Arizona won its second game in a row Saturday, as the Wildcats defeated Oregon State 64-47 at McKale Center.
Chase Budinger scored 24 points and played one of his better games of the season. He consistently got to the free throw line because he was aggressive and was also making long range shots.
Although the UA could have played better, it is nice to see Budinger step up and it is no secret that the Wildcats are much better when he steps up.
The game got interesting at one point when the Beavers cut the score to 55-47 with 2:14 remaining. However, OSU coach Craig Robinson then received two technical fouls and the UA went on to score nine straight points due in large part to Jordan Hill.
Speakinbg of Hill, he scored 15 points and had 11 rebounds for the Wildcats. The win was the 27th straight at home over the Beavers and a sign that the Beavers still have quite a way to go before being a respectable Pac-10 team.
