    Oregon, which was seeking its 10th win in a row, fell to 17-3 overall and 6-1 in the Pac-12.

    Oregon State improved to 14-4, 5-2.

    The No. 7 Ducks played without guard/3-point specialist Lexi Bando, who was ruled out indefinitely with a foot injury shortly before tip-off.

    The No. 18 Beavers made 13 of 26 from 3-point range to Oregon's 4 of 9.

    The Beavers hit all seven of their 3-point tries in the first quarter, banking one in, to lead 28-17.

    OSU made an eighth in a row from beyond the arc before missing, and led 42-36 at the break. Ionescu and Tudor each had 18 points in the half, with Tudor making all five of her tries from 3 and Ionescu 7 of 7 on free throws.

    The Beavs had a 53-50 lead through three quarters, and the Ducks pulled even at the 6:17 mark of the fourth and went ahead by one at 5:30.

    Hebard's steal and fast-break layup gave Oregon a 71-69 lead with 54 seconds remaining.

    Mikayla Pivec of Oregon State made a 3, though, and Ionescu missed a 3. The Ducks had to foul intentionally, but were at only two team fouls, so needed to do so three times before they could get OSU to the foul line. With 19.8 seconds left, OSU's Katie McWilliams made two shots for a 74-71 lead.

    Hebard got fouled going to the basket and cut the lead to 74-72 with 13.7 seconds left, making one of two at the line.

    Tudor went one of two at the foul line with 11.6 seconds to go, reclaiming a three-point lead for Oregon State.

    Ionescu hit a long 3 with 3.5 seconds remaining, and Pivec missed a 3 at the buzzer.

    The teams will meet again at 5 p.m. Sunday at Matthew Knight Arena to conclude their regular-season Civil War series.
