HOUSTON (AP) - Ethan Thompson and Kylor Kelley each scored 23 points and Oregon State beat Texas-San Antonio 88-78 on Wednesday night for its seventh straight win.

Thompson shot 8 of 11 from the field, and Kelley was 7 of 8 as Oregon State (9-1) shot 56% overall and made 25 of 39 free throws.

Tres Tinkle finished with 11 points, and Sean Miller-Moore had 10 for Oregon State.

Jhivvan Jackson, who came in as the nation’s leading scorer at 25.2 points a game, scored 28 points on 10-of-21 shooting for the Roadrunners (4-7). Keaton Wallace added 21 points and UTSA shot 45% from the floor, including 15 of 33 on 3-pointers.

The Beavers never trailed and used an 11-2 run to take their largest lead at 38-24 on a Roman Silva layup with four minutes left in the first half. UTSA cut the lead to 41-34 at the half.

Oregon State scored the first nine points of the second half to take a 50-34 lead on a Thompson 3-pointer, and UTSA got no closer than six the rest of the way.

BIG PICTURE

Oregon State: OSU’s size was too much for the Roadrunners as the Beavers dominated the points in the paint, 44-14. The Beavers need to find other scoring option outside Kelley, Thompson and Tinkle, who entered as Oregon State’s leading scorer but was in foul trouble throughout.

UTSA: The Roadrunners held the edge in points off turnovers 20-18 and outrebounded the Beavers 37-35. UTSA did well passing the ball around, finishing with 16 assists on 27 made field goals.
