OR vs Arizona basketball

13 January 2018

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.

ASU had the lead for most of the game but couldn't hold on as the Beavers took the lead in the final minute and eventually beat out the Sun Devils 57-54.

Deandre Ayton and Dusan Ristic had 10 points each to lead the Wildcats in scoring, while New Mexico transfer Elijah Brown had 13 to lead OR despite committing a technical foul that resulted in two free throws by Allonzo Trier.

Allerik Freeman finished with 14 points for the short-handed Wolfpack (12-5, 2-2 Atlantic Coast Conference), who blew almost all of a 12-point lead with less than 90 seconds remaining but held on to claim their second home win over a Top 25 opponent in six nights after knocking off then-No.

Arizona wasn't as effective in turning points into turnovers - 12 points from turnovers, compared to Oregon's 20.

The Sun Devils finished shooting 35 percent from the field (6-21 from three) and made four of their seven free throws.

#8 OR 62, Arizona 44: Sabrina Ionescu had 22 points and 11 rebounds as the visiting Ducks (16-2, 5-0 Pac-12) pulled away in the second half. Here's a look at the 11th-ranked Arizona State Sun Devils. Ruthy Hebard added 14 points for Oregeon, which won its eighth consecutive game. Sam Thomas had 14 points to lead the Wildcats (4-12, 0-5). Arizona lost any hope for an upset by missing its first 12 shots of the third quarter to see a one-point halftime deficit balloon to 14.

Marcquise Reed scored 17 points, Donte Grantham added 16 and Mark Donnal finished with a season-high 13 for Clemson (14-2, 3-1), which had its 10-game winning streak end.

How It Happened: Arizona's rough shooting night wasn't apparent from the start, as the Wildcats (4-12, 0-5 Pac-12) made 4-of-7 attempts to open the game and take a 10-3 lead.

OR had the biggest lead in the game with an advantage of 20 at one point. Both hit four 3-pointers.

Clinging to a 67-66 lead in the fourth quarter, UCLA (12-4, 3-2 Pac-12) got a layup from Canada to spark a 5-0 spurt and hung on from the free-throw line over the final 4 minutes to seal it.

AD fined: Utah athletic director Chris Hill was fined $10,000 by the Pac-12 for inappropriate language and public comments regarding men's basketball officiating after Sunday's loss to Arizona State. The Huskies are still looking for their first Pac-12 win under new coach Jody Wynn.
