Oregon State women end Arizona State's win streak

Adjust Comment Print

The Ducks are coming from a 76-7 win over Arizona State in which Payton Pritchard scored 18 points in 5-for-11 shooting from the field and 4-for-4 from the free throw line.

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

Evans had all of his 22 points in the second half while Remy Martin scored 12 and De'Quon Lake 11 for the Sun Devils.

Pinder actually started against the Ducks in the Pac-12 Tournament last season, though that was largely because Miller put him on Dillon Brooks instead of Lauri Markkanen, figuring that Brooks' craftiness could result in Markkanen picking up some early fouls.

Rawle Alkins scored 11 points in Arizona's 70-62 win over Oregon State on January 11. The two men combined for seven of the eight made 3-pointers for OR on the night.

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.

BERKELEY, Calif. - Kristine Anigwe had 26 points and 10 rebounds and Penina Davidson added 18 points on 8-of-10 shooting with nine boards to help California hold off Washington. Ruthy Hebard added 14 points for Oregeon, which won its eighth consecutive game. 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.

The Wildcats started the game 0-4 from deep and let Oregon State take a 9-2 lead by the first media timeout.

"He's one of the top point guards in the country right now", said Kodi Justice, who hit four three-pointers and had 14 points.

Portland State's scoring leaders were Deontae North with 18 points, Bryce Canda with 17 and Holland Woods with 16.

Washington State (9-8, 1-4 Pac-12) finally got back in the win column after dropping its first four in conference play.

OR countered Arizona's defense with 36 3-point attempts, two off its season high, and made 12.

The rest, to use Alkins' words in his post-game press conference, was "all adrenaline", as the Wildcats' attacking defense drove the Beavers into oblivion, outscoring Oregon State 41-31 in the game's latter half.

After splitting two games last season, this will be the first matchup of the year between these two teams.

Senior point guard Parker Jackson-Cartwright deserves a ton of credit as well, finishing with 10 points and six assists with ZERO turnovers! From the tip, it was clear the Arizona Basketball team was going to have a tough time.

The Wildcats kept the run trend rolling, scoring eight straight points to go up 51-40 early in the second half. The "first two plays of the game didn't have a lot to do with zone".

After trailing early by seven points, OR rode a 14-2 run to lead 19-14 after one quarter. Overall, he had 14 points along with three assists and three steals.

With a bench that has contributed very little in terms of point production, Pinder was a difference maker in more ways than putting the ball in the basket, especially on the defensive end.

From then on, Arizona would rely on ball control and free throws to put this one away for good!
