FROM SEATTLE — We're hitting the road shortly for the trek back to Pullman. That's a trip the WSU basketball team already made last night — though it did it on an airplane and a bus — and it's a good thing, because the Cougars have to play another basketball game on Wednesday. We have links from the basketball game it played yesterday, as well as a quick look around the conference. Read on.
Coach Ken Bone said the Cougars will meet today as a team and might get some shots up or look at some film, but they won't have a full-fledged practice after playing on Sunday. Such are the difficulties of the Pac-12's new scheduling format. … In today's newspaper we had our game story, and on the blog we had a postgame tale of the tape to go along with some additional quotes, as well as our pregame post. … Howie Stalwick had this story in the Kitsap Sun, and Todd Dybas has a story from the UW perspective. … Here's Percy Allen's game story in The Seattle Times, along with a column from Jerry Brewer. … Art Thiel attended the game and wrote this column. … WSU redshirt center Jordan Railey is featured in this cool Jim Allen story from yesterday about athletes and tattoos. Click through the photos to see a shot of Railey.
Around the Pac-12 … There was one other game yesterday, and it ended in predictable fashion with Stanford beating Utah, 84-66. … An Arizona guard is finding his rhythm after struggling through February. … Larry Scott wanted Pac-12 teams to give themselves a chance to pick up some quality nonconference wins this season.
Turns out it's a light Monday. That's all for now.
