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


EUGENE, Ore. (AP) – Anthony Brown scored a career-high 24 points and the Cardinal held on to send No. 17 Oregon to its third straight loss, 82-80 yesterday. Brown didn’t miss until the second half. He made his first seven shots and 10 of 12 overall. Chasson Randle had 23 points for the Cardinal (10-5, 1-2 Pac-12), who beat their second ranked team this season, something they hadn’t accomplished since 2009.

SEATTLE (AP) – Washington coach Lorenzo Romar has seen this before from C.J. Wilcox. One 3-pointer starts to drop, then another and suddenly Wilcox is hitting everything. Wilcox set career highs with seven 3-pointers and 31 points, including 21 in the second half, and Washington ran away from No. 15 Colorado for a 71-54 victory.

PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) – Que Johnson had 14 points and went 10 of 13 from the free throw line to help Washington State beat Utah 49-46 yesterday. The Cougars (8-8, 1-3 Pac-12) came back from a 12 point deficit for their first Pac-12 win. Utah shot a season-low 29.5 percent (13 of 44) from the field.

SEATTLE (AP) – The Seattle Seahawks say they are aware of rookie fullback Spencer Ware being arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence. King County Jail records showed Ware being booked at just before 2 in the morning yesterday and released at 4:23 a.m. Ware, a sixth-round pick out of LSU, has not played for the Seahawks since Week 2.
