The Oregon State Beavers went down to the wire with the Wildcats, but ultimately came out on top against No. 18 Arizona 63-61.
With 11 seconds left and the game tied, Mikayla Pivec drove into the paint and finished through contact with under two seconds left, scoring what was the game-winning basket with 1.4 seconds on the clock to lift No. 3 Oregon State in Tucson, Arizona Friday night.
"We knew Arizona was going to come out with a great fight," said Oregon State head coach Scott Rueck via a team release. "That's why they have been able to do everything they have done this year. I thought we executed well, but they did a good job of making things tough for us. Mikayla has a knack for making big plays in big moments, and that's what she did today. She made a big time shot for us in a big moment. This was a great team win for us."
Oregon State’s 15-straight victories is the longest winning streak in program history. They join UCLA as the only remaining undefeated teams in the nation. Heading into Friday’s contest, Arizona had 13-straight wins on their home court.
The Wildcats' last two home losses have come to Oregon State.
Pivec finished with a double-double 17 points, 10 rebounds for the Beavs. Freshman Taylor Jones tallied one, too, scoring 12 points and adding 11 rebounds, while Destiny Slocum tallied 13 points and six assists. Kat Tudor was one of four Beavers in double-figures with 10 points.
OSU dominated the boards, holding a 38-27 advantage over Arizona.
The Beavers will finish out their trip in Arizona in Tempe vs. Arizona State, who defeated the No. 2 Oregon Ducks earlier Friday evening.
