Lorenzo Romar was hopping mad at times during Washington’s 64-50 loss at Oregon State on Sunday.

The UW coach expressed frustration with the officials, but mostly he directed his anger towards the Huskies who were beaten in just about every way that mattered in front of 9,114 at Gill Coliseum.

It was Washington’s fifth straight defeat, which ties the longest losing streak since Romar took over 13 years ago.

Here’s the game stories in the Oregonian, Associated Press and News Tribune.

For some reason, the Huskies stopped playing on Oregon State’s final possession, which allowed Gary Payton II to cap the scoring with a two-handed dunk that captured in this photo gallery by the Oregonian.

Oregonian columnist Jason Quick chimed in with a few thoughts and wrote: “On Sunday, Washington looked like an irritated picnic guest, swatting away flies. Eventually, they might as well have rustled a bees nest they way OSU was swarming. OSU forced a shot clock violation, and two other desperation shots to beat the clock. And Washington became so panicked under the pressure the patrons in the front rows were protecting themselves from errant passes as much as they were watching the game.”

And here’s the box score and updated season statistics.

MONDAY MORNING LINKS:

— Oregon State forward Victor Robbins, currently suspended from the team for 10 games, was cited for driving under the influence early Sunday morning.

— Oregon senior guard Joseph Young dropped close to a triple-double on Washington State with 29 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists as the Ducks raced away to a 95-72 victory at Matthew Knight Arena. Dwayne Benjamin added 25 points for the Ducks (17-7, 7-4 Pac-12), who built a 52-28 halftime lead on the way to their fifth win in six games. He finished 10 of 11 from the field and was perfect on three three-point attempts. Benjamin started in place of leading rebounder Jordan Bell, who served his one-game suspension due to an incident that took place on campus earlier this week.

— It was a tough homecoming for Washington State coach Ernie Kent, who coached his alma mater Oregon to five NCAA Tournaments and two Elite Eights during 13 seasons. The Cougars fell behind early, trailed by as many as 32 points early in the second half and never mustered much of a threat during the 23-point rout. Dexter Kernick-Drew led WSU (10-13, 4-7) with 18 points off the bench. Josh Hawkinson added 14 and DaVonte Lacy had 13.

Marcus Allen scored four of his 10 points in the final four minutes and grabbed three of his game-high 11 rebounds in the same span and Stanford overcame a halftime deficit to beat USC 70-62 at Maples Pavilion. Chasson Randle scored 17 points, Stefan Nastic added 15 and Anthony Brown and Rosco Allen added 11 points apiece for the Cardinal (16-7, 7-4 in the Pac-12), who ended a two-game losing streak.

Katin Reinhardt scored 19 points and Jordan McLaughlin added 18 for USC (9-14, 1-10), which lost its ninth straight game.
