Beavers fall to Cardinal, 83-60 at home

Oregon State continues their home stand against Cal on Saturday.

Corvallis, Ore. -- Oregon State men's basketball had an opportunity to assert themselves as the clear No. 2 in the Pac-12 standings. All it would have taken was a win over Stanford. But the best laid plans often go awry, and on Thursday night at Gill Coliseum, everything went awry for the Beavers. 

Stanford's front court of Oscar Da Silva and Josh Sharma combined for 43 points on 17-22 shooting as the Cardinal rode a 53% 3 point shooting effort to an 83-60 win over Oregon State. The Beavers three point struggles were especially apparent for the brothers Thompson, Stephen Jr. and Ethan, who shot a combined 1-10 from beyond the arc. While both still managed to finish the game in double digits, the Cardinal length was too much to overcome. 

"I looked at the clock and there was 4:41 left in the game," said Oregon State head coach Wayne Tinkle. "They'd only scored 20 points in the second half. So our defense picked it up for a little bit. Then we just gave them point-blank layups, dunks, and too many free throws. I think our guys' spirit was lost a little bit because we weren't making plays on the other end."

"I think we had a lot of shots that we normally make around the basket that didn't go in that inhibited us from going on a run there," Thompson Jr. explained. "Just things we can take care of, things we can manage looking forward to next game."

That next game is Saturday against a Cal team that's winless in conference. Maybe the perfect time to get the shooting back on track.
