— Let’s start with our game story from UW’s 92-64 win over Washington State, Jerry Brewer’s column and a photo gallery from photographer Cliff Despeaux.
— The Spokesman-Review covered the hoops Apple Cup from plenty of angles. Here’s a good place to start for links.
— Here’s another reason why I marvel at Arizona State coach Herb Sendek and why he’s my Pac-10 Coach of the Year: He benched is senior starting point guard Derek Glasser and the Sun Devils beat Stanford 88-70. A move like that take is risky, especially when you consider ASU’s other point guard Jamelle McMillan is out with a foot injury. Glasser had made 54 straight starts and is a fixture at ASU. Still, Sendek wanted to send a message to his team in a big way after consecutive losses.
— The view of the ASU-Stanford game is grim from the Bay Area. The San Francisco Chronicle reports the 18-point Cardinal defeat wasn’t that close.
— Oregon is reaping huge dividends from its two sophomores from a Florida junior college (Jeremy Jacob and Malcolm Armstead), who led the Ducks to a 67-57 victory over USC.
— In Los Angeles, the Trojans are blaming the defeat on third-year student manager Stan Holt who picked up a technical foul late in the game that sparked a decisive Oregon run. Trojans coach Kevin O’Neill initially said he’d fired Holt immediately after the game and later decided to reserve judgment on Holt’s future.
Dwight Lewis told the LA Times: “I feel like it did change momentum of the game.”
— UCLA’s 62-52 victory at Oregon State allowed the Bruins to salvage a split on its Oregon road trip, which keeps them in the Pac-10 title hunt.
— The Beavers are turning into a one-man team led by Calvin Haynes. OSU coach Craig Robinson told the Oregonian: “We can’t have just a steady diet of Calvin Haynes. Somebody else has to step up.”
Vittorio Tafur at the Chronicle writes “Cal tries to make history today by sweeping the Arizona schools on the road, something it has never done in the 31 years since Arizona and Arizona State joined the Pac-10 conference. The Bears (14-6, 6-2 Pac-10) could also put some distance between themselves and second-place Arizona (11-9, 5-3) with a win in Tucson today.”
— Folks in Arizona aren’t thinking about history, they’re more concerned about first-place in the Pac-10. Considering the loss of NBA talent, few would have believed the Wildcats would be in position to lead the conference midway through the Pac-10 season.
— And finally, Sandy Ringer caught up with Garfield High junior Tony Wroten, Jr. who is back on the court rehabbing a surgically-repaired knee under the guidance of legendary Joyce Walker. Wroten lists UW among the teams recruiting him.
