Recapping UW’s season finale with links

PROGRAMMING ALERT: Live chat at 1 p.m.
So much to digest, dissect and analyze. Where do we begin? Let’s start with a few links before we spend the next eight months trying to figure out what happened this season.
We’ll begin with our game story Washington’s 68-67 overtime defeat in the NIT semifinals last night.
— Here’s a photo gallery that captures some of the physicality of the game.
Bud Withers looks back over past NIT champions and how they fared the next season.
— Here’s the game stories in the Associated Press, News Tribune, Minneapolis Star Tribune and Pioneer Press.
— Here’s the postgame comments from coach Lorenzo Romar, Darnell Gant and Terrence Ross on the podium. The NIT mistook Ross for former Washington State star Klay Thompson. Not sure how that could happen, but it did.
— And here’s the postgame comments from Minnesota coach Tubby Smith, Andre Hollins and Rodney Williams.
— When the NIT began two weeks ago with four Pac-12 teams, who would have imagined Stanford advancing to the title game?
— Cardinal coach Johnny Dawkins told the Mercury News: “For our kids to have already experienced this atmosphere, there is an advantage. We are not looking up in the rafters. We have already done that. That’s helped us for our kids to be comfortable. The rest is their effort and their heart and going out and competing.”
— Massachusetts was the crowd favorite and it had a huge cheering section, but Stanford kept the fans quiet for much of the game.
— Here’s the postgame comments from Dawkins, Josh Owens and Anthony Brown.
— Washington State has a chance to win a CBI championship tonight.
— No one truly knows what Oregon State junior Jared Cunningham will do. Some say he’ll simply test the NBA draft waters, while others believe he’s leaving the Beavers.
— Really nice story on Anthony Bennett, who is considering Washington, Oregon, Kentucky, Florida and UNLV. He plays tonight in the McDonald’s All-American game.
