Video: UW highlights over UCLA and links

Thanks to Patrick Blair for the highlights from Washington’s 71-69 victory over UCLA.
Let’s get to the links.
Steve Kelley writes: “The Pac-12 Conference season has started its second half, and another Washington basketball team is blooming like the first crocus peeking out from under the snow.”
— Awesome job by Dean Rutz who put together a photo gallery. Check out Shawn Kemp Jr.’s dunk.
— Here’s the game stories in the Everett Herald, the Associated Press, News Tribune and And here’s the post-game press conference with coach Lorenzo Romar, Terrence Ross, Darnell Gant and Abdul Gaddy.
Tony Wroten Jr. told the Everett Herald he’s unsure if he’ll play Saturday against USC.
— UCLA coach Ben Howland told the Orange County Register: “I thought that for 34 minutes we really played tough, really played smart. We made some really bad mistakes. No.1: costly fouls.”

— Arizona (15-8, 6-4) did Washington a favor and knocked off California 78-74. However, the biggest news from the game involved Jordin Mayes who may have suffered a season-ending foot injury and the scuffle between Cal senior guard Jorge Gutierrez and Arizona assistant Joe Pasternack, a former Cal assistant.
— The Golden Bears (17-6, 7-3) lost for the first time at Haas Pavilion and had their 14-game home losing streak snapped despite playing in front of a Gold-Out crowd of 9.690. Cal fell into a three-way second-place tie in the standings with Colorado and Oregon.
— It’s really getting kind of ridiculous the way teams have fallen down when they play at Colorado. Maybe it’s the altitude. Maybe it’s the Buffaloes (15-7, 7-3). In happened again last night. Oregon State became the latest victim. CU won 82-60 behind Andre Roberson’s 16 points and 15 rebounds.
— Oregon State (14-8, 4-6) began with a 1-3-1 zone to slow down high-scoring Colorado and perhaps preserve energy. However, it didn’t work. The Beavers trailed 46-31 at halftime. Jared Cunningham finished with just 12 points.
— Oregon bounced back from Sunday’s loss to Oregon State and captured its fourth Pac-12 road win following a 79-68 win at Utah. The Ducks (16-8, 7-3) received 20 points from Devoe Joseph and Carlos Emory had a perfect shooting night, making all four field goal attempts and all five free throws en route to 14 points.
— Utah (5-17, 2-8) has dropped seven of its last eight games. Despite the loss, the Utes played well. Chris Hines had 20 points, including four 3-pointers, Cedric Martin added 15 and Kareem Storey had 10 points and a career-high 11 assists.
— If Washington State beat USC 60-53, wonder what Washington will do the Trojans. Here’s video highlights from a WSU perspective. Brock Motum scored 26 points for WSU (12-10, 4-6).
Greg Allen came off the bench and tallied 17 points for USC (6-17, 1-9). The Trojans were down big, but used a 14-4 run midway through the second half to cut WSU lead to 49-45 with 6:42. USC never got any closer.
— Stanford guard told the Mercury News “We know we got to make a run at this thing starting now if we want to get into the tournament.” The Cardinal (16-6, 6-4) snapped a three-game losing streak and beat Arizona State 68-44. Bright scored 16 points and Chasson Randle added 14.
— Arizona State (7-15, 3-7) played its fifth straight game without leading scorer and rebounder Trent Lockett (ankle). The Sun Devils received a career-high 20 points from center Jordan Bachynski. They also managed just just four assists — tying ASU’s lowest mark in Herb Sendek’s six years as coach — and shot only 34 percent from the floor.
Bud Withers gazes into his Pac-12 crystal ball and spouts out a few predictions.
