Corvallis, OR. — With a united effort from the players and an impressive shooting percentage of 57 from behind the arc, the Oregon State men’s basketball team defeated the visiting Iowa State Cyclones, 80-74.

For the second consecutive game, senior forward Tres Tinkle led the Beavers in scoring. TInkle tallied 27 points and with OSU trailing by one point, he hit back-to-back three-pointers during the final two minutes Saturday afternoon to give OSU the go ahead lead.

Tinkle also had 11 rebounds, his second double-double this season for Oregon State (2-0).

“I think just being in situations like that before. Coaches always tell us stay ready and stay confident. That was one thing we talked about at halftime was staying confident,” said Tinkle. “But I do credit a lot of it to my teammates. They were able to suck in the defense and I was able to get free. So it’s nice playing with playmakers that can get me easy shots.”

Iowa State, the Big 12 tournament champion three of the past six years, trailed for much of the game, but briefly took the lead on two occasions during the final five minutes. However, thanks to a collective effort from players on and off the Oregon State bench, the Beavers were able to rally in front of a home crowd of 6,173 strong and earn their second win of the season.

“It was such a united effort. Contributions from so many people and that is what our team has to do,” said head coach Wayne Tinkle. “And gosh dangit, let’s not drop from here. I mean when this place is nuts, our team plays at a different level.”

The Beavers will play the Oklahoma Sooners next at 8 p.m. on Tuesday at the Moda Center in Portland for the inaugural Phil Knight Invitational.
