THURSDAY AFTERNOON LINKS:
— Rightly so, UCLA is a little nervous about tonight’s exhibition against Westmont, a tiny Christian and liberal arts NAIA school. The Bruins still remember last year’s exhibition against NAIA Concordia in which they needed a last-second three-pointer to pull out a 62-61 victory.
— The Bruins also got a some bad news today from Maryland point guard Quinn Cook who announced today on ESPNU that he’s going to sign with Duke.
— ESPN.com’s Dana O’Neil takes a look at Arizona and writes the end of its 25-year NCAA tournament run may have been a good thing for the Wilcats.
— Collegehoopsnet.com continues with its previews of the top 144 teams and takes a look at Arizona State.
— It’s pretty generic stuff, however, The Sports Network takes a look at every team in its Pac-10 preview.
— Arizona coach Sean Miller will participate in a season-long free throw contest against basketball coaches to raise awareness about heart disease and honor Skip Prosser who died July 26, 2007 at the age of 56 from a heart attack.
— And finally, FoxSports.com’s Jeff Goodman unearthed video (below) of Arizona State coach Herb Sendek attempting to do the Dougie. Here’s a link to a video of Washington Wizards rookie John Wall doing the Dougie. I’m not sure what Sendek was doing, but gotta give the guy props for going on stage and giving it a go.
