PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) — Ruth Hamblin scored 17 points and Sydney Wiese had 11 of her 16 points in the fourth quarter to help ninth-ranked Oregon State rally past Washington State 54-45 on Sunday.
The Beavers (20-3, 11-1 Pac-12) won their 10th straight game, but only after erasing a 34-28 deficit at the end of three quarters. Oregon State trailed 24-22 at the half and did not take the lead for good until Weise made the second of her three fourth-quarter 3-pointers with 4:59 left.
Standout freshman Borislava Hristova led Washington State (12-11, 3-9) with 22 points. No one else scored more than seven points for the Cougars, who have lost six in a row.
The Beavers shot 35.3 percent from the field and made 17 turnovers. The Cougars sank just 31.6 percent of their shots and had only four assists.
