TIMBERWOLVES-TRAIL BLAZERS

Lillard leads Blazers past T-Wolves 108-97

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Damian Lillard had 32 points and the short-handed Portland Trail Blazers rallied to beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 108-97 on Sunday night.

Thomas Robinson had 14 points and a career-high 18 rebounds for Portland, which won its second straight after a three-game slump.

Kevin Love scored 31 for Minnesota, which had won three in a row. It was Love's franchise-best fifth straight game with 30 or more points.

The Blazers played without All-Star forward LaMarcus Aldridge, who missed his third straight game with a groin injury.

WASHINGTON ST-OREGON

Short-handed Oregon beats Washington State 67-53

EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — Mike Moser had 21 points and a season-high five 3-pointers for Oregon in a 67-53 win against Washington State Sunday night.

Joseph Young had 18 points for the Ducks (18-8, 6-8 Pac-12), who appear to be getting back on track after a midseason slump.

It was the third-straight win for Oregon, which started the season 13-0 before losing eight of its next 10.

Sunday's win took some work, however, as the Ducks had to overcome a 31-24 halftime deficit and the absence of Damyean Dotson, who didn't play after starting 60 straight games.

DaVonte Lacy scored 19 to lead the Cougars (9-18, 2-13), and D.J. Shelton had 14 points and 10 rebounds.

Washington State shot 27.3 percent in the second half, making just 6 of 25 attempts from the field. The Cougars were also 6 for 22 from the 3-point line.

OREGON-WASHINGTON ST

Washington State trounces Oregon 108-88

PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) — Tia Presley scored 32 points, her third time hitting that mark in four games, to lead Washington State over Oregon 108-88 on Sunday.

The 108 points ranks third most in the program's history and the 42 made field goals are a school record.

Presley was 13 of 17 from the floor as WSU shot 53 percent. Lia Galdeira had 27 points, Mariah Cooks 13 and Shalie Dheensaw 12.

Washington State (15-13, 9-7 Pac 12) led by one at 44-43 after a tightly contested first half in which neither team led by more than six points.

The Cougars took over midway through the second half. Tied at 64 with 10:18 left, WSU went on an 11-1 run, punctuated by Galdeira's 3-pointer, to stretch the lead to 75-65. An 11-2 run late cemented the big win.

Katelyn Loper led Oregon (13-14, 4-12) with 22 points and Jillian Alleyne added 19.

OREGON ST-WASHINGTON

Hamblin leads Oregon State past Washington 77-57

SEATTLE (AP) — Ruth Hamblin scored 18 points and grabbed 14 rebounds to help Oregon State roll to a 77-57 victory over Washington on Sunday.

Oregon State led by just one at 16-15 but the Beavers went on a 15-2 run, with seven points by Gabriella Hanson, to take a 31-17 lead and led the rest of the way. The Beavers built a 42-25 lead at halftime.

Deven Hunter scored 17 points and Hanson added 15 for Oregon State (19-9, 11-5 Pac-12), which has won seven straight and is tied with No. 20 Arizona State for third place in the conference. The Beavers host the Sun Devils next Sunday to conclude their regular season.

Kelsey Plum scored 26 points and Jazmine Davis added 19 to lead Washington (16-11, 9-7) which snapped a four-game winning streak.
