Tuesday morning links; My Q&A about all things UW

Here’s a few links to get you started.
— I sat down with Griffin Bennett at Montlake Madness last week for a candid conversation about the Huskies. Here’s the Q&A.
— Interesting to note NBAdraft.net has a 2013 mock draft that includes four Huskies: No. 9 Tony Wroten Jr., No. 27 C.J. Wilcox, No. 50 Abdul Gaddy and No. 56 Aziz N’Diaye.
— Nevada junior guard Malik Story was named the Western Athletic Conference Player of the Week. He averaged 19.7 points, 3.0 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 0.7 steals per game and led the Wolf Pack to a 2-1 record last week. Washington plays at Nevada 8 p.m. Friday.
— USC might be the unluckiest team in the Pac-12. The injury-plagued Trojans will lose 7-foot center Dewayne Dedmon for at least a week due to a stress injury in his right foot, according to Baxter Holmes at the Los Angeles Times.
— Oregon coach Dana Altman said he hasn’t spoken to Jabari Brown, the talented freshman guard who quit the team, in over a week, which suggests the two sides will not reunite. Altman implied Brown will likely finish classes at Oregon this semester before transferring. Recruiting rumors suggest Missouri, Memphis, Gonzaga, San Diego State, and San Jose State are possible destinations for Brown.
— The announced attendance for Monday’s UCLA game at the 14,500-seat Los Angeles Sports Arena: 3,885. Only 34 students were in attendance. Ouch. Talk about lifeless. The Bruins are playing across town this season while Pauley Pavilion is being renovated.
— The Pac-12 named Lydia Murphy-Stephans, a former Olympic speed skater, to be executive vice president and general manager of Pac-12 Networks, due to launch in August.
John Canzano at the Oregonian writes the Portland Trail Blazers will release three-time All-Star Brandon Roy, who has been plagued by knee injuries and will make $15M this season.
