Canada's Dillon Brooks earns Pac-12 basketball honours for Oregon Ducks

The Arizona State Sun Devils led Wednesday afternoon's Pac-12 Tournament opener for almost all of the final 44 minutes of regulation, finally faltering when the Stanford Cardinal sent the game to overtime with a long jump shot on their final possession of the second half.

Oleka and ASU's other four starters - Tra Holder (21 points), Torian Graham (17 points), Shannon Evans II (16 points), Kodi Justice (15 points) - all scored in double figures as they combined for 96 points for the Sun Devils (15-17), who will face fifth-ranked and top seed OR (27-4) at noon PT/1 p.m. MT on Thursday in the first of four quarterfinal games. By beating Stanford in the first game of the Pac-12 tournament bracket, the Arizona State Sun Devils will have a second-round matchup with Oregon.

"Those five guys are as fit as any five players in the country", Hurley said. "The last three minutes we were stuck on 81". All of this serves as motivation for a player that thrives off this type of atmosphere, especially with so many pundits not giving the Bruins the credit they deserve. On Wednesday, ASU used a 3-point barrage in overtime and a big effort from Obinna Oleka to claim a 98-88 win over Stanford.

Still, Altman knows that this team understands what's on the line. As a player that hustles on both ends of the floor, he has led the Bruins through an epic season and one that has listed them as the #3 team in the nation, at least according to the AP Poll.

Meanwhile, Oregon is 6-1 ATS in their last seven Thursday games, and 14-4 ATS in their last 18 games overall.

Brooks earned first-team, all-conference honors for the second year in a row.

Travis had 15 points on 6-of-8 shooting from the field in the first half. Tre Holder added 21 points. They played well in overtime.

On the season, Arizona State basketball is averaging 79.3 points, 32.8 rebounds and 13.1 assists per game.

As the saying goes, one game at a time. What the Sun Devils can do to contain Brooks, who recorded 27 points against the Sun Devils, will be a deciding factor in ASU's chances of winning.

"When they're playing a very potent offensive team like that, it gets hard at times", Stanford coach Jerod Haase said. "Now, they're playing the passing lanes more, so I just take the openings I get and look to score". I think he pushed the lead back to five.

Yes, I said the Ducks have the cleanest resume, and they do. They've given me every reason to believe in them just the way we've won some dramatic games down the stretch.

"We will try to get our edge back and recover, get rested and ready", Hurley said.

ASU started the game on fire offensively as it hit 60 percent of its shots in the first 20 minutes.

One of the unlikely heroes of this game for Cal was 5th year senior shooting guard Stephen Domingo, who scored 10 points off the bench on 3-6 shooting from the field and 2-5 shooting from three-point range. The Sun Devils took a 50-42 lead into halftime. Torian Graham had 17, Shannon Evans had 16 and Justice contributed 15. "The next goal is to win the Pac-12 Tournament, just keep moving forward and go as far as possible in the NCAA Tournament".

ASU led 28-25 at half in the first meeting vs. Oregon, losing 71-70 when Brooks scored the final 12 points for Oregon.

The game began with a lot of fast-paced offense, as the teams traded leads while moving and scoring the ball quickly and effectively.
