Beavers Cruise To Civil War Victory



CORVALLIS, Ore. – Four players scored in double figures and Oregon State used a strong second half to cruise to a 76-64 win over Oregon on Friday night in the 349th edition of the Civil War.
Tres Tinkle posted his seventh career double-double with a game-high 19 points and 12 rebounds to lead the Beavers (10-5, 2-1 Pac-12).
Drew Eubanks had 15 points, eight rebounds and two blocked shots, Stephen Thompson Jr. added 16 points and Seth Berger scored an Oregon State career-high 12 points.
Thompson Jr. became the 40th Oregon State player to score 1,000 career points when he converted a fast break layup in the first half.
Kendal Manuel, who missed the last two games win a groin injury, scored all nine of his points in the second half, going 3-for-5 from the field and 2-for-2 from beyond the arc.
The Beavers held a slim 30-29 halftime advantage before exploding for 46 second-half points to snap a three-game losing streak in the series.
Oregon (11-5, 1-2) was led by Paul White, who scored 16 points off the bench.
