Already an All-American sprinter and part-time starter on Oregon's basketball team, Jordan Kent felt the lure of a third calling far from the heat of competition. He was in the school's athletic department offices last July when he had a chance encounter with wide receiver coach Dan Ferrigno, a man he recognized only as one of the Ducks' assistant football coaches.

Alexis Serna kicked a 40-yard field goal with 1:12 left, Ben Siegert blocked Oregon's potential game-winning kick less than a minute later, and the Beavers held off the Ducks, 30-28, Friday in the 110th edition of the Civil War. Oregon's Matt Evensen attempted a 44-yard field goal with 20 seconds left, but Siegert knocked it down and the home team won the in-state rivalry for the 10th consecutive season.

Short on bodies, Oregon continued to make up for its lack of manpower with hustle and heart. The seventh-seeded Ducks shrugged off the absence of their second- and fourth-leading scorers Friday night at Staples Center to extend third-seeded California into double overtime before finally coming up short, 91-87, in a Pacific 10 Conference tournament semifinal.

Will Conroy scored 17 points, including a three-point basket that sent the game into overtime, and No. 11 Washington rallied to defeat Oregon, 95-88, on Thursday night at Eugene, Ore. Nate Robinson had 24 points for Washington, which has won four in a row since a loss at then-No. 11 Arizona. The Huskies, 20-3 overall and 10-2 in the Pacific 10 Conference, also snapped a three-game losing streak at McArthur Court.

Tre Simmons matched a career high with 26 points, making six of seven three-point baskets, and Jamaal Williams had 24 points to help No. 14 Washington rout Oregon State, 108-68, Saturday night at Seattle. Beaver Coach Jay John left the arena in an ambulance at halftime after complaining of chest pains and shortness of breath. John, 46, was examined by athletic trainers and an on-call doctor at the arena, then paramedics were called.

Bobby Jones made two key baskets down the stretch and two free throws with 16.5 seconds left to lead No. 10 Washington to a 69-65 victory over Oregon State Thursday night. The Huskies, 15-2 overall, 4-2 Pacific 10, ended a two-game conference losing streak at home after they had a 32-game home winning streak stopped. It was their third consecutive conference victory.

Last week's shutout did not count. Not really. Though the USC defense summoned its most impressive performance of the season last Saturday -- on paper, at least -- the victory came against struggling Stanford. So this Saturday night the question was: How would the Trojans fare against the Oregon offense, ranked ninth in the country in rushing and 19th in passing?

Leon Powe took control from the start, ending up with 30 points to help California move into a tie for first place in the Pacific 10 Conference with a 75-66 victory over Arizona Thursday night at Berkeley. The Golden Bears (16-6 overall, 10-3 Pac-10) won for the sixth consecutive time to join UCLA at the top of the conference with five games left in the regular season. Cal is looking for its first conference title since Pete Newell's final season as coach in 1959-60.

Come Saturday, the UCLA football team will be facing a tall order. Heisman Trophy candidate Brady Quinn will be throwing to a big and sure-handed corps of Notre Dame receivers, led by 6-foot-5 Jeff Samardzija, 6-2 Rhema McKnight and 6-6 tight end John Carlson. The underdog Bruins will counter with 5-9 Trey Brown and 5-11 Rodney Van starting at cornerback, backed by 5-10 freshman Alterraun Verner as the nickel back in passing situations. An extra-large challenge? Not really.

USC old-timers nostalgic for the Sports Arena may be on the verge of receiving a reprieve. The 46-year-old facility could serve as the location of a first-round National Invitation Tournament game. The Trojans' performance Thursday night in a 73-61 loss to Oregon would seem to suggest that an NIT bid may be the best they have to hope for.
