Morning links: Defense goes awry for UW again

As Nigel Williams-Goss said following Saturday’s 79-67 defeat at Stanford, it’s “back to the drawing board” for Washington. Once again, the Huskies will have to re-examine how they’re playing defense after allowing the Cardinal to shoot 54.2 percent from the field and sending them to the free throw line 34 times.

Here’s the video highlights from the Pac-12 Networks and a look at the game in pictures from the Associated Press.

And here’s the game stories in the Mercury News, San Francisco Chronicle and Associated Press.

SUNDAY MORNING LINKS:

Jordan Loveridge scored 17 points and grabbed nine rebounds to lead Utah to a 74-69 victory over No. 25 UCLA. It was the the Utes (14-4, 3-3) first win over the Bruins since the 1983 NCAA tournament. There’s a basketball revival going on in Salt Lake City.

Kyle Anderson had 28 points, seven rebounds and seven assists for UCLA, and Zach LaVine added 15 off the bench for the Bruins. UCLA (14-4, 3-2) stormed back from a 17-point deficit to get within two in the final minute, but could not overcome Anderson’s costly turnover.

— No. 21 Colorado is going to fall from the top 25 in the polls Monday, but the Buffaloes got their first win without injured guard Spencer Dinwiddie. Josh Scott scored 20 points and Askia Booker had 13 as the Buffs took USC to the woodshed in an 83-62 beating. CU improved to 15-4, 4-2.

Omar Oraby and J.T. Terrell both had 16 points to lead the Trojans (9-9, 0-5), who are the only Pac-12 team without a conference win.

Justin Cobbs had 16 points, seven assists and five rebounds for California, which remained unbeaten in Pac-12 play with a 76-51 win over Washington State on Saturday. Richard Solomon had 12 points and nine rebounds and Tyrone Wallace added 13 points for the Golden Bears (14-4, 5-0).

D.J. Shelton scored 17 points with 11 rebounds and Que Johnson had 18 points for Washington State, which played its fourth straight game without leading scorer DaVonte Lacy. For the third time in Pac-12 play, the Cougars (8-10, 1-5) fared well in the first half, but fell apart after the break.
