Here is the latest Washington, Oregon and Alaska sports news from The Associated Press


SEATTLE (AP) – Lauren Jackson scored a season-high 23 points to lead the Seattle Storm past the Tulsa Shock 101-74 last night. Jackson found a rhythm, something she’s been missing since playing her first game of the season with the Storm on Aug. 23, in the first quarter when she scored seven points. That was more than her total in two of the three games since her return.

RENTON, Wash. (AP) – James Carpenter is happy to be back practicing. The Seahawks guard has been cleared to return to practice and was back at work this week as he gets re-acclimated to playing football once again after a devastating knee injury in practice ended his rookie season. Carpenter was injured during a relatively benign blocking drill during a practice in mid-November.

SEATTLE (AP) – Keith Price is often his own worst critic. It’s part of the humble nature that’s quickly endeared the Huskies quarterback to so many fans. He’ll need to be at his best if Washington is to have any shot at pulling an upset tomorrow against No. 3 LSU. But if his past performances on big stages are any indication, the Huskies might just get a dynamic night from Price.

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) – LSU starting left tackle Chris Faulk was injured in practice Wednesday and will miss Saturday’s game against the Washington Huskies. Coach Les Miles didn’t describe the injury Wednesday and said he didn’t know how bad it is. Miles says coaches won’t decide immediately who will replace Faulk in the lineup.
