CORVALLIS, Oregon (Ticker) -- Arizona swept the schools of Oregon by cleaning the glass.
The fourth-ranked Wildcats produced another strong effort on the boards and cruised to an 80-65 Pac-10 Conference victory over Oregon State as Isaiah Fox grabbed 10 rebounds and freshman Hassan Adams led a balanced attack with 14 points.
Arizona (9-1, 2-0 Pac-10) opened conference play Thursday with an 81-72 triumph over ninth-ranked Oregon and has now swept the Oregon schools on the road for the first time since the 1997-98 season.
The Wildcats outrebounded Oregon, 45-25, Thursday and owned a 49-33 edge on the glass against Oregon State on Saturday. They have outrebounded eight of 10 opponents this season.
"I don't think we played extremely well, but we did another outstanding job on the boards," Arizona coach Lute Olson said. "We've been getting better on the boards, and you can see it. Dennis Latimore is doing a great job off the bench (pulling down seven rebounds) and Isaiah is doing a good job. Channing (Frye) tonight did not get the minutes he normally gets (17 minutes Saturday) but he had seven boards."
Rick Anderson scored 13 points and Jason Gardner added 12 for Arizona, which is off to its first 2-0 start in Pac 10 action since 1999-2000.
The Wildcats also extended their winning streak over the Beavers to five in a row and have claimed seven of their last eight encounters. They have not lost to Oregon State since a 70-69 overtime setback at Gill Coliseum on March 2, 2000.
Philip Ricci had 24 points but could not give Oregon State coach Jay John a win in his first meeting against Arizona. John spent the last four years with the Wildcats as an assistant.
"I know that the guys were giving everything that they had and that is the kind of effort that we want," John said. "What I am seeing (against Arizona) is that we have another level. We played against some teams in the preseason that had a different pace. I think we did play the best team in the country today and we were able to outscore them in the second half (40-37)."
Oregon State (7-4, 0-2) started conference play with a 67-47 defeat to Arizona State on Thursday and has lost three of its last four.
Arizona used a 19-2 run to take a 21-11 lead early in the first half and took a 43-25 advantage into the intermission. Anderson, again starting in place of injured forward Luke Walton, scored 11 points in the first half.
Frye contributed 11 points and Latimore had 10 to go with their rebounding numbers as the Wildcats shot 44 percent (32-of-72) from the field, but converted just 4-of-19 (21 percent) from the 3-point arc. Arizona, which has outshot nine of 10 foes this season, also made 12-of-14 attempts from the free throw line.
David Lucas tallied 12 points in 19 minutes off the bench for Oregon, which shot 42 percent (28-of-66). Lucas had seen just three minutes of action before Saturday.
"David responded well and is capable of things," John said. "David works hard in practice every day. David has been playing better and playing harder."
Beavers' starting forward Brian Jackson played just 12 minutes after re-aggravating an abdominal strain.
"This is the injury that he has been dealing with all year," John said. "It is in his abdominal area and is like a muscle pull that has just never gone away."
