Heading to Vegas


FROM PULLMAN — A 10:45 a.m. flight awaits yours truly, as it's time to matriculate to Las Vegas for the Pac-12 tournament. WSU coach Ken Bone and Washington coach Lorenzo Romar will be available to the media later tonight, and we'll have some notes then. For now, we have links. Read on.

Brock Motum added to his list of career achievements yesterday, as he was voted second-team all-conference by the Pac-12's coaches. Hard to understand how the league's second-leading scorer isn't considered among the league's 10 best players. WSU's record this season obviously had a pretty big impact there. … The S-R's Thomas Clouse updates his story about the alleged brawl in downtown Spokane on Saturday with the news that USC has suspended centers Dewayne Dedmon and James Blasczyk for violating a team rule. So the Trojans lose quite a bit of size as they begin Pac-12 tournament play on Wednesday. … Here's Romar's press conference from yesterday. He said Brock Motum is “on a mission.” … 

Around the Pac-12 … Cal guard Allen Crabbe discusses his Pac-12 Player of the Year award. … A productive Utah freshman was shut out of the Pac-12 awards. … Colorado's honorees discuss their reactions. … A rundown of Arizona's all-league honors. … Examining the state of UCLA's fan base after the Bruins won the Pac-12 title. … Oregon keeps sliding in the latest tournament projections. … Oregon State has a “good feeling” after beating Colorado, and the Beavers want to keep that going into Las Vegas this week.

That's all for now.
