Fenner's 24pts Not Enough as Pack Falls to Oregon St.

Posted: Updated:

Junior D.J. Fenner matched his career-high with 24 points on 7-of-14 shooting and senior Marqueze Coleman scored 12 points, all in the second half, but Oregon State held on to beat Nevada 66-62 on Saturday afternoon.

Freshman Cameron Oliver posted 12 rebounds and a career-high five blocks for the Pack (5-3, 0-0 MW). Gary Payton II had 16 points and eight rebounds for the Beavers.

With the Pack trailing 10-8 after a three-pointer from Payton II, sophomore Eric Cooper Jr. responded with his first 3-point basket of the afternoon to give Nevada an 11-10 advantage with 10:43 remaining in the first half. The Beavers took the lead on the next possession but Cooper countered with another three to put the Pack back on top, 14-12. Cooper finished with 11 points on 3-of-8 shooting from three.

Cooper’s second 3-pointer sparked a 6-3 run that put Nevada on top, 20-15, with 6:53 to go in the first but the Beavers chipped away at its deficit and took a 30-24 lead going into the locker room.

OSU led 34-28 early in the second stanza before Fenner caught fire and scored seven points in an 8-0 run that gave his team its first lead of the half, 36-34, with 15:16 to go in the game.

The Wolf Pack led 53-52 with six minutes left before the Beavers used a 13-6 spurt, capped by Stephen Thompson Jr.'s 3-pointer to stretch the Beavers lead to 65-59. Coleman answered with a 3-pointer to pull Nevada to 65-62 with 1:28 left.

Fenner missed a 3-pointer and a layup, and then fouled Olaf Schaftenaar who split a pair of free throws to cap the scoring.

Coleman and Cooper Jr. missed 3-point attempts to end it.
