Yeaney answered with a basket inside before VanSlooten made two foul shots and Rogers hit another 3 to make it 63-62 with 2:45 left and Oregon led the rest of the way.
Rogers made 8 of 8 from the free-throw line – all in the final 5-plus minutes.
Oregon State shot 40% (26 of 65) from the field and limited the Ducks to 37% shooting (23 of 63). but made just 1 of 14 after Yeaney’s basket with 4:08 to play that gave the Beavers a 52-58 lead.
Oregon hit 11 3-pointers and outscored the Beavers 18-8 from the free-throw line, where they shot just 57% on 14 attempts. Oregon State made 7 of 27 (26%) from behind the arc.
The Beavers jumped to a 9-0 lead but Chance Gray hit 2 3-pointers and Rogers hit three more – including a pair in the final seconds – in the first quarter to give Oregon a 21-18 lead going into the second.
