PAC-10 TEAMS THANKFUL FOR HOLIDAY CHARITY: In 21 games last week, 31 individuals were perfect from the free throw line. Most notable performances were an 11-for-11 outing by California’s Ashley Walker against Texas Tech; a 9-for-9 performance by Arizona’s Reiko Thomas at Middle Tennessee State; a 8-for-8 showing by UCLA’s Nina Earl against Cal State Northridge; and USC’s 6-for-6 performance in back-to-back games at Pepperdine and vs. UC Santa Barbara.

Last week, Pac-10 teams went to the line 404 times, making 273 attempts (67.8 percent). The Bruins drew a single-game high of 39 free throws against Cal State Northridge, making 25. Cal had 33 charity attempts in its win over Texas Tech, making 26,


PAC-10 IN THE RANKINGS: With the release of the Dec. 1 Associated Press top 25, both California and Stanford appear in the top five, with Cal coming in at No. 3 for the second-straight week and the Cardinal moving up to fourth with wins over two ranked opponents last week.

When the poll was released on Nov. 24, it was the first time two Pac-10 teams have been ranked in the top five in the same week since the final poll in 1989-90. That year, Stanford was No. 2 and Washington was No. 3.

Last week was the first time the Bears appeared in the AP’s and ESPN/USA Today Coaches’ top five in the history of the program. Stanford has been ranked in the top five 134 times in the AP rankings since the first year of the poll in 1976-77.
