WSU unveils new basketball unis

COUGARS

FROM PULLMAN -- We start today's links with an item we didn't get to last night: the unveiling of new uniforms for the men's basketball team. They have words on them. Read on.

...

The uniforms aren't a heck of a lot different, until you take a look at the back. Yes, that is the WSU fight song. An interesting touch. You can check out WSU's photo gallery of the new jerseys here.

Also of note: DaVonte Lacy has switched to No. 25.

WSU writes about the new uniforms: "This season the team will be wearing Nike Hyperelite Uniforms, which are made from a thinner and lighter material than previous uniforms. The laser-cut perforations increase ventilation and Dri-FIT fabric helps wick sweat away so every player is equipped to stay cool, dry, comfortable, and move better."

--- Our story in today's newspaper focuses on the significance of WSU's recent (if you can call them that) victories over USC. 

--- Here are some notes from practice last night.

--- ESPN.com writes that WSU wants to be more than just respectable.

--- USC might be getting its best pass rusher back this weekend.

--- A rather optimistic evaluation of how USC's defense matches up with WSU's offense.

--- Arizona is relying on its "SWAT" team to get some third-down stops.

--- The story of how a UCLA player fought back from an illness that could have killed him.

--- California's running back was cleared to play this week against Portland State.

--- Getting to the bottom of the Stanford-San Jose State rivalry, and why it's going away.

--- Colorado has found a nice fit at nickel back.

--- A Utah defender has been given the go-ahead to play from the NCAA.

--- Expect Oregon to go for it on fourth down a whole bunch. Just like always.

--- Oregon State missed some rushing opportunities against Eastern Washington.

Time to get on an airplane.
