Tuesday morning Pac-12 links

From Pullman -- Bright lights. March Madness. Final Fours. One Shining Moment. It's all so close for the Washington State women's basketball team, which is officially a bubble team according to Charlie Creme's Bracketology. Creme still doesn't have the Cougars making the dance, but they're clearly a team on the rise.What can they do to assure themselves a spot? Well, more weeks like this past one from Tia Presley wouldn't be amiss. Presley, who played high school ball in Spokane, was named the Pac-12 Women's Player of the Week for putting up 32 points in both of WSU's wins.

More links after the jump.


The baseball team's road trip finished with a thud however. After falling just one inning short of winning the rubber match against the nation's best team the Cougars lost to UC Riverside on Monday ... The Pac-12 may have seen attendance drop this past season, but no school saw a bigger increase of butts in seats than Washington ... Cal's Justin Cobbs is one of four Pac-12 players named Bob Cousy Award finalists ... Arizona's Sean Miller says he'll rotate his players more liberally.

Bonus Link: On what would be the late Rick Majerus' 66th birthday, his St. Louis team has reached the AP Top-10 for the first time in decades. So take some time to read S.L. Price's definitive profile of the coach.
