Wednesday morning Pac-12 links

From Pullman -- Well, Deone Bucannon sure is making quite the impression. He's in Mobile, Ala., for the Senior Bowl and is meeting with NFL teams. The All-American safety from Washington State surprised scouts with his size when he showed up, but has still managed to turn heads with his athleticism.

All in all, not a bad week so far for the Coug, who many publications consider the best strong safety in the draft.

In men's basketball news, the rarest of occurrences will happen today: WSU will play in Pullman. We've got an advance on the game, and an update on DaVonte Lacy, who is taking steps toward his return. They'll take on an Oregon State team that is showing signs of life.
