Taking a Look at Coast Radio Sports…


Pac 12 basketball

Joseph Young’s reverse layup attempt at the buzzer was blocked and the hard-charging Oregon Ducks were stopped Saturday afternoon 74-72 by Arizona State.  The Sun Devils built a 20-point lead in the second half, but Oregon put together a furious rally behind Young, using a 34-11 run to briefly take the lead with five minutes remaining.

In Tucson yesterday, the Beavers sustained their worst loss of the season, 76-54, to the Arizona Wildcats.  Oregon State has now lost 30 of the last 31 games they’ve played at the McKale Center.

It’s Civil War basketball week… Oregon and Oregon State will meet Sunday afternoon at Matthew Knight Arena.
