Oregon State took on Colorado in the Pac-12 tournament yesterday afternoon and stumbled out of the gates. The Beavers were 0-9 from three-point range in the first half and shot an abysmal 28% from the field. They also did not defend with the intensity that was needed to make up for a slow start offensively. Oregon State quickly fell behind by 21 and despite a furious second-half comeback that saw them close the gap to 6 on a couple of occasions, it ultimately wasn’t enough. The four remaining teams in the Pac-12 Tournament (Colorado, Washington, Arizona State and Oregon) will battle it out for the automatic bid to the NCAA tournament.
