Arizona Wildcats freshman Aaron Gordon was one of four freshmen named to the Oscar Robertson Player of the Year watch list.

Gordon was also one of only two Pac-12 players on the 15-player list, joining ASU sophomore guard Jahii Carson.

All players are eligible for the Oscar Robertson Award, one of three major player of the year awards, but the watch list honor was yet another indication of the respect Gordon is receiving nationally.

Zach Peters is expected to be cleared fully today, if you missed that post.

ASU athletic director Steve Patterson is leaving for the same job at Texas.

Australian forward Jonah Bolden of Findlay Prep doesn't list Arizona as one of the schools that is recruiting him the hardest.

Athlon Sports posted its Arizona preview.
