Cloud Nine

#15 Arizona State beat Mississippi Valley State by 16.

The Cougs just beat them by 51.

They opened the game on a 28-0 run.

I bring this up, in part, because I got my Sports Illustrated college basketball preview issue today. The Sun Devils are on the cover. Scavenger hunt for you - try to find any mention of the WSU team or a Cougar player inside. It's like trying to find Waldo in there.

They also have USC Freshman Demar DeRozan (a 5-star recruit by listed under "freshmen who aren't getting all the props they deserve". Excuse me, but I can't think of a talented freshman getting less "props" than Klay Thompson.

They also have Washington placed in their field of 64, but the Cougars conveniently not present.

But guess what? The Huskies just lost to Portland (80-74).

What a great night.

I'll have more on the basketball game later, including my thoughts on a rather surprising redshirt decision by Tony Bennett.
