    PAC-10 WRAPS UP THE FIRST HALF OF CONFERENCE PLAY: The first half of Pac-10 play wraps up this weekend with a full slate of games, including the Washington schools clashing on Friday, Jan. 29 on Fox Sports Net Northwest. California hosts Arizona State on national television on Saturday, Jan. 30 on Fox Sports Net.

    It has been an exciting season so far, with five teams clogging up the middle of the standings, each posting three or four wins so far. The Arizona schools will look to challenge #2-ranked Stanford and its unbeaten league record, while the LA schools both look to protect their respective win streaks hosting the Oregon schools, who are both looking to snap losing streaks.

    EXCITING BASKETBALL: It has been a tight race since the Pac-10 season began, with five teams clogging up the middle, each with three or four wins, so far. If you look even closer, the competition has been even tighter. Of the 36 league games played so far, 25 have been decided by 10 points or less.

    WHAT A GAME!: It was expected to be a good matchup on Jan. 16 as Oregon headed to Arizona. The senior-laden Ducks are having one of their best season's in recent memory and leads the nation in scoring, while the young Wildcats have shown improvement from last year and have a pair of young impact players. It turned out to be a record-breaking afternoon with the Wildcats coming out on top, 119-112. Arizona set the Pac-10 record for points scored in a league game and Oregon's points were the most by a losing team in a Conference game. With a combined 231 points, it was the highest-scoring game in Pac-10 women's basketball history, besting the previous mark which was set in 1989 by 10.

    Three players scored in the 30s, led by FR G Davellyn Whyte's 39 to set the single-game Arizona scoring record. Oregon's JR F Nicole Canepa netted 38 in the losing effort, tying Oregon's single-game record and the most ever scored by a Duck in a Pac-10 game. With Arizona's JR F Ify Ibekwe contributing 32 points, it was the first time in the program's history two players had scored 30+ points.
