College basketball roundup: Cal, Stanford men triumph
Freshman Tyrell Terry’s day started with a loss and then got significantly better.
Terry, a Minnesota Vikings fan, scored a season-high 22 points and had six rebounds in helping host Stanford win for the seventh time in eight games, an 88-62 victory over Washington State on Saturday.
“I kept trying to sneak updates during the game and when I heard they lost, it was kind of a bummer,” Terry said. “It’s all right though, I’d rather have a win here.”
The Vikings lost 27-10 to the 49ers, just down the road in Santa Clara.
Carlos da Silva scored all 15 of his points in the first half for the Cardinal (14-2, 3-0 Pac-12), who beat the Cougars a seventh straight time.
Isaac White added 11 points, his second double-figure game of the season. Bryce Wills had 10.
Isaac Bonton reached double figures in scoring for the sixth consecutive game, netting 15 points for the Cougars (10-7, 1-3), who have lost three of four to open conference play since a six-game nonconference winning streak.
Daron Henson, who hadn’t played since a two-minute appearance in the Cougars’ season-opening win over Seattle, was 4-of-6 from 3-point range and scored 12 points.
CAL 61, WASHINGTON STATE 58, OT
Matt Bradley banked in a 3-pointer with six seconds remaining in overtime, lifting the host Bears over the Huskies.
Bradley finished with 17 points and five rebounds to help the Golden Bears (8-8, 2-1 Pac-12) to their second straight win after a four-game losing streak. Grant Anticevich added 13 points and seven rebounds, and Paris Austin scored 10.
Jaden McDaniels had 12 points and 11 rebounds for Washington. The Huskies (11-6, 1-3) rallied from 10 down in the final 12 minutes of the second half but made only one basket in overtime.
Bradley scored on a left-handed layup with 1:35 left in overtime to give Cal a two-point lead. The two teams traded misses before Nahziah Carter made two of three free throws that made it 58-all with 34.2 seconds left after being fouled taking a 3-pointer by Anticevich.
Bradley got the ball and dribbled the clock down before taking the game-winning shot above the arc. The ball banked in as the crowd at Haas Pavilion erupted.
Both teams missed a shot to win at the end of regulation.
