  • Over the last 23 years, ARIZONA is 52-12 (.813) in the month of November ... With the win over Virginia, Arizona is now 20-3 in home openers under coach Lute Olson ... One statistic that hasn't been up to par for Arizona has been its free throw percentage, which stands at 60.6 percent (57-of-94). By comparison, the Wildcats have shot better than 70 percent from the line in each of the last eight seasons, including a Pac-10 record 78.6 percent as recent as the 2003-04 season ... ARIZONA STATE sophomore F Craig Austin scored a career-high 21 points in the season opener vs. Southern Utah, not bad considering he scored 17 points - all of last year. He scored 17 points in 17 games last season ... ASU is shooting 56-of-67 (.836) from the free throw line in its first two games ... Three players have already posted 20-point games for ASU (Austin, junior F Bryson Krueger and junior G Kevin Kruger). Last season, aside from the performances of Pac-10 Player of the Year Ike Diogu, four Sun Devils posted a total of seven 20-point games .... CALIFORNIA's Ben Braun picked up his 500th career victory with the Golden Bears' win over Long Beach State ... OREGON looks to start the season 5-0 for the first time since the 2002-03 season ... The Ducks have scored at least 80 points in each of their first four games, while holding their first four opponents below 65 points ... Sophomore F Maarty Leunen was named MVP of the season-opening Hispanic College Fund Classic after averaging 11.0 points and 9.7 rebounds. He now has 40 rebounds (10.0 rpg) in his first four games ... Moving from the football field to the basketball court - junior G Jordan Kent saw his first action on the hardwood in last week's win over Rice. He had a point, a rebound, and a steal in eight minutes ... OREGON STATE senior F Nick DeWitz, who posted OSU's second-best single-season block total last year with 52 rejections, has already swatted six shot attempts this season. With 58 career blocked shots, DeWitz needs just two more to crack the school's career top 10 list ... What a difference a year makes as OSU sophomore F Marcel Jones is shooting 15-of-25 (.600) from the field. Last season, he was 31-of-79 (.392) from the field ... STANFORD senior C Matt Haryasz, who missed the season-opener with a sprained ankle, made his season debut against San Francisco and responded with 18 points, 11 rebounds and four blocked shots. He posted the second double-double in as many games when he tallied 16 pints and 12 rebounds against Cal Poly. He now has 13 double-doubles for his career and 12 double-doubles in the last 17 games ... The next Cardinal victory will give Stanford coach Trent Johnson the 100th victory of his career ... UCLA sophomore G Arron Afflalo was named to the NIT Season Tip-Off All-Tournament team after averaging 16.0 points and 4.0 rebounds in a pair of games at Madison Square Garden last week. He shot 7-of-13 (.538) from three-point range ... Sophomore G/F Nick Young earned all-tournament honors at the Great Alaska Shootout. He shot 22-of-39 (.564) from the field to average 16.7 points and pulled down 6.7 rebounds per game. Young posted a career-high 25 points in USC's win over Eastern Washington ... At 6-0, WASHINGTON is off to its best start in 15 years. The Huskies boast the nation's longest homecourt winning streak of 28 consecutive victories at Bank of America Arena ... Senior F Jamaal Williams posted his first double-double as a Husky with 17 points/12 rebounds in just 22 minutes against Loyola Marymount ... WASHINGTON STATE newcomers have accounted for 47 percent of the scoring. Junior transfer F Ivory Clark leads all WSU players with 12.7 points per game. First-year Cougars are shooting 59 percent from the field led by true freshman C Aron Baynes at 73 percent.
