When: 8. Where: Friel Court, Pullman, Wash. On the air: TV: ESPNU; Radio: 710 Records: USC 10-19, 1-15 in Pac-12; Washington State 9-19, 2-14. Update: It's been a long season, but the Trojans have something to play for against the Cougars. A USC victory would put the Trojans in a tie for 11th place in the conference and could help them avoid a last-place seeding in next week's Pac-12 Conference tournament. USC has lost 10 games in a row, including a 78-63 defeat by Oregon at the Galen Center on Saturday.

To say that Trey Dickerson is good at adjusting to his surroundings might be an understatement. He came to Los Angeles from Queens, N.Y., as a sophomore and was a starting guard at Van Nuys Montclair Prep when the school dropped its sports program. Then he went to L.A. Price, where he was a standout on the 2011-12 team. Colleges wanted him but he wasn't an NCAA qualifier, so he went to prep school, God's Academy in Dallas, Texas. He committed to Murray State last year and was taking summer classes, then reversed course and enrolled at a junior college, Williston State College in North Dakota, where he has become one of the top junior college guards in the country, with scholarship offers from Washington, Washington State, Iowa, Nebraska, Arkansas and St. Louis.

Tidal erosion caused by a February 1970 winter storm ate away a bank of soil on Washington's Olympic Peninsula, revealing parts of five Native American longhouses. The longhouses near Lake Ozette had been buried suddenly by a mudslide sometime around 1560, preserving their contents in such remarkable condition that the site is often referred to as the American Pompeii. Archaeologist Richard Daugherty of Washington State University had previously conducted some minor excavations at the Ozette site, but the revelation of the longhouses provided an unprecedented opportunity to learn more about the culture of the Makah civilization.

Some things were settled by halftime Sunday. UCLA was not going to repeat as Pac-12 champion. Arizona clinched the conference regular-season title while the Bruins were sorting out issues in the locker room. Some things were unsettling by halftime. BOX SCORE: UCLA 74, Oregon State 69 Steve Alford, UCLA's always dapper-looking coach, ditched his jacket. That he didn't consider replacing it with a straitjacket was to his credit. In the first half the Bruins showed why they've lagged so far behind Arizona in the standings.

The state of California issued an advisory on measles last week. Though only about a dozen cases have been reported so far, many more people have been exposed to the virus. In the Bay Area, thousands were warned to watch for signs of the disease after a man who'd been infected on a trip to Asia rode a BART train. In Los Angeles, far more people than necessary were exposed to measles because doctors failed to report two patients' cases immediately. One had traveled to Asia; the other had been exposed to a recently infected traveler.
