Get an early glimpse at a possible 2017 UW recruit

Spoke with Matt McCabe whose 12-year-old son Jordan will perform at halftime tonight. Jordan is is considered one of the best basketball dribblers/players at his age in the country. He has amazing dexterity, hand-eye coordination and a flare for the dramatic.
It’s no wonder one of his favorite players is legendary Pistol Pete Maravich.
Jordan has performed at about eight games and the clip (above) is from the Wisconsin Badgers game in January 2009. He moved to Issaquah about six months ago and attends Beaver Laker Middle School. Jordan also plays for the Seattle Rotary AAU team.
The McCabes moved here from Wisconsin about six months ago and Jordan is becoming a UW fan. Maybe the Huskies will sign him in 2017.
MONDAY AFTERNOON LINKS:
— Here’s our advance of tonight’s Washington-Portland game.
— Insightful story from the Everett Herald on Marysville product Jared Stohl, the Pilots star shooting guard who led the nation in three-point accuracy last season.
The News Tribune takes a look at Isaiah Thomas who is UW’s leading scorer, but he’s doing more than ever before.
MontlakeMadness.com offers this advance.
— USC led from start to finish in a dominating 73-56 win over No. 19 Texas. Nikola Vucevic was the star scoring a career-high 24 points on nine-for-17 shooting. He also had nine rebounds. The win gives the Pac-10 two wins in nine games against ranked teams.
— Can’t explain how UCLA can lose at No. 4 Kansas by a point in a game that should have went into overtime, then come home and fall 66-57 in its next outing to Montana of the Big Sky Conference. The Bruins (3-4) may have driven off the mental cliff after losing their fourth straight game.
— And speaking of bad losses, Arizona State is off to its worst start since the 1998-99 season after losing 67-61 at home to Richmond. Maybe it’s not all bad considering the Sun Devil’s four defeats have come against teams ranked in the top 43 of the Sagarin college-basketball computer ratings. Still, 3-4 is not the way to start the season.
— When a good Arizona team hosts a bad Oklahoma team you get an 83-60 Wildcats win.
— Oregon held Portland State without a field goal in the final 10 minutes to claim a 68-49 victory. PSU shot 16 of 54 from the field and the Vikings scored their fewest number of points in three years.
Doug Haller at the Arizona Republic posted his weekly look at the Pac-10, which includes power rankings. He has Washington at the top of the list.
