TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Gabe York made six 3-pointers and scored 24 points, both career highs, and No. 18 Arizona bounced back from a rare home loss to beat Oregon State 80-63 on Saturday night.
Ryan Anderson added 13 points and 12 rebounds for the Wildcats (17-5, 5-4 Pac-12), who were coming off an 83-75 loss to No. 23 Oregon on Thursday night that snapped Arizona's 49-game home-court winning streak.
Tres Tinkle scored 16 for the Beavers (12-8, 3-6), who stayed with the Wildcats until the final 10 minutes. Olaf Schaftenaar added 14 points and matched his career high with four 3s. Gary Payton III had nine points, seven rebounds and six assists for Oregon State.
The win was No. 300 for coach Sean Miller in his career, first at Xavier and now at Arizona.
