Here is the latest Washington, Oregon and Alaska sports news from The Associated Press


SEATTLE (AP) – Marshawn Lynch had three touchdown runs and Seattle set a franchise record for points in a 58-0 win over Arizona on Sunday. Seattle kept firm grasp on the final NFC wild-card spot and kept alive slim chances of catching San Francisco in the NFC West race. The Seahawks also picked up their first division victory and assured coach Pete Carroll of his first eight-win season in three years with them. The 58-0 victory was the biggest shutout in Seattle’s history.

SEATTLE (AP) – Russell Wilson got the hook. He wasn’t complaining. On his way to some NFL history, Wilson was told to be an observer for the final 25 minutes of Seattle’s 58-0 rout of the inept Arizona Cardinals. Wilson said, “The game was a crazy game throughout.” Wilson became the first rookie quarterback to start and win his first six games at home since the 1970 merger.

PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) – Brock Motum scored 23 points and Mike Ladd had a season-high 19 points as Washington State beat Fresno State 59-50 yesterday. The Cougars led 48-47 with 4:43 to play. Motum made two layups and Ladd scored on another and Washington State was up 54-48. The final score matched Washington State’s largest lead.

MANKATO, Minn. (AP) – Minnesota State, Mankato goalie Stephon Williams dominated Alaska-Anchorage in consecutive weekend games. The Mavericks beat the Seawolves 3-0 Saturday night, and led MSUM to a 3-1 win over Alaska-Anchorage Friday night.
