Washington State ended up advancing to next round with a 66-59 win over Cal. Efe Abogidi was the leading scorer for the Cougars, pouring in 19 points on 7-of-17 shooting from the field.

The second game of Wednesday’s PAC-12 tournament featured a rivalry matchup between No. 5 Oregon and No. 12 Oregon State, as the Ducks held on for a 86-72 win over their rivals. Oregon guard Jacob Young had 23 points and Quincy Guerrier had 20 points and four rebounds as the Ducks advance to the quarterfinals on Thursday against No. 4 seed Colorado.
The Stanford Cardinal put together a monumental comeback, overcoming a 17-point deficit to stun the Arizona State Sun Devils 71-70 in a thriller to open the Pac-12 tournament. In a contest where Arizona State came in red hot, winning seven of its last eight outings, the Sun Devils were in control most of the game. Their 15 made three-pointers set a new Pac-12 record, but Stanford never threw in the towel and rode on the back of star forward Spencer Jones.
The 6-foot-7 versatile big man set a career high with 26 points, while adding 6 rebounds and an assist. James Keefe, the other Cardinal big man served as the perfect compliment, with 16 points and 11 boards including the game-winning shot that banked off the backboard and secured the Stanford victory.
