OREGON ST 71, UCLA 67
By BY JIM BESEDA
CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) -- Freshman Hallice Cooke scored 14 of his
season-high 20 points in the second half and scored the go-ahead
basket with 6:12 to play as Oregon State defeated UCLA 71-67 on
Eric Moreland finished with 11 points and 14 rebounds, and Angus
Brandt added 13 points as the Beavers (13-8, 5-4 Pac-12) closed
out the first half of league play with their first home sweep of
the Los Angeles schools since the 1989-90 season.
Kyle Anderson led the Bruins (17-5, 6-3) with 18 points and nine
UCLA trailed 67-66 and had the ball when Jordan Adams plowed
into Brandt as he drove to the basket and was called for an
offensive foul, spoiling a chance for the Bruins to regain the
lead with 14.2 seconds to play.
Roberto Nelson and Cooke hit two free throws each in the final
12 seconds to seal the victory for the Beavers, who are above
.500 at the midway point of the league season for the first time
since the 1998-99 season.
The Bruins led 52-47 when Cooke sparked an 18-2 run that gave
the Beavers a 65-54 lead with 2:29 to play.
Trailing 16-14, UCLA's Bryce Alford made a 3-pointer from the
left corner to spark a 13-0 run that gave the Bruins a 27-16
lead with 6:13 to play in the first half.
Oregon State started working the ball inside and outscored the
Bruins 13-4 over the closing 5:41 of the half, pulling within
31-29 on Brandt's layup with 41 seconds left.
Nelson, the Pac-12's leader scorer, had Oregon State's first six
points on a pair of 3-pointers and then didn't score again until
the 7:49 mark of the second half when he hit two free throws to
pull the Beavers within 52-49.
Adams, who entered the game ranked sixth in league scoring, went
0 for 7 from the field in the first half and had two points at
the break. He finished the game with six points off free throws
while going 0 for 9 from the field.
The Beavers led 43-40 with 12:14 remaining when UCLA's Alford
tangled with Devon Collier under the OSU basket.
Officials first called Alford for a personal foul, but then went
to the video replay and called a technical foul on Collier for
elbowing Alford in the mouth. Adams made both technical free
throws, touching off a 12-4 run over the next 3:58 that gave the
Bruins a 52-47 lead.
