Beavs hit 20-win milestone with tourney win
Ahmad Starks went for 16 points, Devon Collier added 12 and Angus Brandt chipped in 10 for Oregon State.
Oregon State shot the roundball at a torrid pace, hitting 62.5 percent of its shots in the first twenty minutes, and then connecting on 68.2 percent in the second half.
OSU reached 20 wins in a season for the 25th time in school history but it was the first time since 1989-90, when the Gary Payton-led Beavs went 22-7. That also was the last time the Beavers were selected to play in the Big Dance.
Inside was where it was at on Wednesday.
Oregon State owned the boards, earning a 37-15 rebounding edge. OSU outscored the Leathernecks 42-20 on points in the paint to overcome what was perhaps the only disappointing part of their night -- 23 turnovers.
TCU (18-14) is next up for the Beavs on Monday in Corvallis.
The game will be televised on HDNet.
