Jermaine Marshall scored 22 points, Jonathan Gilling matched his season high with 15 and Arizona State pulled away in the second half to roll past California 78-60 Saturday in the Sun Devils’ final game of the season in Tempe, Ariz.
It probably was the final game at Arizona State for Sun Devils’ sophomore star playmaker Jahii Carson, whom many expect to make himself available for the NBA draft after this season. Carson had nine points and four assists.
The Sun Devils (21-8, 10-6) moved into sole possession of third place in the Pac-12, a half-game ahead of Stanford, which plays at No. 3 Arizona today.
Justin Cobbs scored 15, Jordan Mathews 14 and David Kravish 12 for Cal (18-11, 9-7).
Utah 75, Colorado 64: Jordan Loveridge scored 21 points on 9-of-14 shooting and Delon Wright also had 21 to lead the Utes over the Buffaloes in Salt Lake City.
The Utes (19-9, 8-8 Pac-12) shot 70.8 percent (17 of 24) from the field in the second half to pull away from the Buffaloes. Josh Scott had 17 points and Xavier Johnson added 10 for Colorado (20-9, 9-7), which lost to Utah for just the second time in the last nine meetings.
Oregon 78, USC 63: Mike Moser had 20 points and 12 rebounds, Joseph Young added 16 points, and the Ducks (20-8, 8-8) broke open a close game midway through the second half to defeat the Trojans (10-19, 1-15) in Los Angeles.
