have been since the division was
Oregon's loss Friday night came
in the second half. At half time, the
Webfoots, leading by a 24-15 mar
gin. looked to be in complete com*
mand of the situation.
But a tighter OSC defense, a
changed Beaver offense, plus a
sharper shooting average for Ore
gon State and a lower one for Ore
gon changed the picture.
Oregon led through the second
half until 9 minutes and 40 seconds
remained. Then OSC tied it up at
32-32. Three minutes later it was
36-35 for OSC. Tight ball control by
the Beavers preserved the lead.
