ORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) — Kylor Kelley was a perfect six for six from the field and had 14 points and five blocks as Oregon State defeated UCLA 79-66 on Sunday night.

Ethan Thompson and Stephen Thompson Jr. each added 17 points, six rebounds and six assists for the Beavers (11-4, 3-0 Pac-12).

Kris Wilkes had 21 points with four 3-pointers and Prince Ali added 13 points for the Bruins (10-7, 3-1), who lost their first game in four tries under interim coach Murry Bartow.

Oregon State shot 47.5 percent from the floor, and 14 for 18 on free throws, compared to 38 percent on field goals and 10 for 21 from the charity stripe for UCLA.
