Here’s video highlights (above) from Washington’s 68-63 win over Washington State last night at Beasley Coliseum.

— Here’s game stories in the Spokesman-Review, Associated Press, News Tribune and

— Spokesman columnist John Blanchette takes shots at UW, WSU and the refs. On the Huskies, he writes:  “(They) showed a little siccum, too, when necessary. They’ll need more. This is not the team that has won either the conference regular-season or tournament titles in each of the last four seasons, and for as veteran as they are, they short on both efficiency and depth.”

— Here’s a compilation of post-game videos and quotes from WSU’s Ken Bone and Brock Motum.


— Next up for Washington is California (9-5, 1-1), which won 72-64 at USC. Considering what Desmond Simmons did against Motum, wonder if he can slow down Pac-12 leading scorer Allen Crabbe who had 27 points against the Trojans.

— USC (6-9, 1-1) blew a chance at doing something special on the first week of Pac-12 play. Instead the Trojans split home games against the Bay Area teams because it didn’t receive a significant contribution from post players on Saturday night.

— Stanford (9-6, 0-2) is at an early crossroads following a 68-60 defeat at UCLA. Cardinal coach Johnny Dawkins held a 56-minute post-game meeting with players after the loss. He told the San Jose Mercury News: ” “For us it was the right time based on how we’re playing to bring our guys in and have a good talk about what we’re capable of doing and how to go about doing it.”

Shabazz Muhammad scored 17 of his 23 points in the second half when UCLA pulled away to defeat Stanford 68-60, extending its winning streak to seven games. Jordan Adams added 12 points and Travis Wear had 11 for the Bruins (12-3, 2-0 Pac-12), who are on their longest run of consecutive wins since taking 10 in a row during the 2008-09 season.

— UCLA senior guard Larry Drew II leads the nation with an assist-to-turnover ratio of 5.57.

— No. 3 Arizona survived another close contest and did just enough to hang on to a 60-57 victory over Utah. Solomon Hill led the Wildcats (14-0, 2-0) with 19 points, Mark Lyons had 12 and four assists and Brandon Ashley scored 11 points.

— Say what you will about Utah, but the Utes play hard and they’re doing more with less talent than anyone else in the Pac-12. However, they came up short once again. After suffering a heartbreaking defeat Wednesday at Arizona State, the fell short 60-57 at Arizona. Jason Washburn  had 17 points and 11 rebounds and Jordan Loveridge finished with 17 points for the Utes (8-6, 0-2), who haven’t won a road or neutral-court conference game since joining the Pac-12 last season.

— Colorado coach Tad Boyle is eager to put the Buffaloes’ controversial defeat at Arizona in the past and avoid an 0-2 Pac-12 start. He had former CU football standout Chad Brown, who starred with the Seahawks, to talk to the team. The Buffs are 10-3, 0-1.

— Arizona State (12-2, 1-0) is one of the few teams in the Pac-12 with two 7-foot centers, Jordan Bachynski and Ruslan Pateev. The Sun Devils are tied for third in the nation in blocks per game at 7.6.

Big game Monday for UW signee Nigel Williams-Goss.
