A quiet Monday on the WSU front


FROM PULLMAN — Another week, another three spring football practices. But there isn't one today, and there wasn't one yesterday, so we don't have a whole lot of WSU news for you. There are still links to pass along, though. And hey, you've got a national championship game to watch tonight.

Going out on a limb and picking Kentucky to win. Though if you've seen my bracket, you might think that's a kiss of death. … There really isn't much of note to report from WSU, as the Cougars don't practice again until tomorrow and the basketball team, which landed in Pullman late Saturday night after about 16 hours of travel from Pittsburgh, is finally into the offseason. I expect Ken Bone will hold his usual end-of-season teleconference at some point in the near future, though nothing has been set as of yet. … We do have at least one link to pass on, and that's a column by Jim Moore in the Kitsap Sun about Ryan Leaf. … Steve Kelley also opines on the Leaf situation in the Seattle Times. … The WSU baseball team was scheduled to complete its 3-game series against USC on Sunday, but the weather didn't cooperate, so the Cougars will have to wait until May 15 to get the game in.

Around the Pac-12 … Perhaps the biggest news in the conference yesterday was the unsurprising NBA draft declaration by Washington guard Terrence Ross, who will hire an agent soon and has played his final game as a Husky. UW begins spring football practices bright and early this morning with a new defensive outlook. … Arizona is still figuring out its depth chart. Who isn't? … Oregon State has plenty of work to do this spring. Previewing the Beavers' defensive backs. … Previewing Oregon's defensive backs. The Ducks have to replacesome key players. … Sorting out Colorado's receivers.

That's all we've got for now.
