Check out what Oregon has in store for Matt Knight Madness

At most places, they toss t-shirts into the stands to fans searching for a souvenir. At Oregon, they’re giving away the Limited Edition Pit Crew Air Jordan 3.
The first 1,000 students to Friday’s Matt Knight Madness will receive a raffle coupon and 10 pairs of the Nike shoes will be given away as prizes.
The Ducks men’s and women’s basketball teams will hold a short scrimmage during the exhibition. Here’s a look at a video (below) promoting the event. Got to admit, the song and video is catchy. Reminds me of Washington’s old Dancing Dawgs video clip.
The Huskies start fall practice Friday with a three-day training camp off campus.

SATURDAY MORNING LINKS:
— No link, but prized recruit Demarquise Johnson is expected to visit UNLV this weekend. We’ll post more after his trip.
— Looks like four-star prospect Dominic Artis, who decommitted from UCLA this week, may still be headed to the Bruins.
— Here’s a preview on Stanford and Oregon.
— The Arizona Republic’s Doug Haller caught up with Arizona State sophomore forward Kyle Cain for an interview on a wide variety of topics.
— I don’t think Louisville’s Rick Pitino and Kentucky’s John Calipari are going to share a beer anytime soon. Pitino blasts Calipari after the Wildcats coach verbally jabbed the Cardinals.
Kentucky is holding an exhibition game between its all-stars and a team comprised of players who have tormented the Wildcats in the past.
— Not sure why Calipari is in the news so much recently, but here’s a story on the UK coach’s agreement to pay $232,000 over four years to avoid a lawsuit from Memphis season ticket holders over the Tigers 2008 season. Memphis was forced to vacate all wins from the season because the team used an ineligible player believed to be Derrick Rose. The former Tigers star has also agreed to pay $100,000 in the settlement.
