TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Oumar Ballo scored 16 points, Azuolas Tubelis had a double-double and No. 11 Arizona withstood a late rally to end No. 5 UCLA’s 14-game winning streak with a 58-52 victory. The Wildcats appeared to be cruising to their biggest win of the season, taking a 56-44 lead on Ballo’s alley-oop dunk with 2:07 left. The Bruins created four straight turnovers to pull within 56-52. UCLA then blocked consecutive shots, but couldn’t convert on two shots of its own at the other end. Arizona’s Pelle Larsson hit two free throws with 0.9 seconds to close it out. Tyger Campbell led the Bruins with 13 points.

STANFORD, Calif. (AP) — Spencer Jones scored 16 points, Harrison Ingram added 11 points, eight rebounds, five assists and two steals and Stanford beat Oregon 71-64. Stanford (7-12, 2-7 Pac-12) has won back-to-back games following a string of five straight losses that capped a stretch of nine in 11 games. Jones hit a 3-pointer that made it 5-3 with 17:46 left in the first half and the Cardinal led the rest of the way. Jermaine Couisnard hit 8-of-8 free throws and led Oregon (11-9, 5-4) with 18 points but made just 4 of 12 from the field and 2 of 9 from behind the arc. Stanford made 26 of 52 from the field, 9 of 23 (39.1%) from 3-point range and 10 of 13 from the free-throw line.

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Drew Peterson scored 19 points, Boogie Ellis added 18 and Southern California cruised to a 77-69 victory over Arizona State. Peterson sank 7 of 11 shots with three 3-pointers for the Trojans (14-6, 6-3 Pac-12 Conference). He added eight rebounds and four assists. Ellis hit four 3-pointers, grabbed six boards and handed out four assists. Tre White contributed 12 points and seven rebounds before fouling out. Vincent Iwuchukwu had 12 points and five rebounds off the bench. Warren Washington tallied 21 points and eight rebounds to pace the Sun Devils (15-5, 6-3). USC used a balanced scoring attack — getting nine points from Ellis and eight each from Kobe Johnson, White and Iwuchukwu — to take a 43-33 lead at halftime.

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Branden Carlson scored 25 points on 10-of-17 shooting, Rollie Worster finished a rebound shy of a triple-double and Utah never trailed in its 86-61 win over Washington. Carlson had eight rebounds, three steals and three blocks and Worster had 11 points, 10 assists and nine rebounds. Marco Anthony won the battle with Worster for a rebound — without a Washington player in the vicinity — with about a minute left, drawing boos from the crowd. Anthony scored 13 points and grabbed 10 rebounds — his fourth double-double of the season — and Gabe Madsen scored 17 points for Utah (14-7, 7-3 Pac-12). Keion Brooks Jr. led Washington (12-9, 4-6) with 17 points, nine rebounds and four blocks. Cole Bajema scored 13 points and Noah Williams added 10 points.

STANFORD, Calif. (AP) — Cameron Brink had 25 points, 14 rebounds and three blocked shots, Haley Jones added 25 points, 12 boards and a pair of blocks, and the fourth-ranked Stanford women bounced back from a loss at USC by beating eighth-ranked Utah 74-62. Hannah Jump made her first five shots and scored 13 points on a night when the Cardinal lost freshman point guard Talana Lepolo to a left foot injury in the first quarter. Alissa Pili scored 25 points and Gianna Kneepkens had 19 for Utah.

SEATTLE (AP) — Charisma Osborne nailed a half-court 3-pointer at the first-half buzzer to kick off a 19-0 scoring run for No. 9 UCLA, and the Bruins held on to beat Washington 51-47. UCLA shot just 23% in the first half and trailed 27-15 before Osborne’s buzzer-beater. The Bruins then scored the first 16 points of the second half. Osborne and Kiki Rice scored 12 points apiece and Lina Sontag added 11 points and eight rebounds for the Bruins, who have won two straight since a loss at then-No. 2 Stanford a week ago. Jayda Noble led the way with nine points for Washington.

BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) — Quay Miller had 26 points, Jaylyn Sherrod scored 11 of her 15 points in the fourth quarter and No. 24 Colorado beat California 73-66 for its seventh straight victory. Aaronette Vonleh gave Colorado a seven-point lead in the beginning of the third quarter but the Buffaloes went scoreless for the next four minutes as Cal tied it at 36-all. Colorado was held to nine points on 4-of-11 shooting in the third quarter but made 9 of 11 in the fourth in scoring 30 points. Sherrod’s 3-pointer with 2:58 left in the fourth gave Colorado a 67-57 lead. The Buffaloes didn’t make another field goal the rest of the way but went 8 of 8 from the free-throw line.
