Washington has an extra day to prepare for California

Washington has a longer-than-normal five day stay in the Bay Area and will complete 7 p.m. Sunday with a nationally televised 7 p.m. game at California.
Huskies coach Lorenzo Romar has playfully lamented the visiting team in the Sunday game probably has an awful winning percentage. No one has looked into that just yet, but Washington hopes to change that perception after losing 58-56 last night to Stanford.
Cal received an amazing performance from freshman guard Allen Crabbe, who scored a career-high 30 points in the Golden Bears’ 88-81 overtime win against Washington State.
In their previous encounter, Washington beat the defending Pac-10 regular-season champion California in the final of the conference tournament.
The Huskies are practicing at Haas Pavilion this afternoon. Romar said it will be a light workout. He worried about players losing focus with the extra day in the Bay Area.
FRIDAY MORNING LINKS:
— The San Francisco Chronicle described last night’s defeat as the biggest win in the three-year tenure of Stanford coach Johnny Dawkins.
— The Stanford Daily caught up with junior forward Josh Owens, who dominated the Huskies inside the paint.
— Good night for Oregon, which unveiled its new Matt Arena and knocked off USC 68-62.
— Here’s a lesson for USC, you never want to be the first opponent when a team opens a spanking new arena that’s considered the jewel of the conference. It’s not as if the Trojans had any say in the scheduling, but still they would have rather played the Ducks on Saturday.
— Freshman center Josh Smith came up big in the final seconds of UCLA’s 62-57 victory at Oregon State.
— Here’s more on Smith and his Pac-10 reprimand for criticizing the officials. It seems the penalty has some teeth after all. Apparently the former Kentwood High star has been told that if he bashes the refs again publicly, he’ll be suspended for a game.
— Same story for the Oregon State, which has a three-game losing streak. They fall behind in a big way. Make a furious comeback. And in the, fall short. It happened last week at Washington State, Washington and again last night.
