Two Pac-12 teams in action Sunday . . . two more defeats.
It was a forgettable week for the conference, which went 10-16 since last Monday, including UCLA’s win over Division II Chaminade. Pac-12 teams were 0-4 record against Top-25 opponents, three of those defeats by 16 points or more.
– UC Riverside 64, Washington State 63: The Highlanders (2-4), whose only previous victory was over Cal Lutheran, topped the Cougars (2-4) in the seventh-place game of the 76 Classic in Anaheim. It was just the third win for UCR in 27 tries against current Pac-12 members. Brock Motum had 15 points and Faisal Aden 14 for WSU.
– DePaul 68, Arizona State 64: The Blue Demons forced 19 turnovers and beat the Sun Devils (2-4) in the fifth-place game of the Old Spice Classic in Orlando, Fla. Keala King had 22 points to lead ASU and Trent Lockett added 19 points and 12 rebounds.
