Jon Brockman makes mid-season Wooden list

The list of Wooden Award (college basketball player of the year) condidates has been cut from a preseason list of 50 to a mid-season list of 30, and UW forward Jon Brockman remains among them.

Huskies-Wildcats … bigger than the old days?

Just two and three seasons ago, an Arizona-Washington men’s basketball game was crucial to the title race of the Pacific-10 Confernce. These days both teams are smack in the middle of the league race at 3-3. In an odd way, that makes today’s game in Tucson more important than the old days.

A win could loom particularly large for the Huskies, who after
