Nash's 27 points, 13 rebounds lift Oregon State over Arizona 

CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) -- Casey Nash tied a career-high 27 points and grabbed 13 rebounds, and Mercedes Fox-Griffin tied a school record with 15 assists Saturday as Oregon State held off a late Arizona run for a 69-62 win.

Fox-Griffin added 13 points and teammate Judie Lomax had 12 points and six assists for Oregon State (7-8, 2-4 Pac-10), which never trailed.

Joy Hollingsworth had 17 points and Jessica Arnold added 16 for Arizona (7-12, 1-6). Nash, the Pac-10's leading scorer with 19.9 points per game, capped an 8-2 Oregon State run to give the Beavers a 45-35 lead with 13:26 left.

Arizona used an 11-3 run to cut Oregon State's lead to 59-54 with 5:10 remaining. A 3-pointer by Arnold with 1:01 left closed the gap to 66-62. But the Wildcats didn't score again.

Oregon State overcame a slow start to build a double-digit lead in the first half. Ashley Allen and Nash scored all of Oregon State's points in an 11-2 run that put the Beavers ahead 15-4 with 11 minutes remaining.

Arnold scored six points in the final 31 seconds including a 3-pointer at the buzzer as the Wildcats closed the Oregon State lead to 31-24 at halftime.

Nash had 13 points and nine rebounds in the first 20 minutes.
