San Diego State hurting, UW rising in recruiting rankings and trouble at Oregon

Here’s a few links to digest for a mid-week snack.

WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON LINKS:

San Diego State could be without newcomers Zylan Cheatham and Malik Pope when the Aztecs play Washington Dec. 7 at Alaska Airlines Arena. Cheatham had foot surgery Sept. 2 and is expected to return late December/early January. Meanwhile Pope still has not been cleared after breaking his leg last year. SDSU, which was 27-3 last season and advanced made its fifth straight trip to the NCAA tournament, is one of the biggest opponents on UW’s nonconference schedule.

— Circle your calendars. Dejounte Murray and the Rainier Beach Vikings host Matisse Thybulle¬†and the Eastside Catholic Crusaders at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday Jan. 13 in a rematch of last season’s Class 3A state title game. It’s also a meeting between the state’s top two ranked players, both who verbally committed to Washington. Here’s a look at the Metro League schedule.

— Washington’s 2015 class moved up two spots to No. 7 in the national ranking, according to 24/7 Sports. The Huskies moved up one spot to No. 8 on ESPN’s ranking.

— Cool story by Mason Kelley at GoHuskies.com about the relationship between former Washington standout Will Conroy and sophomore point guard Nigel Williams-Goss.

— Trouble at Oregon. The Ducks will begin practice Friday and JaQuan Lyle, a five-star freshman guard, isn’t enrolled in classes. It appears as if Oregon is waiting word from the NCAA Clearinghouse on if Lyle will be eligible this season. The Ducks have 10 players on their roster.

— Lots of stars at Arizona, but junior guard Gabe York could be one of the biggest surprises for the Wildcats.

— In response to low graduation rates in football, men’s basketball and six other sports, California will adopt a stricter academic policy.
