WSU begins quick turnaround


FROM SEATTLE -- We're hitting the road shortly for the trek back to Pullman. That's a trip the WSU basketball team already made last night -- though it did it on an airplane and a bus -- and it's a good thing, because the Cougars have to play another basketball game on Wednesday. We have links from the basketball game it played yesterday, as well as a quick look around the conference. Read on.


Coach Ken Bone said the Cougars will meet today as a team and might get some shots up or look at some film, but they won't have a full-fledged practice after playing on Sunday. Such are the difficulties of the Pac-12's new scheduling format. ... In today's newspaper we had our game story, and on the blog we had a postgame tale of the tape to go along with some additional quotes, as well as our pregame post. ... Howie Stalwick had this story in the Kitsap Sun, and Todd Dybas has a story from the UW perspective. ... Here's Percy Allen's game story in The Seattle Times, along with a column from Jerry Brewer. ... Art Thiel attended the game and wrote this column. ... WSU redshirt center Jordan Railey is featured in this cool Jim Allen story from yesterday about athletes and tattoos. Click through the photos to see a shot of Railey.

Around the Pac-12 ... There was one other game yesterday, and it ended in predictable fashion with Stanford beating Utah, 84-66. ... An Arizona guard is finding his rhythm after struggling through February. ... Larry Scott wanted Pac-12 teams to give themselves a chance to pick up some quality nonconference wins this season.

Turns out it's a light Monday. That's all for now.
