Morning run: No TV for WSU, can OSU stop the slide?

Thurs., Jan. 19

  • California at Washington, 5:30 p.m. Root Northwest
  • USC at Oregon, 5:30 p.m. Comcast Sports Northewst
  • Arizona State at Colorado, 6:30 p.m. Root Rocky Mtn.
  • Arizona at Utah, 6:30 p.m. Fox Sports Arizona
  • Stanford at Washington State, 7 p.m.
  • UCLA at Oregon State, 7:30 p.m. FSN

Obviously, the first game is the best one. And we'll get to that in a separate blog post. As for the rest, I guess the UCLA-OSU game is interesting. I'd be inclined to DVR the Stanford-WSU game because I always wonder how teams handle Pullman, particularly under tough travel conditions. But that game isn't on TV.  No it's not cause school is cancelled. It's cause of the brilliant TV deal won't have either game in Pullman this weekend televised. Apparently ROOT is protesting the Palouse.

  • Speaking of the Stanford-Coug game, Christian Caple of the Spokeman filed this story from the other day on WSU's poor rebounding, which we saw against UW. He also has this game preview about the Cougs finally playing a home game. He also got a scouting report from Stanford beat writer Elliott Almond of the Bay Area News Group.

This game is going to be uglier than Jiggy Watkins' waistline. The Utah point guard was booted from the team this week. The Utes probably shouldn't have a point guard built like me, unless that point guard is Khalid El-Amin. Someone joked that Watkins and Cameron Dollar have the same build these days.

Will the altitude be a factor in Utah and Colorado for the Wildcats? Bruce Pascoe does a good job of looking at it. Even getting some experts to talk about it.
