WEDNESDAY LINKS:
— Had a chance this morning to listen to Washington football coach Steve Sarkisian talk about Austin Seferian-Jenkins and the chance he’ll return to the basketball team. Sark was non-committal on the idea. ASJ and Sark will discuss it after the football season ends. When asked if playing basketball had a negative impact on ASJ’s football season, Sark was unsure. He said he’d be able to answer the question after a little more time. Here’s video of the interview.
— Keep your eye on 2013 prospect Kameron Rooks, a 7-foot center from San Marcos, Calif. He recently told Area Codes Basketball that he’s been receiving plenty of interest from Washington, Arizona, Arizona State, St. Mary’s and Pittsburgh. He’s made an official visit to Drake and has four trips remaining. ESPN and Scout rates Rooks a three-star prospect and he’s not ranked by Rivals.
Marcus Lee chose Kentucky over California. The Wildcats have assembled the No. 1 recruiting class of 2013 prospects and is reportedly pursuing Aaron Gordon, who is also considering Washington, Arizona, Oregon and Kansas.
— In case you missed it, the Portland Trail Blazers signed former Washington star Justin Holiday on Sunday. He played less than a minute in his Portland debut Monday, a 117-100 defeat at Sacramento. Former UW star Isaiah Thomas tallied three points in four assists in 11 minutes as a reserve for the Kings.
— Somewhat of a slow rookie start offensively for former UW star Terrence Ross, who is battling through injuries and averaging 7.3 points in three preseason games for Toronto.
— NBA rookie Tony Wroten Jr., the former UW standout, missed his first preseason game due to an ankle injury.
