Happy Thursday. Celebrate the occasion with links.
--- Pac-12 men’s basketball media day will be held today at the Pac-12 studios in San Francisco. I won’t be there, but here’s a schedule of events. UW coach Lorenzo Romar and senior guard Andrew Andrews are scheduled to appear on the Pac-12 live stream at 10:40 a.m. Here’s a link to the live stream.
--- Our story in today’s newspaper focuses on freshman tailback Myles Gaskin, who leads the Huskies in rushing and has impressed with his patience and maturity.
--- The Pac-12’s VP of officiating, David Coleman, tells ESPN.com that the targeting call made against Huskies linebacker Azeem Victor in last week’s win over USC was correct. His explanation, in part: “The targeting was called for the hit on the defenseless quarterback for forcible contact to the head or neck area. It was helmet to helmet contact. When the play was reviewed by instant replay, the call on the field stood. A defenseless player cannot be hit by an opponent with forcible contact in the head or neck area with the hand, fist, forearm, elbow, shoulder or helmet.”
