It’s time for Washington fans to say goodbye to C.J. Wilcox, the fifth-year senior who ranks second on the school‘s all-time scoring list.

Senior Perris Blackwell and walk-on Connor Smith, who both played just one year at UW, will also play their final game Saturday when Washington host USC at 1:30 p.m. in the regular-season finale.

Otherwise, there’s very little intrigue in the game because win or lose it has very little impact on next week’s Pac-12 Tournament.

SATURDAY MORNING LINKS:

— Here’s a feature in the UW Daily about Wilcox, Blackwell and Smith.

— In case you missed it, Hall of Famer Bill Walton got a little choked up during the UW-UCLA broadcast while telling the emotional story of the his friendship with Smith.

— Utah is seeking its 10th conference win and a fourth-place finish in the league.

— Arizona State is hoping to halt a four-game road losing streak when the Sun Devils play at Oregon State.

— Since beating UCLA, Oregon State is 2-6 in the past eight games, which has ruined a once promising season. The Beavers are locked into the Pac-12 Tournament’s No. 10 seed.
