LONG BEACH, Calif. — Ethan Thompson had 18 points and seven rebounds, and brother Stephen Thompson Jr. added 17 points to help Oregon State hold off Long Beach State 75-72 on Sunday.

Tres Tinkle, who entered the game ranked second in the Pac-12 with a scoring average of 21.8 points per game, was held to two points on 1-of-5 shooting in the first half and finished with 12 points, nine rebounds and four assists for Oregon State (5-1). Gilgorije Rakocevic added 10 points and six boards.

Ethan Thompson’s 3-pointer and back-to-back buckets by Tinkle gave the Beavers a 46-42 lead with 14:40 left to play. Stephen Thompson’s layup capped a 30-14 spurt and OSU had its first double-digit lead, 63-52, with 7:53 to play.

A layup by K.J. Byers pulled the 49ers within 69-67, but Ethan Thompson sank a jumper and Tinkle added two free throws to push the Beavers’ lead to six. Once again Long Beach battled back, using Byers’ 3-point play and two free throws by Deishuan Booker to get within 73-72 with 34 seconds remaining. But Oregon State’s Zach Reichle sank two free throws with 11 seconds to go, and Booker and Jordan Griffin missed 3s for the 49ers in the final seconds.

Edon Maxhuni scored 10 of his 15 points in the first half for Long Beach State (2-5). Maxhuni was 3 of 4 from 3-point range while his teammates made just 1 of 12 from distance.
