Pac-10 looking to bounce back today

The Pac-10 is 3-5 in its past eight games, but things should turn around today. The conference is 19-6 overall.
Today’s games (times are local)
USC at New Mexico State, 2:30 p.m.
Northern Colorado at Arizona, 3 p.m.
Arkansas-Pine Bluff at Stanford, 5 p.m.
Texas Southern at Oregon State, 7 p.m.
My picks: New Mexico State, Arizona, Stanford and OSU
Record: 16-7
SUNDAY AFTERNOON LINKS:
— Caught up with Tony Bennett on Friday and we talked about his past success at Washington State and his challenges at Virginia.
— Former Husky guard Adrian Oliver led San Jose State to a 75-72 win over Oregon, which knocked the Ducks out of the ranks of the unbeaten. Oliver finished with 19 points and seven rebounds.
— Free throws missed and made in the final 11 second cost USC a 64-63 defeat last night to Bradley. Trojans forward Nikola Vucevic could have sealed the game with a pair of foul shots at the end, but he missed both attempts. Braves guard Sam Maniscalco was fouled on a three-pointer with a second remaining and he made all three for the win.
— Speaking of buzzer beaters, Arizona State senior Ty Abbott drained a three-pointer with 2.2 seconds to lift the Sun Devils to a 69-66 victory over UAB last night.
— Don’t count out Cal just yet. This was supposed to be a rebuilding year for the Golden Bears, but the defending Pac-10 champions will bounce back sooner than many believe. If last night’s 89-64 win against New Mexico is any indication, Cal will be a force again this season. The Lobos are a pretty good team that beat Arizona State by 14 in its previous game.
