Not much news on this holiday


FROM PULLMAN — This is Peter Gibbons' kind of Monday — a holiday, a day off from school, and a day off from work. For most, anyway. There isn't much out there in terms of news, but we've put together what links we found for your morning post.

There is very, very little out there pertaining to WSU. The baseball team picked up its first win of the season, beating Mississippi State in the first game of a double-header on Sunday. The Bulldogs won the second game to take the best-of-three series. And that's about all we have here. … UPDATE: Somehow missed this feature on Klay Thompson by Howie Stalwick in the Kitsap Sun.

There was one game in the Pac-12 yesterday. Oregon beat Stanford, 68-64, to salvage a split of the Bay Area trip and stay in NCAA tournament contention. Though I see's Joe Lunardi has slotted the Ducks into his “next four out” category in his latest Bracketology. Stanford was bad at the free throw line. … Bud Withers takes a good look at why the Pac-12 has fallen off so dramatically in recent years. … Jon Wilner has some thoughts on this weekend's Pac-12 happenings, and what it all means in regards to the NCAA tournament bubble. … Colorado's seniors return home this week for their final games at Coors Events Center. … Arizona is hoping to re-gain Jordin Mayes for the stretch run. … An Oregon State cornerback ran into some legal trouble over the weekend. … Utah still isn't winning, but the Utes are at least getting better.

All for now.
