OR knocks off No 11 Arizona State

OR knocks off No 11 Arizona State

OR out-rebounded Arizona State 38-31 with 15 offensive rebounds, helping them to a 15-11 edge in second-chance points and a tremendous 38-16 edge on points in the paint. The Ducks outscored the Sun Devils 38-16 in the paint.

OR will have opportunities for wins that may land them closer to the Top 25 in coming weeks. Also in double-figures for Oregon State are Stephen Thompson (16.5 PPG) and Drew Eubanks (13.8 PPG; 6.7 RPG).

The senior knows how tough the 11 teams Arizona plays in conference play are, and knows that coming out flat is a death sentence against a quality opponent like OSU. That continued a trend for the 6-foot-9 freshman - in four Pac-12 games he's fouled out twice, picked up 17 fouls total, scored just 19 total points, and played just 82 combined minutes.

OR wasn't as effective in turning points into turnovers - 13 points from turnovers, compared to Arizona State's 14. Pritchard put the game on ice with two free throws in the closing moments that put the game out of reach for the Sun Devils.

Kodi Justice had 21 points, Shannon Evans II 19 and Tra Holder finished with 14 for the Sun Devils.

That came through Oregon's guards, sophomore Payton Pritchard and junior Elijah Brown, who had 18 points apiece while the floor general Pritchard added six assists.




Known for second-half explosions, the Sun Devils had only 31 points in the 20 minutes that the Ducks mostly handled. "They came in and worked their butts off (Tuesday) and they want to get better".

The Beavers have also started off slowly in the Pac-12 after being swept at No. 14 UCLA and USC this past weekend. Similar to that ranking, Oregon State trails only Florida.

OR had a 38-31 rebounding advantage and grabbed 15 offensive rebounds to Arizona State's eight. Colorado is 10th nationally in rebounds with 44.93 per game.

"It was a physical game".

Oregon State went toe-to-toe with No. 17 Arizona before a late run propelled the Wildcats to a 62-53 win on Thursday night at the McKale Center.

"They did a nice job of tempoing the game and make it a real possession game", Hurley said. "Defense-to-offense, we had a lot of great plays".
