SEATTLE – Noah Dickerson scored 15 of his 25 points in the second half to help Washington hold off Oregon State 79-77 in a Pac-12 Conference game Thursday night.

Dickerson scored twice underneath to key a 7-0 run that put Washington up 70-64 with 3:45 remaining.

Freshman Jaylen Nowell had five of his 12 points in the final 1:02 to help preserve the victory for the Huskies (20-10, 10-7). Matisse Thybulle and David Crisp also had 12 points each for Washington, which shot 57.1 percent (24 of 42).

Tres Tinkle had 22 points, including a final 3-pointer at the buzzer. Stephen Thompson Jr. added 19 points and Drew Eubanks 15 for the Beavers (14-15, 6-11) who lost their 22nd consecutive road game.

Oregon State, which trailed by as many as 11 in the first half, quickly erased a 42-37 halftime deficit by making four of its first five second-half shots, pulling even at 44-44 on Ethan Thompson’s 3-pointer.

The Huskies shot 60 percent in the first half, including one stretch where they made 10 of 11 shots, en route to the five-point lead at the break.

Crisp fed Dickerson underneath for a jam to put Washington up 42-31 with 2:12 left in the half, but Oregon State closed with a 6-0 run.

Thybulle had 12 first-half points on 4-of-5 shooting, 3 of 3 from beyond the arc. Oregon State stayed closed by turning a 16-10 rebound advantage into 11 second-chance points.
