Adjust Comment Print

In 38 minutes, Thomas added 14 points, 11 rebounds, 1 assist and 2 steals with 4 turnovers.

Arizona would lead by 12 at one point, taking a 21-9 lead, but OR would find a bit of a rhythm of their own, making this a close game just before halftime. We do have the inside game, the defense and the quickness in the backcourt to be a good halfcourt team.

OR scored 10 consecutive points with 3:37 left in the 3rd Quarter, making the game 37-26 in favor of Oregon.

OR struggled to find the range on offense, shooting 38 percent (21 of 55) from the floor and 33 percent (12 of 36) from 3-point range, but the Ducks' defense clamped down and held the Wildcats to 29-percent shooting from the floor, including 3 of 18 from distance (17 percent).

On the season, OR basketball averages 81.3 points, 38.4 rebounds and 15.4 assists per game.

Ionescu had 14 points by halftime, but she said the missed 3-pointers and early foul trouble for Hebard and freshman Satou Sabally had a snowball effect on Oregon's offense.

"We're searching for the balance we need".

"We're not in a great rhythm, and we haven't been". We still had open shots and we just didn't make them. Things got a little dicey when OR went up 75-71 around the five-minute mark.

Elijah Brown scored 25 points and MiKyle McIntosh had 20 for the Ducks.

After trailing early by seven points, OR rode a 14-2 run to lead 19-14 after one quarter. "It's also very hard to understand if you're new to it".

She has been a huge part of their hot streak, highlighted by a 26-point showing to lead a victory versus Cal-Berkeley, and a 30-point career high performance to give them the edge over Utah.

The conclusion of the first half was a story in itself when UA head coach Sean Miller "almost had an out-of-body experience" when talking to the officials for an out-of-bounds call on Arizona when an OR defender slapped the ball out of Rawle Alkins' hands. Neither team scored in the final three minutes of the half, and the Beavers did not score in the final 5 1/2 minutes.

"It was a physical game", Wayne Tinkle said.

Arizona State is led by a trio of senior guards in Tra Holder (20.9 points, 4.9 rebounds, 4.0 assists), Evans (17.1 points, 3.7 rebounds) and Justice (14.1 points, 3.0 rebounds).

Xavier Cannefax led Warner Pacific with 16 points.
