Cougs hope schedule yields

Getting ready to watch a pair of 8-3 women's basketball teams with combined 11-game winning streak ... right now it's just a sometimes rival in the west but next year it's going to be a WCC rivalry when Brigham Young joins Gonzaga in the West Coast Conference. ... When that happens it's likely to be the most important game. ... Back with the game story later.

Also for tomorrow, a little peek at the Pac-10, which opens league play next week. In the weekly notebook, Washington State coach June Daugherty hopes the growing pains of her young team pay off in the next couple months.

And congratulations to UConn for winning 89 straight games, a NCAA Division I basketball record.
