  • The Huskies stayed in first place after their 75-72 victory over the Beavers on Sunday afternoon. Terrence Ross finished with 21 points and 13 rebounds, it was his sixth double-double of the season. With a 6.7 rebound average, could he one of the most underrated rebounders in the nation? Next up: vs. Arizona St., Thursday at Hec Ed.
  • Anyone have an NBA comparison for Tony Wroten? Joe Kaiser from ESPN Insider thinks Tyreke Evans, while Kevin Pelton from Basketball Prospectus suggests that Jeremy Lin may be similar. Would a Rajon Rando comparison be too much of a stretch?
  • Before Jeremy Lin went on a tear for the New York Knicks, Ronald "Flip" Murray went on a similar out-of-nowhere-holy-crap-is-this-happening stretch for the Seattle Supersonics back in 2003. Murray scored more than 20 points in 10 out of the Sonics' 11 first games of the 2003-04 season; he was replacing the injured Ray Allen at the time. Here's a game recap from when Murray was in the middle of his incredible run.
  • Q13 Sports' Aaron Levine blasted Steve Kelley's recent column on forgiving David Stern by saying, "Unless forgiving Stern is simply a ploy to soften the commissioner up for an interview, I just don't get the rationale." I'm never forgiving Stern — yes I want the Sonics back, but kissing Stern's butt is not necessary.
  • Spring Training started yesterday. Yes, it really did. Here's an in-depth AP report on the Mariners first spring workout that featured new Mariner pitcher Hisashi Iwakuma.
