AROUND THE PAC-10:
— Here’s our game story from last night depicting UW’s near comeback.
— The Everett Herald noted: “On a day when all three of this state’s top men’s basketball programs got knocked down to size — it’s the first time UW, Washington State and Gonzaga have lost on the same day since Feb. 8, 2003 — the Huskies’ defeat might have been the most devastating.”
— And here’s how the game looked from a Los Angeles perspective.
— UCLA went to Washington State and left a winner just as it has in the previous 16 years. The Bruins have a 17-year winning streak in Pullman.
— The Cougars are simply falling apart. They’ve lost six of their last seven games and they weren’t competitive in the 71-51 defeat to UCLA.
— Not sure if it’s accurate to describe Oregon State’s 80-64 win over California as an upset because the Beavers have the beaten league-leading Bears three out of the last four games.
— The San Francisco Chronicle writes: “Cal point guard Jerome Randle, who is 5-foot-9, continued to have trouble against OSU’s 6-5 guard Seth Tarver and traps at the top of the zone, finishing with six points on 2-for-9 shooting (0-for-5 from three-point range). In the two games this season, Randle is 6-for-22 from the field (0-for-11 on threes) for a total of 20 points.”
— Should have seen this coming. Stanford finally broke through and won its first game on the road, handing Oregon a 72-65 defeat in Eugene, Ore. The normally two-dimensional Cardinal received 14 points from role players Jack Trotter and Drew Shiller added 12 while Landry Fields (game-high 21) and Jeremy Green (18) continued to shine.
— The Oregonian writes the Ducks “showed few signs of life until it had dug itself a 17-point deficit.”
— After last Saturday’s stunning upset at home to Oregon State, Arizona coach Sean Miller ran the Wildcats through a 6 a.m. practice on Monday.
He told the Daily Star: I just wanted to make sure the guys understood there’s a responsibility we have as a team. You go through 70 practices and 24 games, and you constantly talk about how important defense is and how important it is to be tough-minded and play hard and give great effort and live with the consequences.”
