Oregon State Beavers vs. Arizona Wildcats Preview 01/11/18

Oregon at No. 17 Arizona tops the Pac-12 this week A Player's Preview: Oregon State

Oregon State enters this game with a 10-5 record overall.

Arizona State is led by Tra Parker who is hitting 45 percent from the floor and averaging 21 points and 5 rebounds per game.

TCU (No. 3), Texas Tech and Florida State immediately follow Oregon State to finish out the top 5 by Perfect Game.

OR (12-5, 2-2 Pac-12) used a late spurt to go up eight points and hit four free throws in the final 32 seconds to earn its biggest win of the season. Coach Sean Miller said after the game he has a hard time reaching the players on this year's team, admonishing their inability to play hard consistently.

The Beavers, who led for more than 26 minutes in the defeat, have now lost 33 of 34 at the McKale Center and will head to Tempe on Saturday for a 3 p.m. tip against No. 11 Arizona State.

Washington overcame a sloppy and unattractive first half filled with fouls and turnovers to pull away from California over the final 15 minutes.

"I probably have some responsibility for that because I just didn't quite maybe manage possessions better with the lead and try and go a little bit longer with a possession and move the ball a little bit more", head coach Bobby Hurley said after the game.

The Beavers took a 12-2 lead over the cold-shooting Wildcats, an early spurt capped by Tinkle's 3-pointer.

It's a matchup of opposites, with the Wildcats featuring a dizzying offensive attack spearheaded by a three-headed monster of Deandre Ayton, Allonzo Trier and Rawle Alkins-who score 20.4, 19.6 and 15.6 points per game, respectively. "We were playing 25 seconds on shot clock, they'd miss a shot and get no boards". The Ducks continued to focus on things they could control, namely efficient rebounding and crisp passing. OR only made eight of its 31 attempts, but those eight and 14 offensive rebounds were the decisive aspects of their win. ASU has shown they are prepared for big games this season.

Turnovers ultimately did in OSU, who could not handle the trapping and aggressive defensive pressure that Arizona turned up in the second half.

The Sun Devils had 13 total rebounds at the half and OR had 10 alone on the offensive glass, good for a total of 20.

"He used his physicality, he just crashed", Hurley said.

Ayton, a 7-foot-1 freshman, is averaging 20.1 points, a conference-leading 11.6 rebounds and 1.6 blocks.

The Sun Devils don't have an answer physically for players like McIntosh, who kept OR in a game that it, quite frankly, didn't deserve to be in with some of its sloppy plays early on.
