— Washington was scheduled to host Isaac Hamilton over the weekend, but there’s conflicting reports among recruiting sites on whether he made the trip, if it’s been rescheduled or if the Huskies remain in contention for highly touted shooting guard out of Los Angeles.
— Arizona coach Sean Miller talks about Wednesday’s exhibition opener against Humboldt State. “Hopefully we can get off to a better start this time around,” said Miller referencing last year’s 69-68 exhibition defeat to Division II Seattle Pacific. Miller didn’t announce the entire starting lineup, but said senior wing Solomon Hill and freshman big man Grant Jerrett will start. Miller said in the past three years the Pac-12’s top teams haven’t been as good as other conferences and “our bottom has been really bad.”
— Last season Utah center Jason Washburn averaged 11 points and six rebounds per game — both career highs. The Utes are expecting another career year from the senior big man.
— UCLA officially opened Pauley Pavilion on Sunday night after it had been closed 18 months due to a $136-million renovation. On Saturday, the Bruins unveiled an 8-foot bronze statue of legendary coach John Wooden (right) that stands outside the arena.
— California is hosting “Halloween at Hass,” which is an open intra-squad scrimmage that will give Bears fans a chance to see the 2012-13 team, collect autographs and take pictures.
— Interesting move by Colorado coach Tad Boyle who had his players train with former Navy SEALs in an exercise known as “The Program.” The training regime received notoriety earlier this month when Maryland coach Mark Turgeon, Boyle’s mentor, had his players participate in the two-day workouts. Here’s a look at the video (below).
