CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) — Ethan Thompson scored all 12 of his points in the final 8:37 to help Oregon State pull away for a 68-66 win over Washington State.
Thompson scored on a driving layup with one minute left, passing Dave Gambee (1,468 points, 1955-58) for 10th place in career points at Oregon State.
That basket gave the Beavers a five-point lead and Thompson added a pair of free throws with 25 seconds left to cap an 11-0 run at 66-58.
Ryan Rapp had 15 points and DJ Rodman had 14 points, both career highs for the Cougars.
The Cougars were down 8 with :25.5 left in the game.
WSU came back within 2 in the final seconds. Isaac Bonton missed a free throw on purpose to give WSU a chance to force overtime with a 2-pointer or hit a 3 for the win. Rodman's 3-piont shot was off and a little late.
