Pac 12 CBB - Oregon St vs Arizona - Preview and Pick

By: Tony Corleone     Date: Jan 30, 2016

Oregon St travels to Arizona in a big PAC 12 match up Sunday night. Arizona just saw the longest home winning streak of 49 games come to an end last time out as they lost 83-75 to #23 Oregon. They allowed the Ducks to shoot 51.6 percent. Arizona also lost 74-73 at California last Saturday and are in danger of dropping 3 straight games for the first time since 2010. However, Oregon State has lost nine straight road Pac-12 games. They have lost 4 of 5 after falling to Arizona St 86-68 on Thursday. The Beavers have also lost 31 of their last 32 visits to Tucson. One important thing to note is that Arizona is averaging 13.4 turnovers in conference play to match the second-worst mark, while Oregon State is forcing an average of 13.6 turnovers. Arizona should have a big edge on the glass. The Wildcats are third in the country in rebound margin at plus 11.6 while the Beavers are last in the conference at minus 2.1. Gary Payton II has been the Beavers best player as he has averaged 16.7 point per game, 8.1 rebounds per game and 5.4 assists per game. Arizona has more of a balanced attack as they have 4 players averaging more then 10 points per game. I think the Wildcats will have a very big advantage on the glass tonight, while limiting turnovers and playing some strong defense and will bounce back with a good effort.

Play: Arizona -10.5
