TUCSON, Ariz. — Arizona center Chase Jeter writhed in agony after landing square on his back before gingerly walking to the locker room.

Four minutes into the game, the Wildcats were without their lone big man, unsure how badly he was injured.

Arizona’s players collectively picked up the slack by crashing the boards and draining 3-pointers, earning a solid victory on the heels of a disappointing loss.

Brandon Williams scored 20 points and the Wildcats (5-1 Pac-12, 14-5 overall) dominated the offensive glass despite Jeter’s scary fall in an 82-71 victory over Oregon State on Saturday night.

Oregon State (3-2, 11-6) shot 51 percent and Tres Tinkle finished with 25 points, but could not keep the Wildcats off the glass. Ethan Thompson added 17 points for the Beavers, who were 4 for 17 from the 3-point arc.
