Two games into the five-game Pac-10 schedule, and a pair of fascinating results ... both with some implications for the Huskies and Cougars.
In the first game, Southern California beat Stanford. That means that Washington State will be playing for Pac-10 tournament seeding when they tip at 4:30 against the Huskies. A WSU win makes the Cougs the No. 3 seed, but they fall to No. 4 with a loss.
Then UCLA came from behind again, this time against Cal. That means that Washington will certainly finish ahead of the Golden Bears and no lower than eighth in the league ... even is they lose today. (That would make Cal their opening opponent in the Pac-10 tournament Wednesday.) With a win they would almost certainly finish seventh, which would mean a first-round Pac-10 game against currently winless Oregon State.
