Oregon State fell behind by twenty-one points in the first half, mounted a second-half comeback to get within single-digits, but ultimately fell to the Colorado Buffaloes in the Pac-12 Quarterfinals on Thursday, 73-58.

The Beavers conclude the conference tournament with a brief one-game performance after earning a bye with a top-four seed.  Colorado advances to face top-seed Washington in the Pac-12 Tournament semifinals on Friday night.

Tres Tinkle led the Beavers with 23 points, but it came on 21 shots (8-for-21), while senior Stevie Thompson Jr scored just 10 points in his final game as a Beaver (0-for-5 from 3pt).

Oregon State will learn it’s post-season fate sometime next week.  We’ll see if the Beavs (18-13, 10-8 P12) will get to the NIT, CBI, or another playoff tournament.
