Nigel Williams-Goss’ 32 points Saturday ties California’s Jordan Matthews and Oregon State’s Devon Collier for the sixth highest scoring game this season by a Pac-12 player.

Washington needed a big game from the touted freshman to race past Oregon State for an 87-81 victory that moves the Huskies into fourth place in the conference standings.

Here’s a look at the video highlights from the Pac-12 Networks and an on-court interview with Williams-Goss, who set the UW freshman scoring record for points in a game.

It was the type of performance that had folks talking and tweeting.

Here’s the game stories in the Associated Press, Oregonian, Kitsap Sun, UW Daily and GoHuskies.com.

And here’s a photo gallery from Times photographer Lindsey Wasson.

SUNDAY MORNING LINKS:

— Utah has a puncher’s chance at knocking out No. 1 Arizona.

— The Utes have everything a team needs to beat the Wildcats. They have a big front line, two dynamic scorers in Delon Wright and Jordan Loveridge.

Nice story in the Los Angeles Times on California’s Justin Cobbs and Richard Solomon who just might be the Golden Bears’ Yin-Yang Twins.

— USC upset Cal on Thursday and the Trojans hope to keep the momentum going today against Stanford.

— Two teams who desperately need a win collide in Pullman today. Washington State has lost six of the last seven games while Oregon is riding a five-game losing streak.

— Arizona State coach Herb Sendek tinkered with the lineup, benching Jonathan Gilling and promoting Eric Jacobsen. The moves along with Jahii Carson’s 18 points helped ASU pummel Colorado 72-51. The Sun Devils improved to 15-5 and 4-3 Pac-12.

— It felt like Colorado hit rock bottom at Wells Fargo Arena where it scored a season-low 51 points. The Buffaloes (15-6, 4-4) are 1-4 without star guard Spencer Dinwiddie, who is out for the season.

— Former Washington star Terrence Ross tied Vince Carter’s Toronto Raptors’ scoring record with 51 points in a losing effort against the Los Angeles Clippers.

Mark McLaughlin, who transferred from Washington to Central Washington, has scored 83 points in the past two games. He had 40 points Saturday against Simon Fraser and 43 on Thursday against Western Washington. He leads Division II players with a 28.3 scoring average.
