From Tempe -- The WSU women defended home court to open Pac-12 play with a win over No. 24/25 Arizona State. It was the second win over a ranked win for the Cougars (7-6, 1-0 Pac-12), who also beat No. 10 Nebraska earlier this season. It wasn't the only upset in Pac-12 women's hoops, as USC knocked off No. 12 Colorado. 

On the men's side, Washington will get its turn against No. 1 Arizona tomorrow. The Huskies will have to face Aaron Gordon, who could have been a teammate of theirs. Utah and Oregon State are still winless in conference play, but one of them won't be after they face off tomorrow.

In Pac-12 football news, a number of players are declaring their intentions to leave early for the NFL draft. These include USC's Marquise Lee, Cal's Khairi Fortt, Terrance Mitchell of Oregon, Brandon Cooks of Oregon State.
