CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) -- Abe Lodwick set career highs with 23 points and 12 rebounds Wednesday to lead Washington State to a 72-55 win against Pac-12 rival Oregon State in a College Basketball Invitational semifinal at Gill Coliseum.

Reggie Moore added 22 points for the Cougars (18-16). Eric Moreland had 14 points and 11 rebounds for Oregon State (21-15). Washington State advances to the CBI's best-of-three championship against Pittsburgh, which beat Butler 68-62 in overtime in the other semifinal Wednesday.

The Cougars played most of the game without all-conference senior forward Brock Motum, who was helped off the floor less than two minutes in with a right ankle injury.

Oregon State played without starting guard Ahmad Starks, who sat out with an illness.
