Tuesday morning links

A few links to get your day started.

TUESDAY MORNING LINKS:
— Washington State coach Ken Bone is gearing up for the biggest non-conference game for the Cougars when they host No. 10 Gonzaga on Wednesday. He told the Spokesman Review: “It might be their best team ever. It very well could be the best Gonzaga team they’ve ever had. Up to this point, you can definitely argue that. They have all the pieces and depth to be a really, really good team throughout the year.” Here’s video of his weekly press conference on Monday.
— UCLA coach Ben Howland is asking for patience as he tries to meld a team with four talented freshmen and a handful of veterans.
Utah will honor former coach Rick Majerus who died Saturday of heart failure.
— Here’s the Pac-12 release this week.
Nigel Williams-Goss, who signed a scholarship with Washington, flirted with a triple double while leading No. 2 Findlay Prep to a 108-40 win over White Rock Christian Academy, the fourth-ranked team in British Columbia. Williams-Goss finished with 15 points, eight rebounds and eight assists.
— In his first D-League game, former Washington star Tony Wroten Jr. scored a team-high 21 points for Reno in a 95-79 defeat.
— Interesting anonymous college basketball player survey by Athlon Sports. Washington coach Lorenzo Romar tallied 4 percent of the votes when players were asked which coach would you most like to play for. Hec Ed also received 4 percent of the votes when players were asked which was their favorite arena.
— Not necessarily Pac-12 related but, many believed it was a shrewd move for Kentucky coach John Calipari to coach the Dominican Republic national team because it gave him a recruiting advantage with players from that country. Well, Calipari’s gambit is paying off. Kentucky received a commitment from 6-11 forward Karl Towns, who is considered a top 2014 prospect in the Dominican.
