Three games, three upsets in wacky Pac-10

Crazy night for the Pac-10. And crazy doesn’t necessarily mean good. It certainly wasn’t good for my picks. The games were fun to watch, but I got to believe a night like this only hurts the conference in the long run.
Pac-10 fans may clamor for parity, which is what we’ve got. FSN analyst Marques Johnson predicted the conference champion would have a 12-6 record, which would be the worst record since the Pac-10 expanded to 10 teams.
Anyway, let’s get to the links.
AROUND THE PAC-10:
— We’ll start with Bob Condotta who was courtside to witness Seattle University lay down a 51-point beat down at Oregon State. The 99-48 Redhawks victory was SU’s first win over a Pac-10 team since Dec. 9, 1978. It was OSU’s worst home loss ever and the margin of defeat tied the most in school history.
— The defeat was stunning for the Beavers considering they nearly upset No. 24 Washington last week. Coach Craig Robinson didn’t allow his players to talk to the media after the game and say they would be back on the floor at around 5 a.m. Thursday morning.
— Oregonian columnist John Canzano writes the Ducks must make the NCAA tournament to save coach Ernie Kent’s job.
— Here’s all you really need to know about California’s 76-75 upset to UCLA. The Bears missed 16 of 18 three-point shots and Bruins forward Michael Roll hit a 13-foot jumper with 1.9 seconds left in overtime to put UCLA ahead.
— But in case you want to read more, here’s how the game looked from a Los Angeles perspective..
— And finally, the night’s final shocker was another nailbiter in the Bay Area. At face value, Stanford’s 54-53 victory against USC is an upset considering the Trojans had an 8-game winning streak and the Cardinal had lost four of its last five games.
— Still, it’s been a tumultuous week for the Trojans who have just 15 games remaining after news broke earlier this week of the school’s self-imposed ban.
O.J. Mayo’s agent told the Los Angeles Times: “Mayo was totally in the dark about anything happening inappropriately at USC.”
— And finally, tickets and travel packages for the Maui Invitational go on sale this morning at 9 a.m. PST. The tournament is Nov. 22-24. The eight-team field includes: UW, Connecticut, Kentucky, Oklahoma, Michigan State, Virginia, Wichita State and Charminade.
