Washington fell apart in the final minutes against Arizona State during a 78-68 defeat that extended their losing streak to seven in a row.

Here’s the game stories in the Arizona Republic, Associated Press and Everett Herald.

And here’s the box score and updated season statistics.


Brandon Ashley, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Kaleb Tarczewski each scored 17 points as Arizona routed Washington State 86-59 at Beasley Coliseum. T.J. McConnell added 14 points for the Wildcats (22-3, 10-2 Pacific 12). Arizona led by 34 points after the first half, but was outscored in the second.

— Considering last year’s a 60-25 loss to the Wildcats in Tucson, Ariz., the Cougars 27-point beatdown was an improvement. Washington State Dexter Kernich-Drew scored 20 points and DaVonte Lacy scored 18 for Washington State (11-14, 5-8), which was coming off a win over Arizona State on Thursday. The Cougars were done in by woeful 27 percent shooting in the first half.

— No. 11 Utah played just enough defense at the end for a 76-71 victory over California at Huntsmen Center. Jakob Poeltl had 18 points and eight rebounds while Delon Wright added 16 points for the Utes and Brandon Taylor finished with 13.

Tyrone Wallace led Cal with 26 points, including 17 in the first half and Jabari Bird scored 21 as the Golden Bears’ five-game winning streak was snapped.

— Colorado rallied and pulled off a 64-58 upset win over Stanford, snapping a three-game skid and avoiding its first three-game home losing streak in five years. Askia Booker led the way with 17 points. Xavier Johnson added 13 rebounds to go with his 10 points — for his first career double-double — and Josh Scott pulled down 10 boards as the Buffs (12-12, 5-7).

— Stanford (16-9, 7-5) lost for the fourth time in the past five games. Senior center Stefan Nastic led the Cardinal with 24 points and Chasson Randle had 14.

— And here’s a look at the conference standings. If the season ended today, Washington would be seeded 11th and play No. 6 Stanford in the first round of the Pac-12 Tournament.
