Collier leads Oregon St past Purdue 66-58
OREGON ST 66, PURDUE 58

NEW YORK (AP) -- NEW YORK (AP) - Devon Collier capped a
high-scoring homecoming with a career-best 27 points and 14
rebounds, and Oregon State held off Purdue 66-58 on Friday in
the third-place game of the 2K Sports Classic benefiting the
Wounded Warrior Project.



Roberto Nelson added 10 points for the Beavers (3-1), who
squandered a 15-point cushion in the second half before taking
over again in the final 2 minutes.



Oregon State dominated the boards 47-36 and overcame an apparent
knee injury to center Angus Brandt, who had nine points and nine
rebounds.



The score was tied at 56 with 2 minutes to play when Collier put
Oregon State ahead to stay by sinking a pair of free throws to
start a decisive 8-0 run.



Eric Moreland made a 3-pointer from the left wing with 58.3
seconds remaining and Collier got free for a dunk 15 seconds
later off a pass from Ahmad Starks.



A free throw by Starks capped the surge, making it 64-56 with
33.9 seconds to go before a scattered crowd in Madison Square
Garden.



Freshman center A.J. Hammons had 20 points and eight rebounds
off the bench for the Boilermakers (1-3), who lost in overtime
to Villanova 89-81 in the semifinals Thursday night after
leading by eight with 1:27 remaining in regulation. D.J. Byrd
added 11 and Anthony Johnson scored 10.



Collier, a junior forward who grew up in the Bronx, scored 21
points Thursday in a 65-62 loss to Alabama.



He spoke after the game about how much he wanted to win and how
great it was to play in front of his family and former coaches
because the Beavers rarely travel to the East Coast.



This time, the limber lefty slithered through the lane for 17
first-half points to help Oregon State build a 39-28 lead on the
strength of a 30-16 rebounding advantage.



Collier's previous career best was 25 points against Hofstra
last season.



Beefy forward Joe Burton scored the first four points of the
second half to make it a 15-point cushion, but the Boilermakers
finally clamped down on defense. On the other end they went
inside to the 7-foot Hammons, who had a big second half.



Hammons scored three straight baskets down low for Purdue and
his three-point play a few minutes later trimmed the deficit to
56-54 with 3:22 to go. Hammons tied it with two free throws at
the 2:17 mark.



Brandt, a 6-foot-10 senior from Australia, went down clutching
his right knee when he was called for traveling at the top of
the key with 5:19 remaining. He stayed down for a few minutes
and a stretcher was brought onto the court, but Brandt was
helped back to the bench. He did not return.



Collier came off the bench and scored 13 straight points for
Oregon State in the first half. He had a trio of three-point
plays to go with a sweet spin move in the lane and an
authoritative dunk.



Starks' 3-pointer capped a 13-5 run that put the Beavers up
22-13 with 11 minutes to go in the first half.



Purdue finished 9 of 16 (56 percent) at the foul line in the
first meeting between the schools.
