Sports roundup: Huskies hope Price's big games continue vs. LSU … Players say no conflict with union in bounty case … Miller, Nelson, Knight among NBA Hall inductees
Hot dog: Keith Price is often his own worst critic. It's part of the humble nature that has quickly endeared the Washington quarterback to so many fans. So, when he came out following the Huskies' season-opening win over San Diego State and chastised himself despite completing a career-high 25 passes and throwing for a touchdown, it seemed natural. ''That's what makes 17 special,'' Washington coach Steve Sarkisian says. Price will need to be at his best if the Huskies (1-0) are to have any shot at pulling an upset Saturday night against No. 3 LSU (1-0) and the Tigers' standout defense.

Representation apprehension: Three players fighting suspensions from the NFL's bounty investigation have told a federal judge they are comfortable with their representation by union lawyers and see no potential conflict of interest in the arrangement. U.S. District Judge Ginger Berrigan this week expressed concern about failed settlement talks and said she was concerned about competing agendas—and whether New Orleans Saints defensive end Will Smith, Cleveland Browns linebacker Scott Fujita and free agent defensive lineman Anthony Hargrove should have separate lawyers, rather than the same lawyers representing the NFL Players Association. The NFLPA says it was willing to settle, but never got a single offer from the NFL.
Hoop dreams: Reggie Miller is joining his sister, Cheryl, in the basketball Hall of Fame. The former Indiana Pacers star will be inducted into the basketball shrine on Friday night along with Don Nelson, the winningest coach in NBA history, and Nike co-founder Phil Knight. Ralph Sampson, the only three-time college player of the year, and Jamaal Wilkes, who won two NCAA titles and four in the NBA, will also be inducted. See the rest of the inductees and get all the info on the Hall of Fame festivities here.
