Wroten is the best left-hander out of Seattle Garfield High since Jimi Hendrix, and the Huskies made sure to keep him in town. Kentucky, Kansas, UConn, Syracuse, et al, were interested, but Wroten made only one recruiting visit to Louisville before signing with the Huskies. He was ranked behind only Kentucky freshman Marquis Teague and Arizona freshman Josiah Turner in the 2011 point guard class.

Romar said he’s still open to the idea of the 6-foot-6 standout joining the team, but added: “that’s a football decision.”
Before Robinson gained national fame by winning three slam-dunk contests despite being just 5-foot-9, he made a name for himself as a super-sub with the New York Knicks. In his best season, 2008-09, he averaged 17.2 points in 29.9 minutes.
When he’s on his game, Robinson — who starred in basketball and football at the University of Washington — also brings toughness and physicality in the backcourt.
*Editor’s note: There is also a slight against Klay Thompson in the above article.
the play of Jimmer Fredette and Isaiah Thomas in garbage time was fun to watch, even though it was against the Grizzlies scrubs with the game out of reach. Thomas (16 MIN, 15 PTS, 5 REB, 3 AST) should play more; he’s about the closest thing we have to a true floor general. He provides a variety of skills that we need: solid on-ball defending, and he always manages to get in the lane. On top of that, he’s an above average shooter.
Hall and Sims both signed National Letters of Intent with the UW football program last February but did not enroll until now.
That is when Washington commit Jeff Lindquist subbed in for the West and changed the momentum of the game. Lindquist led his West teammates on two scoring drives in his three series.
Junior linebacker Vontaze Burfict is expected to announce this week, possibly Tuesday, that he will forgo his final season at Arizona State and declare for the NFL draft.
