Former UW stars making waves at home and abroad
It’s hardly surprising considering the Brockness Monster has been a hit with the fans wherever he goes. (Except Houston where his stay was short-lived due to a freak training injury.)
Otherwise, Brockman has been a crowd favorite since his early days at Snohomish High School.
Meanwhile, former UW star Justin Dentmon received a 10-day contract from the Dallas Mavericks. He averaged a league-leading 26 points, 3.5 rebounds and 3.4 assists in 22 games with the Texas Legends in the NBA Development League.

— While his Arizona career has been longer and less decorated, Solomon Hill hopes to follow former Wildcats star Derrick Williams to the NBA. Hill told the Arizona Daily Star: “I think it was a little difficult for me to see that Derrick was so naturally good at what he did on the court. Some people may say he wasn’t the best practice player, but the fact that he did what he did in the games, you have to respect that. It was just understanding that I’m not him. I can’t just do what he does. There had to be a little more sacrifice on my end.”
— Oregon’s three-point shooting has helped the Ducks during the postseason.
— Tad Boyle has spent three years at Colorado and he’s not ready to leave the Buffaloes any time soon.
