VILLANOVA, Pa. (AP) — Lior Garzon knocked down back-to-back 3-pointers to kick off the second half, Maddy Siegrist scored 28 points and Villanova broke away to defeat the No. 23 Oregon State women 56-52 on Sunday.

The Wildcats (5-5), after 11 lead changes and five ties in the first half, led all the way through the second, fending off Oregon State in the final 22 seconds when Brianna Herlihy and Siegrist made 3 of 4 free throws to clinch it.

Siegrist had missed six games to injury but, in her second game back, was 9-of-22 shooting with three 3-pointers and nine rebounds. Garzon scored 11, making all three field goals from distance, Herlihy added 10 points with 14 rebounds and three steals.

Oregon State’s Taylor Jones, the Pac-12 leader in shooting percentage, missed the game due to an unspecified injury. Talia von Oelhoffen was scoreless, going 0-for-8 and missing a 3-pointer at the buzzer.

The Beavers matched their season low in points.

The Beavers (5-3) turned the ball over 15 times to just three by Villanova and the Wildcats scored 17 points off Oregon State’s miscues.

Jelena Mitrovic and Taya Corosdale each posted double-doubles as Oregon State rallied at the end of the game to within 53-52 on Ellie Mack’s 3-pointer with 1:29 left. The Beavers didn’t score again.

Mitrovic had 14 points and 13 rebounds for her first career double-double, Corosdale added 10 points and 11 boards, Mack scored 11 points.

Oregon State will head to Hawaii next week, hosting the Maui Jim Maui Classic. Oregon State will play Idaho and Northern Iowa in the event, with games taking place on Dec. 17 and 19.
