Brockman’s putback lifts UW

Associated Press

Jon Brockman scored 19 points, including the game-winning put-back with 4.6 seconds remaining after his 18th rebound for his only field goal after halftime, and surging Washington beat Stanford 84-83 in men’s basketball on Thursday night in Seattle.

Isaiah Thomas added 18 points for the Huskies (11-3, 2-0 Pac-10), who rallied from eight points down early in the second half for their ninth consecutive victory.

Stanford (11-2, 1-2) lost its chance for the game-winning shot when Landry Fields caught a three-quarters-court pass but stumbled into the lane and lost the ball out of bounds with 2.2 seconds left.

Anthony Goods scored 19 points for the Cardinal, including the long jumper that gave them the lead with 14.4 seconds to go.

(20) Arizona State 69, Oregon State 38: At Tempe, Ariz., James Harden scored 22 points, and the Sun Devils used a smothering zone defense to rout the Beavers.

Oregon State’s 38 points are the fewest Arizona State has allowed against a Pac-10 opponent in 31 years as a conference member.

Arizona State rebounded quickly from a loss last weekend at California. Harden hit 10 of 11 shots from the field, his only miss coming from beyond the arc.

Rihards Kuksiks added 13 points for Arizona State, which has won nine of its past 10.

Oregon State was coming off an overtime victory over Southern California, its first Pac-10 win in two seasons. But the Beavers were baffled by Arizona State’s matchup zone, shooting a season-low 36.4 percent.

Lathen Wallace led Oregon State with 13 points.

Arizona State had been allowing 59.8 points per game, third in the Pac-10. But the Sun Devils turned up their defense against the Beavers, who average 62.6 points, ninth in the conference.

Arizona 67, Oregon 52: At Tucson, Ariz., Chase Budinger scored 20 points and the Wildcats won their first Pac-10 game of the season.

Jamelle Horne added 15 points on 5-for-5 shooting for Arizona. No player reached double figures for the Ducks, who shot 37 percent.

Oregon was 4 for 22 on 3-pointers, and two of the ones that went in came the final 1 1/2 minutes of the game.

Budinger, who had shot 24 percent (12 for 50) in his previous four games, still struggled from outside, going 1 for 5 on 3s, but he was 7 for 10 inside the 3-point line.

Michael Dunigan and Matthew Humphrey scored nine apiece for Oregon.

The Ducks’ leading scorer for the season, Tajuan Porter, finished with two points. He made just one of seven shots and was 0 for 4 on 3s.

Jordan Hill had nine points and 12 rebounds for Arizona. He had six points and 10 boards in the first half, when the Wildcats built a 30-19 lead.
