Monday morning Pac-12 links


FROM PULLMAN — There was news from WSU on Sunday, though not from the sport using the roundball. We have plenty of those kind of links from around the conference, though, so read on.

The big story out of Pullman yesterday was the reported hiring of Mike Breske as the team's defensive coordinator. We have a story on that here. The Missoulian in Montana quotes Breske in this story. Again, there has been no formal announcement of any coaching staff hires, but as detailed in the story, it appears Mike Leach is very close to having everything in place. Freelancer Howie Stalwick also had this story in the Kitsap Sun. And, once again, Breske's bio on Montana's official athletic site.

Around the Pac-12: There were two basketball games yesterday, an extra treat for Pac-12 hoops fans not satisfied with the NFL playoffs — although that Tebow character sure seems to entertain. … The Oregon Ducks couldn’t guard Allen Crabbe in a 77-60 loss to Cal. The Bears guard said he needs to be more aggressive. Oregon probably disagrees. … There were more Arizona fans than USC fans at the Galen Center yesterday to watch the Wildcats beat the Trojans. Arizona won with defense, though that isn’t very difficult against USC. … ASU dismissed leading scorer Keala King upon returning to Tempe yesterday. He’d been suspended for the LA trip. … Utah is establishing its identity on defense. … Colorado has proven it can win at home. Now it needs to win some games on the road to prove it’s for real.

All for now.
