Aaron Brooks, who started the game as the Pac-10’s leading scorer at 20.8 points, equalled his season-low with five points on 1-of-8 shooting. Maarty Leunen added nine points and Malik Hairston had eight for the Ducks, who had only one player score in double figures for the first time this season. Derrick Low and Kyle Weaver each scored 12 points and the host Cougars used smothering defense to reach 20 wins for the first time since the 1993-94 season. Ivory Clark scored 11 points and Robbie Cowgill 10 as Washington State (20-4, 9-3) remained second in the conference. Stanford (15-7, 7-4) shot just 28 percent in the game, had 12 shots blocked and suffered 15 turnovers in posting a season-low score. The Cardinal, who came in averaging 72 points, were led by Brook Lopez’s 13 points. Stanford beat Washington State 71-68 in overtime earlier this season, and had won three straight against the Cougars. But the Cardinal went on a prolonged drought, scoring just 8 points over the final 8:40 of the first half and the first 10 minutes of the second half. After leading 22-20 at halftime, Washington State jumped to a 30-21 lead as Stanford missed its first seven shots of the second half and did not make a field goal in the first 7 minutes. Anthony Goods’ 3-pointer with 9:17 left cut Washington State’s lead to 33-27, and was only the Cardinal’s second basket in 12 shots in the half. Goods, who scored 30 in the first game, was held to 11 points. No. 24 Arizona 72, Oregon State 66 Marcus Williams scored 23 points in another big performance against host Oregon State. Ivan Radenovic had 19 points, making 13 of 16 free throws, and Jordan Hill added 12 points and 11 rebounds in his fourth start for the Wildcats (16-7, 7-5). Sasa Cuic had a career-high 25 points on 9-of-12 shooting to lead Oregon State (9-16, 1-11), which has dropped seven games in a row and appears to be on its way to a 16th non-winning season in 17 years. Marcel Jones had 14 points and seven rebounds for the Beavers and Josh Tarver had 13 points and five assists. The Wildcats have won two in a row. They had a 12-game winning streak interrupted with an overtime loss to Washington State, setting off a stretch where they lost six of eight until a 30-point win over Washington on Saturday. The Beavers have lost 13 of their last 15 matchups with Arizona, including 83-72 on Jan. 11. Williams led the Wildcats in that game, too, with a then-season high 27 points, eight rebounds and four assists. The Wildcats shot 61 percent and scored the final eight points before halftime to lead 36-28. Washington 79, California 71 Jon Brockman had 22 points – 17 in the second half – and 14 rebounds to lead desperate Washington past visiting California. Brockman’s fourth 20-point game and 10th double-double of the season kept alive an outside chance at an NCAA Tournament berth for the Huskies (15-8, 5-7). No Pac-10 team has ever been in the tournament without a winning record in the conference, Washington has six league games remaining before the Pac-10 tournament. Four of those games are at home, where Washington is 14-1 this season. The Huskies have won 53 of their last 56 games at Hec Edmundson Pavilion. Ayinde Ubaka, playing with an intestinal virus for the third week, scored 20 points and freshman Ryan Anderson had 17 with seven rebounds for the Bears (12-11, 4-7), who lost their fifth consecutive game. – From News Services 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

But Oregon couldn’t pull away until it outscored Arizona State 12-0 in the final 4:45 of the half to lead 33-21 at the break. The Sun Devils (6-17, 0-12) rallied in the second half. They outscored Oregon 21-9 in the first 10:26, with 18 of those points coming off six 3-pointers. Derek Glasser made four 3s himself, including one at the 9:33 mark to tie the game 42-42. The Ducks scored the next five points to reclaim a 47-42 lead, and a 3-pointer by Leunen with just under five minutes to play gave Oregon a 50-44 advantage. Though the Ducks wouldn’t hit another field goal in the game, Leunen seemingly sealed the win from the foul line, knocking down a pair of free throws with 44 seconds left to make it 52-45. No. 14 Washington State 58, Stanford 45 Tajuan Porter scored 24 points and No. 13 Oregon held on to beat visiting Arizona State 55-51 on Thursday night.
