Wednesday's Best Tweet:
- Thanks to LMU's win over the St. Mary's Gael's on Wednesday night, Gonzaga has a chance to win its 12th straight West Coast Conference regular season title. However, the Zags still have four conference games remaining, including a daunting road game against San Francisco; they've lost at USF these past two seasons. The Slipper Still Fits is celebrating.
- Tony Wroten was named a finalist for the Wayman Tisdale Award, an award given to the nation's best freshmen. The other finalists are Cody Zeller (Indiana), Austin Rivers (Duke), Anthony Davis (Kentucky) and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (Kentucky). I'm guessing Anthony Davis will win it, but the very fact Wroten is in the discussion with these four other guys says a lot about how good he has been for the Huskies this season.
- Klay Thompson jumped to No. 2 in Grantland's NBA Rookie Rankings. The former Cougar and current Golden State Warrior is shooting 50% from three, good for third overall in the NBA. Nate Robinson is also starring for Golden State, the former Husky is averaging 10.0 points and 4.3 assists a game.
- On the subject of former Huskies, Jon Brockman put out another trick-shot video. My favorite? The shot from the 400 level. That's how it's done:
- Extras: Art Thiel from Sports Press NW praises Darnell Gant...The Huskies will join Ohio State, Seton Hall and a host of other teams in the Basketball Hall of Fame Tip-Off Tournament in November in Connecticut...the guys at Lookout Landing recorded a podcast.
