Beavers end skid against Cardinal

Associated Press

Calvin Haynes scored a career-high 25 points to help Oregon State win its second consecutive Pac-10 men’s basketball road game, a 72-60 win over Stanford on Saturday night.

Seth Tarver added a season-high 19 points and Roeland Schaftenaar had 18 as the Beavers matched their total conference wins of the past two seasons combined.

Anthony Goods scored 15 points to lead the Cardinal, who had a six-game winning streak against the Beavers snapped. Landry Fields had 12 points and 11 rebounds for his second career double-double.

The Beavers, who beat California 69-65 on Thursday night, last swept a trip to the Bay Area in 1993, and hadn’t won two straight Pac-10 road games since 2003.

The Cardinal played their second straight game without senior point guard Mitch Johnson, who is out with a lower right calf strain. Beavers sophomore guard Lathen Wallace was unable to go after suffering a contusion of his lower tail bone against Cal.

The Beavers, who shot 62 percent from the floor, including 68 percent in the second half, never trailed in the contest after taking a 16-2 edge six minutes in. Stanford never got closer than six the rest of the way.

Oregon State led at halftime, 34-28.

California 76, Oregon 69: Jerome Randle had 22 points and five assists, Jamal Boykin added 13 points and nine rebounds and the Golden Bears kept the Ducks winless in Pac-10 play with a victory in Berkeley, Calif.

Tajuan Porter scored 26 points as the only player in double figures for the downtrodden Ducks, who are the only winless Pac-10 team and off to their worst conference start since losing 11 straight in the 1992-93 conference season.

Cal had lost two straight since getting back in the top 25 for the first time since 2003 following a 4-0 start in the conference and a nine-game winning streak. The Golden Bears lost at archrival Stanford on Jan. 17, then 69-65 at home to Oregon State on Thursday night for their first defeat at Haas Pavilion.

Arizona 96, Houston 90 (OT): Jordan Hill scored 30 points, including a three-point play in overtime, as the Wildcats rallied for a non-conference win over the Cougars (12-5) in Tucson, Ariz.

The Wildcats, motivated after Houston’s Aubrey Coleman was ejected for a flagrant foul after stepping on Chase Budinger’s face following a charge call with 9:51 left in the second half, scored eight points in the final 1:30 to force overtime at 88-all.

Hill scored the only basket in overtime when he connected on a three-point play with 3:55 remaining for a 91-88 lead.

Kyle Fogg sealed the win for Arizona by making two free throws with 7.4 seconds left.

Nic Wise, besides tying the game at 88 with a 3-pointer with 10 seconds left in regulation, finished with 23 points for the Wildcats while Budinger had 15.

Kelvin Lewis had 27 of his career-high 35 points for Houston in the second half.
