OR beats Arizona St. 76-72 - Recap, Box score

After playing its first three Pac-12 games either at home or just down the road in Corvallis, the Ducks hit the road Thursday night and pulled off a major upset - a 76-72 win at No. 11 Arizona State.

The 2013-14 team had a first-year point guard in freshman Sydney Wiese and had three sophomores and a junior in the starting lineup along with Wiese. "Like I said, when you don't come out and you don't play hard, or you don't give great effort, you're vulnerable on any given night". It's not really my opinion.

Tres Tinkle scored 18 points and grabbed nine rebounds, but Oregon State couldn't hold its lead at 17th-ranked Arizona on Thursday. That raised capacity to more than 14,000 to watch the Sun Devils, who have seen a spike in attendance as a result of the best start in school history with an offense that ranks among the best in the country.

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.

"We have to credit them for some really good pressure defensively", OSU coach Wayne Tinkle said.

Oregon State led the entire first half and was up 22-21 at the break, the lowest-scoring half for Arizona this season, and the lowest-scoring for a Beavers opponent.

"They grinded us up on defense", he said.

The Wildcats outscored the visitors 24-14 over the final 7:33.

Maybe all OR needed to get back on track was to get out of the state.

"You can practice, prepare", Miller said, "but until you get in the game you don't realize the size they have, how well they communicate. I'm sure it will be a little different, but with their experience it does not matter what the atmosphere is, they are pretty good".

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

Gonzaga led 45-29 at halftime, behind 12 points from Hachimura.

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. In that one, Arizona's Deandre Ayton put up 26 points. That ignited the 16-3 run that finally put the game under control for the Wildcats. Kodi Justice led Arizona State's team in scoring with 21 points, while shooting 50% from the field (making 6 of 12 attempts).

"They're a much improved team, not only from last year to this year, that's obvious, but I think they're a very much improved team from the beginning of the year to now", Miller said.

For the most part, they played strong perimeter defense in a zone that kept the pace slow while constantly having success using dribble penetration on the other end.
