Day after for Cougs, game day for others


FROM PORTLAND — It's just about time to fly back to Spokane, but first, our daily Pac-12 roundup and some more WSU notes.

We have our game story, which focuses on how much better WSU fared against Oregon this time around while still falling short. And as usual, we had a postgame overview on the blog. … Steve Kelley covered the game for the Seattle Times. … Howie Stalwick has a story in the News Tribune. … Here's the view from the Oregon side. … The win kept the Ducks in the Pac-12 title chase. George Schroeder has a column from the game.

Around the Pac-12 …

Arizona 70, Utah 61: The Wildcats had “pathetic confidence,” according to their coach, but still gutted it out. Utah hasn't won a road game this season, but the loss was still “heartbreaking.”

California 73, UCLA 63: The Bruins had their schedule cleared by first-place Cal. The Bears built a big lead before holding on.

Colorado 63, Arizona State 49: Size wasn't a problem for the Buffaloes, who turned a close game early into a blowout. ASU still hasn't won consecutive games this season.

There will be lots of NBA talent playing in Corvallis tonight (UW at OSU, 2:30 p.m.). … Turnover margin could be important when USC faces Stanford tonight (4:30 p.m.).

All for now. We'll be back when events merit.
