Jeff Withey became tougher and put together a monster night for Kansas. (Note the somewhat ironic headline in this Journal-World link about a player who left Arizona in 2008 before he played a game for the Wildcats.)

Anthony Gimino updates Withey and the rest of UA's transfers.

Utah's Chris Hines has become the Utes' most important player, according to the Salt Lake Tribune.

Somewhat like Arizona, Oregon is trying to find a way to be as successful at home as on the road.

The Ducks will have to take on a pair of NBA prospects in Terrence Ross and Tony Wroten Jr.

While Ross says he is trying early, there's a definite trend toward "Terrence Time" late in Washington's games.

Cal can't afford to lose at the Galen Center tonight.

Byron Wesley is taking advantage of his opportunities at USC.
