Basketball: Not a good night for the Pac-12

Unless you think the CBI is worth your time, it was a lost night for the Pac . . .

   — Bucknell 65, Arizona 54: The Bison (25-9) of the Patriot League eliminate the top-seeded Wildcats (23-12) in an NIT opener at Tucson. Solomon Hill had 17 points and 10 rebounds for the Cats, who shot 35.4 percent.

   — Oregon State 80, Western Illinois 59: The Beavers (20-14) got 22 points, eight rebounds, five assists and three steals from San Leandro High product Jared Cunningham and cruised to victory in their CBI opener at Corvallis.
