A Closer Look: Beavers pull the upset

Arizona is upset again on the road. For the first time in eight meetings, the Beavers get the best of the Wildcats. For Jay John it is a big win over his former boss.

PLAYER OF THE GAME
David Lucas. The former walk-on scored 22 points and pulled down nine rebounds. Lucas was 10-14 from the field.

PLAY OF THE GAME
For Oregon State fans it was one of the numerous transition dunks the Beavers got after breaking the press. For the Wildcats it was Hassan Adams' drive to the hoop where he double pumped, drew the foul and got the bucket.

TURNING POINT
Oregon State goes on a 10-0 run midway through the second half and never looks back.

NO BROOMS NEEDED
For the sixth time in Lute Olson's tenure at Arizona, the Wildcats failed to sweep a single conference road series. The last time was the 1998-99 season.

50% CLUB
For the fifth straight game the Cats shot better than 50%.

IT'S ABOUT TIME
It was Oregon State's first victory over a ranked team since 2000. That year they beat then-No. 3 Arizona 70-69 in overtime at Gill Coliseum.

ANOTHER STREAK SNAPPED
The Wildcats had won seven straight against the Beavers.

AT LEAST ONE WILDCAT WON
Oregon State coach Jay John is an Arizona grad and a former Lute Olson assistant.
