WEDNESDAY MORNING LINKS:
— Oregon is under fire for its handling of three players who were involved in a sexual assault investigation and expelled from school. A KATU report alleges the Ducks may have delayed punishing the athletes to avoid negatively impacting its NCAA’s Academic Progress Rate.
— And here’s Oregon’s rebuttal.
— Meanwhile, the Ducks hired three new assistants.
— Looks like renovations to the Huntsmen Center are progressing.
— And finally, former Washington standout Justin Holiday signed a training camp contract with Golden State. The 25-year-old guard averaged 14.8 points and 5.0 rebounds in five summer league games with the Warriors, leading the team in scoring. It may be tough for Holiday to make the final cut to the 15-man roster because Golden State has a lot of depth on the wing. They Warriors are three deep at the shooting guard position with Klay Thompson, Brandon Rush and Leandro Barbosa.
