There’s just two unbeaten teams in the Pac-12: No.3 Arizona (6-0) and Washington (3-0).

If the Huskies remain perfect this week in California, they’ll return to Seattle with the DirecTV Wooden Legacy title – their first out-of-state holiday title since winning the Alaska Shootout in 2004.

THANKSGIVING MORNING LINKS:

— Here’s a good rundown on the Wooden Legacy, which identifies Washington’s Nigel Williams-Goss as the tournament’s top player.

— More on the UW and the Wooden Legacy from the News Tribune.

— Another Wooden Legacy preview, which tabs Xavier, UW and Long Beach State as the title favorites.

— Washington plays either Long Beach State or Western Michigan on Friday in the semifinals or the consolation rounds. It’s a stiff test for the 49ers.
