Ducks, Beavers just miss in Arizona

Ducks, Beavers just miss in Arizona

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.

Gülich made one of her two free throws, giving the Sun Devils an opportunity to send the game into overtime.

While Holder never found his groove, shooting 1-0f-9 for the night, Shannon Evans II provided an added boost for the Sun Devils in the second half.

Who Stood Out: Ionescu finished with a game-high 22 points, the last a three-pointer for Oregon's biggest lead at 54-34 in the fourth quarter.

Oregon's Sabrina Ionescu scored a team-high 22 points in the win, hitting 8 of 14 shots from the field for a 57.1% field goal percentage. Ruthy Hebard added 14 points for Oregeon, which won its eighth consecutive game. Gülich came into the matchup averaging 16.5 points per game and three blocks. Brown leads in rebounds with 7.5 while Pritchard tops in assists with 4.2 per game.

Trier would lead all Arizona scorers with 25 points, going a flawless 11 for 11 from the charity stripe in this one! They also faced a zone against Oregon State on Tuesday, when they had 10 first-half turnovers.

Miller knows that starting five of Trier, Alkins, Deandre Ayton, Dusan Ristic and Parker Jackson-Cartwright-who have played in 363 games combined, have work to do to reach their potential, but that they're heading in the right direction.


Arizona was able to overcome mistakes (17 turnovers) to get the win and move to 14-4 overall and 4-1 in the Pac-12. Arizona hit its first six shots and blew past OR with a 17-2 run to go up 21-9. Trier would hit a big-time three-point jumper making it 81-77 in favor of the Wildcats, ultimately sealing the win for Arizona. Coach Larry Krystkowiak had to stop mid-sentence at his postgame news conference as Hill was heard in another room, shouting and swearing at Pac-12 coordinator of officiating Bobby Dibler.

Thompson Jr. made his fifth 3-pointer with 32 seconds remaining to trim Arizona State's lead to 75-73.

The Ducks bounced back on Thursday with a strong all-around game, knocking of No. 11 Arizona State 76-72 for their first win as an unranked team against a top-11 team in 41 years. "Trying to get on a winning streak, trying to get back on track, things like so I just tried to come up with big plays".

UP's biggest lead was only two points, early in the contest.

One-time Washington commit Daejon Davis returned to his hometown and had 16 points, Reid Travis also finished with 16 points, and Stanford completed its first two-game road sweep in conference play in almost eight years with a 73-64 win over Washington on Saturday night.

After trailing early by seven points, OR rode a 14-2 run to lead 19-14 after one quarter.

Davis was the subject of boos and chants from Washington fans throughout, but he silenced those same fans hitting a 3-pointer with 3:23 left to push Stanford's lead to 65-60. Mazyck was 9-for-14 from the floor, including 6-for-9 from beyond the three-point arc. He wanted them to learn to fight through it, and they may have to if they can't get more consistent scoring. Davis answered with his first 3-pointer of the game and pushed the Cardinal lead back to five.
