  • ARIZONA (12-6, 5-3)... The 60 points scored in Saturday's game were the fewest the Wildcats have scored in a home Conference win since Jan. 19, 1985, when Arizona beat UCLA, 53-52. That's a span of 191 Pac-10 home games ... With a pair of roster losses this week, Arizona brought freshman F Fendi Onobun out of redshirt status. Onobun made his debut after sitting out the first 16 games on Jan. 19 vs. Stanford. In a combined 23 minutes in the two games, Onobun scored 12 total points and grabbed three rebounds. He connected on 6-of-8 field goal attempts ... Arizona used the trio of junior Kirk Walters, senior Isaiah Fox and freshman Mohamed Tangara at center in the last two games. They combined for 21 points on 8-of-19 shooting, 15 rebounds and a pair of steals in 81 total minutes. For the season, those three combine to average 8.9 points and 6.3 rebounds, while 46.9 percent (53-of-113) from the field.

  • ARIZONA STATE (7-10, 1-7)... Freshman F Sylvester Seay had a productive weekend. His efforts against California, 13 points on 5-of-7 shooting, including 3-of-5 from three-point range, and four rebounds in 22 minutes earned him his first start of his ASU career against Stanford. He responded with eight points and seven rebounds in 18 minutes. For the weekend, he averaged 10.5 points and 5.5 rebounds. He entered last week's action averaging 2.2 points and 1.3 rebounds ... Freshman F Jeff Pendergraph scored 14 points on 7-of-8 shooting and added two blocked shots in the first 10 minutes against Stanford before spraining his ankle and missing the rest of the game. He should be available to play this week ... Three of ASU's four home losses in Pac-10 play have been by a total of eight points.

  • CALIFORNIA (10-6, 4-3)... Sophomore F Leon Powe posted a pair of double-doubles against the Arizona schools last week, collecting 20 points/10 rebounds vs. Arizona State and 23 points/13 rebounds vs. Arizona ... Hitting just 66.7 percent of his free throw attempts entering last week's play, Powe responded with a 19-of-25 (.760) effort from the charity stripe ... After scoring one basket in four Pac-10 games, freshman F Theo Robertson averaged 10.5 points in Cal's recent roadtrip, scoring 10 points at Arizona State and 11 points at Arizona ... Taking care of the ball - Cal leads the Pac-10 with the fewest turnovers, averaging 12.8 per game.

  • OREGON (10-9, 4-3)... Junior F Jordan Kent posted his first double-double of the season with 13 points and 12 rebounds in the 52-50 victory at Washington State. The three-sport athlete has had his share of success against the Cougars in Pullman this year. He scored on a 68-yard touchdown pass to help the Ducks defeat WSU 34-31 on Nov. 12 at Martin Stadium. Unfortunately, the 2006 Pac-10 Track and Field Championships will not be held in Pullman ... The Ducks have had recent success at home on Mac Court against the Los Angeles schools. They've won three of the last four against UCLA and the last four against USC.

  • OREGON STATE (10-8, 3-4)... Senior G Lamar Hurd missed both games last week with a groin strain suffered during OSU's game with Arizona State on Jan. 14. His status is doubtful for this week's games with USC and UCLA ... Junior C Kyle Jeffers posted a career-high five blocked shots against Washington. The Beavers lead the Pac-10 in blocked shots, averaging 4.67 blocks per game ... After going winless on the road in league play last year, the Beavers have won two league road games for the first time since the 2003 season.

  • STANFORD (8-7, 4-3)... Stanford is riding a six-game winning streak in Maples Pavilion. The Cardinal have won the last 12 meetings against Washington in Maples Pavilion ... Senior F/C Matt Haryasz picked up the 100th blocked shot of his career in Tempe. He's one of only four Cardinal players all-time to post 100 blocked shots ... Haryasz is also having success at the free thow line. He's hit 24 of his last 25 attempts, and 31 of his last 33 attempts. He's raised his average from .745 to .815 over the last five games.

  • UCLA (15-4, 5-2)... Sophomore G Jordan Farmar has led the Bruins in scoring the last two games with 22 points vs. West Virginia and 15 vs. USC. The Pac-10 leader in assists, he has led the Bruins in assists 14 of 19 games, including the last seven games and nine of the last 10 ... Freshman F Luc Richard Mbah a Moute has led the Bruins in rebounds in 18 of 19 games this season. He has five double-doubles this season, and a total of seven games in double digit rebounds ... Senior C Ryan Hollins has come back strong from his groin injury (he missed six games, including UCLA's first five Pac-10 contests). Against West Virginia, he had 11 points and eight rebounds in 30 minutes (all season-bests) and vs. USC, nine points and three rebounds in 21 minutes ... Senior G Cedric Bozeman, who has missed the last eight games with a left shoulder injury (cartilage), last week was cleared to begin shooting and dribbling (noncontact drills) in hopes of soon returning to the Bruin lineup.

  • USC (12-6, 3-4)... Senior G Dwayne Shackleford scored a team-high 12 points in the loss at UCLA. It was the first time this season that a player other than Nick Young, Gabe Pruitt or Lodrick Stewart has led the Trojans in scoring ... Junior C Abdoulaye N'Diaye picked up a pair of blocked shots against UCLA, giving him a team-leading 30 blocks for the season. USC has posted 71 blocked shots this season, while it had 76 for all of last season ... The Trojans are looking for their first road sweep since the 2002 season, and the first sweep on the road in Oregon since 1997.

  • WASHINGTON (16-2, 5-2)... While senior G Brandon Roy leads the Pac-10 in scoring in league games only (22.4 ppg), it's been his ballhandling skills that have been impressive in recent games. Over the last three games, Roy has 13 assists and just one turnover in 101 minutes ... Freshman G Justin Dentmon is atop the Pac-10 rankings for assists in league games only, averaging 5.57 per Pac-10 contest. He has 86 assists for the year and should challenge the UW freshman record of 103 set by Eldridge Recasner in 1987 ... The Huskies are looking for their first road sweep of the Bay Area teams since the 1985 season. A sweep would give the Huskies a 4-0 mark in league road games for the first time since the 1953 season.

  • WASHINGTON STATE (9-7, 2-5)... Washington State has used 13 different starting line-ups in 16 games this season. The Cougars have used five different starting line-ups in the last five games, since sophomore G Derrick Low broke his right foot in practice, Jan. 3 ... Ivory Clark posted three blocks against Oregon State. It was the third time this season that he's rejected three shots in a game ... WSU has recorded seven or more blocks in a game seven times this season. The Cougars rank second in the league with 4.63 blocks per game (74 total blocks). WSU had 85 blocks all of last season ... The Cougars knocked off Stanford last year in Maples Pavilion, snapping an eight-game losing streak to the Cardinal at Stanford.
