The No. 3 Oregon Ducks dominated the No. 12 Arizona Wildcats, but lost to the No 19 Arizona State Sun Devils in their last meeting. The No. 9 Oregon State Beavers won in stunning fashion against the Sun Devils and look to get the season sweep over the Wildcats.
The No. 3 Oregon Ducks easily dispatched the No. 12 Arizona Wildcats on Friday night, 85-52. The win extends Oregon’s winning streak to nine games. The No. 6 Oregon State Beavers edged out the No. 19 Arizona State Sun Devils 64-62 on a Mikayla Pivec shot at the buzzer.
Sabrina Ionescu notched her 24th career triple-double with 15 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists. With 17 points, Satou Sabally extended her streak of double-digit scoring games to 10. Ruthy Hebard led all scorers with 22 points, which contributed to the 42 points the Ducks scored in the paint.
Cutting it close
The Beavers of Oregon State avenged a 55-47 loss to Arizona State by earning a 64-62 nail-biter of a victory. On an in-bounds play underneath the basket with 0.4 seconds left, Mikayla Pivec split two defenders near the free-throw line and hit the game-winner as the buzzer sounded.
Arizona State beat Oregon in Tempe but the Ducks will be a tough out in Matthew Knight Arena. Arizona State held the Beavers to 35 percent shooting on Friday, something that will be hard to repeat against a Ducks team that is playing as good as anyone in the country.
Arizona narrowly lost to Oregon State last month after another clutch shot from Pivec. The Beavers will look to secure another win while the Wildcats try to rebound from a devastating loss. Arizona is a talented team and will not give anything away.
