WSU prepares as Pac-10 plays


The Pac-10 gets back at it tonight. Everyone except WSU and Washington, of course. Those two will wait until Saturday afternoon to get back on the court. By then the Huskies will know if they are Pac-10 champs by themselves or if they have to defeat the Cougars to earn that distinction. With UCLA playing the two Oregon schools at home, the guess here is UW will need to win Saturday to avoid sharing the top spot with the Bruins. For more on what’s going on with the Cougars and the conference, read on.


• We posted the unedited version of our Klay Thompson’s improved defense story and other notes on this blog last night. But that isn’t all you can read today about WSU in general and Thompson in particular. The Times’ Bud Withers had this feature today on Thompson and his fit at WSU. Thompson’s name comes up again in this Scott Wolf column about USC in the South Bay Daily Breeze. And the jammed finger Taylor Rochestie suffered at practice yesterday – not the first I’ve seen him endure at practice this year – is the subject of a story in the News Tribune. … The P-I’s Dan Raley has his Pac-10 notebook today and picks Daven Harmeling as the conference’s established player who took the biggest fall this season. … Withers looks around at the college coaches who might be in trouble. … Speaking of coaches, Arizona will honor Lute Olson tonight, a day after it was revealed the NCAA is investigating possible violations under Olson’s watch.


• That’s it for this morning. We’ll be back as events warrant. Until then …
