Here’s our advance of today’s Washington-California game, which begins Week 2 of Pac-12 play.

— Nice preview of the game from the Mercury News.

— The Golden Bears are hoping to get more production from role players like Jeff Powers.

— Here’s the game notes on and GoHuskies.com.

AROUND THE PAC:12:

— We’ll start the links with a few Pac-12 notebooks from Tuesday’s teleconference call that touches on topics such as Colorado coach Tad Boyle’s thoughts on instant replay, Washington State coach Ken Bone’s odd late-game strategy versus Washington and an unusual exchange between Arizona coach Sean Miller and a Pac-12 official.

— First here’s a notebook from Bud Withers. And here’s a few more from the News Tribune, Daily Camera and the Salt Lake Tribune.

— Washington plays at Stanford on Saturday. The Cardinal have gotten off to an 0-2 Pac-12 start largely because they’ve been unable to shoot straight from the perimeter. Here’s a line from the San Francisco Chronicle: “Its 40.3 shooting percentage (down from 44.5 last season) and its 29.3 mark on three-pointers (down from 37.9) is the worst in the Pac-12.”

— Arizona is No. 4 in the country, but the Wildcats aren’t satisfied.

— Here’s video of Miler’s press conference on Tuesday. Miller said he’s not going to change his rotation, which has left Angelo Chol on the bench.

Two streaks clash Thursday in Eugene. Oregon is riding a 16-game home winning streak while Arizona is 14-0. Something has gotta give.

— Oregon State coach Craig Robinson said the Beavers are struggling with leadership and are captain Angus Brandt, who suffered a season-ending injury.

— OSU forward Devon Collier is thriving in a sixth man role.

— Here’s video and a transcription of Bone’s press conference on Tuesday.

— In his latest projections, ESPN’s Joe Lunardi has four Pac-12 teams in the NCAA tournament. Arizona has a No. 1 seed in the west, Colorado has a seven seed in the midwest, UCLA is eight in the south and Oregon is 10th in the west.
