Necessity forced 6-5 C.J. Wilcox to slide into the power forward spot in the high-post offense and the senior standout responded with a game-high tying 22 points, seven rebounds and four assists in Sunday’s season-opening 88-78 win over Seattle University.

The Huskies (1-0) are waiting to hear news about sophomore forward Jernard Jarreau, who injured his right knee and left the game at the 18:25 mark. He’s expected to undergo a MRI exam today.

It’s unlikely he’ll play Thursday when UW hosts UC-Irvine. However, senior forward Perris Blackwell, who missed the season opener due to a concussion, is expected to be available.

MONDAY MORNING LINKS:

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

— Colorado (1-1) bounced back from a season-opening loss and dropped UT-Martin 91-65 thanks to forward Josh Scott who had 15 points and eight rebounds.

— Oregon State’s 78-73 defeat to Coppin State was bad for the Beavers (0-1) and the Pac-12. But mostly it was bad for coach Craig Robinson, whose future in Corvallis, Ore. would seem to be in question if OSU doesn’t have a successful season. Still, senior guard Roberto Nelson, who scored a career-best 36 points, pinned the stunning defeat on the players who didn’t follow the game plan.

— Very interesting article by Bruce Pascoe at the Arizona Daily Star, which takes a look at the transfer culture that’s threatening to ruin college basketball.

— Here’s a closer look at Aaron Gordon’s debut last Friday at Arizona.

— Very little change in the Associated Press top 25 poll, which includes No. 6 Arizona, No. 18 Oregon and No. 24 UCLA.

— Stanford picked up a verbal agreement from 2014 recruit Reid Travis, a 6-7 forward ranked No. 40 overall by Rivals.com.
