Oregon State Beavers vs. Arizona Wildcats Preview 01/11/18

The loss drops Oregon State to 2-2 in Pac-12 play.

Arizona State had the biggest lead in the game with an advantage of 13 at one point.

The Ducks' quickness, length and bounce shined through with how they stuck around in a game they only led for less than 90 seconds of the first half. The Beavers led Arizona 22-21 at halftime, aided by two fouls on 7-foot-1 National Basketball Association prospect Deandre Ayton.

Payton Pritchard scored 18 points and hit two free throws with 13.8 seconds left, helping OR hold off No. 11 Arizona State 76-72 on Thursday night.

Arizona State got just eight points from their bench, leaving the scoring duties to their trio of guards, which saw senior Kodi Justice take centerstage on Thursday.

Sophomore guard Payton Pritchard has been Oregon's leading scorer almost all season, but in Pac-12 play he'd struggled before Thursday with 9.3 points per game on 32.1-percent shooting.

The Wildcats defeated the Sun Devils in Tucson and beat Utah on the road, but fell to Colorado in Boulder, which was fresh off of its upset against the Sun Devils. That ignited the 16-3 run that finally put the game under control for the Wildcats. As teams look to make their move in the Pac-12 Conference, the Ducks are not where they want to be following a loss to Oregon State and a 1-2 Conference mark.

Rawle Alkins capped that run with a transition 3-pointer from the corner after Ayton blocked OSU's Tres Tinkle on the other end. Dusan Ristic and Parker Jackson-Cartwright trapped Thompson near the sideline and midcourt lines and when Thompson coughed it up, Alkins picked it up and raced in for an expressive reverse dunk that made it 29-26. The Beavers went back ahead 35-31 with its defense continuing to throw off UA offensively.

Maybe all OR needed to get back on track was to get out of the state.

Arizona shot 38 percent from the floor and 2-for-11 from 3-point range while OSU shot 34 percent and hit 2-of-7 from deep.

Arizona turned 17 Oregon State turnovers into 20 points and finished the night with 12 fast break points, including two dunk of the year candidates in less than a minute of action.

St. Mary's 59, Santa Clara 46: Megan McKay scored a game-high 20 points to lead the host Gaels (11-5, 4-1 WCC) past the Broncos (5-11, 1-4), who shot a season-low 27.4-percent from the field. The two men combined for seven of the eight made 3-pointers for OR on the night.

But Ayton sat out five minutes in the first half after collecting his second foul, and the Wildcats missed their first eight 3-pointers.
