Oregon State got a big rivalry win over Oregon in their last outing, and even though they've had a couple of head-slapping slip-ups recently (Kent State and Utah) they're staying in games even when they lose. Instead, Ira Lee's three-point play on a breakaway stuff and Trier's 3-pointer cut the lead to 22-21 with 3:11 to go, and neither team could score again before halftime. The team now enters a key stretch of the season with road games against Arizona State and Arizona before returning home for three games against USC, UCLA and Oregon State.

Ayton and Trier were selected to the Wooden Award list midseason top 25 this week.
