Oregon State too much for No. 2 Oregon

Aleah Goodman had 22 points and No. 12 Oregon State snapped No. 2 Oregon’s 17-game winning streak with a 67-62 victory Monday night.

It was just the second loss of the season for the Ducks, who defeated the Beavers 77-68 on Friday in the first game of the rivalry series. Oregon (24-2, 13-1 Pac-12) was hampered by the loss of starter Ruthy Hebard in the first half with what appeared to be a right knee injury.

Destiny Slocum finished with 20 points and the Beavers (21-5, 11-3) extendedtheir winning streak over the Ducks at Gill Coliseum to nine games. Oregon hasn’t won in Corvallis since 2010.

The Ducks moved up a spot to No. 2 in the AP rankings earlier in the day. It is the Ducks’ highest poll position in school history. The Beavers dropped from No. 9 following the loss in Eugene on Friday.

It was a tense final period. A layup by Sabrina Ionescu (Walnut Creek) tied the game 50-50 early in the quarter, and her jumper pulled the Ducks in front with 6:23 left in the game as the Beavers went on a scoring drought.

Mikayla Pivec’s layup for the Beavers tied it again with 4:25 to go. Slocum’s jumper gave them back the lead. Maite Cazorla’s basket cut Oregon’s deficit to 59-57 with 35 seconds left.

#5 Notre Dame 95, #9 N.C. State 72: Arike Ogunbowale scored 22 points and the visiting Irish (24-3, 11-2 ACC) took control with 12 straight points in a dominating third quarter in which Notre Dame scored 34. Freshman Elissa Cunane scored 28 points for the Wolfpack (22-3, 9-3).
