The Beavers (10-5, 2-1 Pac-12) have wins over both the Ducks and Buffaloes and suffered their only conference defeat in a 2-point loss to Utah.

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

Stephen Thompson Jr. chipped in 12 points for the Beavers.

Wildcats teammates Allonzo Trier and Rawle Alkins each sent McKale Memorial Center into a frenzy with incredibly dunks in the second half against Oregon State.

It was the first time the Ducks (12-5, 2-2 Pac-12) have beaten a Top 15 team on the road since 2007 when it won at Arizona.

"I am happy with our defensive effort", Arizona coach Sean Miller said. "They've got scoring coming off their bench as well so they're deep, they play really hard".

"They grinded us up on defense", he said. You look out and see things happen. Against Arizona State he had 18 points, tying with Elijah Brown for the team high, along with 4 rebounds and 6 assists.

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.

Oregon State led the entire first half and was up 22-21 at the break, the lowest-scoring half for Arizona this season, and the lowest-scoring for a Beavers opponent.

"They did a nice job of tempoing the game and make it a real possession game", Hurley said.

The Pac-12 won't have three top-10 teams as it did previous year with Arizona, Oregon, and UCLA, but it without a doubt has the most parity in college basketball this season.

Tra Holder had 14 points on 4-of-13 shooting for Arizona State, which shot 43.5 percent and made 10 of 24 3-point attempts. 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.

For the most part, they played strong perimeter defense in a zone that kept the pace slow while constantly having success using dribble penetration on the other end.
