Morning links: Home court has been kind to the Huskies

No matter how bad this Washington men's basketball team might look on the road -- and boy, have they looked bad -- there's always a chance they can beat whoever they're playing at home. Stanford found that out last night, losing 64-60 to the Huskies at Hec Edmundson Pavilion.

From that game, we have links. And something about a proposed football rule change.

--- Here's our game story from last night, focusing on the late-game contributions of Desmond Simmons.

--- And here are some additional quotes from Lorenzo Romar.

--- The game story from The Seattle Times.

--- And the UW Daily.

--- And Sportspress Northwest.

--- And the San Jose Mercury News.

--- Some ... uh ... interesting rule-change proposals had a bunch of college football coaches up in arms yesterday. Well, only one of them had coaches all that upset: specifically, the proposal that offenses should have to wait until 10 seconds run off the 40-second play-clock before snapping the ball.

--- There was one other Pac-12 basketball game last night, as California outlasted Washington State for an 80-76 overtime victory in Pullman. Tacoma native DaVonte Lacy scored 39 points for WSU.

Two Pac-12 basketball games on Thursday ...

--- Colorado visits UCLA in a matchup of two teams battling for second place in the Pac-12 (6 p.m., ESPN2). The Buffaloes are trying to play better on the road.

--- Across town, Utah visits USC (7:30 p.m., Pac-12 Networks). The Trojans aren't very good.
