Pinder actually started against the Ducks in the Pac-12 Tournament last season, though that was largely because Miller put him on Dillon Brooks instead of Lauri Markkanen, figuring that Brooks' craftiness could result in Markkanen picking up some early fouls.
A third time put OR away.
"It's a huge win, especially because OR is rolling right now", Alkins said.
Washington State: The Cougars were able to get the first win in Pac-12 play after a record breaking performance from, who had 10 3-pointers. On Saturday, he hit for a season-high 20 points and stuffed the stat sheet everywhere else, with 7 rebounds, 2 blocks and 2 steals.
No. 8 Texas Tech did what they needed to do if they want to win the Big 12 regular season title this season: They defended their home court, erasing an 11-point second half deficit to knock off No. 2 West Virginia, 72-71, in Lubbock.
Arizona wasn't as effective in turning points into turnovers - 12 points from turnovers, compared to Oregon's 20. "Before I got hurt, that used to be my favorite dunk, so I was us like whatever".

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. "Like Keanu, he didn't play against Oregon State but the next trip in the Bay we're gonna need everybody". The UO women finally gained some separation by clamping down on defense in the third quarter, holding Arizona without a field goal until there were just 40.7 seconds left in the period; that basket was sandwiched between a pair of Aina Ayuso three-pointers, and the Ducks took a 45-31 lead into the fourth. It's why we won so many close games. As the Wildcats would begin to seemingly pull away, the Ducks would have an answer.
After trailing early by seven points, OR rode a 14-2 run to lead 19-14 after one quarter. The Huskies were unable to overcome long scoreless stretches in both halves and were outrebounded 48-28.
Davis was the subject of boos and chants from Washington fans throughout, but he silenced those same fans hitting a 3-pointer with 3:23 left to push Stanford's lead to 65-60. Alkins had 13 and Dusan Ristic and Parker Jackson-Cartwright each had 10. He did have seven turnovers. They almost gave it all away as the Huskies scored 11 of the next 13 points and pulled within 60-56 on Crisp's basket with 6:09 left. The "first two plays of the game didn't have a lot to do with zone".
What was good for UA was it outscored OR by 13 from the free-throw line, 34-21.
