    Arizona 86, Oregon State 65

    TUCSON, Ariz. (AP)-- Arizona's Jessica Arnold scored a career-high 21 points -- 15 coming in the first half -- as the Wildcats led Oregon State in a 86-65 victory on Saturday.

    The Wildcats (14-5, 6-3) made 10 of their first 13 shots to take a 27-8 lead with 11:42 left in the first half. Arnold was the catalyst, scoring 11 during this stretch, including three 3-pointers.

    Arnold's previous high was 17 against St. Mary's on Nov. 12.

    The Wildcats also received 15 points a piece from Shawntinice Polk and Natalie Jones. Dee-Dee Wheeler added 14 and Danielle Adefeso had 14.

    Oregon State (5-13, 1-8) was led by the 21 points from Kim Butler. Anita Rivera had 11.

    While Arizona was hot from the start, Oregon State struggled. The Beavers made only three of their first 11 field goals and finished the first half shooting 30 percent.

    Oregon State trimmed an Arizona 24-point halftime lead to 17 after the opening moments of the second half before the Wildcats went on a 16-3 run, sparked by Arnold, to go ahead 69-35 with 14:17 left.

    Besides Arnold's shooting exploits, Wheeler made a pair of driving lay-ins and a jumper during the Wildcats' scoring outburst.
