Pac-12 basketball: Payton Pritchard lifts No. 9 Oregon over Arizona State
Payton Pritchard scored 29 points, and No. 9 Oregon held off Arizona State 78-69 on Saturday night in Eugene, Ore.
Much of the game was a personal duel between Pritchard and Arizona State’s Remy Martin, who also had 29 points.
Chris Duarte added 20 points for the Ducks (14-3, 3-1 Pac-12 Conference). They have won 11 of their last 12 games against the Sun Devils.
Arizona State (10-6, 1-2) remained one of only two Pac-12 teams, along with Washington State, that has never won at Matthew Knight Arena, which opened in 2011.
Pritchard’s sixth three-pointer pushed Oregon’s lead to 45-31, but the Sun Devils battled back and Martin scored seven consecutive Arizona State points to cut it to 53-48.
The Ducks pushed the lead back into double digits, but again it was Martin responding with another seven-point spurt to draw the Sun Devils to within 65-60 before Pritchard’s three-point play put Oregon back up by eight.
The Ducks are 10-0 at home, sweeping the Arizona schools at home for the second consecutive season.
at Stanford 88, Washington State 62: Freshman Tyrell Terry scored a season-high 22 points and grabbed six rebounds in helping the Cardinal win for the seventh time in eight games with a victory over the Cougars.
Carlos da Silva scored all 15 of his points in the first half for Stanford (14-2, 3-0), which beat Washington State for a seventh straight time.
Isaac White added 11 points, his second double-figure game of the season. Bryce Wills had 10.
Isaac Bonton reached double figures in scoring for the sixth consecutive game, netting 15 points for the Cougars (10-7, 1-3), who have lost three of four to open conference play since a six-game winning streak. Jeff Pollard had a game-high 10 rebounds and scored eight points.
Daron Henson, who hadn’t played since a two-minute appearance in Washington State’s season-opening win over Seattle, was four for six from three-point range and scored 12 points.
at California 61, Washington 58 (OT): Matt Bradley banked in a three-pointer with six seconds remaining in overtime, lifting the Golden Bears to a win over the Huskies.
Bradley finished with 17 points and five rebounds to help Cal (8-8, 2-1 Pac-12) to its second straight victory after a four-game losing streak. Grant Anticevich added 13 points and seven rebounds, and Paris Austin scored 10 points.
Jaden McDaniels had 12 points and 11 rebounds for Washington. The Huskies (11-6, 1-3) rallied from 10 down in the final 12 minutes of the second half but made only one basket in overtime.
Bradley scored on a left-handed layup with 1:35 left in overtime to give Cal a two-point lead. The teams traded misses before Washington’s Nahziah Carter sank two of three free throws to make it 58-all with 34.2 seconds left after being fouled by Anticevich while taking a three-pointer.
Bradley, Cal’s leading scorer this season, got the ball and dribbled down the clock before taking the game-winning shot above the arc. The ball banked in as the crowd at Haas Pavilion erupted.
