Making an average 28% of their field goals, the Devils trailed Oregon at the half, 26-18. Blocks of time passed by without any successful shot from either team throughout the first twenty minutes, however, co-captains Emily Westerberg and Aubree Johnson turned things around for Arizona State later in the game.
While Johnson collected a game-high 17 points, Westerberg and Briann January followed with 14 and 13 points consecutively.
In a much livelier second half, Arizona State held the ducks to 43 total points for nearly three of the final five minutes of the game, while they scored six more points to increase their commanding lead.
It was January who gave the Devils the lead with a three-point shot just seconds after a successful three pointer by Danielle Orsillo with ten minutes remaining.
Though ASU performed well late in the game to steal the win, it was Kaela Chapdelaine and Carolyn Ganes who were go-to players for Oregon that played well in the first half. Both had a team-high ten points apiece. However, with 26 turnovers by the Ducks, ASU found a plethora of opportunities to score.
To finish off the regular season home games ASU with face Oregon State this Saturday at Wells Fargo Arena, 4p.m. mountain time.
