Plenty of buzz this morning in Los Angeles on the thrilling finish last night at new Pauley Pavilion. Washington lost 59-57 after UCLA’s Larry Drew II drained a last-second, game-winning shot that made ESPN’s top 10 list. It also led the sports roundup on several local newscast.

Here’s a nice write-up from Los Angeles Times columnist Bill Plaschke and game stories in the Orange County Register, LA Times, LA Daily News, Associated Press, Kitsap Sun and GoHuskies.com.

And here’s a collection of pics from the AP and the box score.

AROUND THE PAC-12:

— Arizona is at the top of the conference standings.

— Up next for Washington is USC. The Trojans improved to 10-13 and 5-5 after a 72-68 victory over Washington State.

— WSU has lost five of the past six games and fell to 11-12 and 2-8. The Cougars are tied for last place in the Pac-12. Coach Ken Bone told the Spokesman-Review: “I see the guys keep trying to do the right things – working hard, right attitude. I guess that’s just what a 2-8 team looks like that’s trying hard but not winning.”

Andre Roberson scored a putback capping a closing 8-0 run that gave Colorado a 48-47 win at No. 19 Oregon. He was the only CU player to score in double figures and also had 13 rebounds for Buffaloes (15-7, 5-5).

— Since climbing into the top 10 in the polls, No. 19 Oregon lost for the third straight game. The Ducks (18-5, 7-3) are 1-3 without freshman point guard Dominic Artis who is out with a foot injury.

Evan Gordon scored 23 points and backup center Ruslan Pateev had 12 points and eight rebounds while Arizona State held on to beat California 66-62. Jahii Carson added 12 points, four steals and three assists to offset five turnovers for the Sun Devils (18-5, 7-3).

— Cal (13-9, 5-5) trailed the entire game and was down by as many a s 15 points with 9:30 left before closing to within two with 22 seconds left. But Allen Crabbecommitted a turnover on the Golden Bears’ next possession – his second TO in the final 41 seconds. He told the San Francisco Chronicle: “Just did not make the plays I needed to make for my team. Basically I panicked when I got in the corner and had to get the ball out.”

— Arizona likes Mark Lyons maturation as a point guard.

— Utah likes Jarred Dubois maturation as a scoring threat.
