Tinkle scores 21, Oregon State beats Pepperdine 82-67

CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) Oregon State's Kylor Kelley acknowledged he was a little surprised Pepperdine kept attacking the rim, especially given the night he was having.

''But they're just making strong moves, trying to foul me out, so props to them,'' he added.

Kelley set a school record with nine blocks and added 10 points and nine rebounds as Oregon State beat Pepperdine 82-67 on Monday night.

Tres Tinkle had 21 points, seven assists and five steals and Stephen Thompson Jr. added 20 points for the Beavers (7-3), who broke a two-game skid.

Colbey Ross had 15 points and eight assists and Eric Cooper Jr. also scored 15 for the Waves (6-6).

Oregon State's marksmanship returned in a hurry after the team shot poorly in two losses away from Gill Coliseum.

The Beavers shot 54 percent from the floor, including 8 of 19 on 3-pointers, compared to 37 percent for Pepperdine.

''Same shots. They just went in,'' Oregon State coach Wayne Tinkle said.

Pepperdine coach Lorenzo Romar said the Waves hadn't played against Oregon State's type of length this season. ''Throughout the game it bothered us at the rim in terms of contesting shots,'' he said.

''I don't think we'll face many, if any, shot blockers like that the rest of the season,'' Romar added.

Oregon State also outrebounded the Waves 38-24.

The Beavers went on a 12-3 run, fueled by five straight points by Alfred Hollins, to take a 32-23 lead at the 5:39 mark. Hollins banked in a 3-pointer at the halftime buzzer to give Oregon State a 46-36 lead.

The Beavers took over the game with a 15-3 surge to start the second half, capped by a Kelley dunk with 12:25 remaining.

Hollins finished with 17 points and seven rebounds for Oregon State.

BIG PICTURE

Pepperdine: Romar returned to coach the Waves this year, and the squad's six wins already match their win total from last season. He also coached Pepperdine from 1997 to 1999, and he led a turnaround of the program back then. . Pepperdine is 0-4 on the road this season. . Last year's leading scorer Kameron Edwards has already missed eight games, including the last seven.

Oregon State: Ethan Thompson had scored 20-plus points in his previous three games, but was hampered by foul trouble and finished with one point in 13 minutes. . Kelley also set an Oregon State record with multiple blocked shots in 10 straight games. The junior college transfer entered Monday ranked third in the nation and first in the Pac-12 with 3.4 blocked shots per game.

STAYING AGGRESSIVE: Despite Kelley blocking and altering numerous shots, the Waves continued to attack the rim. Romar said maintaining that aggressiveness was necessary. ''If you back off, all of the sudden, they win in more areas than one. We have to continue to come at them,'' he added.

RIM PROTECTOR: Zach Reichle, who had 13 points for Oregon State, said it was huge for perimeter defenders to have a rim protector like Kelley. ''You don't want to get beat, and you get beat sometimes, you know that, but he's always going to be there to help block that shot. It definitely takes some pressure off you.''
