The beat goes on with Pac-12 links

COUGARS

FROM PULLMAN -- Set a new personal record by covering the 72 miles between Spokane and Pullman in just a shade over an hour. Just in time to put together our morning post.

On the basketball side, we have our game story from ASU's 71-67 win, plus our usual postgame entry with a quick overview. Also, we have a story giving an overview of WSU's football recruiting efforts so far. ... Bud Withers has a look at the Cougars' assistant coaches. ... The AP has a recap of Saturday's game. ... Here's the game story from the Arizona Republic. ... Lakes receiver Cedric Dozier will choose between Cal and WSU. ...

Here's a look at Saturday's Pac-12 action ...

Washington 69, Arizona 67: Tony Wroten blocked a shot in the final seconds to move the Huskies into first place by themselves (for now, anyway). A questionable blocking call allowed UW to take the lead late.

UCLA 77, Colorado 60: The Bruins ran away with this one at home, yet it's considered an upset. Colorado fell apart after halftime.

USC 62, Utah 45: Trojans win! Trojans win! And Utah loses. Again.

And today's games ...

Oregon State at Oregon, 3:30 p.m.: Kevin McShane knows what it means to be a Beaver. Garrett Sim doesn't. Not anymore, anyway. The game will be decided by toughness.

Stanford at California, 5:30 p.m.: Both teams are waiting for their sophomore classes to mature.

That's all we have for now. We'll be back if events merit.
