Thursday morning links: Pac-12 race tightens

A few links from Washington’s 65-57 win over USC on Wednesday night.

Here’s the game stories in the Associated Press, News Tribune and GoHuskies.com. And here’s an AP photo gallery from Elaine Thompson.

Aside from the Huskies’ win, there were two big stories/games in the Pac-12 last night.

AROUND THE PAC-12:

— Here’s a look at the conference standings and the Pac-12 Tournament bracket.

— Up next for Washington is No. 23 UCLA (23-8, 12-5), which had its 19-game win streak in Pullman snapped last night. The Bruins lost 73-61 at Washington State.

— WSU coach Ken Bone told the Spokesman Review: “It’s a huge confidence-builder that we can continue to do the right things and pull out a victory by doing that.”

— The Cougars snapped a nine-game losing streak and improved to 12-14 and 3-14.

— Stanford upset California 83-70 at Haas Pavilion. Last year the Cardinal prevented the Golden Bears from winning the Pac-12 regular-season title with a win in the regular-season finale and it looks as if Cal will be denied again.

— The Cardinal’s blowout win included a fight between the teams that resulted in six technical fouls and the ejection of two players and three assistant coaches.

— No. 19 Oregon (23-6, 12-4) can secure at least a share of its first conference title since 2002 with a win tonight over Colorado.

— The Ducks have lost three consecutive one-point games to the Buffaloes.

— With a win Colorado (19-9, 9-7) has a chance to get the No. 4 seed, which carries a bye into the Pac-12 quarterfinals.

Somebody has to win when Oregon State (13-16, 3-13) meets Utah (11-17, 3-13) tonight. It’s possible Washington will play one of these teams next week in the first round of the Pac-12 tourney.

— Arizona seniors Solomon Hill and Kevin Parrom want to finish their college basketball careers on a high note.

Doug Haller at the Arizona Republic gives his Pac-12 awards and believes Cal’s Allen Crabbe is the player of the year.
