Oregon State won in bizarre fashion last night as Stephen Thompson Jr. sank three free throws with just one-tenth of a second remaining to give the Beavers a 71-69 victory over Utah. The Utes had taken the lead with 2.2 seconds left when Jarmal Reid fouled Utah’s Jordan Loveridge. Loveridge then sank three free throws to give the Utes the lead and what appeared to be victory. But, when Thompson took the inbounds in the back court and tried to launch a half court shot, he was fouled, sending him to the line. The Beavers host Colorado Saturday evening at 5:30, airtime is 5 o’clock on KCFM
