Jan. 10, 2009
TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) -- Chase Budinger scored 24 points and made four straight free throws after the ejection of Oregon State coach Craig Robinson, and Arizona defeated Oregon State 64-47 on Saturday afternoon.
Oregon State closed to within 55-47 with 2:14 remaining. That's when Robinson was whistled for two technicals for arguing with the officials. Arizona (11-5, 2-2 Pac-10) scored nine straight points after the technicals.
Jordan Hill scored 15 points and had 11 rebounds for Arizona, which won its 27th straight at home over the Beavers, a streak that began in 1982-83. It was Oregon State's 17th consecutive Pac-10 road defeat.
Lathen Wallace led the Beavers (6-8, 1-3) with a season-high 17 points.
