Beavers down Cougars to earn first Pac-10 Win

The crowd at Gill Coliseum started chanting, "It's all over," with just over a minute remaining in the game, and they were right.

The OSU men's basketball team took it to the Cougars of Washington State, winning the game 63-48, to earn first-year Beaver's Head Coach, Jay John his inaugural Pac-10 victory.

Senior, Philip Ricci led the Beavers with 17 points and a career-high 15 rebounds.

Fellow seniors, Jimmie Haywood and Brian Jackson, also had solid games. Haywood had 13 points on 4-of-9 from the field, including 3-of-5 from behind the arc. Jackson added 11 points, 10 rebounds, and 3 blocks.

The team from the Palouse was led by sophomores, Chris Schlatter and Thomas Kelati's 12 points a piece, Kelati chipping in with 7 rebounds.

Senior, Cedric Hughey, added 10 points and team-high 8 boards.

The Beavers distributed the ball very well, collecting 20 assists on 23 made field goals. Lamar Hurd and J.S. Nash led the team with 5 and 4 respectively.

With 6:35 remaining in the first half, Philip Ricci stole the ball on the perimeter, and took it all the way for a two-handed dunk to give OSU a 19- 17 lead, and starting an 11-4 run, which he later ended with an inside bucket and free throw, to end the first half.
