point guard. The Bruins were in a dogfight with Duke, but it looks as if North Carolina has entered the picture.
— Former Washington player Justin Dentmon is headed to the D-League. He was taken in the third round by the Texas Legends, the minor league affiliate for the Dallas Mavericks.
