TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- Chanse Creekmur hit six 3-point shots and
notched a career-best 24 points, helping Arizona State overcome
a sloppy first half to beat Oregon State 76-66 Saturday night.
Arizona State (6-11, 2-3) had lost six of seven and appeared to
be heading toward another disappointment after turning it over
13 times in the first half.
The Sun Devils shot their way out of trouble, hitting 59 percent
from the floor to win for just the third time in 10 home games.
Kyle Cain added 16 points to help Arizona State overcome the
loss of leading scorer Trent Lockett, who left with a right leg
injury in the second half.
Oregon State (11-7, 1-5) started slowly and never recovered. The
nation's fifth-best scoring team shot 37 percent and hit 4 of 21
from 3-point range to lose for the fifth time in six games.
Devon Collier led the Beavers with 21 points.
