Bye, bye Stanford; Isaiah Thomas’ big night

In his second consecutive NBA start, Sacramento Kings rookie Isaiah Thomas nearly captured a triple double.
The former Washington star finished with 23 points, 11 assists and eight rebounds in 43 minutes of a 93-92 loss at Cleveland. He converted 8 of 16 field goals, including three three-pointers and had a block and two turnovers.
Meanwhile E.J.Singler scored 10 of Oregon’s final 12 points and the Ducks beat Stanford 68-64 to pull into a fourth-place tie with Arizona in the Pac-12 standings. If the season were to end today, Oregon would get the No. 4 seed in the conference tournament because it beat Arizona in the regular season.
— Stanford fell to seventh place in conference and was eliminated from the regular-season title chase. The Cardinal has little chance of finishing in the top four in the regular season to earn a bye into the quarterfinals of the Pac-12 tournament.
— It will be interesting to see who gets the Pac-12 Player of the Week award Monday. Two likely candidates include: Washington’s Terrence Ross (25 points/5 rebounds/5 steals and 18 pts/5 reb) and California’s Justin Cobbs (28 pts/8 assists/4 stl and 10 pts/13 ast).
Here’s a look at the teams still contending for a conference championship and the games remaining. Everyone else is eliminated from the title race.
California …………….. 12-3 (22-6) ….. Utah, Colorado and Stanford
Washington …………. 12-3 (19-8) ….. Washington State, USC and UCLA
Colorado ……………… 10-4 (18-8) …..Stanford, California, Oregon and Oregon State
Oregon ………………… 10-5 (19-8) ….. Oregon State, Colorado and Utah
Arizona ……………….. 10-5 (19-9) ….. USC, UCLA, Arizona State
UCLA …………………… 8-6 (15-12) ….. Arizona State, Arizona, Washington State and Washington
