Player Grades: Arizona vs. Oregon State

Arizona defeated Oregon State on Thursday due in large part to numerous individual performances. Read on to see's individual grades for the win.

Brendon Lavender: The aggressive Lavender shot the ball well and it was a big difference in the game for the Wildcats. The senior guard has been shooting 56 percent from deep on the season and he hit 5 of 6 three-pointers and 6 of 7 overall from the field for 18 points. He played a smart game and really deserved the minutes he got, despite not being in the game in crunch time.

Grade: A+

Kyle Fogg: Offensively, Fogg only had a couple of miscues on the fast break, but other than that really got it done for Arizona. Fogg scored 23 points on 7 of 17 shooting and 3 of 8 from deep. His shooting early made it seem like Arizona would run away with the game, but he and the team slowed down just a bit. Later, Fogg came up big from the line, making all six of his attempts.

Grade: B

Nick Johnson: After the bad week in Los Angeles, you knew that Johnson would regain his confidence and he did so with a 19 point outing. He got himself going from beyond the arc and hit 3 of 4 for the game. Johnson could not help close out the Beavers as he only shot 6 of 11 from the free-throw line, but his effort was strong.

Grade: B

Josiah Turner: The freshman point guard was not aggressive in looking for his shot and while that part of his game is still developing, Turner did run the offense well for most of the game. He had four assists, but got careless on occasion and had three turnovers as well.

Grade: C

Solomon Hill: Hill should be a matchup nightmare for some of the power forwards in the Pac-12 Conference, but he was unable to take advantage against Oregon State Thursday night. He rebounded well (8) and had five assists, but was not aggressive offensively at all and was often careless. He had three turnovers and to boot, may have escalated at situation at the end of the game that could have caused Arizona so much more.

Grade: D

Jesse Perry: He seemed to have a mismatch on the offensive end of the floor as well, but did not take advantage of it. Oregon State's big men did not want to guard on the perimeter but Arizona could not take advantage. Perry was 2 of 7 from the field and only 2 of 7 from the line and finished with six points. He had eight rebounds, but Arizona needs more from him.

Grade: D

Jordin Mayes: His defense late in regulation was bad and he did not do too many good things offensively. Mayes had two assists to three turnovers and had five points on 1 of 2 shooting. He has to make better decisions and look for his jump shot a bit more.

Grade: D
