With Oregon State leading 26-25, strong UA defense on the perimeter forced OSU's Stephen Thompson Jr.to throw an errant ball into the post that Ayton easily picked off.

Payton Pritchard scored 18 points, including two on free throws with 13.8 seconds left, as visiting OR hold off No. 11 Arizona State 76-72 on Thursday night. Alkins scored seven in the surge, capping it with a 3-pointer that put Arizona up 54-42 with 4:10 to play.

The Wildcats played their first game since coach Sean Miller said, "I have a hard time reaching our guys" following an 80-77 loss at Colorado on Saturday.

Oregon State finished the 2017 season ranked third after advancing to the College World Series, where the Beavers were one of four teams remaining.

UA's all-time home record of 33-6 (.846) versus Oregon State in Tucson ranks as the program's highest home winning percentage versus a Pac-12 foe. Milan Acquaah added 10 points, while Drick Bernstine scored eight and grabbed 12 rebounds.

LOOKING AHEAD: Colorado had lost five of six, including its first two Pac-12 games, before pulling off a pair of upsets last weekend.

The Oregon Ducks face Arizona State Thursday at 7 pm Pacific Time on Fox Sports 1.

Loyola Marymount 67, USF 65: Eli Scott scored 18 points and Jeffery McClendon made three free throws with 0.7 of a second left as the host Lions (6-10, 1-4 WCC) edged the Dons (10-8, 2-3) to snap a six-game skid.

Stanford 79, at Washington State 70: Dorian Pickens had a career-high 28 points, including a key three-pointer with 76 seconds left, to help the Cardinal beat the Cougars.

USF 78, Loyola Marymount 60: Anna Seilund had 23 points and 12 rebounds for the host Dons (8-8, 3-2). Its previous low was 63 in a victory over St. Louis.

Arizona (13-4, 3-1) chipped away and eventually cut the lead to 22-21 at the halftime break.

Tres Tinkle had 10 points and four rebounds to lead the Beavers, who shot 34.5 percent but outrebounded the Wildcats 18-17 and had two fewer turnovers.
