BOX SCORE   RECAP

Arizona State 55, Oregon State 47

TEMPE, Ariz. - Ja'Tavia Tapley scored 14 points, Robbi Ryan and Reili Richardson added 10 each and Arizona State got its second straight upset, beating No. 3 Oregon State 55-47.

The victory finished a memorable weekend for the Sun Devils (13-4, 3-2 Pac-12), who also beat No. 2 Oregon 72-66 on Friday night. It also capped a tough week for the sport's elite teams: No. 1 UConn, Oregon and Oregon State all lost and there will almost certainly be a shake-up in the national rankings on Monday.

Oregon State (15-1, 3-1) couldn't overcome a brutal shooting performance. The Beavers shot 19 of 61 (32%) from the field, including 2 of 20 from 3-point range.

Arizona State led 39-32 after the third quarter thanks to Jayde Van Hyfte's three-point play with 2 seconds left. She grabbed an offensive rebound and made a layup while being fouled.

The Sun Devils never trailed in the fourth quarter, though Oregon State tied it once at 45 on Destiny Slocum's 3-pointer with 2:31 left. Arizona State responded with the next eight points and hung on for the win.

Arizona State is the first team to earn two straight wins over AP top-five teams in the regular season since 2010, when Stanford beat No. 4 Xavier and No. 1 UConn.

Arizona State jumped out to a 13-4 lead into the first quarter, holding Oregon State scoreless for the final 8 minutes. The Beavers shot 2 of 14 in the quarter and missed all five of their 3-point attempts.

Oregon State's scoreless drought continued well into the second quarter before Mikayla Pivec grabbed an offensive rebound and made a layup with 6:49 before halftime. The bucket did little to stop the offensive ineptitude - Arizona State led 24-14 at halftime after the Beavers shot 6 of 32 from the field (18.8%), including 0 of 10 on 3-pointers.

Pivec and Slocum scored 13 points apiece for Oregon State. Taylor Jones added 11 points and 13 rebounds.

Oregon State had its closest win of the year on Friday, needing a jumper with 1.4 seconds left to beat No. 18 Arizona 63-61. But it had no such magic on Sunday, missing several shots down the stretch.
