More potential trouble now Arizona playing the game on the road where they've won just three of eight this year. Washington State fourteen and eight overall nine and three at home. I would go to the great northwest cats with a quick start Nic Wise hit the jumper from the corner and then on the next possession. Video game -- -- more and nothing 73. Years of lead by any. Washington State they'll come back Mickey wards of how far you have support from then on the other any -- the basket and the crowd. I just before half and late tops in the budget cutting rob motive for the -- from Wednesday to six point lead into the break. Go to the second half -- drive me dead in the left to go. The seven nothing run to start the half -- Arizona sticking around commitment wise given the transition through eight wildcats. Good five. His dad was as close as they've yet to be excellent -- still getting his shot blocked with the stick to wait it gets the (%expletive) watching. Update you at that point the blue. In 76. -- Elsewhere in the pac ten USC hosting Stanford first half -- charity -- Nicholas who should pitch he throws it down. USC jumped out to a -- to lead. Bad back in the cardinal takes a lame weak field he's hit a three pointer from the top of the we all. Fed up the Steelers fields again slamming it home this time in -- in the first half trojans are led by one of the break. Second -- Jared -- man spotting deals for another jam Stanford takes the lead fields into the game high 27. Less than thirty seconds ago. Cardinal up 4948. USC -- on the power perseverance don't. -- of it finally gets put back to go down. USC at home a winner over Stanford. 5440.

Scottie Reynolds and Corey Fisher each had 24 work in a losing effort for the wildcats. In the ACC number ten Duke goes on the road and hangs on for a 6663. Victory over Boston College. John Shire and Nolan Smith scored 21 points apiece that led the Blue Devils -- -- Dow drops seven. For the last ten. Are right it is -- time addition good we are joined via a guy by foxsports.com. Senior hoops writer Jeff Goodman Jeff good to be with yeah. You're at the height of course for the Blue Devils win over BC every of course winning on the road but. Really does coach K here have reason be concerned after a very narrow victory over. -- what's been considered a mediocre BC team. You know maybe a little bit like you said -- road wins are off to come by especially in the ACC earlier in the season. Hi Duke didn't play great but they weren't happy to get out of there -- to win. Coupled with the that resounding victory against Georgia Tech. Earlier in the week. Bloop double that looked pretty good -- you know they've they've really got to get Nolan met. John Shire and how similar on the same page the run and a lot more motion. To get everybody involved right now ravages of big hurry. And I think cal signal will get on track he's got Paris injuries battling right now once he gets gonna Pete does. I think -- is good it's just about any team in the country. Maybe not named Kansas or Kentucky or certain. It's well lot of talent there it is now only early February. Other news Arizona plays itself on probation now for two seasons for violations under former coach Lute Olson. Tell me what can I have what's going on in two up. Well based. What happened here wars Lute Olson. -- Put out a letter basically try to raise some money for an eighty you tournament. On campus which is against NCAA violations. Arizona does an investigation. Obvious self imposed sanctions -- really aren't a big deal. Obvious lose a scholarship for years -- -- days on the road for their coaches recruiting official visit. Nothing big like USC putting themselves some pro season band. This year. I think -- and so probably -- -- self imposed sanctions. And not really doesn't Beck Sean Miller all that much you know everybody -- ball. Really -- all and his former Al are all gone so I don't think they're gonna take much Mora hit it Eddie then they give themselves. Yeah good point there glad I'm talking out wanna ask you about this because you reported on Friday. That -- sort international head coach Isiah Thomas is now leading candidate to take over the coach to general manager and president. The LA Clippers -- -- say his days in Miami numbered now. Well first of all I did -- candidate Al leading candidate ready to actually air power hop. No I mean I don't know -- gets this job but I certainly think. Even if he's not in the mix for the London house leaders and we don't know what their point. I think he will be in the mix for that appalled -- remember he is a Chicago native. DePaul guard Jerry Wainwright. Last month. And I think keying Chris flowered from southern Illinois will be an Angel here a lot about. One you know season ends and in DePaul really ramps up their search for a new coach. In them out well number twelve BYU falls UNLV 887 before the final there. -- Willis with a career high 33 points. That led the running rebels that Bulls UNLV now -- -- -- for the conference lead with BYU. Jim -- for -- another solid all around game. He finished with 21 point seven rebounds and -- as the Cougars. And we have please be joined now by Dave Rose head coach of the BYU Cougars and Dave tough loss for you guys on Saturday. Let's not the guy that kind of pick up cult following around the country. -- for debt oh great name great game. -- west player of the week in terms of pure skill one knows he won the most gifted players that you've ever coached. -- you'd Perez really really improve and I think didn't. He's got a special talent. When you ride like oh yeah he's just really kind of found themselves from. And he fits well with this team but. You know right now he's playing with a lot of -- do a lot this year you know. You know put he is more than he loves to play and there will be ready Valentin. It ought to ask a lot of buzz this week about the NCAA tournament possibly Manning had 96 team. What are your thoughts on that. Well I feel that. You know little bit more teams that they can look at the end -- a year ago -- There's always a handful sometimes -- -- sometimes three -- local teams that. It was a -- haven't seen it didn't. -- figure out a way to expand that I think you'd be good for everybody. It's such. You know. A great experience for these players. An opportunity to. Go through that -- I would a lot of times where. In the it is in the lead to three seniors playing on a team that. Need to win one more game get left out and it'll still be that 96 down the road but it should give a lot more players. An opportunity to experience something that's really special card game. -- bit of BYU got -- long time outs in 1990 evident fact but seemed like the team really found -- that's when he took over as head coach. Telling what's been the key to your success in Provo. Why I think that. You know the most important thing is. If you play and get good players than they come here and -- Are committed to get better than committed to. Fifteen yeah they're yeah committed. -- league and I think with this group. Has been good but I do believe that we just -- good players and that is good staff has anybody could have and country. Guys that are. You know under that there. Extremely. Dislike the play when they're committed to. I -- good things happen in this program. The best. -- -- believes. Excuse Cingular -- coaches -- -- players and then let him do his thing. Coach your story has been -- inspiring to so many for those who don't know you were diagnosed with pancreatic cancer last June but. You beat a very deadly form of the disease -- it would -- that that -- had on your life and your outlook on coaching. Well. Apparently my outlook on coaching and hasn't really changed much. I'm not about my routine that is pretty similar as far as. How we approach -- practice -- records or games. But you know my my thought process towards all of -- Is way different as far as what I appreciate every day every their field well every day that. In -- -- position to do what I Lugo to do. It didn't get an opportunity to practice for the art guys who do we give opportunities to play games and compete. And -- that is something that. I don't really know you can explain unless you've really been through what. It's hard to have a bad day have you been an experience like that because. You know -- just appreciate it between that didn't you're. And able to do I still think. Very. The people who were in the hospital twelve days with me. That probably a lot of them were still in the house or a lot of them are still fighting. Not a disease and brought. In on one fortunate -- to actually feels better statistical factor alone and. All right Dave Rose head coach at BYU thank you so much for joining us and of course good luck for the rest of the season.

