Oregon Ducks Need Another Complete Game Effort Against Arizona Wildcats


The Beavers, who also played Arizona close on Thursday but lost on a late Wildcat rally, have not beaten a Top 25 team on the road since a win at then-No. "That's what we expected".

Miller highlighted the team's excellence from the line as a key to overcoming their 17 turnovers against a relentless OR press.

OR should improve on its best-ever No. 8 ranking after midweek losses by No. 2 Notre Dame, No. 6 Tennessee and No. 7 Texas if it beats No. 18 Arizona State for its ninth consecutive win. The Wildcats shot 53 percent from the field to beat the team that ended their 49-game home-court winning streak a year ago.

"The last four minutes we always take a lot of pride in finishing the game", Miller said. We still had open shots and we just didn't make them. But we'll learn from it. "Other than the turnovers we had some outstanding play, outstanding moments".

Arizona had the last one, scoring eight straight points to go up 84-77 with 72 seconds left. You look out and see things happen. You have those moments when you don't score but in the end it's how did you end up doing.

"I think you are just seeing this team get better and better and the sky's the limit for this group", Rueck said.

OR (12-6, 2-3) rallied from double-digit deficits three times, but couldn't muster a final comeback to leave the desert with a split between the Pac-12's two Arizona schools.

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. It was all about the offense on Saturday, two long, athletic teams trading runs throughout an entertaining game.

"It was a huge win, especially because OR is rolling right now", Alkins said. They didn't play Wooten. "Our D unfortunately went south on us".

He added the country "would be forced to take large numbers of people from high crime countries which are doing badly". The sources spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to publicly describe the conversation.

"I used to kid the kids that people aren't very bright if they're going to zone us", said.

Cody Justice added 14 points, including four 3-pointers, for the Sun Devils (14-3, 2-3 Pac-12), who were coming off an upset home loss to OR on Thursday night.

Pinder said matching up with the Ducks was somewhat easier without Jordan Bell around this time, collecting two blocks and a steal in his 18 minutes. "But I think we made a jump this week". And when the game was on the line, they showed up in a huge way. He's already getting in 300th shots before the game. He has this unique skillset. "We're working on it in practice".

Arizona dared to do what OR coach thought any team would be insane to try against his Ducks. "That's him. That's him". It was his only 3 of the game, and Davis added 10 rebounds and five assists.

"I want to talk about two players who really deserve my attention", Miller said. He played back-to-back two incredible games.

Arizona State's Tra Holder, leading the Pac-12 with a 20.9 scoring average coming in, scored four points on 1-of-9 shooting. "So I thougth Parker was really our floor general and Allonzo played well".

"We've got to keep moving the ball, we've got to stay consistent moving the ball well and get defensive stops", said guard Tony Snell (11 points). It is on the right track, thank goodness he's healthy and playing, the best is yet to come for Rawle.

"It is still gonna take some time".
