Friday from WSU


Surprisingly, there is a lot to get to this morning, including a trio of items related to Washington State. So let's get right to it. Read on.


• Washington State: Coach Ken Bone did a short radio stint with Jim Moore yesterday afternoon and what he said about DeAngelo Casto can give any Cougar fan pause. Bone said it's 50/50 whether Casto will return for his senior year or turn professional. That's a huge change from a few weeks ago when I last talked with Casto about his future. You can listen to the entire interview here. … Nick Daschel has his thoughts about the NIT second-round game with Oklahoma State on Cougfan. … The Cowboys responded well to playing in the NIT.


• Around the Pac-10: The NCAA tournament really opened yesterday and there were some really exciting games. One of them was UCLA's 78-76 win over Michigan State, a game that shouldn't have been that close but one the Bruins had trouble closing out. … Washington jumps into the fray tonight at 6:45 against Georgia. It's a relaxed UW group that will face a Bulldog team making its first NCAA appearance in a while. It comes under coach Mark Fox, a former UW assistant. … Arizona also gets going today, facing former UA assistant Josh Pastner and Memphis. … California and Oregon are also still playing, with the Bears ready for a Pac-12 preview in the NIT – they are at Colorado – and the Ducks hosting well-traveled Duquesne. … Another Pac-10 big man has a decision to make concerning his future.


• That's it for this morning. We'll be doing interviews today for the preview stories, so we might be back if something interesting develops. Until later …
