Arizona women's basketball (4-17, 0-10) fell to Oregon State (13-9, 5-5), 64-50 on Sunday at McKale Center. The loss was the Wildcats 14th straight regular season loss in conference play. UA was eliminated in the opening round of last year's Pac-12 Tournament in Seattle.

Senior Kama Griffitts and freshman Breanna Workman both led the Wildcats with 11 points each.

Griffitts shot 3-of-5 from the field and 5-of-6 from the free-throw line.

Workman visited the free-throw line 10 times, earning seven of her points there.

With the double-digit scoring, Griffitts' marked her 11th game in double figures this season and Workman posted her sixth.

All seven Arizona players scored.

Senior Carissa Crutchfield dished out five assists for her seventh game with five or more assists.

"It's difficult because anytime you go through a tough stretch like this in basketball or in life there is added pressure on you to do better," Arizona Head Coach Niya Butts said. "That's why adversity is a great separator. You either answer the adversity or you fold and give up, and those are not options.  We are going to keep grinding and hopefully good things will happen."

Freshman Sydney Wiese and sophomore Deven Hunter led the Beavers with 13 and 12 points, respectively.

"Coach Butts just tells us to keep working," Griffitts said. "She fights and works really hard at what she does. We need to come in and work as hard as she does and stay on the same page. We just need to work together as a team and strive for the win. We're only going to win if we play two good halves. We need to put it all together."

Arizona will have a quick turnaround to take on No. 15 in Tempe, Ariz. on Tuesday, Feb. 4 at 7:30 p.m. The game will be televised live on the Pac-12 Networks.
