"The Trojans will be trying to stop Washington running back Chris Polk, who could have been a Trojan. As Klein wrote earlier this week:“Polk running back made a verbal commitment to USC while playing at Redlands East Valley High, but he changed his mind and signed instead with the Huskies in 2008."

"The general consensus? Pretty darn even overall, moreso than I might have thought before looking at them all. One caveat — USC’s game with Stanford went three overtimes, the Cardinal scoring 22 points in those three periods and piling up a few other numbers (though USC also had three offensive possessions, as well)."

"“I just haven’t been checking the ball down, because I didn’t feel I’ve been needing to. But now we are playing against good teams and they are covering the deep guys,” Price said. “So I’ve just got to get used to checking the ball down when things are not there.”"

"The two men feed off each other. Doubt and criticism drive their motivation, as they look to erase the word “canʼt” from the basketball dictionary. There is an unspoken connection that runs deeper than the human eye can see. More than just love for a common game.

"“Seattle Pacific was very methodical in their approach,” Romar said. “Georgia State, they want to push it more and get up and down the court like we do.”He added that the focus this game on defense is “nailing” transition defense. Georgia State shot 9 for 25 from the 3-point line in its exhibition game. Romar hopes to keep it that way on Saturday."

"The point guard with the uncanny ability to calmly direct his teammates and eliminate everyone’s mistakes is a better overall player. And that’s saying something. When he got hurt in January, he was leading the Pac-10 in assist-to-turnover ratio (3:1) and shooting 41 percent from 3-point range."
