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

ON THE WOMEN'S SIDE: No. 18 Arizona State faces its most hard road trip of the season when it plays No. 22 Oregon State on Friday, then at No. 8 Oregon on Sunday.

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.

Allonzo Trier scored 15 of his 21 points in the second half and No. 17 Arizona pulled away from a sluggish, close game in the final 7 1/2 minutes to beat Oregon State 62-53 on Thursday night.

OR beat Arizona State on Thursday, 76-72.

The Beavers got off to a hot start, building a 12-2 lead in the game's first five minutes.

Alkins missed the first nine games of the season due to injury.

He was previously the head coach at Xavier for five years.

Allerik Freeman finished with 14 points for the short-handed Wolfpack (12-5, 2-2 Atlantic Coast Conference), who blew almost all of a 12-point lead with less than 90 seconds remaining but held on to claim their second home win over a Top 25 opponent in six nights after knocking off then-No.

OR had more second-chance points with 15, compared to Arizona State's 11.

Here are three thoughts on the game.

It's a matchup of opposites, with the Wildcats featuring a dizzying offensive attack spearheaded by a three-headed monster of Deandre Ayton, Allonzo Trier and Rawle Alkins-who score 20.4, 19.6 and 15.6 points per game, respectively.

The focus was Offense and passing the ball as well as Defensively working on Rebounding, which has been the theme for the Ducks since Altman joined the program. OR only made eight of its 31 attempts, but those eight and 14 offensive rebounds were the decisive aspects of their win.

Ayton and OSU freshman Alfred Hollins played together one season at Hillcrest Prep in Phoenix, Arizona. "Those teams are playing tremendous", Jackson-Cartwright said.

Despite moving into the No. 8 spot on the ASU all-time leading scorer's list, Tra Holder had one of his worst games of the season.

Freshman wing Troy Brown, a potential first-round pick, had two fouls in less than three minutes.

OR had their best run in the 1st Half with 1:32 on the clock. OR worked on the inside and found ways to carve up the Sun Devils.

For the season Wooten is shooting 77.5 percent from the field while averaging 7.9 points, 5.0 rebounds and 2.9 blocks.

"I just didn't, you know, maybe manage possessions better with the lead", Hurley said.

"We gotta get things in gear", Hurley continued.
