FROM SALT LAKE CITY -- There isn't much to report on the WSU front today (unless you're talking about Wichita State, but you're not). So what follows is a small dose of Pac-12 links. They aren't happy ones, especially if you're a Ben Howland fan. Read on.
Around the Pac-12 ... UCLA's NCAA tournament "run" was more like a walk. Or a crawl. Really, the Bruins didn't leave the front porch in their 83-63 loss to No. 11 seed Minnesota, and now Ben Howland might be on his way out. But you've heard that before. ... Colorado didn't fare much better, falling behind big against Illinois before losing 57-49. The Buffaloes aren't sure if they'll have Andre Roberson next season. ... There are three more Pac-12 teams in action today. There's Oregon, which takes on No. 4 seed Saint Louis with a trip to the Sweet 16 on the line (4:10 p.m., TBS). ... And then there's California, another 12 seed, taking on No. 4 Syracuse. That game will be played in San Jose, where fans are teaming up to support both Pac-12 schools still playing there. ... Here in Salt Lake, Arizona has a matchup against No. 14 Harvard, which has the Wildcats' attention after upsetting New Mexico. ... Arizona State's season is over after an NIT loss to Baylor.
That's all for now.
