Arizona State's Tra Holder injures shoulder, struggles in win

Arizona would lead 41-38.

"It was a physical game".

"The play before halftime I nearly had an out-of-body experience", he said, referring to the non-call out of bounds play that gave the Ducks the ball.

"Plus, they junked it up a little bit, but I don't think it bothered us". I came to my senses. They were outscored 28-12 in the fourth after hitting just 5 of 20 from the field. "No official is flawless but that was probably one they missed". "Other than the turnovers we had some outstanding play, outstanding moments".

And on Saturday afternoon, Michigan's Mo Wagner was the best big man on the floor.

OR allows the eighth-fewest blocks per game (2.1) while Arizona ranks 51st (2.9).

Alkins, who finished Thursday's game against Oregon State with 11 points on 4-9 shooting, poked the ball loose from OSU guard Stephen Thompson Jr.

"We couldn't possibly shoot worse", said.

It surely didn't disappoint in terms of excitement.

Alkins' slam, in combination with a dynamic offensive performance turned in by fellow guard Allonzo Trier, propelled Arizona to a 70-62 victory, on a night with nearly as many turnovers (27) as field goals (44). Deandre Ayton had 24 points. Ayton leads in rebounds with 11.5 while Parker Jackson-Cartwright tops in assists with 4.9 per game. In the flawless world isn't that how a highly thought of team is supposed to fill the box score?

"Oregon is becoming one of the best teams in our conference", Miller said. "We are trying to get better at guarding the 3", coach Jason Kidd said. OR won the rebounding battle.

Still, there was that Duck comeback to see what it is made of.

"I think you are just seeing this team get better and better and the sky's the limit for this group", Rueck said. "I think OR is becoming one of the best teams in our conference".

"We were just getting lazy", coach Steve Kerr about his team's defense in the third quarter.

It's exactly what Arizona needed. 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.

Still, I ask the question: did Arizona win it in the end or did or lose it?

Gülich made one of her two free throws, giving the Sun Devils an opportunity to send the game into overtime. OR in that stretch combusted with turnovers and bad decisions. It's just once he got four fouls, Dana Altman is not gonna let him get away with playing with four fouls.

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. Kerr said Curry lobbied to return Friday and felt good at shootaround, but that the ankle still wasn't well enough for him to play. But again, for a couple stretches, it didn't. UA hit 34 of 37 freebies. "If you leave her open, that's a layup", said. Oklahoma moved into a four-way tie for first-place in the Big 12 with the win, but the story of this game may actually be TCU. Why? "I wasn't looking to at jumping off any bridges after we lost our last game and certainly not celebrating like we won the Super Bowl here tonight. (The) same for this one".
