No two ways to cut it, Washington got hammered at California. Still, it’s difficult to discern following the 82-56 beatdown if the Huskies are as bad ad they played Wednesday or if the Golden Bears are as good as the outcome suggests. Whatever case, UW has a few days to figure it out before Saturday’s game at Stanford.
THURSDAY MORNING LINKS:
— After a slow start, Stanford crushed Washington State 80-48. Josh Huestis and Anthony Brown paced the Cardinal (11-5, 2-2) with 15 points each. Huestis had three dunks, but Dwight Powell may have had the jam of the night.
— Here’s the postgame interview with WSU coach Ken Bone.
— Good chemistry is one of the reasons No. 1 Arizona is on top of the college basketball world.
— Arizona State coach Herb Sendek stormed out of practice this week. Wonder if that bodes well for the Sun Devils before tonight’s big game at rival Arizona.
— Utah coach Larry Krystkowiak is trying to coax a few more points from an offense that tallied 46 in its last outing.
