Behind the top four are a muddle of teams who've been fairly inconsistent all season. Perhaps a deep run in the Pac-12 tournament can change that.
Her streak spanned 11 quarters and two overtime periods. And shine she has. Arizona State was 16 of 18 from the foul line but only attempted 9 free throws in the second half as the Ducks committed just 9 fouls after halftime.
Arizona will be in the big dance come March, however OR is on the bubble and needs as many big wins as they can get down the stretch in case they don't win the Pac-12 tournament. "We have been in a better rhythm and at the end of the games we've really been at our peak which is really good because the Pac-12 is really hard to play in". Trier's absence, pending an appeal, could throw the Pac-12 tournament wide open in Las Vegas next month. Arizona (6-22, 2-15) has five straight double-digits losses and was held to fewer than 50 points for the eighth time this season. Ristic, a senior, reached 110 career victories and tied Kaleb Tarczewski and Matt Muehlebach as the winningest players in program history. The lithe, athletic forward sets the standard for one of the country's best rebounding teams. The Cavailers (13-13 overall) are one of three teams entering the final weekend of conference play at 7-11, one game back of sixth-place Western Washington.
OR had a 40-32 rebounding edge.
"We have one more game, so we can't talk about it yet, but we're really excited".
Then the Ducks, who outscored Arizona State 21-5 in the third quarter of their 74-64 win in Eugene, took control of the game by outscoring the Sun Devils 20-8 in the third quarter and 33-19 in the second half. UA and OR are the only programs with winning conference road records during that span. The Wildcats wrap up their regular season Sunday against No. 8 Oregon. Bando has averaged 10.0 points a game, is shooting.444 from beyond the 3-point arc and is averaging 2.4 made 3-pointers per game. The 7-foot-1 freshman is averaging 20.6 points, 11.6 rebounds and 2.3 blocks per game over his last three contests.
Notes: The Ducks matched the 1998-99 Pac-10 title team for most conference wins (15) in a season. Simon, who told Trakh when he arrived that she didn't want to look at this season as a rebuilding year, has played like someone hungry to make the most of her final campaign. The Bruins (19-8, 10-5 Pac-12) are in decent shape for an NCAA Tournament berth after beating the OR schools last week.
On the season, Oregon State basketball averages 73.4 points, 35.0 rebounds and 14.9 assists per game. In the first meeting of the season, McIntosh left Tempe with 12 points and 13 boards. Eighth-ranked OR has a one-game lead for the regular-season title.
An odd day turned into an odd night for Arizona up in Corvallis, but the 14th-ranked Wildcats were able to use a strong showing from sophomore wing Rawle Alkins to pull away from Oregon State in what turned into a 10-point overtime win, 75-65, Thursday night.
