Playing suffocating defense, the Ducks jumped out to a 22-point lead in the first half. While the Beavers slowly crept back into the game, Sabrina Ionescu and company never let Oregon State go on a big run. 

The win pushes the Ducks to 18-3 on the season and ensures they hold onto their top spot in the Pac 12 rankings. Now, only time will tell if their loss to the Beavers earlier in the week hurts their No. 7 national ranking.
