VIDEO: Memphis broken play buzzer-beater sinks Temple

Arizona State guard Shannon Evans scored 22 points and Kodi Justice had 14 as the No. 11 Sun Devils overcame a 13-point, second-half deficit for a 77-75 victory over Oregon State on Saturday at Wells Fargo Arena in Tempe, Ariz.

OR used a late spurt to go up eight points and hit four free throws in the final 32 seconds to earn its biggest win of the season.

On the season, OR basketball averages 81.3 points, 38.4 rebounds and 15.4 assists per game.

California: Cal has now dropped four consecutive games and will play a tough Arizona team who is up next on their schedule.

Evans made two free throws and a driving layup, then capped it with a 3-pointer in the 10-0 surge that put Arizona State ahead 73-68 with 1:07 remaining. Brecca Thomas had 12 points and Mya Hollingshed scored 10 as the reserves accounted for 31 points for the Buffaloes (11-5, 2-3).

There were nine lead changes and neither team led by more than five points in a tight first half that ended with Oregon State up 34-33.

In all UA had just eight points off the bench in the game with an unlikely source providing six of them.

Malachi Flynn added 14 points along with a solid performance from Drick Bernstine who played facilitator scoring 10 points with six rebounds and nine assists. The Sun Devils (13-4, 4-1) called a full timeout with 16.1 seconds showing on the clock, but a Courtney Ekmark desperation three-point attempt was partially blocked by Pivec and fell well short.

Remy Martin (12 points), De'Quon Lake (11) and Kimani Lawrence (4) combined to give ASU a 27-7 edge in bench points.

The Wildcats defeated the Oregon State Beavers in their last outing, 62-53.


Four players are averaging at least 10.1 points per game for Arizona, they are Deandre Ayton (20.0), Trier (19.6), Rawle Alkins (15.0) and Dusan Ristic (10.1) per game.

It wasn't just his scoring, he also added seven assists along with his 22 points. Lexi Bando typified the UO shooting frustrations; she opened the game with a three-pointer and made two straight for Oregon's final points of the night, but in between missed eight in a row, a couple of them rolling around the rim and falling out.

"We learned how to win (Friday) against a great team", Rueck said.

Arizona (14-4, 4-1 Pac-12) grinded out a defense-dominated win over Oregon State on Thursday. Arizona hit its first six shots and blew past OR with a 17-2 run to go up 21-9.

Oregon had been in a funk before this week, losing two of its first three Pac-12 games, including a disheartening 76-64 setback against rival Oregon State.

Trier commended the Beavers for their ability to slow the game's pace to their liking, forcing Arizona to play a bogged-down, half court style of offense that tested their morale.

UP's biggest lead was only two points, early in the contest. "And we lost a game to a team [Colorado] that played very well on that particular day".

After trailing early by seven points, OR rode a 14-2 run to lead 19-14 after one quarter.

The Cavaliers never led by more than one point. Overall, he had 14 points along with three assists and three steals. Davis answered with his first 3-pointer of the game and pushed the Cardinal lead back to five.
