Oregon now 1-0 in conference and 11-3 over all led from the start but Oregon State (9-4, 0-1) stubbornly kept the game close up until the last two minute. The Beavers missed four consecutive free throws that could have cut Oregon's lead to eight with a little over two minutes left to go, but it wasn't meant to be.
Oregon shot 48.9 percent in field goal shooting on 23-of-47 shooting including 6-of-13 three-point shooting. The Ducks were also 19-of-24 in free throw shooting. Meanwhile Oregon State was 35.2 percent shooting on 19-of-54 including a dismal 4-of-15 in 3-pointers. The Beavers fared better at the free throw line going 17-of-23.
Oregon had a 35-29 edge in rebounding with both Cook and Jordan Bell hauling down nine boards each. Bell also had five blocked shots and was instrumental early on in Oregon taking a double-digit lead with his defensive play.
Langston Morris-Walker was the high man for the Beavers with 16. Gary Payton II had 12 and Daniel Gomis finished with 10.
