I'm headed to KeyArena later to help cover the NCAA tournament games there this weekend, which will be played on Friday and Sunday. But the tourney begins in earnest today, and three of the four Pac-12 teams in the field will be in action. Links:
--- In NCAA tourney action: No. 2 Arizona plays first against No. 15 Texas Southern in Portland at 11:10 a.m. on TNT.
--- Arizona State won its NIT opener at Connecticut, 68-61. ASU and Stanford, which defeated UC Davis on Tuesday, each move on to the second round.
--- Playing without senior guard Askia Booker, Colorado won its CBI opener, 87-78, over Gardner-Webb. The Buffaloes visit Seattle University in the second round. SU beat Pepperdine at home last night.
