Morning links: Colorado aiming for a title

The biggest game in the Pac-12 tonight is in Boulder, Colo. where Colorado looks to preserve its bid for a conference championship with a win against Stanford.
Buffaloes coach Tad Boyle told the Daily Camera: “This year the focus is just on trying to get a piece of the conference championship, which would be pretty special.”
Colorado is 1 1/2 games behind California and idle Washington. The Buffaloes face Cal on Sunday.
Stanford coach Johnny Dawkins wants the Cardinal to focus on the game and not Colorado’s high altitude, which has left opposing teams gasping.
CU is the only unbeaten team at home in conference play (7-0).
— The Huskies have the night off and they’re preparing for Saturday’s trip to Washington State. Today we took a look at UW’s back court and spoke to former Arizona star Miles Simon who compared Washington to his 1997 team that won the national title.
Here’s our poll question which ask how this year’s quartet of Tony Wroten Jr., Terrence Ross, C.J. Wilcox and Abdul Gaddy stacks up with the the 2004-05 squad that featured Brandon Roy, Nate Robinson, Will Conroy and Tre Simmons.

Which UW guard quartet was the best?


THURSDAY MORNING LINKS:
— The Everett Herald writes about Wroten and his knack for grabbing offensive rebounds.
— GoHuskies.com writes about Darnell Gant, a multi-faceted student-athlete who mixes basketball, music and theater.
— Coach Lorenzo Romar (below) talked to KJR-AM yesterday morning. The station also had interviews with junior guard Abdul Gaddy and Washington State forward Brock Motum.
— After the loss of Richard Solomon (academic ineligible) freshman forward David Kravish has stepped up nicely.
— Cal presents a tough matchup for Utah.
— UCLA guard Tyler Lamb wanted to make the Pac-12 All-Defensive team this season, which isn’t likely to happen. The Bruins also had designs on the conference title and that’s not happening either.
— Arizona State coach Herb Sendek received the dreaded vote of confidence from the school’s administration. ASU president President Michael Crow told the Arizona Republic: “Herb’s a good coach and I have confidence that he’s going to find the right combination. He’s struggling right now. Even he would tell you that.”
— Arizona, Cal, Colorado and USC were the only Pac-12 schools to vote in favor of a proposal that would override the NCAA’s decision to offer athletes multi-year scholarships. The override failed.
