There were two Pac-12 men's basketball games last night, each involving a team tied for first place in the Pac-12 standings. The Huskies don't play until Sunday (at Washington State), but coach Lorenzo Romar and players will be available to speak with media today. An expected topic: the likely return of junior forward Jernard Jarreau, who has been out since Jan. 10 (also against WSU) following surgery to repair the meniscus in his right knee. Read on for a few links.
--- Former Huskies and Curtis High School star Isaiah Thomas, who signed a four-year, $27 million contract with the Phoenix Suns prior to this season, was traded on Thursday to the Boston Celtics among a flurry of NBA trade-deadline activity.
--- Interesting column here that proposes a few (completely hypothetical) college basketball trade scenarios. One includes Nigel Williams-Goss.
