Whenever Washington got off a run, Damon Stoudamire was more than ready with his own volley.
No. 12 Arizona's leader set off 23-5 and 21-2 spurts Saturday and scored 24 points himself as the Wildcats, 17-4 and 7-2 in the Pacific 10, punished Washington, 91-65, at Tucson, to move into a tie with UCLA for first place. Washington fell to 5-12, 1-8.
"I took it upon myself to take over and do what I've done all year--shoot the three, penetrate and dish off," said Stoudamire, the league's leading scorer (21.7 points) and assist leader (7.6).
No. 22 Oregon 94, Cal 86--Orlando Williams scored 23 points, including four three-pointers in the second half, as the Ducks (13-5, 5-4) handed the Bears (11-7, 3-6) a school-record sixth consecutive home loss.
Williams made two three-pointers as Oregon opened the second half with a 14-2 run, and two more later in the period as the Ducks built a lead of as many as 21 points.
No. 17 Stanford 95, Oregon State 82--Brevin Knight and David Harbour each scored 23 points as the Cardinal (15-3, 6-3) held off Oregon State (6-12, 3-6) at Stanford.
The Cardinal survived Brent Barry's 28-point barrage by outrebounding Oregon State, 39-28.
The Beavers lost for the 18th time in 19 road games.
