COLLEGE BASKETBALL : PACIFIC 10 ROUNDUP : Arizona Sails Past Cal, 100-63

From Associated Press

Khalid Reeves hit five of Arizona's nine three-point baskets and the ninth-ranked Wildcats used a balanced attack to defeat California, 100-63, in a Pacific 10 Conference game Thursday night at Tucson.

The Wildcats (21-5 overall, 10-3 in the conference) avenged an 85-78 loss to the Golden Bears last month and tightened their grip on first place in the conference.

"This was payback time," Arizona Coach Lute Olson said. "We shot the ball well and that opened things up elsewhere."

Reeves, a reserve freshman guard, and Brian Williams each had 19 points, and Matt Muehlebach and Ed Stokes scored 13 apiece as Arizona won its 60th consecutive game at McKale Center, the nation's longest current home streak.

Arizona jumped to a 49-30 halftime lead and put the game away with a 12-2 run at the start of the second half. Brian Hendrick had 22 points for Cal.

Arizona State 75, Stanford 57--Lynn Collins scored 12 of his 18 points in the second half as the Sun Devils won at Tempe, Ariz.

Freshman Jamal Faulkner added 15 points, Isaac Austin 11 and freshman Stevin Smith 10 for the Sun Devils (15-8, 6-7).

Stanford (14-11, 7-8) got 18 points from Adam Keefe and 12 from John Patrick.

The Cardinal took a 28-26 lead on Deshon Wingate's layup with three minutes left in the first half.

Smith made a three-point basket with 2:44 left and a free throw with 14 seconds showing, and Matt Anderson made two foul shots on a Stanford technical to put Arizona State ahead, 34-30, at halftime.

Smith's third three-point basket of the game and another by Anderson gave the Sun Devils a 51-39 lead with 9:44 to play.
