  • SEATTLE — Tia Presley and Lia Galdeira scored 31 points apiece and 7th-seeded Washington State beat No. 10 seed Oregon 107-100 in the first round of the Pac-12 Conference tournament on Thursday night.
    The 31 points was a career-high for Galdeira. Presley's career-high is 37. It was the first time in school history that two Washington State (16-15) players scored at least 30 points in the same game.
    WSU, which topped the 100-point plateau against Oregon for the second time in less than two weeks, will face second-seeded and 20th-ranked California in the quarterfinals today.
    Oregon's Jillian Alleyne scored 28 points and grabbed 21 boards, tying the Pac-12 tournament record for rebounds in a game. Her 12th rebound broke Chiney Ogwumike's Pac-12 record for rebounds in a season. Alleyne now has 476 this season.
    The 207 combined points broke the tournament record of 179, set by Arizona and Oregon in 2011.
