Arizona started on the front foot, holding Oregon to 31.4 percent shooting heading into the fourth quarter, amassing a 54-41 lead. The Ducks, however, outscored the Wildcats 18-5 in the fourth quarter, tying up the game at 59-59 with 11 seconds on the clock. The game stayed tight through overtime before Oregon sunk the final dagger for the comeback win.
Te-Hina Paopao led the Ducks in points with 24, while Nyara Sabally notched 20 points and 13 rebounds. Sedona Prince was impactful off the bench for Oregon, contributing 16 points, five rebounds, three blocks, two steals and two assists down the stretch.
Both sides played a gritty game, with Arizona committing 23 fouls and Oregon recording 15. The physicality ultimately benefited the Ducks, with the team shooting 22-for-26 from the line.
Following Saturday’s win, Oregon improves to 9-5 on the season, while Arizona falls to 12-2.
