Colorado led by 11 with seven minutes remaining, but Oregon State mounted a 12-2 run to get within one on a three-point play by Rakocevic. The Beavers tied the score moments later on a 3-pointer by McLaughlin, but the Buffaloes withstood the charge after getting a basket from White and a 3-pointer from Johnson in the final 1:18.

The Buffaloes led 23-20 after a layup by White with just over four minutes to play in the first half. Ben Kone's 3-pointer with 55 seconds remaining helped the Beavers carry a 25-24 advantage into the break.

Colorado took a 29-27 lead on a basket by King early in the second half and went up 36-27 when White made a layup to cap an 11-0 run.

Oregon State battled back to cut the deficit to three on a free throw by Kone. Colorado answered with an 8-0 run to take a 46-35 lead on a 3-pointer by Collier. The Beavers made one last push to stir some excitement, but they remained winless in onference play.
