Ending the week with hoops links


FROM PULLMAN -- It was back to basketball on Thursday night, though the small crowd that showed up at Beasley Coliseum wasn't exactly treated to a strong showing. Regardless, we recap the night's happenings after the jump, so read on.


We have our game story from WSU's 52-41 win over Jackson State last night in today's newspaper. On the blog, we had a post with our tale of the tape and a post with some postgame video courtesy of WSU Athletics. The newspaper also ran this editorial about the review of the football program today, as well (though as a point of clarification, the email sent to Moos on Nov. 1 wasn't anonymous -- the name was just redacted in the records released by the school). ... Howie Stalwick wrote about the game for the Kitsap Sun. ... Here's the AP story. ... Ted Miller says Mike Leach needs to look in the mirror. ... Braulio Perez reports that Reggie Moore will play basketball at Western Washington next season. ... Another report that receivers coach Eric Morris is headed to Texas Tech to join Kliff Kingsbury's staff.

In Pac-12 football news ... Is Mike Riley really interviewing at Wisconsin? There are varying reports. ... Washington, and the rest of the Pac-12, battled penalty issues this season. ... Arizona's running back turns into something resembling the Hulk on game days. ... Arizona State will welcome a transfer from Auburn. ... An Oregon State cornerback is on the brink of history. ... Utah will play games against Fresno State in the future. The Utes' top defender could be the NFL's top draft choice. ... Colorado alumni just want what's best for the program.

In Pac-12 basketball news ... Washington coasted to an 87-74 win over Seattle University last night. ... California needs its point guard to not try to do too much. ... Arizona will face a Florida team that relies on turnovers to fuel its offense. ... Colorado was satisfied with its ugly win two days ago.

That's all for now.