She was nervous it was a little music and how's it. -- -- about right my first -- I can't wait. I tried once. Got blocked. And you know what. That leads right into DH and this one comes from Saturday's game between Minnesota and Penn State. Less than thirty seconds ago Penn State's Taylor battled drive of the move with Ralph Sampson in the third. They're -- to reject battle and seconds later battled side tries love again and again. Stand sit right there is a lot of away. Take you gotta love Sampson defended the move with the authority that golfers still on the way. And much more so on the way we -- Maryland Coach Gary Williams plus Jeff Goodman reveals his top five teams in the nation. First a short break. Lose and it. There's a place all religions live. -- -- -- Only on fox. And welcome back to hoops hysteria brought to you by H&R block and get it right. Barrett the bracket with the coming of the best plays of the week in college basketball but for -- -- check in with one of the ACC's top coaches. Gary Williams led Maryland to the 2002 national title we are pleased now to welcome the Terrapins head coach. Coach first question seems -- he's got up for grabs more so this year. That it has been in the past now you guys lost a close what do Wake Forest on Friday. How really are your hopes for a conference championship -- here. It's it's for everybody I think everybody there's probably 78 teams in -- Looking at it to have a chance when the regular season championship and of course the ACC tournament look at it it's gonna be nuts because. At a party looks like they're beat up on everybody so that was just continued that week so it's one of those years you know -- -- little different this year and that we usually have a couple teams ranked in the top spot in the country and it's it's not there right now but. What's gonna happen at -- makes it to the NCAA is going to. Be a very good basketball team because every night out they're going to be playing somebody pretty good. And you know there's there's there's no easy wins for anybody in the league this year so I usually talk -- -- and security for the instantly torn and if you make. Now what I ask you about what are your guys grave is Vasquez and undoubtedly a special player how -- -- you when he decided to come back to school for this year. Well I think he made it good decision that's why I was pleased he actually score a fourteen to buy that same time. He wasn't guaranteed to a first round Turkey might have been picked in the first round victories and guaranteeing of course there's no guaranteed money usually in the second round so that's motivated for intelligent -- post. Or somebody -- last year coming out especially RTC's suitors searchers haven't really could gorgeous morning to draft and this year there is a little better situation for -- Franken has. We continue to play well that that certainly would hope corners so opportunity address. Another guy how important the development of freshman big man Jordan Williams your team's overall success. Always been really working hard I have to give them credit UW recruit guys you think you know moment. But sometimes you don't wanna work one wants ticket to college pitcher and spending opposite of that these were for your heart. He's been in here -- watching -- before practice. He just works to get better and you know she has some things used to work -- -- on one of these guys thinks he's got a game already and he's going to work and by doing it -- if you can keep that attitude he can be one of the best big men and I've coached here and 21 years so. Hopefully it'll continue that work ethic. You've been coaching for a long time now since 1978 in fact over the years what is changed the most in college basketball. I think he's the decisive according shrunk because of players have gotten bigger and -- that side's not much isn't quite split in bulk. -- greater athletic ability structures they've gotten stronger to they've gotten quicker and so but I think the most difficult thing now is called a college basketball game because they're -- there's contact and it replaced Sadat and referees have to make decisions based on doesn't affect the play. And horses to defense convention offense can advantage and so it's it's become a very difficult game to officiate and and to play in in other words it's not good enough just to be able to Kamal also screen and get open and make a jump shot now -- -- history you're going to bumps. And you have to take -- kittens albeit to catch the ball and make the shots so. I think that's that's the biggest change. I Coach Gary Williams thanks a -- we appreciate the time and now the moment you've all been waiting for. I think Jeff Goodman reveals his top five teams of the week. All right at number five this week I have -- Purdue boilermakers. And you know. Right now Robby humble team in each one more and they've obviously been incorporated Lewis Jackson are starting point guard in the mix up -- Purdue. Are solid number five pick right now. Number four Villanova. I know they lose this week but it was at Georgetown another top ten team. Tough Big East road game. All of -- the wildcats. The number four spot right now number three Kentucky. I'm John cal Terry's team gets a literal miss out homer earlier in the week and not being gambled well one spot right now. Number two. And number two I have last week the Syracuse Orangemen. Are Jim -- hi I'm -- -- Wesley Johnson. Really playing well early this season and not catch a lot of people by surprise to me the biggest surprise for Syracuse has been a point guard play. Freshman Brandon Trish and your Jardine have been terrific thus far and the number one team in the country. For the second straight week but Kansas. But right now you got Bill -- playing probably as well as anybody even though they didn't play our real stiff competition this past week. Are right Jeff thanks a lot and has been another great week for college basketball fans if you miss any thing. Don't worry we got you covered let's take you back and check out some of the best plays of the week. Ratchet down. But.
