Monday morning Pac-12 links

Things didn't go well for the Cougars in Tempe as WSU lost not only the game, but again lost DaVonte Lacy, who made his first start in over a week but was re-injured midway through the first half. Even more problematic, the Cougars scored just 72 points over the weekend for an average of 36 points a game. Needless to say, that won't cut it in Pac-12 play.

However, the women's basketball team again held court, completing a sweep of the Arizona schools with a two-point victory over the Wildcats to improve to 2-0 in conference. 

Elsewhere in Pac-12 men's hoops, Colorado handed Oregon its first loss of the season and UCLA resoundingly won the first matchup between the two new coaches in Los Angeles.

There was some football news on Sunday as UCLA's Brett Hundley announced that he's sticking around another season, while Oregon's De'Anthony Thomas is off to the NFL.
