A few stories to pass your away today:
— There are only four Pac-10 teams still playing in any kind of tournament after Cal lost at Ohio State last night in the NIT. But despite another disappointing season for the Bears it is expected that Ben Braun will be back for another season as coach, according to Jon Wilner, who provides a good analysis of the situation in Berkeley.
— One of the four left is Arizona State which plays Florida tonight for a chance to get to the semi-finals of the NIT.
— The Corvallis Gazette-Times provides its wrapup of Oregon State’s season with the appropriate headline “Train wreck is over.”
— Here’s a good overview from the Oregonian of where Oregon goes from here, with lots of thoughts that the Ducks never really found an identity this season.
Ken Pomeroy rates the Pac-10 as the best conference in the country through games of Monday. He also rates UW 51st and says the Huskies played the No. 16 toughest schedule in the country both overall and out-of-conference.
Pomeory also picks North Carolina to beat WSU 71-69.
Bud Withers of our staff breaks down the WSU-North Carolina matchup.
— Here’s more on Valpo’s drubbing last night at the hands of Houston.
— Finally, I thought last night I’d dig up a Sweet 16 projection I wrote for the Times’ college basketball section last November to see how I did. I got nine right, and many are obvious lay-ups — UCLA, North Carolina, Memphis, etc. But I’m happy to take some credit for No. 16 on the list.
