EUGENE, Ore — Ethan Thompson scored 19 points, Warith Alatishe had 14 points and 16 rebounds and Oregon State beat No. 21 Oregon 75-64 on Saturday night to end the Ducks’ home winning streak at 28 games.

Jarod Lucas added 13 points, and the Beavers (8-5, 4-3 Pac-12) had a 43-23 rebounding edge en route to their third straight victory.

Thompson, a senior guard, joined Gary Payton as the only players in school history with at least 1,400 points and 400 assists. He was 3-for-11 from the field, but made 12 of 14 free throws

Eugene Omoruyi had 15 points and nine rebounds for Oregon (9-3, 4-2), playing without four projected starters. Freshman guard Jalen Terry had 13 points, and Eric Williams Jr. added 11.

The Beavers broke a 34-34 tie early in the second half with eight straight points and never trailed the rest of the way.

Oregon, which had three games last week postponed due to COVID-19 issues in its program, played without leading scorer Chris Duarte and top rebounder LJ Figueroa, who both tested positive for COVID-19. Oregon also is without starting guard Will Richardson, who has yet to play due to a thumb injury, and center N’Faly Dante, who is out for the year with a knee injury.

BIG PICTURE

Oregon State: After losing 98-64 at home to Arizona last week, the Beavers have rebounded with three straight wins to move above .500 in conference play. Oregon State sits in seventh place in the Pac-12, but just one game out of fourth.

Oregon: The Ducks had just eight scholarship players available in the loss to the Beavers. They hope to get Duarte and Figueroa back when they go on a three-game trip to Los Angeles next week.
