Basketball: Sunday in the Pac-10

A pair of wins on the road . . .

— Arizona 72, North Carolina State 62: A decent win across the country for the Wildcats (10-2), who got 22 points from sophomore forward Derrick Williams and 31 points from their bench. Arizona won despite shooting 4 for 16 from the 3-PT line and getting outrebounding 36-28.

— Washington State 85, Santa Clara 79, OT: Klay Thompson hit a 3-pointer with 15 seconds left in regulation, then scored seven of his 23 points in overtime as the Cougars (8-1) survived on the road against the Broncos (6-6).  DeAngelo Casto had 15 points and 10 rebounds for WSU. Reggie Moore — in his fourth game back after a wrist injury — scored a season-high 15 and Marcus Capers had 14, also a season-high.

    Interesting that WSU started Aden and brought Reggie Moore off the bench. However, the hot shooting Aden played only 16 minutes, and Moore played like the starter he normally is.

    Bone is still tinkering with his lineup. But he’s got a fairly solid 8 man rotation. Watch out.

    Also, people have tended to forget about USC this Pac10 season (well, I have at least). But now I have to start looking at them, as they previously beat Texas, which has now beaten North Carolina, and barely lost to Kansas. Wow!
    What the heck is going on with that program these days?
