Monday mailbag

Posted by Bob Condotta at 11:57 AM

It's Monday so I'll try to quickly answer a couple of questions.

• A few people asked how Spencer Hawes did in the Jordan Classic over the weekend. Here's a story that includes a good synopsis of how Hawes did, as well as other big-time recruits.

• A few others asked for some ratings of UW's recruiting class. Got to admit, that's something I can't do since I don't see all these high-schoolers play, spending the winter instead covering the Huskies themselves. But here's one ranking that is typical of how I think Washington's class is regarded.

Schedules released

The Pac-10 has already released the conference portion of next year's schedule. The Huskies will get tested right off the bat this year by going to USC and UCLA for the first two games. Unlike this year, at least UW will have some prior road experience as the Huskies also have a non-conference game at Gonzaga in early December and are still trying to fill in three other dates that could include another road game, although the most likely scenario is a road game during one of the weeks that the Huskies play WSU during the conference season.
