Oregon State live game thread

IT’S OVER — UW 95-80.
HACK-A-WROTEN — OSU intentionally fouled Wroten. He sank one of two shots, UW 89-80, 1:36.
BEAVERS SPURT — UW 81-76, 4:53.
ALAMO UPDATE — The crowd went wild when Price scored on a short run to give UW a 28-21 lead. ‘Go Huskies’ is echoing around the building.
STILL IN CONTROL — Wroten delivered a pass through traffic to Gant who cut behind the defense for a two-hand dunk. UW 75-66, 8:05.
GADDY TAKING OVER — Gaddy is blowing pass Starks and driving to the hole on Brandt. He did it on consecutive possessions. UW 66-57, 12:31.
SUBS — Wilcox and Simmons are in for Ross and Gant. UW 58-50, 16:24.
GOING ZONE — The Huskies switched to a 2-3 zone and Brandt drained a three-pointer. UW 58-48, 16:38.
NICE BLOCK — Ross rejected Collier’s layup at the rim. UW 56-45, 17:58.
SECOND HALF — Same starters.
ALAMO UPDATE — Baylor 21-14.
HALFTIME OBSERVATIONS — Good first half for the Huskies. The defense has been phenomenal. Oregon State has nine turnovers and with the exception of two runs late in the first half, the Beavers have been held in check. Cunningham has 13 points and if Washington can contain him, then it would have an easier time.
The Huskies have virtually shut down the other Beavers.
Offensively, Washington has created scoring opportunities with its defense. Gaddy has three assists and he did a nice job of getting a shot for Wilcox late in the first half.
Wroten has been an early star and leads UW with 12 points. Gaddy has nine and N’Diaye, Wilcox and Ross each have six.
Washington is 9 of 9 at the free throw line. Not sure if I’ve ever wrote that sentence. OSU is 7 for 11 at the charity stripe.
HALFTIME STATS — Click here.
HALFTIME — UW 50-39.

ALAMO UPDATE — Robert Griffin III ran a 24-yard TD to put Baylor ahead 21-7 with 48 seconds left in the first quarter.
SLUMPING? — Wilcox is 0 for 6. UW 44-33, 2:46.
BEAVERS RUNNING — Oregon State is on a 13-4 run. I normally don’t get on the refs, but this crew has had better nights. They’re just not in sync with each other. Missing some calls and anticipating others. UW 44-31, 2:46.
DOUBLED UP — Ross threw a no-look pass to Gaddy for a layup. UW 40-20.
FOURTH SUB — Shawn Kemp Jr. is in for N’Diaye. UW 38-20, 5:43.
GOOD PRESSURE — The Beavers have seven turnovers and the Huskies one. UW 36-20, 6:21.
SIMMONS! — Simmons drained a long jumper over Burton before stripping Collier on a would-be layup. The turnover sparked a fast break that ended with Gaddy making a layup. UW 33-18, 7:55.
THIRD ON GANT — Gant just checked in and on his second possession picked up a foul on Cunningham. This one was a good call. Gant is out. UW 29-18, 18:22.
JUST AWFUL — Really tough call on Wilcox who looked as if he got in front fo Cunningham and drew a charge. The refs saw something else. Romar went ballistic and nearly picked up a technical. UW 27-18, 8:50.
TRASH TALKING — OSU’s Eric Moreland blocked Ross’ shot and fouled the UW player. Roberto Nelson and Moreland stood over Ross as he tried to get up and Ross and Nelson exchanged a few words. UW 24-14, 10:28.
THIRD SUB — Martin Breunig is in. He picked up a foul six seconds into the game. The refs have a quick whistle tonight. UW 22-14, 10:31.
ALUMNI BAND — The marching band is in San Antonio so we got the alumni band, which is playing the old hits. UW 17-13, 11:22.
READ THE SCOUTING REPORT — Not sure if Pac-12 folks know Desmond Simmons can shoot the three. He drained a shot behind the arc while his defender stood two feet away and dared him to shoot. UW 17-10, 11:58.
NICE APPLAUSE — The fans are cheering a long pass from Keith Price to Devin Aguilar. Baylor 7-0.
GOOD DEFENSE — The Huskies have forced five turnovers. UW 15-8, 12:57.
TWO ON GANT — Gant picked up his second foul. This could spell trouble because he’s likely to be less aggressive on the glass. Got to say, both calls were ticky tack. UW 12-4, 14:07.
ALAMO UPDATE — Baylor 7-0.
NICE SCHEMES — Coach Lorenzo Romar has Ross on Brandt, a 6-10 center. When Burton tried to back Gant into the post, Ross came down to help out and forced a turnover. Earlier, Ross left Brandt on the perimeter and collected a rebound. He’s freelancing defensively and getting into passing lanes. It will be interesting to see how/if OSU coach Craig Robinson counters this move. UW 10-2, 15:25.
FIRST BASKET — OSU finally scored when Collier sank a layup with 16:21 remaining. UW 8-2, 15:50.
FIRST SUB — Wilcox is in. UW 6-0, 17:00.
GOOD START — Washington is energized and playing fantastic defense. The Huskies have forced two turnovers. UW 6-0, 17:00.
EARLY LEAD — Wroten stole an inbound pass to give the Huskies a 6-0 lead.
FIRST POSSESSION — Wroten lost the ball on a turnover. UW 2-0, 19:02.
LATE-ARRIVING CROWD — The place is about two-thirds capacity. A colleague says it’s half full. This might be all that we get due to the Alamo Bowl. The Dawg Pack is certainly depleted.
DEDICATION — Moritz is being honored by the Huskies. The team gave his mother Marilyn a No. 11 jersey.
NICE MOMENT — The family of Andrew Moritz is on the court looking at the decal dedicated to the former Husky who died of cancer last month.
THE CURSE OF GAS — Mike Gastineau is filling in for Bob Rondeau who is in San Antonio covering the Alamo Bowl. Gastineau’s record with the Huskies is a bit spotty. I should know what it is because I give him a hard time every time he shows up. Would love to hear his UW broadcast one time. … Wait a second, if that were to happen I may not have a job. Never mind.
ON TV — ROOT Sports is carrying the game. Kevin Calabro, Lenny Wilkens and Jen Mueller have the coverage.
STARTING LINEUPS: C.J. Wilcox is coming off the bench for the first time this season. UW: Abdul Gaddy, Terrence Ross, Tony Wroten Jrl., Aziz N’Diaye and Darnell Gant.
Oregon State: Jared Cunningham, Ahmad Starks, Joe Burton, Devon Collier and Angus Brandt.
