Can't sleep? Catch exciting basketball!

Some of the most exciting games of the season have been played on the West Coast - but you have to be an insomniac to have seen them because of those late starting times. Stanford was involved in two of them. First, the Cardinal came from 12 points behind in the second half to beat UCLA. Then Stanford lost in double overtime to Gonzaga, although Cardinal guard Anthony Goods kept hitting unconscious 3-pointers to keep his team in the game. Thursday, UCLA beat Oregon (maybe the country’s best kept secret with one of the country’s best unknown players in guard Aaron Brooks) 69-57. -- David Scott
