Oregon State Upsets No. 14 Oregon 63-53
Oregon State beat Oregon for the 3rd straight time, 63-53, for a huge win over their rivals. Tres Tinkle scored 13 points to go along with 6 rebounds while Ethan Thompson finished with a team high 15 points.
After the Ducks took a 40-30 lead early in the 2nd half, Oregon State clamped down on defense and the Ducks couldn’t buy a bucket. Oregon scored just 11 points in the final 14 minutes as they shot 40 percent from the field and just 30 percent from the 3-point line.
Payton Pritchard finished with 16 points and 9 assists while Chris Duarte was the only other Duck in double figures with 11 points.
This is the 2nd straight week the Ducks have looked abysmal on the offensive side of the ball as it looks like it’s time for Dana Altman to go back to the drawing board.
This was a huge win for Wayne Tinkle and the Oregon State program evident by the students rushing the floor after the win.
Oregon(18-6) and Oregon State(14-9) host the mountain schools next weekend.
