Washington clinches share of Pac-10 title

UCLA saw one of its preseason goals slip away -- at least partially -- before getting a chance to take the court against California this evening.

Washington's 83-78 victory over Arizona on Saturday afternoon guaranteed the 21st-ranked Huskies at least a share of the Pacific 10 Conference regular-season title.

The 22nd-ranked Bruins were shooting for their fourth consecutive outright Pac-10 title.

They can still can manage a tie, but will need to win the rest of their games and get some help. If the Huskies defeat Washington State next week -- or if some of their pursuers lose -- they will claim their first outright title since 1953.

"It wasn't pretty by any means," Huskies forward Jon Brockman told the Associated Press after his team's victory. "We can celebrate for a little bit."
