No Nelson? No problem for Beavs, Brandt
the staff of BF.C
Posted Dec 18, 2013
THE FIRST WORRY was if Roberto Nelson would play due to illness. After that hurdle was cleared, it became a matter of what OSU would do after Nelson was ejected. Enter Oregon State center Angus Brandt, who scored a career high 27 points in the Beavs' 76-67 win.
Towson tried to put together a late charge but the game wasn't as close as the final score would seemingly indicate. The Beavers were comfortably ahead most of the second half, leading by as many as 16 points.
Oregon State led Towson 20-16 when
was ejected after a lengthy delay as the officials looked at video replays. They ultimately determined Nelson had thrown a punch on a camera angle not made available to the viewing audience. He was assessed a flagrant 2 foul.
Towson promptly tied things up and OSU looked dazed. But Oregon State (6-2) used a 17-3 run — with eight in that stretch by
— to open up a 12-point lead at halftime at 41-29.
Towson (7-5) cut the lead to eight at 66-58 with 1:06 left on a 3-pointer and again with 47 seconds left on a layup. But the Beavers made eight of their last nine free throws to secure the victory.
Oregon State got 13 points and seven boards from
Nelson was ejected at the 11:50 mark in the first half after he and Marcus Damas got tangled up and fell to the floor.
Nelson, the nation’s third leading scorer, had a string of 24 straight games in double figures snapped. He came in averaging 24.7 points per game. He scored four points Wednesday before departing the court.
The Pac-12 will review the flagrant 2 and determine whether he will need to miss part of the Diamond Head Classic, which tips off Sunday in Hawaii.
