PULLMAN – Ethan Thompson scored 23 points while dishing out six assists and Oregon State embarrassed Washington State 92-67 on Saturday, the last day of the Pac-12 men’s basketball regular season.
Oregon State (15-15 overall, 7-11 Pac-12) blew things open from the start, going on a 20-2 run over the course of 5:17. The Beavers shot 61 percent from the field in the first half.
Steven Shpreyregin was the leading scorer for WSU (12-18, 4-14) on Senior Night, with a career-high 10 points.
“I didn’t think we did anything right. We didn’t compete. I didn’t think we punched back when we got hit in the mouth,” Cougars coach Ernie Kent said. “Sometimes you just don’t match up well with certain teams, and this is one of those teams for us.”
