The latest news and analysis on Husky men's hoops.

Pac-10 tournament lineup set

Washington State’s hard-fought win over USC finalized the seeding for the Pac-10 Tournament — and defined the path the Huskies will have to travel.
UW will play Arizona State while Cal will face Oregon State in the first round Wednesday night.
The Cougars clinched the No. 2 seed with their win over USC, so if the Huskies beat ASU, they will face WSU in the second round Thursday.
Other Thursday games are Oregon and Arizona in a match of the four-five seeds, the Cal-OSU winner against UCLA (No.1) and USC (No. 3) vs. Stanford (No. 6).
The WSU-UW/ASU winner would then face the USC-Stanford winner in the semifinals Saturday.
Here are a few other notes on UW’s win today.
—- The Huskies have won five of the last seven against UCLA dating to the 2004 Pac-10 Tournament.
— Spencer Hawes set a career high with 15 rebounds.
“I was just more active on the glass, just going after more of them,” said Hawes, who had 12 on two other occasions but otherwise hadn’t hit double figures this year. “Before the game, that was one of the keys because that’s one of our strengths and we had to exploit that and I said ‘you know what? No more messing around. It’s time to go out and grab some.”’
— Dentmon had just two turnovers against the Bruins after having zero against USC Thursday. “He made progress this weekend,” Romar said. “He just made a concerted effort to really try to run our team.”
— Both Hawes and Jon Brockman had double-doubles. The only other time that happened this year was the win against LSU on Dec. 20.
— UCLA had 20 points at halftime, a low for a Husky opponent this season
— Arron Afflalo seemed to indicate he thought Darren Collison took a few too many shots afterward. “He has to do the best he can to not get caught in his own percentages and make sure everyone else has it going because that’s the point guard’s duty,” he said.
— UCLA reserve big man Alfred Aboya sat out with a knee injury suffered at WSU Thursday. His bench replacements, James Keefe and Ryan Wright, had no rebounds in 14 minutes.
