The day after

I was beginning to start linking all the stories on Saturday’s Cougar-Husky game when I realized by friend Glenn Kasses had already done so on his blog at the Spokesman-Review while also adding some interesting thoughts from the WSU perspective.
So I’ll just link to his blog here and let you pick and choose what you might find interesting.
But I will also make a point to link our coverage here, as well.
Here’s our game story, our notebook with details on the injury to Spencer Hawes, and Steve Kelley’s column.
I’ll also throw in here what I will try to make a weekly feature from now on — Pac-10 rankings with some comments from the weekend’s play.
So here we go:
1, UCLA — Showed Arizona that there is a new perennial power in the Pac-10 and that Ben Howland is replacing Lute Olson as the preeminent coach in the conference.
2, Oregon — Aaron Brooks is making a serious run at being the conference play of the year. But the Huskies won’t have to face him Thursday due to his suspension for the Ryan Appleby incident last March.
3, Washington State — The Cougars look like a team that could make a deep March run. The return of Aron Baynes makes them that much tougher.
4, USC — The Trojans are likely to enter the top 25 for the first time since 2002 this week.
5, Arizona — Lute Olson’s first three-game conference losing streak since 1984 shows this team has some flaws, notably, a surprising lack of depth.
6, Stanford — The Lopez Twins are making Anthony Goods and Lawrence Hill that much better.
7, Cal — Bears are showing a lot more life without DeVon Hardin than anyone really expected. Ben Braun is doing a fine job adjusting.
8, Washington — Now becoming obvious it’s more than just a slow start for the Huskies and that this team has some serious issues. Every game is make-or-break from here on out.
9, Oregon State — Losing two at home this season makes Jay John’s seat that much hotter.
10, Arizona State — But still a tough game for everyone.
