Women's basketball scores: No. 21 Arizona St. uses big run to stun No. 9 Oregon St.

March is here to bring the madness in women's basketball

TEMPE, Ariz. — Kianna Ibis had 20 points and eight rebounds and No. 21 Arizona State had a 17-0 run in its 66-54 victory over No. 9 Oregon State on Friday night.

Iris Mbulito scored 10 points, Charnea Johnson-Chapman had six points and a season-high 12 rebounds, and Reili Richardson added eight points to help the Sun Devils (19-8, 10-6 Pac-12) end a two-game losing streak and sweep the season series. On Jan. 20, Arizona State handed the Beavers their only home loss of the season.

Mikayla Pivec had 18 points for Oregon State (23-6, 14-4), and Aleah Goodman had 16. The Beavers had won three in a row and four of five.

Arizona State scored the final four points of the first half to take the lead for good, then scored the first 13 points of the second half for a 41-25 lead. The Sun Devils made 11 of 16 field goal attempts in the third quarter, while the Beavers missed their first four attempts and committed three turnovers.

The Beavers trimmed a 17-point deficit to nine at 53-44 when Arizona State failed to score in the first five minutes of the fourth quarter, but Ibis scored eight straight points to make it 58-44.

Ibis made three free throws after Oregon State coach Scott Rueck was ejected with 2:19 remaining after receiving two technicals fouls. He has to be restrained by members of his coaching staff after receiving the second.

Oregon State guard Destiny Slocum, who leads the team with a 16.7 scoring average, scored three points and missed all five of field goal attempts before fouling out. She played only four minutes in the first half after picking up two quick fouls.

BIG PICTURE

The Sun Devils are fighting No. 25 UCLA for the fourth seed and a first-round bye in the Pac-12 Tournament. Oregon State has won at least 26 games in each of the last four seasons and is on track to reach that plateau again with at least three games remaining — the regular-season finale at Arizona and first-round games in the Pac-12 and NCAA tournaments.
