Oregon State downs Quinnipiac

CORVALLIS — Angus Brandt returned from an injury to score 21 points and lead Oregon State over Quinnipiac 76-68 on Sunday night.

Brandt had missed the previous two games after hyper-extending his knee on Dec. 22. Roberto Nelson added 17 points for the Beavers (8-4) and Hallice Cooke scored 12.

Ike Azotam had 17 points and five rebounds for Quinnipiac (6-5), while Umar Shannon made five 3-pointers on his way to 18 points. Ousmane Drame added 11 points and 12 rebounds for the Bobcats.

Quinnipiac was up 13-8 at about five minutes into the game, but then went nearly five minutes without scoring while allowing the Beavers to take the lead.

Oregon State went up 39-29 after a 3-pointer by Nelson with 2:09 left, and that was the score at the half.
