Sunday morning Pac-12 links


From Pullman -- The WSU-UW rivalry in women's hoops continues to be a one-sided affair with the dominant school predictably winning every game as much a certainty as the sunset or the tide's endless back and forth. Yes, the Washington State women tacked another win onto The Streak, which now stands at two games. The WSU athletics site has Bobby Alworth's game story from the Cougars' win in Seattle.

With the win, the women are 4-0 in conference play for the first time in school history. They're also 2-0 against the Huskies this season, who the team previously hadn't beaten since 1995. Tia Presley led the Cougars with 29 points. Before the season coach June Daughtery pronounced that WSU would make the postseason this year, and the team -- which also has a pair of wins over top-25 opponents -- seems to be doing everything it can to reward her faith.

The men will take on Utah at 4 p.m. today. Here is our advance for that game.

  • They have nothing to do with Pac-12 sports, but I'm going to link both Vince Grippi and John Blanchette's columns today because they're really good and you should read them. Some say I may be exercising too much power. Others, not enough.
  • Grippi says that Edgar Martinez should be in the Hall of Fame, and I agree. I also think Barry Bonds should be, and here's why.
  • In men's basketball Oregon State couldn't overcome the red-hot Cal Golden Bears.
  • Tomorrow Colorado will have its hands full against the Huskies.
  • Both Stanford  and Oregon have struggled out the gate. That makes tomorrow's game extra important.
  • USC is the next challenge in Arizona's pursuit of perfection.
  • The Ben Howland days are well behind us, with teams now worrying about how to stop UCLA's transition offense.
