Friday links: Jackson State begins Evergreen State tour with loss

Thought I’d pass along a few links.

FRIDAY MORNING LINKS:

— Here’s our game story from Bob Condotta on Washington’s 87-74 win over Seattle University last night. I wrote about Scott Suggs, who poured in a career-high 24 points. Dean Rutz also put together a photo gallery, including a great pic of C.J. Wilcox blocking a shot at the rim.

— And here’s the game stories in the Everett Herald, News Tribune and GoHuskies.com.

Jason King at ESPN.com rates Washington at No. 8 in this week’s Pac-12 power rankings.

Bud Withers thinks ESPN’s bracket guru Joe Lunardi is off his rockers for including six Pac-12 teams in his latest NCAA tournament projections. Withers thinks three, maybe four teams will make it.

— Who needs Washington? Certainly not Gonzaga. The Bulldogs aren’t caving on UW demands to play at a ‘neutral’ site in Seattle and it doesn’t appear as if their series, which stopped in 2007, will restart anytime soon. Meanwhile, the Zags continue to play Washington State in a true home-and-home. There’s talk they’ll begin playing Seattle University and now it appears as if they’ll play Arizona in a home-and-home series starting in 2014-15.

— Gonzaga coach Mark Few talked with KJR-AM on Thursday about conference realignment and Saturday’s game at KeyArena against Kansas State.

— Washington State knocked off winless Jackson State 52-41 in a peach-basket type of game last night. Brock Motum scored 27 for the Cougars who improved to 7-4. The Tigers (0-7) play Washington on Saturday and will face Seattle University before heading home.

Reggie Moore, who was kicked off the WSU team after three years in Pullman, plans to play at Division II Western Washington next season.

— California needs a solid performance from point guard Brandon Smith if it’s going to upset No. 16 Creighton on Saturday. And here’s an informative advance of the game.

— No. 8 Arizona will have to take care of the ball when it faces No. 5 Florida on Saturday.

— Washington recruit Aaron Gordon, who is also considering Arizona and Kentucky, lost a big game last night on ESPN. He scored 14 points for Archbishop Mitty, which came up short 56-53 in overtime to Travis Fort Bend (Texas) in Houston.
