FOR ALL THE hand wringing during OSU's non-conference hoops slate, (plenty justified, by the way),…
HOOPS: Beavs drop another close one
But OSU shot just 36.5 percent from the field on the night.
And most of their attempts coming from outside the paint against Washington State (11-3, 1-1).
Calvin Haynes had 17 points and Daniel Deane chipped in 15 for Oregon State plus seven boards. Omari Johnson added another eight on 3-for-5 shooting including 2-of-3 from beyond the arc in his 20 minutes.
Roeland Schaftenaar had a rough night offensively, going 0-for-7 from the floor and finishing with four points in 31 minutes. He did, however, do a nice job on the defensive end, holding WSU's DeAngelo Casto to just eight points and outrebounding the WSU forward 8-to-5.
Oregon State went a perfect 15-for-15 from the free-throw line led by Deane's 6-for-6 effort, but thought they should have gotten at least two more attempts from the charity stripe.
Trailing 62-60 and with 17 ticks left on the clock, Haynes drove to the hoop and collided with WSU freshman Reggie Moore. Haynes was called for the offensive foul.
Haynes and OSU head man Craig Robinson disagreed with the call.
"I continually try to keep a very positive attitude about the officiating in this league, so I'm going to do that...except for today. That's all I'll say," Robinson said.
"I thought it was a bad call," Haynes added. "I didn't think he was set, I thought he was sliding over. I thought for sure I was going to the free throw line for that one."
But Moore after the inbounds made only one of two shots from the foul line and the Beavs had one more chance. Haynes three-point attempt went deep into the well but rattled out, up and over the backboard. WSU then added two more free throws to ice the game.
