Sunday links: UCLA’s return to prominence

SAM_0117-470x360Plenty of links on the final regular-season games in the Pac-12.

Let’s start with Washington’s 61-54 defeat to No. 23 UCLA and a photo gallery from Times photographer Dean Rutz that features a whole lot of Desmond Simmons.

Chris Foster at the Los Angeles Times did a nice job describing the celebratory scene after the game. Apparently, the Bruins borrowed the Huskies’ 2011-12 Pac-12 championship banner for a photo opp (right) in the lower tunnels at Alaska Airlines Arena.

Here’s the game stories in the Orange County Register, Associated Press, News Tribune and GoHuskies.com. TNT columnist Dave Boling offers this story while the AP put together a collection of photos.

AROUND THE PAC-12:

— Next up for Washington: Washington State thumped USC 76-51 and rides a two-game winning streak into its first-round Pac-12 Tournament game against the Huskies.

— Here’s the official website for the Pac-12 tourney.

— No. 19 Oregon lost 72-62 at Utah and blew a chance to secure a share of the conference title.

— Just when it seemed as if the Utes had given up on the season, they rattle off two straight wins including their first victory over a ranked team since 2009.

— No. 18 Arizona, the preseason Pac-12 favorite, finished in a three-way tie for second after a 73-58 win over cross-state rival Arizona State.

— The Sun Devils ride a four-game losing streak into next week’s Pac-12 tourney.

— When you hold Senior Day celebrations after the game, it’s an uncomfortable occasion for everyone if the home team loses. Exhibit A: Colorado. The Buffaloes lost 64-58 to Oregon State and coach Tad Boyle apologized to the sold out crowd at Coors Events Center before passing the microphone to the seniors.

— OSU’s win is another case of March Madness when a team that’s seemingly going nowhere rises up and knocks off a team that will likely play in the NCAA tourney. The Beavers played their best game of the season after they were blown out days earlier.
