FROM LAS VEGAS — Selection Sunday will mean something for the Washington Huskies again this season. But like last year, they’ll again be waiting for, at best, an NIT invite, after losing 67-61 to Utah in the first round of the Pac-12 tournament. Here are links.

— Here’s our game story, focusing on the uncertainty of UW’s postseason fate. Lorenzo Romar didn’t explicitly state that the Huskies are thinking NIT-or-bust, but reading between the lines, it doesn’t seem like the CBI is a consideration.

— Here are some additional notes from the game.

— And here are the game stories from The Seattle Times, Sportspress Northwest, the Salt Lake Tribune and the Deseret News.

In other tournament action Wednesday …

— Washington State couldn’t pull off two upsets in a row, as the Cougars fell to Stanford, 74-63, and finished the season with a 10-21 record. It might have been the final game of Ken Bone’s 5-year tenure at WSU.

Colorado held off an upset scare against 12th-seeded USC, beating the Trojans 59-56.

— Oregon won its eighth consecutive game, running past Oregon State, 88-74.

Thursday’s games …

ARIZONA vs. UTAH, 12 p.m.


UCLA vs. OREGON, 6 p.m.
