Guards Lead The Way As WSU Beats OSU 70-57

CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) — Taylor Rochestie had a career-high 24 points, Derrick Low added 21 and 21st-ranked Washington State handed Oregon State its 14th straight loss, 70-57  Thursday night at Gill Coliseum.

Lathen Wallace had 13 points for the Beavers, whose losing streak matched the 1995-96 team for the longest in team history. Marcel Jones added 10 points, all in the second half.

The Cougars held the Beavers to 32.1 percent shooting.

The game was tied at 18, but the Cougars went on a 11-3 run before halftime. The Beavers shot just 22.2 percent in the first half, making only one field goal in the last 10 minutes.

The Beavers have owned Washington State at Gill Coliseum in recent years, winning eight of the last nine matchups coming into the game, but the Beavers are enduring a nightmare season that has included the dismissal of sixth-year coach Jay John midseason and installation of assistant Kevin Mouton as interim coach.
