Rest of game times set

The times for the rest of Washington’s games have been set, along with the TV situation, and it’s pretty much as we projected it to be last week — the UW-UCLA game will be on CBS at 11 a.m. on March 3 with the UW-USC game on March 1 not selected:
Here is the official release from UW:
Washington’s final regular-season men’s basketball game against UCLA has been selected by CBS Sports to be televised live at 11 a.m. on Saturday, March 3, the Pac-10 Conference announced Monday. The Huskies host the first-place and fourth-ranked Bruins at Bank of America Arena.
Washington’s preceding home game, against USC on Thursday, March 1, was not selected for television and the game time has been set for 7 p.m.
The Pac-10 did not announce the game times and television schedule for the final week of the regular season until today so its broadcast partners could provide the best possible matchups.
The other Pac-10 game that will be televised on March 3 is the Arizona at Stanford contest that airs on ABC at 12:30 p.m.
On Thursday, March 1, FSN will televise the UCLA at Washington State game at 7:30 p.m.
Three of Washington’s four remaining games will be televised, including both games on this week’s road trip. The Huskies visit Oregon State, Thursday, Feb. 22 for a 6 p.m. game that airs on FSN Northwest.
On Saturday, Feb. 24, the Huskies invade McArthur Court in Eugene to meet 23rd-ranked Oregon. The game will be televised at 7:30 p.m. on FSN.
Washington (16-10) is in seventh place in the Pac-10 standings with a 6-8 record.

MORE COMMENT — The big news in this is that the WSU-USC game on March 3 was not picked up by either ABC or CBS. Many had expected last week that it would be on one or the other, with the UW-UCLA game on the other. Instead, ABC opted for Arizona-Stanford, seemingly a curious choice considering the Cougars could be playing for the Pac-10 title. Maybe the network thinks that the intrigue of Arizona’s possible situation — the Wildcats may be on the bubble for an at-large spot — will make for better TV.
