OR shakes slow start to beat Arizona

DSC_3761

Thompson's little brother, Ethan, added 11 points, as did teammate Drew Eubanks.

Robert Franks scored 25 of his 34 points in the second half, breaking a program record for 3-pointers made in a single game, and Washington State cruised to a 78-53 win over California on Saturday. Arizona (12-4, 3-1 Pac-12) opened its mountain swing last weekend with a solid win over Utah, but followed that up with an 80-77 loss at Colorado.

"We had a couple of good plays in a row, which the team fed off of, and we ran with it", Pinder said. He had six rebounds. "Guys are really helping each other, pressing the ball". "You just got to stay ready, you never know when you are going to get the opportunity".

The loss for California (7-11, 1-4) was its fourth straight, punctuating an abysmal performance in the second half. And when the game was on the line, they showed up in a huge way.

The Grizzlies' Michael Oguine, a 6-2 junior guard, poured in 39 points and grabbed eight rebounds. Juhwan Harris-Dyson added 12 points and 11 rebounds. After scoring 10 consecutive points, Arizona led 10-3. The Sun Devils (13-4, 4-1) called a full timeout with 16.1 seconds showing on the clock, but a Courtney Ekmark desperation three-point attempt was partially blocked by Pivec and fell well short.

Arizona had more second-chance points with 8, compared to Oregon's 2. The Wildcats again went on a big run, again allowed the Ducks to rally.

Allonzo Trier scored 25 points, Deandre Ayton added 24 and No. 17 Arizona used that late run to outlast OR 90-83 on Saturday.

"Oregon is becoming one of the best teams in our conference", Miller said. "We had to protect our home court".

The Ducks had been tied with their opponent Sunday, Arizona State, for first place in the Pac-12, and now are alone on top after the Sun Devils lost Friday at Oregon State. Stephen Thompson (21 points) continued his torrid shooting pace by hitting a season-high five three-pointers (5 of 10).

Fallen power lines crisscrossed a neighbor's yard, and trees lay like knocked-over bowling pins. They were supported by K-9 units, 10 helicopters and six bulldozers.

OR and Arizona went back and forth in the first half, with the Wildcats leading most of the way and 41-38 at the break despite a 13-0 Ducks run.

Could a MiKyle McIntosh breakout be coming?

Megan Huff led Utah (12-4, 3-2) with 17 points and 10 rebounds. I don't know what the deal was, but we've got to do a better job. The Huskies are still looking for their first Pac-12 win under new coach Jody Wynn.

Senior point guard Parker Jackson-Cartwright deserves a ton of credit as well, finishing with 10 points and six assists with ZERO turnovers!

Arizona, with Ayton and fellow 7-footer Dusan Ristic inside, was literally a much bigger challenge and the Wildcats played it to their advantage early.

While the Wildcats turned the ball over on their first two possessions and totaled nine turnovers for the first half, Miller said their zone offense improved.

Not all was bad in the first half as ASU guard Kodi Justice was electric from long range, connecting on 3-of-4 shooting, including back-to-back three-pointers with 3:30 left in the half.

"Nobody works harder than Allonzo", Miller said. Defensively, Arizona basketball yields 71.5 points against the opposing teams.
