Only three other Pac-12 games today with the Arizona-UCLA game probably being the best of the three. But with how bad the Bruins are this season, it certainly has lost some of its luster.
Mathematically, the Wildcats could get a share of the title. But I don't see it happening.
Before we get to the games. This is a few days old, but here's some video of Pat Knight, the new head coach at Lamar, ripping his players. It's interesting at first and then get downright uncomfortable. But it's clear, he doesn't care for the seniors he inherited.
- Little used big man Alex Jacobson will suit for his final game at Arizona. None of the players that came with him in the 2007 recruiting class are still around. Fellow senior Brendan Lavender will likely start today, but it won't be a courtesy start as a senior. Kyle Fogg is still trying to prove people wrong.
- UCLA needs a win to have a shot at a first-round bye in the Pac-12 tournament. Josh Smith might miss the game with a tweaked back. ESPN LA's Peter Yoon writes that the game between the two traditional powers still has meaning and importance in a different way.
Wow, this game isn't exactly must-see. As much as I love basketball, I couldn't imagine myself watching this game. I think I'd rather watch back to back episodes of one the Real Housewives of Wherever before I would watch this game.
- Here's the only preview I could find from the three LA area newspapers.
- Doug Haller writes about the three guards that are sitting out this year for ASU but should be big contributors next season.
- Utah almost beat Stanford in Palo Alto. Now, the Utes will try and get a win in their final home game of the season.
