Devon Collier capped a high-scoring homecoming with a career-best 27 points and 14 rebounds, and Oregon State held off Purdue 66-58 on Friday in the third-place game of the 2K Sports Classic benefiting the Wounded Warrior Project.
Roberto Nelson added 10 points for the Beavers (3-1), who squandered a 15-point cushion in the second half before taking over again in the final 2 minutes.
Oregon State dominated the boards 47-36 and overcame an apparent knee injury to center Angus Brandt, who had nine points and nine rebounds.
The score was tied at 56 with 2 minutes to play when Collier put Oregon State ahead to stay by sinking a pair of free throws to start a decisive 8-0 run.
