The start of the Pacific 10 Conference season means one thing to a UCLA basketball team that has struggled through its first dozen games. Forgetting. Forgetting about the missed shots and defensive breakdowns. Forgetting about seven losses against only five wins. "Coach told us we've got to start 0-0 right now," forward Nikola Dragovic said. "We have a chance to just start from the beginning. Start a whole new season." The Pac-10 opener comes against Arizona State at Pauley Pavilion this afternoon.

With Syracuse's season on the cusp of slipping away, Eric Devendorf picked the perfect time to be at his best. Devendorf made a pair of three-pointers less than a minute apart to snuff out a big Arizona State rally, and the third-seeded Orange held on for a 78-67 victory over the sixth-seeded Sun Devils in a South Regional second-round game Sunday at Miami. Devendorf finished with 21 points and Andy Rautins had 17 for Syracuse (28-9), which moves on to play second-seeded Oklahoma (29-5)

Arizona State, and the Pacific 10 Conference, may have seen NCAA tournament hopes damaged Thursday. The Sun Devils, who were trying to strengthen their postseason resume, left the Pacific Life Pac-10 Tournament early, losing to Stanford, 70-61, in the quarterfinals at Staples Center. Jeremy Green scored 18 points and Landry Fields 17 to put the Cardinal into Friday's semifinal against the winner of Washington and Oregon State. Arizona State (22-10) finished second in the Pac-10 but probably needed to reach the conference tournament final to lock down an at-large bid into the NCAA tournament.

That last five minutes of a basketball game, that span most coaches call "winning time," has become losing time for USC. The Trojans play well until that point: In all 17 of the Trojans' league games this season, they have either led or been tied in the second half. But, as was showcased yet again in Thursday's 59-54 loss to Arizona State, when the clock rolls to winning time, the Trojans crumble like clockwork. "We're not closing out, we're not paying attention to the details, and it has cost us," forward Marcus Johnson said.
