Winners of six of their last seven games, the Hawks have been unsafe as they won at Rhode Island in a shocking 30-point drubbing a few weeks ago.
After a 97-85 win over ASU that put the Buffaloes into a Pac-12 Tournament quarterfinal game against Arizona on Thursday, the Colorado coach blamed himself for a late-game skirmish in which only he was actually hurt. But Wayne Tinkle said the redshirt sophomore would be on the floor against the Trojans. "Proud of the guys for the way they hung together". It was the first time all season that UO, an offensive engine that's scored 90 points eight different times this season, failed to hit 20 in the first half - not to mention the first time the Cougars had held an opponent under that number.
The Arizona Wildcats enter as defending champions, and they'll be favored to win again after finishing with the best record in the Pac-12 (14-4), two games better than the USC Trojans.
Tres Tinkle came down on someone's foot early and spent the rest of the game limping. The Cougars attempted zero free throws through the first 33 minutes, but once they got to the charity stripe, it was all they could do to stay off of it. WSU finished 15-of-18 from the line. He knocked down four after that.
"One of our alumni said Colorado has never been a great road squad, but I think a neutral environment is relaxed for us", wing George King said. That game will begin at 1 p.m. Arizona time. "That's comes from mom not me".
Dickerson leads in rebounds with 8.4 while Crisp tops in assists with 3.1 per game. Pritchard hit a three to get OR within 50-49, and MiKyle McIntosh gave the UO men their first lead of the night at 51-50 with 59.7 seconds left. Shavar Newkirk and James Demery are one of the best one-two punches in the league as they could carry this team to plenty of more wins in Washington D.C. His two threes were part of an outstanding shooting performance by Colorado in the first half, as they shot 64 percent.
"It's a blessing to be honest", Ayton said on the Pac-12 Networks broadcast after learning of his awards.
But the Beavers went 5:40 without scoring and the Huskies took a 47-42 lead.
Eubanks dunked and Thompson Jr. added a three-pointer to put the Beavers ahead 55-51 with 3:18 to play. 3-Point Goals-Washington St. 7-22 (Flynn 3-8, Franks 2-4, Acquaah 1-2, Daniels 1-4, Skaggs 0-2, Hinson 0-2), OR 8-22 (Pritchard 4-7, McIntosh 2-5, E.Brown 2-6, Kigab 0-1, T.Brown 0-3).

They then fouled Tinkle who split two free throws, and Crisp missed the half court shot at the buzzer, sending Washington to an early exit. Oregon State went almost 6 minutes without scoring, but Washington couldn't stretch its lead.

Undaunted, Thybulle hit a wide open three after the Beavers' defense was lazy in getting back off a missed free throw.
"It definitely makes things harder", said junior guard Matisse Thybulle, who led UW with 16 points.
A bit later, Dickerson came up with a block, Crisp took the ball on the break, and he whipped a lovely pass to the left corner to Thybulle, who calmly hit his first three of the night.
