Friday's game reports, plus recruiting items

Seattle paired off with same-city rival Washington and the Huskies jumped out to a 49-27 halftime lead. That more or less held up with the contest ending 87-74 in Coach Lorenzo Romar's favor. Seattle's Chad Rasmussen went for 19 points on 5-8 long distance shooting. The Redhawks were outshot 54% to 37% and connected on just 14-27 free throws.

Percy Allen offered a live game thread.

Texas Arlington matched up with visiting Houston Baptist and a whomping ensued as the Mavericks prevailed 81-47 with four of Coach Scott Cross' talents scoring in double figures: Karol Gruszecki with 18 points, 13 from Cameron Catlett, 11 by Kevin Butler and Jordan Reves totaled 10 plus 13 boards.

Westwind Prep posted a pair of WAC-connected tweets.

First: "San Jose State after 2013 combo guard Larry Lewis. SJS moving into Mtn West conference needs to up its talent and looking at WPA players"

Texas San Antonio is also all over Lewis, including extending an offer as Inside Runner Sports reported back in August.

Then: "SJS also interested in local Bay Area big man 6'10" Miles Martin at WPA National"

Here's a February 2012 report on Lewis as a senior in high school. 

As for Martin, Anthony Ray/Arizona Preps wrote this some time back:

Miles Martin is a native of Cupertino, California, where he attended Homestead High School last season. While Martin is also a developing post prospect as well, he is much further along offensively than Okonkwo, but not as athletic. Martin is a good-sized post presence with a nice frame already, but still developing low post skills. He has a soft touch from mid-range and has solid footwork, but still is improving his ability to make plays inside and finish strong around the rim. He simply needs touches of the basketball and continued low post skillwork to develop as a post prospect for the collegiate level. Martin is a solid rebounder but needs to become quicker off his feet to see improvement in this area of his game. He runs the floor well for his size, but needs to be more athletic to become much more effective against top-rated low post prospects.

Martin’s best attribute currently is his sheer size. He also has some upside as a player, and has worked hard this fall to become much stronger physically and to tone up his large frame. This season spent at Westwind will also serve him a great deal as he works hard to improve his approach to the game. Currently, Martin is a low to mid-major division-I prospect that will see his share of much higher recruitment as a result of his size as a post prospect.

No games involving WAC teams are scheduled for tonight.
