I don't know who the player of the year in the Pac-12 is. Give it to the fans for having to endure all these nonsensical results. --@PacificTakes
- The Huskies escaped from Pullman with a victory despite shooting 4-for-17 from three and only getting two points from Terrence Ross. Ken Bone's squad "Coug'd it" down the stretch, and shot 6-for-20 from the charity stripe. Washington locked up a first-round bye in the Pac-12 tournament with the victory, while the Cougars are currently trying to hold down the No. 8 seed. Saint Mary's finally knocked Gonzaga off its throne of 11 straight WCC regular-season titles. The WCC Tournament in Vegas starts on Wednesday, Feb. 29th; view brackets here.
- Props to Kevin Durant for giving respect to the city of Seattle. Chris Daniels of King 5 news had the chance to talk Durant and former Sonic Brent Barry about the current situation in Seattle.
- ROOT Sports is not interested in airing the state basketball tournament championships this year. And that is super lame. Apparently, the cost of production is "too" high for ROOT Sports. Not all hope is lost though, fans will be able to watch the tournament games online at wiaanetwork.com. This means, if you're going to college out-of-state or do not live in Washington, you'll be able to watch the games.
