CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) — Jordan Pope scored 11 of his 15 points in the second half to help Oregon State pull away and beat Seattle U 73-58 on Thursday night.

Oregon State used a 27-5 run for a 70-50 lead with 3:57 to play. Dzmitry Ryuny scored all six of his points on a pair of 3s during the stretch. The Beavers shot 56.5% (13 of 23) in the second half and finished 18 of 22 (82%) overall from the free-throw line.

Glenn Taylor Jr. added 13 points and Tyler Bilodeau had 11 for Oregon State (5-6). Ryuny also grabbed 12 rebounds.

Riley Grigsby scored 14 points to lead Seattle (7-2). Paris Dawson had 11 points and Alex Schumacher 10. Grigsby and Dawson had five of the Redhawks’ nine baskets from long range.

Seattle (7-2), which was off to its best start since the 2006-07 season and hadn’t opened 8-1 since 1966-67, shot 34% (19 of 56).

Seattle led for most of the first half and 28-25 at halftime. Dawson made consecutive 3s and Brandton Chatfield added a dunk during an 8-0 surge that gave the Redhawks their largest lead of the second half, 36-28, with 16:42 to play.

Oregon State hosts Green Bay on Sunday and Denver on Dec. 21 before a three-game road swing back into the Pac-12 Conference, starting with rival Oregon on Dec. 31. Seattle hosts Alcorn State on Sunday.
