Arizona forward Marcus Williams shrugged off his contribution after scoring a career-high 27 points in the 10th-ranked Wildcats' 83-72 victory over visiting Oregon State last night. "I was able to get in the right spot at the right time, and my teammates were able to find me," Williams said. Chase Budinger added 16 points and 10 rebounds as the Wildcats (13-2, 4-1 Pac-10) bounced back from an overtime defeat at Washington State on Saturday. Arizona is 9-0 at McKale Center.

Shawn Robinson became the first Pittsburgh player to return a punt for a touchdown in the school's 22 bowl appearances as the 24th-ranked Panthers beat Oregon State 38-13 in the Insight Bowl at Bank One Ballpark in Phoenix last night. Brandon Miree rushed for 113 yards in 20 carries, including a 7-yard touchdown run, to help Pittsburgh to its first nine-win season in 20 years. The Panthers (9-4) broke a 10-10 tie with a pair of TDs in the third quarter. Tez Morris' interception set up the go-ahead touchdown on Rod Rutherford's 1-yard run, then Robinson broke a pair of tackles en route to his 66-yard punt return to make it 24-10 with 3:26 to go in the third quarter.

Dennis Erickson, who won two national titles at Miami but was fired after four disappointing seasons with the Seattle Seahawks, will be hired as the new coach at Oregon State today, the Corvallis Gazette-Times reported. School officials refused to confirm Erickson's hiring. The newspaper reported that Erickson has agreed to take over at Oregon State for Mike Riley, who last week was named the new coach of the San Diego Chargers. Erickson was fired one day after the Seahawks ended their season 8-8. In four years, he had a record of 31-33 and no playoff appearances.

Mike Riley got Oregon State headed back toward respectability, and now he'll try to do the same thing for the San Diego Chargers. Riley, 45, signed a guaranteed five-year contract yesterday, becoming the Chargers' fourth coach in four years. This is his first NFL job, and he inherits a team that hasn't had a winning record in three seasons. Riley was 8-14 in two seasons at Oregon State, which one of his predecessors called "a coach's graveyard. " The same might be said of the Chargers, who were 5-11 in 1998.

Coach Jim Boyle of St. Joseph's started the youngest lineup in the Hawks' basketball history last night, and it produced an 89-67 loss to Oregon State in the first round of the Far West Classic. The defending champion Beavers (5-3) rolled to a 14-2 lead in the first seven minutes at the Memorial Coliseum and were never headed in handing St. Joseph's its fifth straight loss after two season-opening victories. Eric Knox came off the bench for 17 of his game-high 25 points as Oregon State led by as many as 20 points in the first half and settled for a 44-30 advantage at the break.

Both teams employed spread offenses last night when Temple hosted Oregon State in a nonleague game at Franklin Field. The only one that was productive, however, belonged to the visitors. With Temple quarterback Mike McGann, a sophomore, obviously still trying to grasp what is a good throw and what is a bad one in his first year in the Owls' new system, Oregon State quarterback Derek Anderson made just enough plays to lead the Beavers to a 35-3 victory before a crowd of 20,162.

When Oregon State football coach Dennis Erickson was asked about the Beavers' having to take a 5 1/2-hour plane trip to reach Philadelphia for a game tonight against Temple at Franklin Field, he looked at the bright side. "It's a heck of a lot better than driving," said Erickson, who was to arrive last night with his team. Oregon State, a member of the Pacific Ten Conference, had previously only made one appearance in Philadelphia, on Dec. 15, 1962, when the Beavers defeated Villanova, 6-0, in the Liberty Bowl at Municipal Stadium.

THROUGH NO fault of his own, Isaac Seumalo is behind. An Eagles rookie offensive lineman, Seumalo is the victim of a ludicrous NFL rule that punishes players from the handful of colleges that still are on a quarter system. The rule - instituted in 1990 as a peace offering by the NFL to college coaches who were threatening to ban the league's scouts from its campuses for opening its doors to underclassmen - prohibits rookies from attending organized team activities and minicamps until their school has completed final exams.

THERE IS NO reason to get frustrated with the NCAA Tournament selection committee's bracket because it is an annual mystery. However, its members may have outdone themselves this year. Why did they flip regions for Xavier and Villanova when keeping them near home would have balanced the bracket and given both site advantages they earned with No. 2 seeds? Kansas was No. 1 on the 68-team seed list, so Xavier as No. 8 would have fit perfectly in the South region in Louisville. Villanova was No. 7 and seemed a perfect seed fit in the East at Wells Fargo Center for North Carolina, which was No. 2 overall.

Bill Harper, the longtime Phillies' scout best known for signing Hall of Famer Ryne Sandberg, died Thursday in his hometown of Corvallis, Ore. He was 89. Harper spent more than four decades with the Phillies dating to 1970. He became a full-time scout covering the Northwest in the late '70s. He continued to work as an independent scout even after his retirement following the 2000 baseball season. The Phillies honored Harper in September 2012 with the Dallas Green Award, presented annually to the scout who "best exemplifies the Phillies' standard for scouting while demonstrating the same loyalty, work ethic, dedication and passion as the award's namesake," according to the team.

MOBILE, Ala. - Chip Kelly watched intently from behind the end zone as his former college quarterback fired passes in his direction. Earlier, before practice, the Eagles coach met with the dual-threat prospect, a player he recruited to Oregon. Could they be reunited in the NFL? It's possible, but the ex-Oregon quarterback wasn't Marcus Mariota, the Heisman Trophy winner whom some Eagles fans are clamoring for despite the long odds Kelly faces if he wants to draft him. The Eagles have a much better chance of landing Bryan Bennett, who lost a competition with Mariota in 2012 before he transferred out of Oregon.

WHAT DO YOU give an Oregon football fan who has everything? Nike is banking that a Ducks jersey that doesn't sport either of the school's bright green or yellow colors will fly off the shelves. The sports apparel giant unveiled the new uniforms Oregon and Ohio State will wear in Monday night's national championship game and . . . well let's just say there were some surprises. The Ducks' biggest booster is Oregon alum - and Nike chairman - Phil Knight, who has provided the team with over 60 different uniform styles since the late 1990s.

OK, SO who among the playoff contenders are most likely to squander their opportunity? It happens almost every year. Somebody loses late to open things up for next up on the food chain. You don't always know the who part, just that, somewhere out there, dreams will go poof. With a selection committee now being asked to identify the four finalists for the inaugural tournament, it only adds to the probability. The lone certainty is that Alabama, Oregon and Florida State are in the pole positions.

LAKEWOOD, N.J. - It is hard enough to play professional baseball. It is even harder when you are constantly changing positions. Zach Green, who plays for the Class A Lakewood BlueClaws, is accustomed to adjusting, and often. He was a shortstop for his high school team in Carmichael, Calif., but knew he would have to switch positions in order to play pro. He passed on a scholarship offer to Oregon State to sign with the Phillies after they drafted him in the third round in 2012.
