Some notes and links of possible interest before tonight's 6:30 p.m. Arizona-Oregon State game at McKale Center:

--

A reminder for those outside Southern Arizona: Tonight's game will not be carried live on Fox Sports Arizona, as most schedules indicate, but instead can be found on Fox College Sports Central for those with expanded service.

The game will be carried live locally on KWBA and on delay at 11 p.m. on Fox Sports Arizona.

ASU will host Oregon at 8:30 MST in the national Fox Sports Net Pac-12 game tonight.

Unfortunately -- and I'm guessing Larry Scott can't wait to change this -- the league's most potentially meaningful game tonight, Colorado at California, is only on regional TV: It's at 9 p.m. MT on Comcast SportsNet California

Also, there's Utah at Stanford, 8 p.m., on Comcast SportsNet Bay Area.

But if you believe that the Pac-12 is http://www.denverpost.com/colleges/ci_19724896?source=rss" target= "_blank">really just a "JV league," then you may also want to consider watching the http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/budwithers/2017215895_withers12.html?prmid=head_main" target="_blank">Gonzaga-St. Mary's game tonight at 9 on ESPN2 instead...
