UCLA Coach Steve Lavin is getting all sorts of strokes these days. The latest come from guard Billy Knight, whose clutch play Saturday helped the Bruins avoid getting upset by Arizona State. "I really couldn't tell from Lavin that he had his job on the line because his composure was real smooth," Knight said. "The only time I knew his job was on the line was by reading all the newspapers and listening to TV. I don't know how he did it.

The familiar symmetry of the Pacific 10 Conference is changing, and that calls for a road trip. By joining the Pac-10 in 2011, the universities of Utah and Colorado will make it the Pac-12. With that, the rhythms of USC and UCLA fans traveling to the Arizona schools, the Bay Area schools, the Oregons and the Washingtons will be transformed. (OK, so not so many fans go to Pullman, Wash., which Washington State calls home.) Call Colorado and Utah the new Mountain time schools.
