UA went on a 13-0 run over a five-minute span to take a 21-9 lead after eight minute, at that point shooting 69.2 percent from the field and holding OR to 40-percent shooting.

Arizona pulled out a 90-83 win over OR with Ayton collecting 24 points and seven rebounds, and Trier scoring 25 with six rebounds.

"We went into the game and I said if somebody looks exhausted, let me know, but we ended up playing guys extra minutes", Altman said.

"They want to keep doing what we've done here (and) that's hard", he said.

"Plus, they junked it up a little bit, but I don't think it bothered us". "So you know it just felt even more better, just seeing them that wanted me to break the record, so it was nice".

"My emotions were high, you know I give a lot of praise to my teammates, they saw I was hot and they kept feeding me and they wanted me to shoot it", said Franks. Ionescu's double-double was her eighth of the season. Borislava Hristova scored 14 points on a poor shooting night (5 for 19).

Arizona trailed 27-26 at halftime, but the Wildcats missed their first 12 shots and had five turnovers to open the third quarter. Both field goals were three-pointers by Maite Cazorla, part of an 8-0 run midway through the quarter that amounted to all of Oregon's offense in the period.

Arizona finished 17 of 58 for 29.3 percent and was just 3 of 18 from 3-point range.

While the Wildcats allowed OR to shoot 47.4 percent, their defense helped them pull away down the stretch, with the Ducks going scoreless for over three minutes before Mikyle McIntosh scored inside to cut UA's lead to 84-79 with 59.5 seconds left. The Bruins shot just 36 percent from the field but controlled the glass 46-36, including a 20-7 edge in offensive rebounds. Brown leads in rebounds with 7.5 while Pritchard tops in assists with 4.2 per game.

The Beavers, who are 2-2 in conference, 10-6 overall and have won eight of their last 11 games and have held their last four opponents to less than 70 points, including holding the Arizona Wildcats to 62 points Thursday.

Freshman Troy Brown played only four minutes in the first half after picking up two fouls, leading Altman to go deeper into his bench than usual in the first half by playing all 11 scholarship players.

OR had the biggest lead in the game with an advantage of 20 at one point.

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.

Anigwe and Davidson combined to make 20 of 28 shots from the floor (71 percent), but the rest of the Golden Bears shot just 23.5 percent (8 of 34).

On the season, Arizona basketball averages 82.5 points, 37.2 rebounds and 15.8 assists per game. Hannah Johnson and Mai-Loni Henson each scored 13, with Johnson adding 11 rebounds.
