THE BEAVS HAVE lost nine straight against UCLA on the hardcourt and have come up short at Pauley all…
Beavs' upset bid falls short at Pauley
Calvin Haynes led the Beavs with 14 points but was just 4-for-16 from the field.
On the night, the Beavs shot 33.3 percent but were still somehow in position to pull off the upset when Roeland Schaftenaar hit a deuce and was fouled on the play. His foul shot cut it to 50-49 with 4:42 remaining.
Five quick UCLA points looked like a dagger to push the lead back to six, but Calvin Haynes drilled a trey to slice that lead in half. But it was OSU's final charge and the Beavers couldn't capitalize on successive trips down the floor.
Haynes' three was an anomaly on the night for the Beavers. Oregon State shot a stark 3-for-21 (14.3 percent) from three point land against UCLA.
The Bruins, meanwhile, were shooting over 50 percent from the floor against the Beaver D at halftime before OSU mounted their second half comeback bid. Oregon State's 2-3 zone defense seemed a step slow all night, not rotating over quickly enough and giving UCLA too many open looks.
Lathen Wallace was the only other Beaver in double figures, scoring 11. Jared Cunningham scored six points on 3-for-5 shooting.
