A packed Tuesday morning


We’ve got basketball games to go over, including a huge upset in the Pac-10. Football, that’s still going on. There is a lot of stuff on the link. Read on.


• Washington State: We’ll start with last night’s basketball victory over Eastern Washington. We had some notes and a raw version of the game story on this link, where we neglected to mention EWU out-rebounded the Cougars by seven. I do think the one consistent aspect of WSU early this year will be its inconsistency. That’s a product of youth. … FYI, Klay Thompson and Reggie Moore played 37 and 36 minutes, respectively. … Here’s our game story from the paper. … Freelancer Howie Stalwick had this story. … Turning over to football, we had this first look at Oregon State. … The Oregonian had a short examination of WSU.

• UPDATE: Paul Wulff said on the Pac-10 conference call linebacker Jason Stripling, who was arrested over the weekend, will not play the first quarter Saturday as punishment.

• Around the Pac-10: Not a lot today. … Washington: Coach Steve Sarkisian admits he and Jake Locker have talked, and will talk, about next year’s NFL draft. … The way the Huskies played at OSU, this bye week may be a tough one. … Oregon State: A quick look at how everything is stacked in the Beavers’ favor, except, maybe, the weather. They are playing WSU. Of course everything is stacked in their favor. … Oregon: What’s going on with LeGarrette Blount? Who knows. … California: There is no chance Jahvid Best will play in the Big Game this Saturday. … Stanford: The Cardinal are playing Cal this week? No, we want to talk about running it up against USC. … USC: The rout has Trojan players questioning themselves. …UCLA: The Bruins have some questions about their running game. … And now, after losing at home in double overtime to Cal State Fullerton, some about their basketball team. … Arizona State: No matter who plays quarterback, the game plan remains the same. … Arizona: Three-game stretch to finish will define the season.


• That’s all for the morning. We’ll be back later today with football items. Until then …
