Day-before-Washington links


FROM PULLMAN — Good news: only three more days without cable and wired Internet. Bad news: Three more days without cable and wired Internet. Ah, the joys of moving. Anyway, we at least have a company-issued MiFi card to get us through these oh-so-trying times, and friends kind enough to let us watch BCS bowl games at their house. So there is that. Anyway, read on for links.

Not much out there on Washington State  — we did have our live chat yesterday and will have more later today on the blog and in tomorrow's newspaper — though the Kitsap Sun does have this note that quotes Marquess Wilson's high school coach as saying he thinks Fresno State is interested in Wilson. … Washington coach Lorenzo Romar spoke to the media yesterday, and said that Brock Motum might be the most versatile player in the conference. He gives a good explanation of what he means in the video here. The Huskies are trying to prove this week that they are progressing. Austin Seferian-Jenkins won't play basketball against WSU on Saturday, or against anyone this season.

In Pac-12 basketball news … Arizona lost to Colorado last night. Right? Nope. Not with Pac-12 officials on the case. A buzzer-beating 3-point shot by Colorado was ruled not to have beaten the buzzer — decide for yourself — and the Wildcats escaped with a 92-83 win in overtime. … USC surprised Stanford, 71-69, in the teams' Pac-12 opener. … UCLA continued its hot streak by taking a 79-65 win over California. … Utah is trying to shrug off its close loss to Arizona State in its Pac-12 opener.

In Pac-12 football news … Oregon jumped to an early lead and cruised to a 35-17 win over Kansas State in the Fiesta Bowl, a game that might have been Chip Kelly's last as the Ducks' coach. It certainly felt that way.

That's all we have for now.
