Utah Athletics

Utah

At his press conference Tuesday, Utah gymnastics coach Greg Marsden said now is the right time to retire. Also check out the Salt Lake Trib’s Gordon Monson’s piece on Marsden retiring. Marsden won 10 national championships in 40 years as head honcho.

Arizona State

Arizona State baseball faces Arizona Wednesday night (7 p.m. PT, Pac-12 Networks in Tucson), with the Sun Devils needing one more win to clinch the Territorial Cup Series baseball point. Thanks to Jeff Metcalfe for this link.

Arizona

As the Wildcats try to make a postseason push, Arizona baseball coach Andy Lopez is focused on wins and not his team’s RPI. The Wildcats were just left out of the tourney in 2013 despite rocking a 34-21 record (they are 24-13 so far this year).

UCLA

UCLA has moved into a tie for first with Oregon after two days at the Pac-12 Women’s Golf Championships. Bronte Law and Erynne Lee paced the Bruins, combining for 11 birdies.

Stanford

Former Stanford running back Kelsey Young is transferring to Boise State, Broncos head coach Bryan Harsin announced Tuesday. Young rushed for 331 yards in 2014. Also, Stanford pitcher Chris Castellanos threw seven innings of no-hit ball to help Stanford beat Cal 4-0 Tuesday night. In this link, he talks with our JT Snow and Guy Haberman about his outing.

Colorado

With the golf tourney going on in Boulder, I forgot to mention that Colorado basketball landed transfer Derrick White, who played three years at Division II University of Colorado-Colorado Springs. He will have to sit out next year and has one year of eligibility remaining.

Oregon State

While college basketball studs are making the decision to either leave school or stay for another go-round, Gary Payton II is returning to Oregon State to improve his game and hopefully make the NCAA tournament. Connor Letourneau on the link.

Washington

Listen to Dave “Softy” Mahler’s radio interview with Washington basketball coach Lorenzo Romar from earlier in the week. Thanks to Christian Caple for the transcription of Romar’s comments.

Oregon

Pete Martini of the Statesman Journal writes that Oregon football’s true freshmen on defense have been solid so far in the spring. Ugo Amadi and Canton Kaumatule are a couple of names to keep in mind.

California

Cal women’s lacrosse added five-year-old Jett Fox to the roster as an honorary member. Jett had brain surgery at the age of four to remove a tumor.

USC

Chantel Jennings features blind long snapper Jake Olson, who will be attending USC. Check Monday’s roundup to read Gary Klein’s feature on Olson; in it, he says Olson "would join the [football] program as a walk-on". The Jennings link includes a video from ESPN’s College GameDay that was produced a couple of years ago.

Washington State

Jacob Thorpe notes that Washington State’s offensive line should be a strength for the team in 2015.
