TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Tyler Bey scored 19 points, Lucas Siewert added 14 and No. 20 Colorado overcame a slow start to beat Arizona State 68-61. Colorado won its first road game in conference play and has won seven of eight overall. Siewert hit 4 of 6 3-pointers and Bey made his only attempt from long range to give the Buffaloes some much-needed offense. Arizona State has dropped five of its last seven. The Sun Devils pulled within 49-44 with about 7 minutes left but Siewert responded with his fourth 3-point to stop the rally. Remy Martin led Arizona State with 25 points.

EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — Sabrina Ionescu had a career-high 37 points to become Oregon's all-time leading scorer and the sixth-ranked Ducks handed No. 3 Stanford it's first conference loss with an 87-55 victory on Thursday night. Ionescu went into the game needing 24 points to match Oregon career leader Alison Lang, who had 2,252 between 1980-84. When the record was announced on the video scoreboard, the crowd gave the senior guard a standing ovation. Kiana Williams had 15 points for Stanford, which trailed by as many as 30 points.

SEATTLE (AP) — Isaiah Stewart scored 11 of his 13 points in the second half, RaeQuan Battle scored 11 first-half points in the first start of his career, and Washington beat Oregon State 64-56. Washington rebounded from a miserable trip to the Bay Area with a pair of losses last week. A new-look lineup provided the Huskies a needed spark. Jaden McDaniels did not play after starting the first 17 games. Marcus Tsohonis scored 11 points off the bench. Kylor Kelley led Oregon State with 16 points and Tres Tinkle added 15. It was a dud of a response by the Beavers after last Sunday’s impressive home win over Arizona.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Jonah Mathews scored 19 points, Daniel Utomi added 17 and Southern California defeated California 88-56 for its eighth win in its last nine games. Onyeka Okongwu had 12 points and eight rebounds for the Trojans, who led for all but the first 101 seconds. USC made 14 3-pointers, with Utomi sinking four and Mathews three. Matt Bradley led Cal with 13 points and Kareem South scored 12. The Golden Bears shot just 33.9% from the field as they had a two-game winning streak snapped.

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Max Hazzard had 24 points and made six 3-pointers, Zeke Nnaji added 24 points and Arizona rode a dominating first half to a 93-77 rout over Utah. The Wildcats played without center Chase Jeter due to back spasms, but made up for it shooting the Utes out of McKale Center in the first half. Arizona had eight 3-pointers to lead by 24 at halftime and went 15 for 29 from the arc overall to bounce back from being swept by the Pac-12 Oregon schools last week. Timmy Allen and Riley Battin had 16 points each to lead the Utes.

UNDATED (AP) — Nick Rolovich struck all the right chords when being introduced as the new head coach at Washington State. He spoke of the importance of the Apple Cup against rival Washington. He spoke about the need to recruit the state of Washington and the Northwest. He spoke of wanting to build on the foundation left behind by Mike Leach after eight seasons. The move from Leach's “Air Raid" to the run-and-shoot offense under Rolovich should be an easy transition. It was one of the reasons Rolovich was near the top of Washington State's list.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Dave Salo will retire as Southern California men's and women's swimming coach after 14 years when the season ends in late March. He will continue coaching Olympic hopefuls who train on the school's campus. Salo says that after the Tokyo Games end in August he will continue with Novaquatics Swim Club, where he worked from 1990 to 2006 before taking over at USC. Amanda Beard, Lenny Krayzelburg, Jason Lezak, Aaron Peirsol and Rebecca Soni were among the Olympians he coached at USC. Salo was an assistant on U.S. Olympic staffs in 2000, 2004 and 2012.

UNDATED (AP) — Stanford has been the surprise of the Pac-12 so far this season, entering this week as the only team without a conference loss. The young Cardinal opened Pac-12 play with a win over rival California and swept the Washington schools last week. Stanford faces a big test on Saturday on the road against Southern California. The Cardinal open the week with a road game against UCLA.
