CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) Terrell Brown Jr. scored 27 points and Washington turned back Oregon State 82-72 on Thursday night despite being without head coach Mike Hopkins.
With Hopkins in COVID-19 protocol, assistant Will Conroy stepped in as head coach. And the Huskies (9-7, 4-2 Pac-12 Conference) stepped up to win their third-straight game.
There were 14 lead changes in a first half that finished with the Beavers up 38-36. OSU put together a 6-0 run - back-to-back 3-point plays by Glenn Taylor Jr., and Dexter Akanno 15 seconds apart - for a 34-29 lead. It was the largest spurt and biggest lead of the first half that saw both teams shoot at least 50%.
