What to Know
The #3 Arizona Wildcats are 10-1 against the Oregon State Beavers since January of 2016, and they’ll have a chance to extend that success on Thursday. Arizona and Oregon State will face off in a Pac-12 battle at 7:30 p.m. ET at McKale Memorial Center. The Wildcats are out to keep their 13-game home win streak alive.
If there were any doubts why Arizona was a heavy favorite Saturday, the team quickly laid those doubts to rest. They took their contest against the Washington Huskies this past Saturday by a conclusive 92-68 score. Arizona’s guard Bennedict Mathurin did his thing and had 25 points along with five boards.
Meanwhile, Oregon State found themselves the reluctant recipients of an unpleasant 90-64 punch to the gut against the Colorado Buffaloes on Tuesday. Guard Jarod Lucas just could not get things rolling his way, finishing with only seven points on 2-for-12 shooting in his 29 minutes on the court.
The Wildcats’ win brought them up to 22-2 while the Beavers’ loss pulled them down to 3-20. Two defensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: Arizona have been holding their opponents to a field goal percentage of 36.90%, which places them second in college basketball. On the other end of the spectrum, Oregon State has allowed their opponents to shoot 46.70% from the floor on average, which is the 10th highest shooting percentage allowed in college basketball.
