Last night in the Pac-12... Washington and Cal stay in first

The Utes were off on Thursday, enjoying a mid-week bye as they prepare for "rival" Colorado Saturday at the Huntsman Center. We'll have more on that matchup later, but for now, a quick look at how things played out last night in the Pac-12.

Arizona 76, Washington State 72 • On the heels of nearly losing to Utah, the Wildcats again almost cost themselves in the title hunt against a bad team. Kyle Fogg, though, regarded a double-double, 16 points and 10 rebounds, to nip the Cougs. Washington State forward Brock Motum missed two of three free throws that could have tied the game with with 21 seconds remaining. Arizona kept pace with Cal and Washington in the standings and remains one game out of first place.

Washington 77, Arizona State 69 • The Huskies led by 24 points in the second half and the Sun Devils never really threatened, despite Washington's best efforts to give back its lead. "We just got bored with success really," guard Abdul Gaddy said. ASU found solace in the fact it was able to hang around in a road game.

Stanford 87, Oregon State 82 • In Palo Alto, two teams that played to four overtimes earlier this season went the more traditional route. Chasson Randle led the Cardinal with 24 points, while Aaron Bright added 20. Jared Cunningham led Oregon State with 22 points. The Beavers cut the lead to three with 15 seconds left, but couldn't get over the hump. The Beavers have now lost four of their last five games.

California 86, Oregon 83 • The Golden Bears are looking more and more like a conference champion. Cal overcame an eight-point deficit with five minutes remaining to spoil the Ducks upset bid. Justin Cobbs, the sophomore point guard, had the line of the night: 28 points, eight assists, four steals and no turnovers.
