    No. 1 Stanford (26-0) at Washington (16-10) 6:00 pm EST

    SEATTLE (Ticker) -- Top-ranked Stanford can become the first team in Pac-10 history to capture all 18 conference games on Saturday when it visits red-hot Washington.

    Stanford (26-0, 17-0 Pac-10) kept its quest for an unbeaten season alive with an amazing 63-61 victory at Washington State on Thursday. Matt Lottich drained a fallaway 3-pointer at the buzzer for the triumph.

    The Cardinal scored the final seven points of the game to keep their perfect record intact. Dan Grunfeld had a four-point play to set up a wild final sequence in which Lottich picked up a loose ball and passed it to teammate Nick Robinson. After Robinson nearly opted to go up for a shot with four seconds to go, he found Lottich behind him and Stanford's senior guard nailed his game-winner.

    "Sometimes you make your luck happen," Stanford coach Mike Montgomery said. "It's been a funny game and our team certainly has been the recipient of some good breaks"

    Lottich finished with 15 points and Josh Childress shook off 3-of-11 shooting to finish with 12 and 10 rebounds. The Cardinal failed to reach the 65-point plateau for the fourth time this season.

    Washington (16-10, 11-6) continued its resurgence with its 11th win in 13 games with Thursday's 76-58 triumph over California behind Tre Simmons' 16 points. The Huskies clinched the No. 2 seed in the upcoming Pac-10 tournament.

    Despite their success, the Huskies could use a win over the nation's top-ranked team to bolster their case for an NCAA Tournament at-large berth. Washington has bounced back from an 0-5 Pac-10 start to go 11-1 in conference play.

    Stanford improved to 21-1 in the last 13 meetings with Washington with an 85-72 victory on January 4. Robinson and Chris Hernandez each scored 13 points to lead the Cardinal while Simmons netted 13 for the Huskies.
