The team also got the second double-double of the season from senior forward Mikyle McIntosh, who finished with 12 points and a season-high 13 rebounds.

It's a matchup of opposites, with the Wildcats featuring a dizzying offensive attack spearheaded by a three-headed monster of Deandre Ayton, Allonzo Trier and Rawle Alkins-who score 20.4, 19.6 and 15.6 points per game, respectively.

"They grinded us up on defense", he said.

The Ducks ended with 15 offensive rebounds on the night, almost doubling ASU's total. The Ducks continued to focus on things they could control, namely efficient rebounding and crisp passing.

The Sun Devils don't have an answer physically for players like McIntosh, who kept OR in a game that it, quite frankly, didn't deserve to be in with some of its sloppy plays early on.

Roman Sorkin was a spark off the bench for the Ducks against the 11th-ranked Devils. He hit one three pointer en route to scoring 13 points.

In 13 years as a head coach, he's taken seven teams to the NCAA Sweet 16 and four to the Elite Eight. Head Coach Dana Altman had the team focused in practice earlier this week as OR had what he said was the best practice so far this season.

"He used his physicality, he just crashed", Hurley said. "Try and go a little bit longer with a possession and move the ball a little more". Similar to that ranking, Oregon State trails only Florida.

The Sun Devils mustered up only 13 assists on the night, which is down from their season average.

"If we get those rebounds, we have a chance to push", Hurley said of the offensive rebounds for OR contributing to the lack of transition looks for his team. "I don't know if were completely making each other better on offense right now". Washington State's Borislava Hristova was the Pac-12 player of the week after averaging 32.5 points per game last week.

Arizona senior point guard Parker Jackson-Cartwright, who's averaging 7.6 points per game and a team-high 4.9 assists, certainly isn't underestimating the Beavers, especially after their 80-77 loss to Colorado in Boulder last Saturday.

All those ASU free throws that kept them in the game came from OR fouls, which caused the Ducks to miss important players throughout certain portions of the game.

The freshman is one of just three players in the nation (Duke's Marvin Bagley III and Saint Mary's Jock Landale) to average at least 20 points and 10 rebounds per game while shooting over 60 percent from the field.
