Morning links: Third straight loss for UW

It might take Washington a little while to recover from Sunday’s 91-65 loss at Colorado. The 26-point drubbing was the worst loss this season.

Unfortunately for the Huskies, it’s a relatively quick turnaround this week before Wednesday’s 6 p.m. game against Stanford at Alaska Airlines Arena.

Here’s the UW-CU game stories in the Daily Camera, Associated Press, Everett Herald and GoHuskies.com.

And here’s the video highlights from the Pac-12 Networks.

MONDAY MORNING LINKS:

— In its second full game without Brandon Ashley, No. 2 Arizona trounced Oregon State 76-54 at McKale Center looked as if it discovered how it’s going to proceed without its sophomore star forward. The Wildcats shot 50 percent for the first time in six games, had a 40-12 advantage in the paint and 15 assists with eight turnovers. They also outrebounded the Beavers 39-24, including a 15-4 advantage on the offensive glass that led to 13 points. Aaron Gordon led Arizona with 17 points and fellow freshman Rondae Hollis-Jefferson provided 16. T.J. McConnell added 11 points, six rebounds and six assists for the Wildcats, who bounced back from their grinding victory over the Ducks with a terrific all-around effort to improve to 23-1 and 10-1 Pac-12.

— Oregon State senior guard Roberto Nelson, the nation’s 10th-leading scorer, was held to 10 points — 12 below his average — on 3-of-12 shooting. The rest of the Beavers did little to pick up the slack, shooting 8-of-24 in the second half and 39 percent overall. Angus Brandt led the Beavers (13-10, 5-6) with 14 points.

— Utah’s Brandon Taylor looks to have his groove back.
