Robert Upshaw missed a pair of free throws for Washington with 40.2 seconds remaining in OT and the Huskies failed to score a field goal in the extra 5 minutes.

BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) – Josh Hawkinson had 18 points and 13 rebounds, Jordan Railey scored 17 points and Washington State beat California 69-66 yesterday for its first Pac-12 road win in nearly two years. Ike Iroegbu added 12 points including four free throws over the final 36 seconds for the Cougars, who won despite missing nine of their final 12 shots.

LOS ANGELES (AP) – Kobe Bryant will skip the Los Angeles Lakers’ game in Portland today to rest. Coach Byron Scott made the announcement before the Lakers’ home game against Indiana last night.
