Sage Indendi set the Oregon St. season record for three pointers, surpassing the mark set by Felicia Ragland with the first of her three three pointers on the night, her 70th. Indendi sank another to put the Beavers up 28-27 three minutes into the second half, and elevated the record to 72, but it wasn't enough to overcome a nine and a half minute stretch in the first half during which Oregon St. scored only one basket.
Arizona's Ify Ibekwe sank two free throws with .8 seconds left to ice the win for the Wildcats, after the Beavers had missed three shots in the final minute, and lost the ball when Ibekwe grabbed a rebound and shuffled three steps without drawing a traveling call.
Shooting cost the Beavers the game, as Oregon St. shot only 32% from the field, and 42% from the free throw line. It was the Beavers 12th. single digit loss of the season. The Beavers also suffered 21 turnovers.
Davellyn White led Arizona with 16 points, and Ibekwe turned in a 15 point, 16 rebound double double for the Wildcats.
Earlysia Marchbanks led Oregon St. with 16 points, and Indendi finished with 13. El Sara Greer tied a school season record, with two blocked shots that raised her season total to 85.
