Wednesday brings WSU links


FROM PULLMAN -- A slower-than-usual week begins to kick into gear for Washington State, which practiced Tuesday after doing some lighter work on Monday. We have some links to get you through your Wednesday morning. Read on.


On the blog yesterday, we had our recap of Ken Bone's meeting with the media. ... Howie Stalwick writes about Brock Motum and his frustrating senior season. ... If you want to watch Washington coach Lorenzo Romar's press conference from yesterday, here it is. ... Conference coaches chime in on who should win Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year.

Around the Pac-12 ... There are three games tonight, and for once, WSU isn't playing in any of them. ... Arizona State hopes to prove its NCAA Tournament credentials this week in Los Angeles. ... Arizona's 7-foot freshman is starting to assert himself and is becoming a force. USC will face Solomon Hill -- the one who got away -- again on Wednesday (6:30 p.m., Pac-12  Networks). ... UCLA had problems dealing with ASU's big man the first time they met. The Bruins and Sun Devils get together again tonight (8:30 p.m., Pac-12 Networks). ... The other game tonight: Colorado tries to keep its road momentum going with a game at Stanford (8 p.m., ESPN2). ... San Jose is one of the NCAA's "second and third round" host sites (known to everyone as the "first and second rounds"), but there won't likely be any local teams there.

All for now.
