Friday links: Will Jared Cunningham return?

Oregon State may lose star Jared Cunningham, who is contemplating a jump to the NBA.
The 6-4 junior guard finished second in the Pac-12 with an 18.1 scoring average and was a first-team all-conference selection.
Cunningham told the Register-Guard: “I haven’t made a decision at all yet. I’m just trying to finish school, finish this year out, and see where basketball is going to take me. If I’m going to be here next year, that’s going to be great. If I leave, that will be great, too.”
Got to wonder if Cunningham is the 2012 version of Stanford’s Jeremy Green. The Cardinal star surprised everyone and left school a year early, but was not drafted.
Cunningham had a breakout season, but he’s not generally included in most NBA mock drafts.
Here’s a look at top underclassmen who have declared for the draft.
The latest big name to leave college is Duke freshman Austin Rivers.
Obviously, Washington will have to deal with this situation next week in regards to Terrence Ross and Tony Wroten Jr., who are projected as first-round picks.
FRIDAY AFTERNOON LINKS:
— On this day in 1951, Washington lost 61-57 to Oklahoma A&M in the national semifinal game.
— Oregon coach Dana Altman talks about why he’s committed to the Ducks for at least another year.
— Arizona needs a point guard and it is looking at former Duquesne point guard T.J. McConnell who is going to transfer. If McConnell, the Atlantic 10’s Rookie of the Year in 2010-11, joins Arizona then that will likely means suspended guard Josiah Turner will not return.
— The Arizona Republic’s Paola Boivin discusses the state of the Arizona State basketball team after Trent Lockett became the 12th player in the past four years to leave the program.
