Tuesday morning links

A few links to pass along.
TUESDAY MORNING LINKS:
— The expanding Big Ten will not affect the Pac-12, commissioner Larry Scott told the Los Angeles Times.
— Not sure if it’s possible, but Arizona coach Sean Miller will try and keep all three of his freshman big men happy with minutes and starting roles. Freshman Brandon Ashley came off the bench Monday and finished with 20 points and 10 rebounds – both game highs – to lead the Wildcats to a 94-72 win over at home against Long Beach State. Kevin Parrom was perfect on five 3-point attempts, scoring 15 points and Solomon Hill was perfect on 11 free throws while also scoring 15 points. Nick Johnson had 12 points, five assists and three steals for Arizona (3-0).
— No. 11 UCLA lost to unranked Georgetown 78-70 in a game that wasn’t really as close as the score may indicate. Much ballyhooed freshman Shabazz Muhammad made his collegeg debut and finished with 15 points. However, the main concern for Bruins coach Ben Howland is finding roles for a talented group. Not sure how much longer Howland can keep freshman Jordan Adams on the bench. He scored 22, which is his fourth game with at least 20 points.
— Washington State lost starting guard DaVonte Lacy then the Cougars got trounced 78-41 by No. 12 Kansas. Lacy, who suffered a knee injury after five minutes, is listed as questionable for today’s game against Texas A&M.
— Oregon (4-0) hasn’t been tested and Monday night was no different as the Ducks overpowered Jackson State for a 67-45 win at Matthew Knight Arena. Center Tony Woods scored a career-high 17 points, E.J. Singler added 11 points and Dominic Artis had 10. It’s Oregon’s best start since 2007-08, the last year it went to the NCAA tournament.
— USC (2-1) suffered its first set back and didn’t put up much of a fight in its 94-64 defeat to Illinois.
— The early signing period ends tomorrow and it doesn’t appear as if Washington will add anymore recruits to a 2013 class that includes Nigel Williams-Goss and Darin Johnson. The regular signing period is April 17 to May 15, 2013.
