Beavs Bounce Bulldogs 76-70, Reach Fourth Straight Sweet 16
Oregon State needed overtime against Boise State on Saturday, but a big fourth quarter kept the Beavers from elimination Monday night.
Gonzaga made the Corvallis crowd nervous in the beginning of the final period. No. 4-seeded Oregon State used a 17-9 run to take an eight point lead late.
The Bulldogs would not go away, but the Beavs made their final four free throws to keep No. 5 Gonzaga at bay.
Oregon State’s 76-70 win sends the team East to take on the top-seeded Louisville Cardinals in Albany, NY on Friday.
