Roundup: Arizona not dwelling on historic defensive effort

Arizona Athletics


Even though Arizona held Washington State to some historic McKale Center lows in last night's 60-25 win – nine field goals, 20 percent shooting and 25 points scored – the Wildcats are tacking it up as just a bad night for the Cougs.

Washington State

Washington State coach Ken Bone wasn't throwing chairs or losing his cool despite his Cougars' offensive woes against the 'Cats. In the end, it was one loss without his team's best scorer, DaVonte Lacy.


An emotional read from the Los Angeles Times' Bill Plaschke, who writes of Jim Mora's continued support to the family of Bruins walk-on Nick Pasquale, who died early in the season after being hit by a car.

Arizona State

Ball movement had been Arizona State's strength, but that was lost on the Sun Devils in a home loss to the Washington Huskies.


Balanced scoring paced the Huskies against the Sun Devils in win that raised a few eyebrows around the Pac-12. 

Oregon State

Beavs receiver Brandin Cooks declared for the NFL draft, but that just means speedy freshman Victor Bolden is on deck for coach Mike Riley.


Ducks junior cornerback Terrance Mitchell surprised a lot of people by announcing his decision to leave for the NFL, and Oregon awaits a decision for fellow cornerback Ifo Ekpre-Olomu.


Was the BCS flawed? Probably, says reporter Chris Dufresne, but it produced a number of great memories. His list of 16 includes big moments for the Pac-12, but it's not hard to guess that the No. 1 memory involves USC. Sorry Trojan fans.


Utah missed a major chance to drop a top-10 Oregon hoops team by turning the ball over in the final seconds with the game tied. But don't laugh at them anymore. The other Coach K has the Utes ahead of the curve.


Could Stanford football's offense be even more exciting next season? With so much returning, quite possibly.


On the hardwood, Justin Cobbs led the Golden Bears to a 69-62 win against rival Stanford. 


Colorado is coming off an ugly win against Oregon State, but the Buffs now have a chance to do what Utah couldn't – beat a very good Oregon squad.
