TUCSON, Arizona (Ticker) -- Salim Stoudamire gave the fans at the McKale Center something to remember him by.
The senior set a school record with nine 3-pointers en route to 31 points as No. 11 Arizona closed out its home schedule with a resounding 91-70 victory over Pac-10 Conference foe Oregon State.
"I've been in a rhythm for a while now, and I just wanted to come out and continue it," Stoudamire said. "I wanted to play good in front of the home crowd. I wanted to go out with something special.
"When I don't hesitate, when I just catch and shoot, it usually goes in. My coaches get on me when I get mad when I miss a couple shots, then I get mad at myself. ... I'm just trying to stay positive, and if I miss a couple shots, I just come back and keep shooting. In the end, the percentages will even out."
On senior day, Stoudamire dropped in six 3-pointers in eight attempts in the opening 20 minutes, including four straight in the last 2 1/2 minutes as the Wildcats (23-4, 13-2 Pac-10) built a 45-33 halftime lead on their way to a 23rd straight home triumph against the Beavers (14-11, 6-8).
"It didn't start hitting me until right before the game that this was the last home game," Stoudamire said. "I kind of got upset. It means a lot that my family came. They've always supported me."
His eighth 3-pointer came with 11 1/2 minutes left and his record-breaker pushed the margin to 76-49 one minute later. He, along with fellow senior Frye, left the game at the next deadball situation and did not return.
"Salim has the hot hand," point guard Mustafa Shakur said. "When someone is as hot as him, you do everything you can to get him as many touches as possible.
"I think everyone came out knowing that we needed to play tough. We knew we had to keep playing the way we've been playing. I didn't know that Salim was even close to the record until he actually got it."
Stoudamire, who is leading the nation in 3-point shooting at 56 percent, finished 10-of-17 from the floor with 14 attempts coming from the arc.
"As a team we wanted to play hard for the seniors," junior forward Hassan Adams said. "Salim works on his shooting too hard not to have almost perfected it. He has had a great attitude towards the team."
The previous school record was eight by Jason Gardner against Kansas on December 1, 2001.
Frye added 15 points and 11 rebounds and Adams chipped in 13 and 10 for Arizona, which overcame 19 turnovers to finish 15-1 at home this season.
"It was kind of sad because this was my last home game," Frye said. "I am happy about how we played for the most part and that all the fans came out. I can't settle for this. I want to go further and do bigger and better things."
Nick DeWitz and Jason Fontenot scored 16 points and David Lucas added 15 for Oregon State, which has lost two straight after a three-game winning streak.
After DeWitz opened the game with a 3-pointer, Arizona got eight points from Frye during a 14-0 run over the next three minutes. Two free throws by Stoudamire increased the margin to 21-7 with 14 1/2 minutes to play before DeWitz scored five points during a 13-2 Beavers' spurt over the next four minutes.
