Oregon’s Thompson Hits Last-Second Game-Winner, Sinks Washington
CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) — Stephen Thompson scored 18 points, including a game-winning 3-pointer just before the buzzer, as Oregon State defeated Washington 82-81 on Wednesday night.
Oregon State inbounded the ball with 3.3 seconds left, trailing by two, as Thompson went the length of the court and heaved up a contested shot from the 3-point line. He appeared to shuffle his feet prior to the shot but it was not called.
Drew Eubanks added 17 points with 13 rebounds, Gary Payton II had 15 points, 10 rebounds and five steals, and Tres Tinkle scored 16 for the Beavers (16-10, 7-8 Pac-12).
Thompson, a freshman, also gave the Beavers a 71-69 win against Utah on Feb. 4 when he was fouled on a half-court shot as time expired and made all three free throws.
Andrew Andrews scored 30 points and matched a career-high with six 3-pointers for the Huskies (16-12, 8-8), who have lost five of their last six.
