Boy, do we have an underrated doozy of a game at McKale Center tonight, with Oregon State traveling to Tucson to play the 17th-ranked Arizona Wildcats. He's second in the Pac-12 with 5.3 assists per game and was named the conference player of the week after averaging 17.5 points and 7.5 assists to lead Colorado to the upsets over the Arizona schools.

Washington overcame a sloppy and unattractive first half filled with fouls and turnovers to pull away from California over the final 15 minutes. Washington State is making 11.8 3-pointers per game this season, two more than any other Pac-12 team.

The senior knows how tough the 11 teams Arizona plays in conference play are, and knows that coming out flat is a death sentence against a quality opponent like OSU. Tres Tinkle scored 18 points for Oregon State.

Despite Oregon's poor 3-point shooting (26 percent) and ASU getting to the free-throw line (31 attempts), the Ducks were able to be either be in control or keep the deficit close for the entirety of the game.

Guard Kodi Justice scored 21 points and Shannon Evans II added 19 for the Sun Devils (13-3, 1-3). Elijah Brown had 18 points and hit two free throws with 32 seconds left for Oregon.

Miller, Alkins and Trier spoke in the postgame press conference after the game, watch what they had to say. OR only made eight of its 31 attempts, but those eight and 14 offensive rebounds were the decisive aspects of their win.

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.

"They're really doing a great job and scoring inside and out", he said.
