Stanford wins on Goods' basket

From the Associated Press

Anthony Goods made a long three-point basket with 3.3 seconds left, lifting Stanford to a 71-68 overtime victory over No. 22 Washington State on Saturday at Palo Alto.

The Cougars' Kyle Weaver had 14 points, a career-high 13 rebounds and 10 assists for what is believed to be Washington State's first triple-double. He also had a career-high six steals and helped the Cougars force the overtime period.

Ivory Clark scored on a putback of Weaver's miss with 35 seconds left in overtime, then was fouled and missed the potential go-ahead free throw, giving the Cardinal (11-4, 3-2 Pac-10) the ball back with 29 seconds to play.

Goods, who matched his career high with 30 points, shot over Clark for his fifth three-point basket of the game.

"I didn't expect Clark to come out there," Goods said. "I just pulled back, with a little hesitation, and just let it go."

Washington State (15-3, 4-2) then had 3.3 seconds to inbound the ball from the baseline and go the length of the court, and Daven Harmeling missed from just past half court at the buzzer.

The Cougars had a final chance in regulation, but Weaver couldn't control the ball and failed to get off a shot in the last 4.3 seconds.

Weaver's triple-double is the first at Washington State since at least 1968-69. Some school records before then are incomplete.

California 77, Washington 69 -- Justin Dentmon made only one of two free throws in the final second of regulation to send the game to overtime, and Ayinde Ubaka took over from there, scoring six of his 13 points in the extra session to lead the Golden Bears at Berkeley.

Ubaka made a jump shot on the first possession of overtime for California (11-6, 3-2) and then scored off a backdoor pass from Omar Wilkes to make it 71-67.

The Huskies (11-6, 1-5) turned the ball over on their first three possessions of overtime and didn't threaten after that to drop to 0-5 on the road.

Oregon State 67, Arizona State 59 -- The Beavers (9-9, 1-4 Pac-10) overcame an eight-point second-half deficit to earn their first victory at Wells Fargo Arena in Tempe since 1998.

It was the seventh consecutive loss for the Sun Devils (6-11, 0-6).

Oregon State shot 26.3% from three-point range, and Arizona State shot only 18.2%.
