The morning after can’t feel good for coach Lorenzo Romar (above) and the Huskies after their 90-79 loss yesterday.
***Update 11:10 a.m.***
— USC has self-imposed sanctions on its men’s basketball program for NCAA rules violations stemming from an internal investigation related to O.J. Mayo. The Trojans will not participate in postseason tournaments this season, including the Pac-10 tourney.
— And here’s the story in the Los Angeles Times.
It was the first full day around the Pac-10 play on Saturday. Plenty of games. Plenty of links. Let’s get to it.
— Our game story focused on Oregon’s Malcolm Armstead, who may be one of the top guards in the guard-oriented Pac-10.
Steve Kelley writes: “Washington starters strolled onto the floor like they were too cool for the conference.”
— Here’s a photo recap of UW’s defeat.
— The Oregonian’s Paul Buker writes the Ducks captured their first sweep in Washington state since 2000.
Bob Clark at the Register-Guard offers this game story.
The Spokesman-Review takes a second look at Washington State’s 65-60 victory against Oregon State.
From the Beavers perspective, the game was decided when guard Calvin Haynes drove into the key, collided with WSU freshman Reggie Moore and Haynes was called for an offensive foul with 17.5 seconds left. Moore made one of two shots giving WSU a 3-point lead.
— No offense to Oregon, but the biggest news of the weekend may have been USC, which won its eighth straight game. The Trojans beat Arizona State 47-37.
— The Arizona’s Republics Doug Haller provides this recap of the Sun Devils loss.
— Arizona came out of Los Angeles with a split, winning 77-63 yesterday at UCLA. The Wildcats snapped a four-game losing streak at Pauley Pavilion.
— Facing an aggressive man-to-man, UCLA managed only 21 percent shooting, with its top three scorers — Malcolm Lee, Michael Roll and Nikola Dragovic — a combined one for 14 in the loss to Arizona.
California had no problems disposing Stanford 92-66.
