Huskies Mauled By The Bears

Sun., Feb. 22, 1998

Geno Carlisle and Thomas Kilgore combined for 41 points as California used a second-half surge to defeat Washington 84-67 in Oakland, Calif.

Cal (11-12, 7-7 Pac-10) has won nine of its last 11 home games over Washington (15-9, 8-7). The Huskies, fighting for an NCAA tournament bid, lost their second straight and are just 3-6 since an overtime win over Cal on Jan. 22.

Trailing 54-53 after Washington’s Todd MacCulloch scored on a drive with 9:40 to play, the Bears outscored the Huskies 16-2 over the next 5 minutes to take control.

Sean Lampley’s basket with 4:24 to go put Cal up 69-56. After the Huskies closed to within 72-64 on Thalo Green’s drive with 2:33 to go, the Bears put it away with a flourish, scoring 10 points in the final minute on a flurry of fast breaks.

Carlisle scored a game-high 23 points, while Kilgore added 18. MacCulloch topped Washington with 21 points and 10 rebounds.

Washington outscored Cal 20-7 over a 10-minute stretch of the first half to turn a 20-10 deficit into a 30-27 lead.

“There is no question in my mind,” Washington coach Bob Bender said, “that this loss, and the way we have played, especially in these past two games, is completely my responsibility and fault. I have not gotten this team to understand how tough it is to play at this level.

“Now we have to finish out what games we have left, and see what happens.”

(3) Arizona 81, Oregon 66

Mike Bibby scored 17 of his 25 points in the second half and the Wildcats bounced back from Thursday’s near-loss with a victory over the Ducks in Eugene, Ore.

Miles Simon added 20 points and five assists as the Wildcats (24-3, 14-0 Pac-10) held Oregon without a basket for nearly 6 minutes during a key stretch of the second half and cruised to their 17th straight win, the nation’s longest winning streak.

The Wildcats avoided their first conference loss of the season Thursday night by beating Oregon State 71-70 on Simon’s running jumper at the buzzer.

Arizona led 38-29 at halftime, but Oregon went on an 8-2 run to open the second half. Three baskets by Henry Madden, followed by Jamar Curry’s leaning jumper, cut the lead to 40-37 with 16:09 remaining.

The Wildcats clamped down on defense, going on a 17-2 run and holding the Ducks to just two free throws over a span of 5:56 to go up 57-39 with 10:44 to play. Bibby scored nine points during the run.

The Wildcats have won 14 of their last 15 games in Eugene, with the only loss coming last year.

Arizona’s 17-game winning streak also ties for the second-longest in school history. The team won 19 straight in 1992-93, and also started the Pac-10 season 14-0. Arizona had a 17-game streak in 1928-29.

Oregon threatened the Wildcats twice in the first half, but couldn’t control Arizona’s backcourt of Bibby and Simon.

The Ducks missed their first seven shots but took an 8-7 lead on consecutive 3-pointers by A.D. Smith and Mike McShane.

Arizona St. 70, Oregon St. 63

In Corvallis, Ore., Jeremy Veal scored 19 points to lead the Sun Devils over the Beavers. Arizona State (17-10, 6-7) recovered from a five-point halftime deficit with a 17-7 run to open the second period.

The Sun Devils regained the lead for good when Mike Batiste hit a 3-pointer with 15:48 remaining.

Jerome Vaden scored three of his team-high 19 points for Oregon State (12-15, 2-12) with 2:03 remaining to bring the Beavers within four points at 61-57.

Defensive breakdowns then allowed transition dunks from Batiste and Jason Patton in the final minute to seal the victory for Arizona State.

Oregon State’s team-leading scorer and rebounder, Corey Benjamin, did not play, due to an abdominal strain suffered against Washington State a week ago.

Arizona St (17-10) - Lazor 5-7 4-4 14, Batiste 8-18 0-2 17, House 2-5 0-0 4, Veal 9-13 0-0 19, Lewis 3-9 2-2 9, Patton 3-4 1-2 7, Kelly 0-0 0-0 0. Totals 30-56 7-10 70.
