I'd like to say hey to all of our new readers that are coming from Yoni Cohen's site, College Basketball. Yoni runs a great show over there, so go check it out.

Arizona 90, Oregon State 59

---Channing Frye and Salim Stoudamire each had 17 points as the Arizona Wildcats advance to the Pac-10 Tournament championship game tomorrow afternoon, defeating Oregon State 90-59.

The Beavers were only down 40-35 at halftime. But the Wildcats went on a 12-0 run to start the second half, killing any chance of Oregon State making a comeback.

Arizona shot 59 percent, while Oregon State shot 39 percent. It was the first time in 3 games that the Beavers didn't outshoot their opponent.

Oregon State is likely headed to the NIT. A first-round matchup against Portland State, perhaps?

Washington 66, Stanford 63

---The Huskies aren't in the NCAA Tournament yet. But an old saying that's used quite often in the Big Dance certainly fits the bill for their 66-63 victory over Stanford tonight.

Survive and advance

Indeed, that's what the Huskies were able to do against a scrappy Stanford ballclub. Nate Robinson, who scored 29 points against Arizona State Thursday night, was held to 14 points and 5 rebounds against the Cardinal. Bobby Jones scored 12 of his 14 points in the second half.

As for Stanford, there is no doubt in my mind that they're going to be in the NCAA Tournament. If they aren't, somebody should give the tournament committee a drug test.

It's Washington and Arizona in the Pac-10 Tournament championship game.

Both teams each own a victory over one another, so tomorrow is the rubber match. If the first two games between the Huskies and Wildcats are any indication, we're in for a barnburner tomorrow afternoon.

Gametime is 3 p.m. Pacific only on CBS!
