No. 17 Arizona blows past Oregon State

That continued a trend for the 6-foot-9 freshman - in four Pac-12 games he's fouled out twice, picked up 17 fouls total, scored just 19 total points, and played just 82 combined minutes.

While I don't expect the Ducks to win out, a winning streak will go a long way in the decision of where this team will play in March and right now, the Pac-12 is Wide Open. Allonzo Trier led all scorers with 21 points.

How to bet: Vegas has Arizona as a 15-point favorite against Oregon State.

Five players are averaging at least 10.3 points per game for Arizona, they are: Tra Holder (21.4), Evans II (16.9), Kodi Justice (13.7), Romello White (12.8) and Remy Martin (10.3) per game.

Arizona is a 15-point favorite on the opening line, while the game's Over/Under (O/U) opened at 145.5 points.

It was back and forth after that until Ayton's rebound basket put Arizona ahead for good, 40-39 with 7:33 left. And as Bruce Pascoe from the Arizona Daily Star noted, that was UA's lowest-scoring first half of the season, and worst since it put up 18 in a blowout loss at OR last season. The games against the Bruins and Trojans are set for the ESPN Family of Networks and wins by OR could go a long way in deciding where this team ends up in the postseason.

Sam Hunt fouled DeVoe as he flung up a 3-pointer from the corner.

Malachi Flynn led Washington Statewith 24 points, including seven three-pointers.

Arizona State wasn't able to take advantage of a big crowd of 13,693 at Wells Fargo Arena, the largest attendance number it's had since 2010.

Arizona shot 38 percent from the floor and 2-for-11 from 3-point range while OSU shot 34 percent and hit 2-of-7 from deep.

St. Mary's 59, Santa Clara 46: Megan McKay scored a game-high 20 points to lead the host Gaels (11-5, 4-1 WCC) past the Broncos (5-11, 1-4), who shot a season-low 27.4-percent from the field.

OR is 9-0 this season when assisting on at least 50 percent of its baskets and 3-5 when failing to share the ball at least half the time. Drew Eubanks finished with eight points and five rebounds for the Beavers.

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

Deandre Ayton had 14 points and 10 rebounds and Rawle Alkins scored 11 points, nine in the second half, for the Wildcats (13-4, 3-1 Pac-12), coming off a loss Saturday at Colorado.
