TUCSON, Arizona (Ticker) -- Salim Stoudamire buried five 3-pointers, including three during a key run in the first half, as 12th-ranked Arizona rolled to a 109-75 victory over Oregon State in a Pac-10 Conference matchup.
Stoudamire made 7-of-9 shots from the floor for the high-powered Wildcats, who shot 64 percent (43-of-67) overall, including 12-of-26 from 3-point range, and made 11-of-12 free throws.
"I know I can get off at any given time," Stoudamire said. "Tonight my teammates picked it up too. Making the extra pass was the key."
"Salim got 20 points out of only nine shots," Wildcats coach Lute Olson said. "That's thanks to making the extra pass and getting the open shot. Guys sometimes get sick of the little things, but the little things are what win ball games."
The game was tied midway through the first half before Arizona (12-3, 4-2 Pac-10) exploded for a 20-4 run. Hassan Adams scored six of his 20 points early in the run on three fast-break layups as the Wildcats began to outrun the Beavers.
"We just picked up the defense and were having fun playing Arizona basketball," Adams said. "We were making stops and getting up and down the court."
Stoudamire assisted on Adams' layup before burying three 3-pointers. He sank a shot from the arc with 1:46 left to cap the burst and give Arizona a 48-32 cushion.
Oregon State (8-8, 2-4) ended the run with the final basket of the first half, but Arizona scored the first seven points after halftime. Channing Frye's three-point play gave the Wildcats a 55-36 cushion less than two minutes into the second half and the Beavers got no closer.
Adams made 9-of-11 shots and Andre Iguodala scored 19 points on 9-of-12 shooting as the Wildcats cruised to their ninth victory in their last 10 meetings with the Beavers.
Adams grabbed 10 rebounds and Iguodala added eight for Arizona, which had a 39-28 edge on the glass. The Wildcats also had 29 assists on 43 baskets while committing only 10 turnovers.
Chris Stephens had 16 points to lead Oregon State, which was held to 41 percent (30-of-73) shooting, including 9-of-29 from 3-point range.
"We didn't play horrible," said Beavers coach and former Wildcats assistant Jay John. "We could have burned the clock and played that way, but I wasn't going to do that. I don't think many teams would've beaten (Arizona) tonight."
J.S. Nash scored 15 points and reserve Jim Hanchett had 12 and 10 rebounds, but the Wildcats shut down David Lucas - the Beavers leading scorer - who had just six points.
"One of our goals was to limit the number of looks Lucas would get," Olson said. "He got only five shots, although part of that was due to foul trouble."
