TEMPE - Kari Korver scored a career-high 17 points - including all five of UCLA's three-pointers - and the 17th-ranked UCLA women defeated ASU 58-50 Friday night.

The victory assured UCLA (22-6, 13-4) of the No. 3 seed in next week's Pac-12 tournament.

Alyssia Brewer had 12 points and nine rebounds, and Markel Walker had nine points and nine assists for UCLA, which ends its regular season Sunday at Arizona.

Janae Fulcher led ASU (13-16, 5-12) with 11 points. Micaela Pickens and Haley Videckis scored 10 each.

• No. 19 Colorado 60, Oregon 49: In Eugene, Ore., Arielle Roberson scored 16 points to lead Colorado, which won its eighth straight to clinch the fourth seed and a bye in next week's Pac-12 tournament.

• Oregon State 54, Utah 46: In Corvallis, Ore., Deven Hunter scored 15 points on 7-for-11 shooting and the Beavers ended a 10-game losing streak.

Rim shots

• St. Mary's, one of the most powerful mid-major programs, was placed on four years' probation Friday by the NCAA for recruiting violations and a "failure to monitor its men's basketball program."

Among the penalties: reduced scholarships; a five-game suspension at the beginning of next season for Gaels coach Randy Bennett; and the banning of Bennett from recruiting off campus.

• Former University of San Diego basketball star Brandon Johnson was sentenced to six months in prison Friday for his role in a game-fixing scheme.

San Diego's career scoring and assists leader admitted unsuccessfully soliciting an unidentified player during the 2010-11 season, when Johnson was no longer at the school. He insisted he never manipulated a game in which he played, though prosecutors alleged he sought to influence the outcome of games during his senior year.

• Sophomore D'Angelo Harrison, the third-leading scorer in the Big East Conference, was suspended Friday by St. John's for the rest of the season. No reason was released.
