Roundup: Dinwiddie's decision

Joel Broida/


Colorado guard Spencer Dinwiddie will declare his NBA intentions Thursday with a live press conference at 2 p.m. MT/1 p.m. PT. Will Dinwiddie take his talents to The Association, or will he come back to Boulder for his senior year?


UCLA gave us an update on the new football performance center, and boy the renderings for UCLA’s proposed new football facility are impressive. Take a look for yourself; Yahoo Sports is a fan, and so am I. The Bruins have received around $40 million for the new joint.


The Utah student government has voted to change the lyrics to the school’s fight song, deeming some of the words offensive to some of the student body. The change isn’t a sure thing yet, as now the vote will go to Utah president David Pershing for a final yay or nay.


John Crumpacker provides us with the spring “game” depth chart for Cal. The “game” is Saturday, but as Crumpacker notes, it really isn’t going to be a game (although there will be a live team scrimmage).


Things will be a little different in Eugene the following weekend because if health permits, Oregon is planning a full game format for the May 3 spring game. Three more practices to get through.

Arizona State

With a ninth season in Tempe on the horizon (something only three other head coaches have done), next season is an important one for ASU coach Herb Sendek. He loses a lot of guys as he tries to get the Forks to the dance in back-to-back years for the first time in more than three decades.


Gotta work in a D-League article where you can, especially because Kevin Parrom found a flow in Rio Grande Valley this year with the Vipers, chucking up three after three and providing solid energy off the bench (his team shot 45 three-pointers per contest; it was like watching a video game).

Oregon State

The Beavers blew a five-run lead to Sacramento State Monday night but got swift revenge with an 8-1 pounding of the Hornets Tuesday night. As such, No. 5 Oregon State baseball hopes to continue learning from the loss at Sacramento State.


Don’t you love to get unleashed with Gregg Bell? I know I do, so let’s read what he has to say about Chris Petersen’s championship culture taking hold.


Looking for a good live stream to watch on your computer Thursday afternoon? Then I suggest you check out Stanford taking on Pepperdine in the MPSF men’s volleyball semifinals in Provo, Utah at 4 p.m. PT.


The Pac-12 Tennis Championships are already underway, but USC men’s tennis hasn’t hit the courts in Ojai yet. Why is that? Because USC men’s tennis is back at one and has earned a bye, as The Ripsit Blog tells us. Other USC programs that currently top the nation are women’s golf and sand volleyball. Oh, just another spring in Troy.

Washington State

CougCenter’s Brian Anderson analyzes the production of Washington State’s skill positions under Mike Leach. Good stuff as always from CougCenter.
