Wildcat Breakdown: Pac-12 Hoops and COVID-19

Oregon State on January 14 became the first team to come off an extended pause in team activities and have to play a conference game. That opponent for the Beavers was the Arizona Wildcats and UA blew OSU out on their home court 98-64.

The Beavers had just two days of practice coming off their pause which begs to ask, is two days enough.
