Hassan Adams and Brandon Roy lived up to their billing Saturday: They were their teams' best players, in a taut, top-flight game that demanded nothing less. Adams scored a career-high 32 points -- including eight points and consecutive three-point baskets in the two overtimes -- to trump Roy's career-high-tying 35 as Arizona rallied to a 96-95 victory over No. 7 Washington in a Pacific 10 Conference game. The nation's longest homecourt winning streak ended at 32 games when Kirk Walters, displaced in the starting lineup by freshman Marcus Williams, made a free throw with 5.1 seconds left.

One of Coach Henry Bibby's many maxims is that his bench players are the most important members of his basketball team. The Trojans helped Bibby prove his point in last weekend's home split with Arizona and Arizona State. "I'm not wrong too much," Bibby said Monday after practice. "The bench makes a difference in a game. I think our bench [players] are as good as any starters that are out there, when they play and they have their heads in the game the way they did on Saturday night."
