About to board a plane home from Las Vegas to Seattle, and have some time to pass along a few links to read over lunch …

— First, a note that action yesterday did nothing to help Washington’s chances of receiving an NIT bid. With regular-season conference champions UC-Irvine and Utah Valley losing, the Big West and WAC will each send non-champions to the NCAA tournament — meaning UC-Irvine and Utah Valley will both receive automatic bids to the NIT. That won’t help teams like UW, whose chances were already iffy when the week began.

— Arizona kept rolling yesterday at the Pac-12 tournament, blasting Colorado, 63-43.

— UCLA will meet the Wildcats in the championship game after dominating Stanford in an 84-59 victory.

— Here are Joe Lunardi’s most recent NCAA tournament projections, with six Pac-12 teams included.

— A football link: Adam Jude takes a look at the ways UW’s program as already changed under new coach Chris Petersen.
