The pair also took time to break down the proposed dismissal of Arizona assistant basketball coach Mark Phelps and what his ouster means for Sean Miller's future in Tucson.
The problem: That urgency isn't always there, which contributed to head-scratching home losses to Princeton and Washington State, as well as.
Defensively, Washington did what Washington does. Five Huskies reached double figures in scoring, paced by David Crisp's game-high 17 points. For the Sun Devils, they need the defense to show up, because it clearly didn't against the Cougars.

Nine players were a single shot back on five under, including South Africa's Branden Grace, who played the Pebble Beach course. The 38-year-old is making his third start at the Pebble Beach Pro Am when he would usually still be on a break in Australia.
Washington State scored the first seven points of the game as Arizona missed its first seven shots. He went 8 for 9 from the floor, helping the Sun Devils outscore Washington 42-20 in the paint.

Washington (19-5, 10-1) clicked on all cylinders in a win against Arizona on Thursday. Ellerby are multi-dimensional players who can operate inside and be effective with their shot-making and passing. Timmins had a couple of nice baskets early, but he wasn't much of a defensive presence.
Noah Dickerson, who sprained his ankle against UCLA, was questionable to play. Franks' 3-pointer gave the Cougars their biggest lead of the half, 28-14, with 4:12 to play. Randolph had two points on 1 of 6 shooting from the field. He was often forced to pass out of double teams on the perimeter and committed four of UW's 17 turnovers. Since the start of Pac-12 play in January, they've done it twice. However, he was unable to get into a flow because of a few erratic substitutions. The Wildcats went just 32 percent from the field.

Picking against this Huskies team seems foolish after what they've done in conference play.
Washington hasn't lost consecutive games this season, but those early defeats were in the nonconference season and followed by very winnable games against mid-majors. He scored a combined 68 points on the Cougars two-game road trip to Arizona.
The Cougars snapped a 13-game losing streak to Arizona and achieved their first conference road sweep since the 2008-09 season.
