HOOPS: Beavs lose OT heartbreaker
the staff of BF.C
Posted Feb 7, 2014
OREGON STATE WILL lament the end of regulation more than they will the overtime period in an 86-82 loss at Arizona State on Thursday night. On their final four possessions in the second half, OSU had the chance to take the lead. The first three failed, the last one was a tying bucket. The Beavs' D then allowed the Sun Devils 22 points in overtime, just four less than ASU scored in the first half.
Oregon State allowed two ASU guards, Jahii Carson and Jermaine Marshall, to score 23 and 25 points, respectively. It didn't start out that way.
The Sun Devils missed 16 of their first 22 shots. And while Oregon State opened up a lead during that span, it seemed a small one, 28-21, given ASU's inability to put the ball in the basket.
Pac-12 scoring leader
had 26 points -- 24 after halftime -- to lead the Beavers (13-9, 5-5). Nelson scored with 19 seconds left in regulation to force overtime.
had six points each in the first half to overcome Nelson's absence, as the Beavs led 29-26 at the break.
Brandt finished with 13 points for Oregon State, Hallice Cooke poured in 13 in going 3-for-4 from beyond the arc.
had "only" eight points but he had a monster night on the boards, with 17 rebounds. Collier had four boards, all on the offensive glass.
After Arizona State opened up a seven-point lead midway through the second half, Oregon State ran off six straight points, the last four from Devon Collier in the paint to tie it at 55 with 5:48 remaining. The Beavers trailed 63-62 but failed to score on three straight possessions before Nelson's tying layup, (Marshall made one of two free throws with 27.8 seconds left just before Nelson's hoop.)
Carson got to the free throw line 18 times and converted 13 of them, and that riled Oregon State coach
"That guy shot 18 fouls shots," said Robinson. "I'm going to try not to get myself in trouble here."
He had a point. Oregon State went to the line 18 times, connecting on 12. ASU went to the charity stripe 40 times, hitting 25 attempts.
Oregon State is now 1-4 on the road in Pac-12 play.
Nelson, averaging 21.8 points a game, was held to two points in first half, on 1-for-3 shooting but picked up two fouls and sat for about the last 10 minutes.
Oregon State next plays Sunday, against No. 2 Arizona in Tucson.
