Dominant rebounding leads the way in UCLA win over Oregon State

Arizona State has a big matchup against rival Arizona at home this week, and then will have to take on the OR schools on the road, before finishing the season at home against the Bay Area schools.

A late 11-2 UCLA run proved to be a hard hurdle as the Bruins pulled away from the Beavers for a 75-68 Pac-12 men's basketball win at Pauley Pavilion.

For the Beavers, forward Alfred Hollins led the way with a career-high 24 points on 7-of-11 shooting, knocking down three of his five attempts from long range and adding seven points at the free-throw line.

That run by the Bruins (18-8, 8-5) put OSU down 11.

The game was tied nine times in the second half. Metu was fouled and missed both free throws with 31 seconds to play.

Hollins opened the second half as he did the game on the offensive end.

The Buffaloes (15-10, 7-6 Pac-12) are riding a three-game win streak heading into their matchup against the Washington schools on the road, and with an easily attainable win against Washington State in reach, if the Buffs can steal a win against the Huskies, they'll be right in the thick of the conference race.

In the second half, the Bruins would once again open up a double-digit lead only for the Beavers to claw back, coming within as few as four points in the final minute of the game before a pair of free throws from freshman guard and a block by Welsh sealed the win.

With 1:24 to play and trailing 68-67, Metu pulled down an offensive rebound and passed to Stewart who drilled a 3-pointer to give the Trojans a 70-68 lead.

Welsh, the Bruins' talented 7-footer, scored four quick points after Eubanks went to the bench.

Oregon State coach Wayne Tinkle says Holiday is possibly the "toughest guard" in the conference who excels at defending ball screens. Two road losses may move them to 9 in the Pac-12 with four games to play.

OSU made just one field goal in a stretch of almost five minutes. Pritchard added 17 points and Troy Brown had 11 as the Ducks shot 42.6 percent from the field.

Oregon State outrebounded the Bruins 45-37 in January, but the Bruins, trying to rediscover their toughness, returned the favor Thursday 51-33.

The Bruins shot 37.9 percent (22 of 58) overall, their second-lowest percentage of the season.

Starting with scoring the first point of the game, McIntosh's performance was a silver lining for the OR team.

Late-game execution has plagued the Ducks for much of this season, though, and Oregon's troubles found the spotlight once again.

McIntosh and Pritchard ended the first half, each leading the team with 10 points.

Oregon State fell behind by 13 (32-19) before it was able to gain some momentum.

The game would then come down to the wire.

The dominance on the glass helped the Bruins overcome a shaky shooting performance that included 14 missed free throws and a 39.3 percent mark from the field, including just 4-of-21 shooting from 3-point territory.

The Bruins went to halftime with a 25-14 rebounding advantage. They couldn't grab a win against either school, and it looks like they are slipping at the wrong time at this point in the season.
