PULLMAN — Jahii Carson scored 25 points and Arizona State defeated Washington State 63-59 on Thursday night for its third straight victory.

Evan Gordon had 13 points and Carrick Felix had 11 points — all in the second half — and 11 rebounds for the Sun Devils (17-4, 6-2 Pac-12), who overcame 4-for-11 free-throw shooting and a nine-point Washington State first-half lead.

Royce Woolridge scored 16 points to lead the Cougars (11-10, 2-6). Mike Ladd had 14 points, and Brock Motum matched Felix with 11 points and 11 boards. Dexter Kernich-Drew scored 10 points for Washington State.

Mike Ladd missed a jumper with 45 seconds left that would have tied the score at 61. Carson sealed the victory with a layup with 12 seconds to go.

The Sun Devils are 6-2 in the conference for the first time since 1994, and are off to their best start since 1981, when ASU began 19-2.

Cal surges past

Oregon State

BERKELEY, Calif. — Richard Solomon's dunk with 17.6 seconds remaining capped a big run by California over the final 8 minutes, and the Golden Bears rallied from 12 points down in the second half to beat Oregon State 71-68 on Thursday night.

Allen Crabbe had 15 points and eight rebounds, while Justin Cobbs added 14 points and matched his season high of seven assists, to help fifth-year California coach Mike Montgomery to his 100th career victory at the school.

The Golden Bears (12-8, 4-4 Pac-12) trailed most of the second half and were down 59-53 before Crabbe and Cobbs combined to score 12 of Cal's final 18 points.

Roberto Nelson scored 25 points for Oregon State (11-10, 1-7). The Beavers had two chances to score after Solomon's basket but failed to get a shot off.
