Huskies-Trojans almost ready for prime time

Between the signing day excitement it's almost easy to forget that the Huskies have a basketball game tonight against USC. And a pretty interesting one, too, based largely on the Seattle debut of Trojans' star freshman O.J. Mayo.

Another reason for the lack of excitement about this game might be the difficult TV situation: the game is on some cable systems on Fox Sports Channel and Prime Ticket, but not on straight FSN until a delayed broadcast at 9:30.

That almost changed today as the Fox broadcast crew had a difficult time getting into Pullman today, and tentative plans were being explored to sub the USC-UW game for the UCLA-WSU game.

However, the broadcast truck made it in through an alternate route, and the Bruins-Cougs will be shown as scheduled.

Meanwhile, we'll have our usual gameday blogging schedule, starting with any pregame news... and there could be some if coach Lorenzo Romar decides to try to give a new lineup a chance to break the ongoing three-game losing streak.

After that, I'll pop in with a halftime report, and then again after the game with notes and quotes. (Which you might want to avoid if you plan to watch that delayed broadcast without knowing the result.)
