Oregon State 68, #19 Washington 56: "Calvin Haynes came up big for the Beavers off the bench, with 11 points, 7 rebounds, 3 assists, and 2 steals in just 21 minutes. Haynes had 5 consecutive points with less than 3 minutes left, which opened a tight 58-54 game up to a 63-54 Oregon St. advantage with a minute and a half left.
Venoy Overton got a layin to answer, but it would be the last points Washington would score. Notably it was also the only field goal the Huskies had in the last 8 minutes of the game, after Suggs' last three pointer." (Recap via Building the Dam)
#22 Arizona 78, Stanford 69: "Jeremy Green scored 21 points and Stanford committed only eight turnovers, but the Cardinal shot 1-for-13 from 3-point range in the second half in a 78-69 loss at home to No. 21 Arizona." (Recap via Rule of Tree)
Oregon 69, Washington State 43: "This game never happened." (Recap via CougCenter)
More game recaps, plus updated standings after the break
California 66, Arizona State 62: "Give ASU credit. Their D was like iron and they made tough shots all game long. So how did the Bears win while shooting 39.6% from the field and 23.5% from 3? How about by going 24-29 (82.8%) from the line. If you just looked at shooting the basketball, this was a game we should have lost.
They were draining buckets from all over while our shots were rimming out. Even frosh phenom Allen Crabbe struggled mightily with arguably his worst shooting performance of the year. But while as armchair point guards everywhere started to rationalize that "this just isn't our night," the Bears never gave up. They willed themselves to find a way to win."
