Off to one of the best starts in program history, Arizona State plays at Oregon on Thursday night at Eugene, Ore., hoping to extend its winning streak to three games.

The Sun Devils (13-3, 4-1 Pac-12) have at least 13 wins in their first 16 games for just the seventh time since the 1945-46 season. It is the team's first 13-3 start since 2017-18 and the record is tied for the best 16-game start under head coach Bobby Hurley.

Arizona State has not been 4-1 in conference play since the 2007-08 season.

"We are battling for the top of our league right now; we've got to protect our home court," said Arizona State's Devan Cambridge Jr. after a 73-65 victory over Washington on Sunday. "We've got to bounce back as we go on the road for the next two games. It gives us confidence."

Cambridge (10.6 points per game) is one of four regular players who average in double figures in scoring for the Sun Devils. DJ Horne's 12.1 points per game lead the team.

Oregon (9-7, 3-2) hasn't had the type of season the program is used to under head coach Dana Altman, with a bumpy run in nonconference play when several players were out due to injury. The Ducks are closer to full strength than they have been all season, and a 70-60 upset victory at Utah on Saturday is a possible sign of better days ahead.

The Ducks are led by center N'Faly Dante, who had 17 points and 12 rebounds at Utah for his fourth double-double of the season. Dante averages 12.9 points and 7.0 rebounds per game, while Will Richardson is the team scoring leader (14.6 points).

Oregon has won seven of the last eight meetings at home against the Sun Devils. The Ducks' win at Utah came two days after a 68-41 blowout loss at Colorado.

"The guys were really disappointed in themselves, so it shows we have some pride," Altman said, according to Duck Territory at "It was a big game for us."

Arizona State Sun Devils vs. Oregon Ducks Recap JAN 12TH 2023

Desmond Cambridge Jr. led four players in double figures with 21 points and Arizona State dominated in a 90-73 rout over Oregon Thursday night in Eugene, Ore.

D.J. Horne had 15 points on 5-of-9 shooting from 3-point range, Devan Cambridge added 14 points and Warren Washington had 10 points and eight rebounds for the Sun Devils, who have won three in a row overall against the Ducks and are 5-1 in Pac-12 Conference play for the first time since the 1980-81 season.

Arizona State (14-3) made 52.4 percent of its shots for the game and 13 of 29 3s for a 44.8 percent clip. The Sun Devils led for all but 79 seconds.

Will Richardson had 16 points and N'Faly Dante 14 for the Ducks (9-8, 3-3). Oregon trailed by as many as 29 in the second half and was down 46-29 at halftime.

A 20-6 run inside of the first 10 minute turned a 6-5 Oregon lead into a 25-12 Sun Devils advantage, and the Ducks could never recover. Two dunks and three 3-pointers punctuated the run.

A Horne 3 and back-to-back transition baskets from Devan Cambridge made it 44-20 with 4:02 to play until halftime. Richardson hit three consecutive 3s to cut into the lead before the break.

But the second half was more of the same. Arizona State started with a 10-2 run to take a 25-point lead. Austin Nunez drove for a layup with 10:50 to play for a 73-44 Sun Devils lead.

Oregon responded with an 11-0 run and forced an Arizona State timeout, after which head coach Bobby Hurley sent his starters back out on the court. That group made sure the Sun Devils coasted to victory.
