T25-OREGON-COLORADO

No. 20 Colorado hands 10th-ranked Oregon 1st loss

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) — Askia Booker scored a career-high 27 points, 11 in the last 4:40, and No. 20 Colorado rallied in the second half to hand No. 10 Oregon its first loss of the season, 100-91 on Sunday.

Spencer Dinwiddie added 23 points and Xavier Johnson and Josh Scott had 15 points apiece for Colorado (13-2, 2-0 Pac-12), which is off to its best start since the 1968-69 team began the season 13-2. Scott had 12 rebounds for the Buffaloes, who remain unbeaten in 11 home games this season.

Mike Moser had 24 points to lead Oregon (13-1, 1-1), which was denied its first 14-0 start since 1937-38. Joseph Young and Damyean Dotson both added 16 points.

Leading the nation in scoring, Oregon, one of seven unbeaten Division I teams entering the day, could not keep up with Colorado.

WASHINGTON ST-ARIZONA ST

Marshall's 26 leads Arizona St. past Cougars 66-47

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Jermaine Marshall scored 18 of his 26 points in the second half and Arizona State pulled away to beat Washington State 66-47 on Sunday.

Jahii Carson added 14 points and Shaquielle McKissic 12 for the Sun Devils (12-3, 1-1 Pac-12), who were coming off a 76-65 home loss to Washington in their conference opener.

DaVonte Lacy, Washington State's leading scorer for the season, was back in the lineup eight days after an emergency appendectomy but left with 6:23 to go in the first half and did not return.

Freshman Que Johnson scored 18 for Washington State.

The Cougars (7-7, 0-2) shot 34 percent three days after their worst offensive showing in 76 years in a 60-25 loss to top-ranked Arizona Thursday night.

CANUCKS-DUCKS

Perry's OT goal lifts Ducks over Canucks, 4-3

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Corey Perry scored his league-leading eighth game-winning goal of the season with 0.6 seconds on the clock in overtime, giving the Anaheim Ducks a come-from-behind 4-3 victory over the Vancouver Canucks on Sunday night.

The Ducks, off to a franchise-best 31-8-5 start and 17-0-2 at Honda Center, are the only team in the league without a regulation loss at home. Anaheim is also the third NHL team to open a season with a home point streak of 19 or more games, joining San Jose (2008-09) and Philadelphia (1979-80).

Nick Bonino got the tying goal with 1:27 left in the third period. Saku Koivu and Matt Beleskey scored in the second and Jonas Hiller stopped 17 shots.

Ryan Kesler and Henrik Sedin scored power play goals 2 minutes apart in the first and defenseman Kevin Bieksa scored in the third for the Canucks. Rookie Eddie Lack made a career-high 45 saves.

BKW-T25-ARIZONA-ST-WASHINGTON

No. 24 Arizona St beats Washington, 78-60

SEATTLE (AP) — Katie Hempen came off the bench to score a dozen points to lead No. 24 Arizona State to a 78-60 win over Washington in a Pac-12 Conference contest Sunday afternoon, returning to its winning ways against the Huskies.

Washington swept ASU last year, but had lost 15 of 16 games before that and now has lost 16 of its last 19 against the Sun Devils.

Arizona State (12-2, 1-1 Pac 12) bounced back quickly from an 85-78 upset by Washington State in the conference opener Friday, racing to a 47-29 lead at intermission.

Kelsey Moos and Deja Mann each scored 11 points for ASU while Joy Burke and Eliza Normen both added 10 points off the bench. The Sun Devils out-rebounded Washington 44-32.

Jazmine Davis scored 23 points on 8-for-13 shooting to lead the Huskies (8-5, 1-1 Pac 12). Kelsey Plum added another 16 points.

BKW-T25-OREGON-ST-STANFORD

Ogwumike, No. 4 Stanford rout Oregon State 89-67

STANFORD, Calif. (AP) — Chiney Ogwumike scored 17 of her 31 points in the first 8½ minutes, and fourth-ranked Stanford overwhelmed Oregon State 89-67 on Sunday.

Ogwumike's scintillating start powered the Cardinal (13-1, 2-0 Pac-12) to a 29-4 lead that put the game away in a hurry. She also finished with 13 rebounds, six assists, three steals and two blocks.

Stanford has won 12 straight since losing at top-ranked Connecticut on Nov. 11.

Sydney Wiese scored 15 points and Samantha Siegner had 11 points and eight rebounds for Oregon State (8-6, 0-2), which has lost its last three games to ranked opponents. The Beavers fell to No. 2 Notre Dame on Dec. 29 and at No. 23 California on Friday.

BKW-T25-OREGON-CALIFORNIA

No. 23 Cal outlasts Oregon 101-98 in overtime

BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) — Reshanda Gray scored 33 points and grabbed 13 rebounds as No. 23 California overcame a late rally from Oregon for a 101-98 overtime victory Sunday.

After Gray fouled out in overtime, Brittany Boyd broke a tie at 96 with a running bank shot on a drive to the hoop. Boyd then made 3 of 4 free throws in the final 20 seconds as Cal (10-3, 2-0 Pacific 12 Conference) held off Oregon (9-4, 0-2).

Cal's nine-point lead with two minutes left in regulation was erased by a 10-1 Oregon run, capped by a layup from Chrishae Rowe with seven seconds left. Boyd's 3-point attempt at the buzzer was off the mark.

Boyd had 17 points and nine assists and Courtney Range scored 12 points to go along with 13 rebounds for Cal.

Rowe led Oregon with 24 points and 10 rebounds while Jillian Alleyne had 21 points and 12 rebounds.

SEAHAWKS-LYNCH FINED

Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch fined $50,000 by NFL

The NFL has fined Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch $50,000 for violating the league's media policy.

Lynch stepped in front of a camera Friday and spoke for less than 90 seconds. It was his first time taking questions from the media all season, having politely declined every previous time.

Lynch's longest answer was 24 words when asked about the Seahawks' focus this week not knowing who their opponent will be.

The Seahawks will host the New Orleans Saints in the divisional playoffs Saturday.

Lynch finished the regular season with 1,257 yards rushing and 12 touchdowns.
