Well the Staples Center is beginning to fill up for the second game, but not all that much. There's about 3,500 fans here and we're right behind the Washington State bench and the Cougars have been dominating in the first 20 minutes. Aron Baynes is dominating his freshman counterparts Josh Crittle and Michael Dunigan, scoring 14 points with five rebounds at the break as the Cougars are shooting 61 percent from the field (14-for-23) and have attempted just one 3-pointer, a testament to their inside domination.
Tajuan Porter leads Oregon with 11 points but the rest of the Ducks are shooting 4-for-16 from the field for 11 points. Oregon coach Ernie Kent can't wait for 2010.
In the house: Former NBA guard Gus Williams, former Arizona standout Miles Simon, Clippers guard Fred Jones (an Oregon alum), KJR radio's Dave "Softy" Mahler.
