Tuesday links: Pac-12 exhibition update

It shouldn’t surprise anyone if Washington State senior Brock Motum wins the Pac-12 scoring title for a second straight season.
However, if he doesn’t receive more help, then the Cougars will finish in the bottom half of the conference for the fifth straight year.
WSU lost 86-81 to the Cairns Taipans of the National Basketball League (NBL), which ends its exhibition Australian tour with a 2-3 record. The game might have also been a harbinger of the upcoming season for Motum and the Cougars.
He scored 41 points on 13-of-19 shooting from the field, 3 of 4 on three-pointers and 12 of 16 at the free throw line. Motum played 35 minutes and tallied seven rebounds.
It looks as if senior guard Mike Ladd has won the confidence of coach Ken Bone. He played a game-high 36 minutes and finished with 13 rebounds. Last season Ladd, who sat out the 2010-11 season after transferring from Fresno State, was slowed by a thumb injury. He started four of the five games in Australia.
Predictably, senior guard Reggie Moore was WSU’s second leading scorer Down Under.
TUESDAY AFTERNOON LINKS:
— Arizona coach Sean Miller flipped the starting lineup, but the result remained the same and the Wildcats finish their tour of Bahamas with another lopsided win. Despite the changes, Mark Lyons and Kevin Parrom – two of the stars in the first game – led the Wildcats to a 99-57 victory over the Bahamas All-Stars. Lyons had 19 points and Parrom 16.
— Colorado should have arrived in France today for a five-game, 10-day excursion.
Nice story from Jeff Goodman on USC coach Kevin O’Neill, but the most intriguing part for me was O’Neill saying he’s moving two hours out of Los Angeles and will commute four hours each day. That’s crazy.
