Washington evened its record to 3-3 after Tuesday’s 83-79 win over Montana.

Here’s the box score and photo gallery from Times photographer Lindsey Wasson.

And here’s the post-game interview with coach Lorenzo Romar as well as game stories in the Associated Press, News Tribune and


— No. 4 Arizona is all business and no sightseeing during its trip to New York. The Wildcats face Drexel today in the semifinals of the preseason NIT. They could face No. 6 Duke in the finals if both teams win today.

— Utah began fundraising for a new $24 million basketball-only facility. Groundbreaking is scheduled for the spring 2014 and it open in 2015. The 80,000 square-foot facility is expected to include two gymnasiums, a sports medicine center, film rooms, locker rooms and a strength, conditioning center and a 6,000-square-foot hall of fame. Here’s a photo gallery of the proposed design.

— The Utes have build a 5-0 record on a soft schedule. The competition picks up a little bit today when Utah hosts Ball State (2-2).

— We’ve hammered UCLA fans for their lack of support and low attendance figures. The Bruins average announced attendance is 5,673 in the 13,800-seat arena through the first five home games. Perhaps a reason for the low turnout are high ticket prices. According to, a secondary ticket broker, UCLA has the sixth highest-priced tickets in all of college basketball, with the median price $95.

— Without forward Richard Solomon (eye abrasion), California’s used a four-guard lineup that came up short against No. 8 Syracuse in the semifinals of the Maui Invitational. The Golden Bears’ 92-81 loss was their first defeat, which dropped them to 5-1. Justin Cobbs (18 points, eight assists, five rebounds and four steals) had a big game. Cal also received 17 points from freshman guard Jabari Bird and forward David Kravish added 15. The Golden Bears play Dayton today in a consolation game.

— Another impressive win for Oregon State, which rolled 101-81 over SIU Edwardsville. The Beavers are 3-0 with Devon Collier who was suspended from the season-opening loss. He tallied 20 points, seven rebounds and two blocks last night. Angus Brandt had 19 points, Roberto Nelson 17 and Victor Robbins 12.

Dwight Powell had 20 points, nine rebounds and six assists, but Stanford lost 88-67 to Pittsburgh in the Progressive Legends Classic title game in Brooklyn, New York. The Cardinal (5-2) fell behind 43-28 at halftime and never got any closer than 11 the rest of the way.
