OSU women's basketball: Beavers overcome tough week to pick up big win

Stifling defense helped the UO women's basketball team beat Arizona on Friday night, 62-44, to secure the Ducks' first ever 5-0 start to conference play and give them sole possession of first place in the Pac-12.

OR scored 10 consecutive points with 3:37 left in the 3rd Quarter, making the game 37-26 in favor of Oregon.

OR has five players scoring in double figures this season, but only six Ducks scored against Arizona.

"I am happy with our defensive effort", Arizona coach Sean Miller said.

"He had two bad games in a row where he doesn't shoot the ball well but you gotta judge him on his numbers and I also thought he played really hard defensively in both games, did a good job against Payton Pritchard, and Payton's a heck of player as well".

"But, when you turn it over as many times as we did, 17, and 10 in the first half you're shooting yourself in the foot".

Golar LNG Partners (NASDAQ:GMLP) Rating Increased to Buy at Stifel Nicolaus
Advisory Research Inc decreased Union Pacific Corporation (NYSE:UNP) stake by 8,357 shares to 17,975 valued at $2.09M in 2017Q3. ABN Amro upgraded Golar LNG from a "hold" rating to a "buy" rating in a research report on Monday, October 30th.

In the first half, the teams were tied nine times and the lead changed hands 15 times before PSU went to the locker room on top, 48-42. "Other than the turnovers we had some outstanding play, outstanding moments". "Well, we got zoned tonight and they looked pretty smart for doing it".

"The last 4 minutes were the difference", said OR guard Payton Pritchard, who had 12 points and seven assists.

"It's a huge win, especially because OR is rolling right now", Alkins said. "They had that big win in Phoenix and we didn't want to lose because we have to protect our home court". Cazorla added nine points with six assists, and Hebard added 14 points with six rebounds. He can find the shot inside as well as hit a key three-pointer when needed. Ayton finished with 24 points and seven rebounds, while Rawle Alkins added 13 of his own. After Ristic found himself in some early foul trouble and with OR going a bit small, Miller turned to senior and sometimes seldom-used power forward Keanu Pinder for some important minutes.

Miller praised Pinder for his gritty effort against the Ducks, with two blocks and a rebound, while making four free throws at the end of the second half. Alkins said the team wouldn't have been able to win without the senior from Australia, but the team still has some work to do to get its bench where it needs to be.

"[Oregon's] been the one team that's had some success coming in here, and they have a lot of confidence when they come in here, so we'll definitely be prepared for a battle Saturday", Trier said. Tip off begins OSU and Arizona State is at 5:30.... Foul trouble, illness, injuries, styles of the opponent. you just can't win with five. "We've got to get production and we talked about not getting great production versus OR in our bench and tonight the bench responded". "They are fearless and they play hard ... we rose to the challenge". I have to really convince myself to take Deandre out. "You just got to stay ready, you never know when you are going to get the opportunity". They have won 79 of 81 games going back to the 2012 season. A ball was knocked away from Alkins by an OR player but the referees gave the Ducks the ball sending Miller into a frenzy.

"I love blocking shots", Pinder said. "I couldn't remember where I was". Wayne Tinkle said in his postgame radio interview OSU knew Evans would give them everything he could in the second half.
