Cody Justice added 14 points, including four 3-pointers, for the Sun Devils (14-3, 2-3 Pac-12), who were coming off an upset home loss to OR on Thursday night.

Forward Tres Tinkle had 18 points and nine rebounds and Stephen Thompson Jr. scored 12 points for the Beavers, who had won eight of their past 10.

Arizona State prevailed despite an off night from point guard Tra Holder. To this point, he's had an up-and-down year, but seemed to perhaps have turned a corner to giving the Ducks a solid post presence the last two games.

Robbi Ryan had 19 points to lead the Sun Devils (13-4, 4-1).

OR has five players scoring in double figures this season, but only six Ducks scored against Arizona. 15 Washington on January 5, 1985.

Anigwe and Davidson combined to make 20 of 28 shots from the floor (71 percent), but the rest of the Golden Bears shot just 23.5 percent (8 of 34).

There were nine lead changes and neither team led by more than five points in a tight first half that ended with Oregon State up 34-33. ASU was 6 of 9 from the foul line in the half. He took one shot in the second half, and missed.

The Wildcats are 16th in the NCAA with 30.6 rebounds allowed per game while the Ducks are 48th with 32.2 rebounds allowed per game. Meanwhile, Ayton did his teammate one better with a game-high 25 points. It was a similar tale in the second half, as Arizona opened the half on a 10-2 run.

"We felt like we should have had a little more of a lead", Tinkle said, "then they did what they did".

Kwinton Hinson provided a Cougar spark with seven points, seven rebounds and six assists in 26 minutes of play. "Blocked shots come on transition baskets and that's what really helps our team get energized".

This was a game where you wouldn't have blamed Arizona coach Sean Miller if he would have sweated through his shirt.

The loss for California (7-11, 1-4) was its fourth straight, punctuating an abysmal performance in the second half. Juhwan Harris-Dyson added 12 points and 11 rebounds. Kat Wright added 12 points and Jalea Bennett had 10.

Benitez urges his Newcastle players to be more clinical
He (Ashley) knows he has to improve the team so that we have the quality which allows us to stay in the Premier League . So if someone is coming and approaching us about them, then we have to consider that.

Hard search goes on in California mudslides
With most utilities out of commission or about to be cut off, staying behind was not really an option for many. And rescue teams were still slogging through the mud, hunting for the missing and assessing the damage.

Abreu swept all three of his races and earned the automatic berth into the 55-lap feature at the Tulsa Expo Center. Bell, who grew up in nearby Norman, benefitted from NASCAR Monstery Energy Series star Kyle Larson's misfortune.

OR (16-2) shot a season-low.382 but held Arizona to.293 shooting - including a 2-of-18 stretch to open the second half. We've had four really hard days coming off of the Colorado game, and sometimes that's what you need, an opportunity to learn, and there's better learning opportunity than when you fail.

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.

"Oregon is becoming one of the best teams in our conference", Miller said.

It took quite a while for Arizona to figure out how to get anything against Oregon State's match-up zone defense. It was all about the offense on Saturday, two long, athletic teams trading runs throughout an entertaining game. Trier would hit a big-time three-point jumper making it 81-77 in favor of the Wildcats, ultimately sealing the win for Arizona.

Boy, do we have an underrated doozy of a game at McKale Center tonight, with Oregon State traveling to Tucson to play the 17th-ranked Arizona Wildcats.

The Wildcats started the game 0-4 from deep and let Oregon State take a 9-2 lead by the first media timeout. "Before I got hurt, that used to be my favorite dunk, so I was us like whatever". The Huskies are still looking for their first Pac-12 win under new coach Jody Wynn. Arizona's effective field goal percentage was its biggest strength over Oregon. OR forced the Wildcats into 17 turnovers on the day. It needed all of those points because Arizona's bench once again nearly came up empty.

"Nobody works harder than Allonzo", Miller said. From the tip, it was clear the Arizona Basketball team was going to have a tough time.

UP's biggest lead was only two points, early in the contest. OR took its turn, tying the game at 55-all. "And we lost a game to a team [Colorado] that played very well on that particular day". OR won the rebounding battle.

After trailing early by seven points, OR rode a 14-2 run to lead 19-14 after one quarter. Hannah Johnson and Mai-Loni Henson each scored 13, with Johnson adding 11 rebounds.

Davis was the star, playing a few miles from where he was a prep star at Garfield High School and on the court he was originally slated to play collegiately. He did have seven turnovers.

Montana climbed to 6-0 in the Big Sky and 14-5 overall. They either laid it in or got to the free-throw line.
