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.
