Pac-12 Player of the Week C.J. Wilcox - Bob Stanton-USA TODAY Sports
A collection of Husky-related links for Monday, January 14th.
Hey, we're like soldiers. Would you go to the Roman army and ask them if they thought they were going to win the battle? If I didn't think we could win, I wouldn't be here. I'd stay home and get dots.
To help you Seahawk fans out there rinse away the sting of a heart-breaking defeat yesterday, here's a collection of dots for your pleasure:
- After sweeping the Bay Area schools, the Men's Basketball team is now 3-0 in conference, and by winning those first 3 on the road, they accomplished something they hadn't previously done since 1912. C.J. Wilcox continues to lead the way for this team, and he was rewarded by being named the Pac-12 Player of the Week.
- Here's Percy Allen's take on the Huskies after the sweep, and he concludes they have to now be considered one of the early favorites to win the conference. Heady stuff after a rough non-conference schedule slate that had people questioning the program.
- Speaking of basketball, the annual Martin Luther King Hoopfest is coming up on January 21st, and Jason McCleary at LeftCoastRecruiting.com provides his preview of the top prospects on display, including a number of Husky targets.
- Over at HuskyHaul.com, Jesse Kennemer takes a look at the football slate for 2013 and provides his early predictions for the season. How about it Dawg fans - would his predicted outcomes satisfy your expectations?
- Jon Wilner gets into the early predictions too, and has his first look at how he sees the Pac-12 divisions shaking out next year. He seems to have been hearing some of the grumbling about Sark from certain quarters...
- Kevin Gemmell takes a look back at the best moments in the Pac-12 this past season, and the Huskies get mentions - both good and bad.
- Over at the Seattle Times, the hard-working Bob Condotta takes an in-depth look at recruiting and where the Huskies stand currently. It's an excellent overview, and I'll dive into this in more detail tomorrow.
- This was linked in comments here by Lear Pilot, and is worth sharing - the UW has opened up another location for premium seating in the new Husky Stadium. If you can't swing the juice for those suites, at least you can enjoy an early peek at what the inside of the stadium will end up looking like.
