We needed his scoring tonight.
The Ducks' youth took care of the ball: For just the third time this season, OR didn't cross the double-digit threshold with its turnovers. "We missed (Franks') ability to shoot the ball and spread the floor".
But alas, Bell, now a Golden State Warrior, made only a cameo appearance to fire off the team's T-shirt cannon, spraying cotton all over the arena and, in one instance, into Oregon's huddle during a timeout.
Prtichard finished with 19 points and 10 assists, with passing that helped UO shoot 50.0 percent from the field.
An Oregon State turnover set up Washington to go for the win.
"I'd say we're definitely jelling more", Pritchard said. "We kinda moved past the bad loss to Stanford". The Huskies had a big edge at the foul line, making 20 of 24 attempts to the Beavers' 8 of 16.
(9) OR 90, Washington State 79: Ruthy Hebard scored 29 points, hitting all 12 of her field-goal attempts, and the Ducks beat the Cougars in Pullman, to remain in a tie for first place in the Pac-12. MiKyle McIntosh made 3 of 4 free throws to hold onto a 44-37 lead. Drew Eubanks added 18 points, 13 rebounds and four blocks.
Victor Bailey Jr was fouled on a three-point basket pushing the OR lead back to 11 points and the momentum back to the Ducks.
Malcolm Turnbull's dilemma as Barnaby Joyce becomes a liability
The publication reported Mrs Joyce was aware of the affair when she arrived as Mr Joyce's date to the Midwinter Ball in June. Mr Joyce moved out of his Tamworth family home in December and later moved into the townhouse he now shares with Ms Campion.
After narrowly losing to No. 16 Oregon State University Friday night, WSU women's basketball lost again Sunday to No. 9 University of Oregon 90-79, dropping their fourth-straight home game. Kalmer also had seven rebounds and six assists - both career highs. Troy Brown Jr. followed his 21-point night against UW with 16 points and 10 rebounds Sunday, and Pritchard had 19 points and 10 assists to give him 18 assists for the weekend.
"I thought their energy was really good", Altman said of the young group. "They were finishing plays, made play for each other". What followed was a decisive stretch for the Ducks, putting the game away. Washington's lead got to as many as 13 points midway through the second half - 67-54 - but the Beavers outscored the Huskies 26-13 over the final eight minutes to force overtime tied at 80.
"We did what we were supposed to do", said McIntosh, who had 13 points. Katie McWilliams had 11 points, six rebounds and five assists. That was a newsy day for the Ducks a season ago, when OR was selected as No. 2 seed in a season that would lead to another deep tournament run.
"Obviously the next trip to L.A. will define our destiny in the Pac-12 race", Pritchard said. The top four teams receive byes in the conference tournament, avoiding an extra game in Las Vegas next month.
Altman has a career record of 613-322 and also has coaching stints at Kansas State and Marshall.
One way to force your team to play defense is to put on the press and that's exactly what Dana Altman did.
But the Ducks countered the disappointment as well as anyone in the Pac-12 could hope to in this zany season. The Cougars nailed six treys in the first 20 minutes, including three coming from Carter Skaggs.
