Huskies hoops links: UW in four-way tie for fifth in Pac-12

Washington (14-4, 3-3) practices in Utah and we’ll have an update on the Huskies later today.

For now, here’s some Pac-12-related links.

SATURDAY MORNING LINKS:

— No. 7 Arizona is going for a Bay Area sweep.

— Meanwhile, California is reeling having lost seven of its past eight games, including a 35-point defeat in its last outing.

— Colorado is riding a four-game losing streak. Next up: Washington State.

— UCLA has not beaten anyone outside of Los Angeles since Nov. 28.

— Oregon State’s Malcolm Duvivier is developing a knack for late-game heroics.

— The U.S. Basketball Writers Association released its midseason watch list for the Oscar Robertson Award and it includes two Pac-12 players (Utah’s Delon Wright and Arizona’s Stanley Johnson).

— Interesting story in the Los Angeles Times about Long Beach State coach Dan Monson who receives a significant percentage of the team’s nonconference “buy” games. According to the LA Times: “Long Beach State had five buy games this season from mid-November to late December — at Xavier, UCLA, 17th-ranked Texas, Syracuse and 10th-ranked Louisville. The 49ers lost all five games by an average of 16 points, and their overall nonconference record was 6-10.The games generated $385,000 in revenue for Long Beach State, of which the school kept $100,000 and the remaining $285,000 went to Monson, (LBSU athletic director Vic Cegles) said.”

— ICYMI, former Washington State star Klay Thompson went off Friday night. The Golden State sharpshooter set a NBA record scoring 37 points in the third quarter of the Warriors’ 126-101 win over Sacramento. He converted 13 of 13 shots, including 9 for 9 on three-pointers, in the third quarter. The previous record for points in a quarter was 33 held by Carmelo Anthony and George Gervin. Thompson finished with 52 points on 16-for-25 shooting, including 11 for 15 from 3-point range for Golden State (35-6), which won its 18th straight home game.
