Eddie House scored 61 points and Arizona State rode his record-tying performance to a 111-108 double-overtime victory over California in Berkeley, Calif.
House shot 18 of 30, including 7 of 10 from three-point range, and made 18 of 19 free throws in surpassing his school record and tying a 33-year-old Pacific-10 Conference record. UCLA's Lew Alcindor also scored 61 points, against Washington State on Feb. 25, 1967.
Fittingly, House had the final say in the game, making a pair of free throws with 2.9 seconds remaining in the second overtime. Joe Shipp's desperation three-point try at the buzzer hit the rim and bounced away.
Earlier in the period, after Cal had gone in front, 103-99, House fueled a 10-0 Sun Devils' run, making a pair of jumpers and two free throws.
"If Eddie was on fire, he would have been burnt out a long time ago," Sun Devils Coach Rob Evans said. "He's been playing like this for over a month. He's just a great shooter."

Vershaw's unlikely game-winner was the high point of a frenzied second half in which Wisconsin erased a 15-point halftime deficit.

MICHIGAN STATE 75, IOWA 53: Morris Peterson scored 20 of his 29 points in the first half and Mateen Cleaves tied the Spartans' career assist record for No. 11 Michigan State, which won on the road.
