UNLV honing in on Que Johnson; Richard Peters visits WSU

Demarquise ‘Que’ Johnson, who visited Washington last weekend but left town without committing to the Huskies, reportedly received an in-home visit Tuesday from UNLV coach Dave Rice.
According to the Las Vegas Sun, Johnson is expected to visit the Rebels on Oct. 7.
He’s also considering Washington State and Gonnzaga.
In other recruiting news, Richard Peters is reportedly visiting Washington State this weekend.
The 6-10 Canadian forward has had an on-again, off-again recruiting relationship with Washington since decommitting from Oklahoma. He told NBE Basketball that he’s keeping his options open. Clemson and Seton Hall are also among his top suitors.

— Five-star 2012 recruit Anthony Bennett (above), who has Washington on his list of nine potential destinations, played well last night in the nightcap at the Fullcourt Press Las Vegas Showcase. Reportedly he’s not going to choose a school until the spring regular signing period that begins April 11, 2012.
— It’s easy to like Zena Edosomwan, the 2012 big man who lists Washington, Cal, USC, Texas and Harvard in his top five favorites. Here’s a story on the 6 foot 8 forward before his Harvard visit last week.
— Very nice story from Gregg Bell at about coach Lorenzo Romar and the team volunteering at Union Gospel Mission.
— Interesting analytical look at the past six NCAA tournaments by Jeff Taylor at Husky Haul.
— It’s a little old, but Jim Basnight at watched an open run last week and believes freshman Shawn Kemp Jr. will play ahead of freshman Martin Breunig in the rotation.
— The Sporting News counts down its top 50 preseason picks. Five Pac-12 teams are on the list, including No. 42 Oregon.
— The Arizona Republics’s Doug Haller talks with Arizona State junior Carrick Felix who talked about his rocky first season with the Sun Devils.
Rhys Murphy might consider changing his No. 13 jersey. The Oregon State sophomore forward broke a bone in his left foot on the first day of practice his freshman year and had to sit out the season. The next season he broke a bone in his wrist and played in just four games. Talk about hard luck. Despite it all, he’s not a superstitious person.
— In case you missed it, Colorado’s Damiene Cain, a 6 foot 7 forward, quit the basketball team to focus on academics. It’s a big blow to the Buffs because the 6 foot 7 forward was supposed to be their No. 1 option in the post this season.
— Former USC players Marcus Johnson, Marcus Simmons and Alex Stepheson are playing professionally overseas.
— Former Maryland coach Gary Williams is pushing for a basketball commissioner to oversee college hoops.
