Jarod Lucas led five Oregon State players in double-figures scoring with 19 points, Warith Alatishe finished with 15 points and 11 rebounds, and the Beavers cruised past Washington 91-71 Thursday in Corvallis, Oregon.
The balanced approached allowed Oregon State (9-7, 5-5 Pac-12) to post a season high in scoring against a Division I opponent. The Beavers scored 114 points in a rout of NAIA program Northwest University on Nov. 27.
Lucas' 5-of-9 shooting from 3-point range set the pace, as Oregon State knocked down 11 of 24 as a team. Ethan Thompson made 3 of 7 en route to 16 points, and Zach Reichle hit 2 of 4 in a 17-point night.
Reichle was also 7 of 7 from the free-throw line, three of which came in a crucial run for the Beavers.
Hameir Wright made a 3-pointer with 2:39 to go before halftime, pulling Washington within five points. But Wright fouled Reichle on a 3-point attempt during the ensuing Oregon State possession, kicking off a 10-0 Beavers run.
During the burst, which spanned 1:49, Alatishe came from the help-side for a spectacular block on Washington's 7-foot-4 center Riley Sorn.
The Huskies (3-13, 2-9) closed the gap to 10 points in the early second half before a 12-2 Beavers run effectively put the game away. Oregon State led most of the final 16 minutes by at least 16 points, save a brief Washington run that cut the gap to 12.
The Beavers pushed their advantage to as many as 24 points.
Fueling Oregon State's multifaceted scoring was its unselfish ball movement. The Beavers had assists on 25 of their 32 successful field goals. Reichle led the way with eight, while Thompson had seven.
Roman Silva joined in the Oregon State scoring flurry with 14 points before fouling out.
Washington's Marcus Tsohonis led all scorers with 22 points. Erik Stevenson added 14 points, and Jamal Bey scored 13. Tsohonis and Wright shot a combined 4-of-7 from behind the 3-point line, while the rest of the Huskies went just 1-of-13.
