The Oregonian’s Mike Tokito writes Oregon State would be wise to re-commit to Craig Robinson or else run the risk of losing him to schools like DePaul the way Washington State lost Tony Bennett to Virginia.
Tokito writes: “On Thursday, after the Beavers got a dramatic victory over Arizona, a television reporter asked Robinson about the DePaul chatter. Robinson gave the only reasonable answer, saying, “I’m not going to comment on that.
But wouldn’t you have loved to hear Robinson say, “My only comment is that I’m at Oregon State for the long term, and I plan to be hear at least as long as Ralph Miller.”
EVENING LINKS:
Seth Davis at SI.com says Washington needs to finish no lower than second in the Pac-10 to earn a NCAA tournament berth. He also says Cal’s tough non-conference will help the Bears if they’re a bubble team.
Andy Glockner at SI.com projects two Pac-10 teams will make the tourney, UW and Cal. He also believes only four Pac-10 teams are in the mix for tournament berths. The others are ASU and WSU.
Ryan Fagan at the Sporting News paints a grim picture for the Pac-10 and sees just one tournament team from the conference.
— The Register-Guard reports history suggests Oregon won’t make major improvements from last season’s last-place conference finish.
— Arizona has a few extra days this week to prepare for Saturday’s game against Arizona State.
— It’s a little dated, but Jeff Goodman at Fox Sports wrote an interesting piece on Charles Garcia, the Seattle University star and former UW recruit.
