Oregon State: All of the Beavers losses have been by single digits this season.

Stevie Thompson's 3 after two Dickerson foul shots got the deficit to three.

Beaver men's basketball wins both games over weekend.

Stephen Thompson Jr. was off target on a floater that could have won the game with seconds left in regulation, then missed two free throws that likely would have sealed the contest in overtime.

MiKyle McIntosh and Victor Bailey Jr. each had 13 points, and Kenny Wooten added 10 points and eight rebounds. However, the Cougars couldn't get any closer than nine throughout the fourth quarter.

"I just popped out to the right side and they didn't seem to see me and Aleah made a flawless pass", McWilliams said. She finished with 29 points and nine rebounds. Gulich attempted a 3 but the shot was well shot.

With 5.1 seconds remaining in the second quarter, Melgoza took the inbounds pass coast to coast only to get rejected by Gulich in the lane.

Pritchard had 19 points and 10 assists, and Troy Brown Jr. also had a double-double to lead OR past Washington State 84-57 on Sunday night. The Ducks led by 10 at half and continually extended the lead in the second half behind double-doubles from Pritchard (19 points, 10 assists) and Brown (16 points, 10 rebounds) and more highlights from Wooten (three blocks, 10 points and several alley-oops).

Borislava Hristova led the Cougars with 21 points and Chanelle Molina chipped in 10.

OR and Washington State tipoff at 5 pm Pacific Time on ESPNU. Back-to-back 3s by Corosdale and Tudor gave the Beavers a 65-26 lead about 3½ minutes into the second half.

But Matisse Thybulle responded with a 3-pointer with 31 seconds left to trim the margin to 94-93. He made 7 of 8 shots while his teammates were just 4 of 19.

The Cougars continued to struggle from the floor, hitting just 4 of 17 attempts.

The Huskies shot 83 percent from the free-throw line compared to 50 percent for the Beavers, and Thompson missed two from the charity stripe that could have won the game with 3.3 seconds left in the first extra period. But he didn't get the shot off before the horn, and the game headed to overtime.

"If somebody had told me we were going to hold them to 13 points in the first half, I'd of thought they were insane", Daugherty said. Junior Katie McWilliams filled the stat-sheet with 11 points, six rebounds and five assists, while fellow junior Taylor Kalmer went for 10 points, seven rebounds and six assists.

Wynn pulled her forwards all the way out to the three-point line, but the trio of redshirt junior Hannah Johnson and freshmen Khayla Rooks and Fapou Semebene weren't able to make Oregon State pay as often as Washington needed them too. The Cougars were 7 for 15 from the field (3 for 4 from 3) and never trailed.

Oregon State dominated the glass, holding 27-15 edge at the half. The Beavers finished the game with 18 3-pointers, a new program record, which matches the Pac-12 record for most triples in a conference game.
