Las Vegas tourneys feature UW prospects

The summer evaluation period ends this weekend for Division I coaches and there’s a big gathering of elite talent in Las Vegas for three prominent tournaments.
Washington coaches are expected to be on hand to watch 2013 recruits Aaron Gordon, Jabari Bird, Marcus Lee and 2014 prospect Stanley Johnson in the Las Vegas Classic while ’13 star Isaac Hamilton is playing in the adidas Super 64.
The other high-profile tourney is the Fab 48.
FRIDAY MORNING LINKS:
Adam Zagoria compiles a top 12 list of schools in good shape with recruits heading into the final evaluation period and he lists Washington at No. 7.
— According to Scout.com’s Evan Daniels, Gordon’s top seven list includes: Washington, Arizona, Kentucky, Oregon, Kansas, New Mexico and Stanford. Gordon said: “I’m going to probably take my five visits to Oregon, Washington, Kentucky, Kansas and then I’m not sure where I’ll go with my last one. … I’m going to take a visit to Arizona for the Red/Blue game. I know I’m going to schedule one to Oregon. I think I scheduled the Washington visit.”
Nigel Williams-Goss, a 2013 recruit who verbally committed to UW, drew praise after his performances at the LeBron James Skill Academy.
C.J. Wilcox told the Salt Lake Tribune: “This is a big year for sure, but I’m ready for it to start. I think we have the chance to have a really good team. I just want to win. That’s my first goal. Everything else is secondary.”
— Washington State will play 17 games at Beasley Coliseum and the highlights of the schedule include the CBE Classic in Kansas City, Mo and a non-conference game against Buffalo on Dec. 21 in the Cougar Hardwood Classic at KeyArena.
— Colorado also released its schedule.
— Former UW star Nate Robinson was unharmed during a gun shootout at a Harlem’s Rucker Park.
