Mike Moser may be nearing a decision

Jon Rothstein at CBS New York makes an astute point about the college basketball offseason when he likens it to NBA free agency. In recent years, we’ve seen an uptick in seniors graduate from their old schools, receive immediate waivers to play next season and shop for a new home.

Oregon has sustained the program the past two years with that type of player. And now Washington is hoping to cash in as well with Mike Moser, a coveted 6-8 senior forward who is expected to graduate from UNLV.

Rothstein believes Moser could make a decision Friday or over the weekend between the Huskies, Ducks and Gonzaga.

Moser, a Portland native, told Adam Zagoria “It’s definitely a tough decision.”

He added: “You can’t ignore Gonzaga’s track record of making it to NCAA Tournament and winning conference tournament titles. It’s a great program that gains a lot of national exposure.

“Washington has added some impressive pieces and will be better next year. They’ve sent a lot of players to the NBA. And Oregon has come a long way in the past three years, not to mention the fact that’s where I’m from. But all in all, these three schools have three amazing elite coaches. I don’t think anyone can argue that.”

AROUND THE PAC-12:

The Pac-12 hired Ice Miller LLP to conduct its independent review of the officiating scandal during the conference’s men’s basketball tournament in Las Vegas last month. Ice Miller LLP has a branch specializing in NCAA-related matters. One of its attorneys who handles sports, Stuart Brown will head the review.

— We’re starting to get a consensus on who the national media feels will be the Pac-12′s featured players heading into the 2013-14 season. CBSsports.com didn’t include Pac-12 player on its early preseason all-America teams. However, UCLA’s Jordan Adams and Kyle Anderson, Arizona State’s Jahii Carson and Arizona’s Aaron Gordon were added to a 20-man players to watch list.
