A Player's Preview: Oregon State

CORVALLIS, OR -

#14 Arizona opens their final Pac-12 road trip of the season tonight at Oregon State.

The Wildcats are the Pac-12 Conference's best road team since the league grew from 10 to 12 teams prior to the 2011-12 season with a conference road record of 40-21 (.656). UA and Oregon are the only programs with winning conference road records during that span.

With one more win, senior Dusan Ristic will tie Kaleb Tarczewski and Matt Muehlebach as the all-time winningest player in Arizona history at 110 wins in a career. Ristic enters Thursday with a career record of 109-23 (.826) and in sole possession of third place on UA's all-time wins list.

Ristic continues his best stretch of basketball as a Wildcat. In his last 10 games, the center is averaging 14.8 points and 7.9 rebounds per game while shooting 67.7 percent from the floor and 81.3 percent at the foul line. 

The senior has also connected on five of his six three-point field goal attempts during this streak.

UA has split its last six trips to the state of Oregon with three of those splits coming on a loss at Oregon State. 

Tipoff is 7 p.m. Tucson time and the game can be seen on FS1.
