PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) -- Ariel Thomas' tie-breaking 3-pointer with 28 seconds remaining helped Oregon beat Washington State 70-68 Friday night to win its first Pac-12 game of the season.

Thomas, who finished with 20 points, 11 rebounds and eight assists, also made two free throws in the closing seconds as the Ducks (3-16, 1-6 Pac-12) ended an eight-game losing streak and won for the first time in nine games away from home this season.

Amanda Delgado led Oregon with 21 points, all scored from behind the 3-point line where she was 7 for 13. Thomas made four of Oregon's 12 3-pointers, while Washington State had four.

Jillian Alleyne had 15 points and 13 rebounds for the Ducks.

Tia Presley led Washington State (5-13, 1-6) with 16 points. Lia Galdeira scored 13 points for the Cougars.
