Washington coach Lorenzo Romar was asked Friday if the Huskies had to play a "Superman" game to win today.

Sort of.

"You've gotta play well," Romar said. "A team like Arizona will capitalize on every mistakes you make. When we played UConn, they make you pay for it. We play some other teams, we make mistakes and they don’t make a run. Arizona is going to make us pay for it.

"I wouldn’t say Superman as much as we have to be super efficient. We have to be mistake free mentally and on the floor."

The game will be televised on Pac-12 Networks at noon, with JB Long and Don MacLean.


Some advance coverage of today's game:

-- The Seattle Times has an interesting read on Aaron Gordon and others who have gotten away from the Huskies' recruiting grasp, some perspective on the Pac-12's opening night, and a scouting report (complete with remarks from some guy in Tucson).

-- The Tacoma News-Tribune looks at Washington's challenge.

-- We have a main advance package with a scouting report and notes, a sidebar on C.J. Wilcox, and a photo gallery of top Pac-12 players.


With the highs expected to hit around 70 here this weekend, it's probably a good time for Sean Miller to check in with recruits who are considering schools in the East and Midwest.


UA has scheduled an announcement after the game about more donations that are rolling in to help pay for McKale Center's $30 million initial phase of renovations.


Oregon State will play at Utah in the second game of today's Pac-12 Networks doubleheader (2 p.m.). Dana Altman found that playing at the Huntsman Center is not going to be easy for anyone this season.

Eric Moreland says he missed the Beavers, and their defense missed him.


Colorado is trying to figure out how to deal with zone defenses.
