Basketball: A free throw fiasco at Stanford

A wrapup of Thursday night’s Pac-12 action . . .

   – Stanford 68, Utah 65: The Cardinal (14-3, 4-1) overcame a 5-for-17 night at the free throw line to move into a tie for first place in the Pac-12 standings with Cal. Josh Huestis had 13 points and 11 rebounds for Stanford. Chris Hines scored a career-high 21 for the Utes (4-12, 1-3), who made just 1 of 9 FTs. Yes, that’s a combined 6 for 26 from the line: 23.1 percent.

   – Arizona 81, Oregon State 73, OT: The Wildcats (12-5, 3-1) outscored the Beavers (11-6, 1-4) by a 9-1 margin in overtime to prevail in a game that featured a mini-fracas near the end. Kyle Fogg scored 23 points for Arizona, freshman Nick Johnson added 19 and Brendon Lavender hit 5 of 6 from 3-point range to score 18 points in 19 minutes off the bench. Jared Cunningham scored 22 points for OSU, which has played five overtime periods the past two games without a win.

   – Oregon 67, Arizona State 58: Devoe Joseph scored 15 points and the Ducks (12-5, 3-2) became the first team to win two road games in the Pac-12. The Sun Devils (5-11, 1-3) got a season-high 23 points from junior Trent Lockett, who has been forced to play point guard since Keala King was suspended, then dismissed from the team. Lockett has 18 turnovers the past three games.

    Good for Oregon to win 2 on the road, but let us note against whom the wins have come: WSU and ASU, hardly power houses in the conference.

    I would say our win at Oregon, Arizona’s at USC, Stanford’s at OSU, are all more impressive than their 2.

    Lets hope CU takes it to Furd.
