CORVALLIS, Ore. – Gary Payton II threw down an emphatic dunk in the second half to highlight Oregon State’s win over Washington.

His slam came as the Beavers overwhelmed the Huskies with a 43-point second-half performance en route to a 64-50 win on Sunday.

“We were just moving the ball, the ball wasn’t sticking. Everybody was getting easy buckets at the rim,” said Payton, who led all scorers with 17 points while adding five steals.

The victory gave the Beavers a 14-0 record at home to start the season, a school record.

OSU is 16-7 overall (7-4 Pac-12) for its best record over 23 games since the 1989-90 team started 19-4. That was the last time it went to the NCAA tournament.

Malcolm Duvivier added 14 points for the Beavers.

Andrew Andrews had 14 points for the Huskies (14-9, 3-8), who have lost five straight.

The loss also snapped a four-game winning streak in the series against the Beavers.

Washington didn’t score for nearly the first six minutes of the game, getting its first point on the second of two free throws from Shawn Kemp Jr.

But coach Lorenzo Romar wasn’t just concerned about the slow start: The Huskies finished with 22 turnovers.

“They do a good job with their defense,” Romar said, “but at the same time, we had too many turnovers. Thirteen turnovers in the first half – that’s too much.”

It was the second matchup between the famous offspring of former SuperSonics teammates, Shawn Kemp and Gary Payton. The Huskies won the first one, 56-43 in Seattle on Jan. 15.

Kemp Jr. finished with 13 points for Washington.
