Highlights of Washington’s win over Oregon

Thanks to Kyle McCormick for the highlights (above) from Washington’s 76-60 win over Oregon.
After two Pac-12 games, Washington’s Tony Wroten Jr. and C.J. Wilcox are first and second respectively in the conference in scoring.
Wroten is averaging 21.5 points per game and Wilcox is averaging 19.5. Here’s a look at the Pac-12 statistics.
One of them will likely win the Pac-12 Player of the Week award on Monday.
Wroten replaced Wilcox in the starting lineup last week and both players have thrived in their new roles.
Wroten had 26 points, nine rebounds and four assists to lead UW to a 95-80 win over Oregon State last Thursday. Wilcox added 15 points.
On Saturday Wicox led the Huskies with 24 points, including six three-pointers in the win over Oregon. Wroten added 17 points, five assists and four rebounds.
THREE THINGS WE LEARNED ABOUT THE PAC-12:
— California, Stanford, Arizona and Washington appear to be the class of the conference. The Golden Bears and Cardinal swept the Los Angeles teams, which is no easy task. Cal made UCLA look like a high school team in the second half of its 85-69 win while Stanford made plays in the final minutes of games against UCLA and USC. Washington looked dominant at home and Arizona easily took care of cross-state rival ASU in a 68-51 victory.
— Utah may be worse than what we thought. The Utes managed just 33 points against Colorado in a 40-point defeat. That’s almost unheard of. Hate to keep hammering this point, but 0-18 is a very strong possibility for Utah. And that’s too bad.
— This freshmen class may be better than advertised. Three freshmen are among the top five in scoring in conference only games. Of course it’s early, but that’s something of a surprise. Wroten is first, Colorado forward Spencer Dinwiddie is tied for third (19.0 points per game) and Washington State’s DaVonte Lacy is fifth. The former Curtis High star is averaging 18.5 ppg. Arizona freshman guard Nick Johnson has emerged as a leader and teammate Josiah Turner is playing better lately.
CORRECTED: 5:59 a.m.
