Here is the latest Washington, Oregon and Alaska sports news from The Associated Press
STANFORD, Calif. (AP) – Chasson Randle scored 17 points, Josh Huestis had 14 points and 13 rebounds, and Stanford stunned Oregon on the big stage again by routing the 10th-ranked Ducks 76-52. More than two months after Stanford’s football team handed Oregon its only loss of the season, the Cardinal dominated the Ducks from the start for the program’s first win over a top 10 team in nearly five years. Carlos Emory had 12 points and Arsalan Kazemi had six points and nine boards for Oregon.
SEATTLE (AP) – Washington picked the wrong time to go into a slide. Losing three straight at any point of the Pac-12 Conference season is concerning. This skid by the Huskies could be even more damaging because of the schedule that lies ahead, beginning tonight when they host No. 8 Arizona. But the first two setbacks of the Huskies’ three-game losing streak came against Utah and Oregon State, neither of which had a conference victory before beating Washington.
NEW YORK (AP) – The NBA has acknowledged a pair of costly incorrect calls in the last seconds of recent games. In one, officials say a charging foul called against Dallas guard O.J. Mayo on Tuesday should’ve been a block on Portland’s Ronnie Price, who did not get his body directly in Mayo’s path prior to him starting his upward shooting motion. Mayo should’ve been given two free throws with 1.5 seconds left and the score tied. Instead, Portland got the ball and LaMarcus Aldridge made the winning shot.
SEATTLE (AP) – Shawn Kelley and the Seattle Mariners have agreed to a $935,000, one-year contract that avoids salary arbitration. The team announced the deal yesterday. Kelley gets a raise from $610,000 last season, when the right-handed reliever went 2-4 with a 3.25 ERA in 47 appearances. He had asked for $1.2 million this year and was offered $750,000 by the Mariners. The 28-year-old Kelley is 10-9 with a 3.52 ERA in four major league seasons. He was the last Mariner eligible for arbitration.
RENTON, Wash. (AP) – Seattle Seahawks linebacker Leroy Hill has been arrested after police say he assaulted his girlfriend and kept her in his home against her will. According to a release from the Issaquah Police Department yesterday morning, Hill was arrested on investigation of unlawful imprisonment-domestic violence and third-degree assault-domestic violence. Issaquah police said Hill would be booked into the King County Jail. A Seahawks spokesman says the team is aware of the situation.
