OR scored 10 consecutive points with 3:37 left in the 3rd Quarter, making the game 37-26 in favor of Oregon.

Arizona, with Ayton and fellow 7-footer Dusan Ristic inside, was literally a much bigger challenge and the Wildcats played it to their advantage early. Arizona hit its first six shots and blew past OR with a 17-2 run to go up 21-9. The second one, 12-0, pulled them within 32-31.

The Beavers shot 39.3 percent overall but 42.9 percent from 3-point range.
