OR at No. 17 Arizona tops the Pac-12 this week

Stephen Thompson Jr. and Tres Tinkle are Oregon State's top scorers this season

The Ducks dominated the paint, outscoring Arizona State 38-16 inside and scoring 15 second-chance points on 15 offensive rebounds.

The great equalizer, as always, is on the defensive end-with the Beavers ranking first in the Pac 12 in points allowed (68.6).

News 4 Tucson at 10 p.m. will have complete highlights and updates.

Sophomore guard Payton Pritchard has been Oregon's leading scorer almost all season, but in Pac-12 play he'd struggled before Thursday with 9.3 points per game on 32.1-percent shooting.

"You can practice, prepare", Miller said, "but until you get in the game you don't realize the size they have, how well they communicate".

North Carolina State 78, #19 Clemson 77: Omer Yurtseven scored 29 points as the host Wolfpack (12-5, 2-2 ACC) held off the Tigers (14-2, 3-1).

Since that loss to the Sun Devils on January 31, 2014, the Beavers have gone 113-21 overall. While I don't expect the Ducks to win out, a winning streak will go a long way in the decision of where this team will play in March and right now, the Pac-12 is Wide Open. Instead, Ira Lee's three-point play on a breakaway stuff and Trier's 3-pointer cut the lead to 22-21 with 3:11 to go, and neither team could score again before halftime.

Winfrey highlights story of black woman raped by white men
Her speech has now been watched more than 1.5 million times, but Winfrey's power goes well beyond yesterday's performance. Oprah Winfrey's best friend, Gayle King , is downplaying any suggestion that Winfrey might run for president.

On offense, particularly in that closing half, OR had a very simple formula: Get dribble penetration, see where the defense rotates, pass to who is open, shoot - OR work hard for offensive rebounds.

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.

"They grinded us up on defense", he said. OR only made eight of its 31 attempts, but those eight and 14 offensive rebounds were the decisive aspects of their win.

This year's team is in a similar boat as the 2013-14 one.

Coming up from McKale Center on Thursday, the Oregon State Beavers and the Arizona Wildcats will be meeting up in college basketball activity.

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.
