Saturday links in Pac-12 hoops

Let’s get the day started with a few links.

AROUND THE PAC-12:

Nice story in the Oregonian on Washington backup guard Andrew Andrews.

— Washington State (11-12, 2-8) is looking to snap a three-game losing streak 7 p.m. tonight at UCLA.

— If UCLA legend Bill Walton were running the Bruins athletic program, coach Ben Howland wouldn’t have a job.

— The fallout from Thursday’s UCLA’s win has focused on Shabazz Muhammad’s reaction after Larry Drew II’s buzzer-beating game-winner.

— No. 19 Oregon (18-5, 7-3) lost its hold on first place in the Pac-12 for the first time this season. The Ducks are reeling. They’re riding a three-game losing streak and point guard Dominic Artis (foot) still isn’t ready to return.

Ford Mullen, the last surviving member of the Oregon’s 1938-39 national championship basketball team called the Tall Firs, is celebrating his 96th birthday today.

— Arizona State (18-5, 7-3) starts 7-2 center Jordan Bachynski, but the Sun Devils have the luxury of bringing another 7-footer off the bench in Ruslan Pateev.

— Arizona (20-2, 18-2) is alone in first place in the Pac-12 standings.

— In his latest NCAA tournament projections, ESPN bracket guru Joe Lunardi has the Wildcats as a No. 1 seed in the West region.

— Colorado (15-7, 5-5) is happy after its 48-47 win Thursday at Oregon, but the Buffaloes are concerned the offense labored as much as it did.
