It’s an old-school, quick turnaround for the Huskies which has less than 48 hours to put Thursday’s big 80-76 win over Oregon behind them and move on to Saturday’s 2 p.m. contest against Oregon State.
Still, there’s still plenty of buzz about C.J. Wilcox’s fantastic 23-point performance, which included a clutch three-pointer with 44 seconds left.
In case you haven’t seen it, here’s the video highlights (above) from Fox Sports 1. And here’s a post-game interview with Wilcox, who talks about his big shot.
FRIDAY MORNING LINKS:
— Arizona raced out to a big lead and held on down the stretch to remain unbeaten with a 69-57 win over Colorado. Nick Johnson scored 18 points and Aaron Gordon added 12 for the Wildcats (19-0, 6-0 Pac-12), which built a 14-point lead in the opening six minutes. They tied the 1992-93 and 1997-98 teams for the longest winning streak in school history.
— The Buffaloes returned to McKale Center, the site of last year’s controversial finish. However, this time the suspense left the game early. Xavier Johnson scored a game-high 21 points and Josh Scott added 15 with 11 rebounds. CU fell to 15-5, 4-3.
— Tony Parker scored a career-high 22 points and UCLA used a big first-half run to cruise past Stanford 91-74.

Jordan Adams added 19 points, Kyle Anderson had 13 points, seven rebounds and 10 assists, and Normal Powell had 13 points.
