CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) - Sydney Wiese scored 23 points and No. 11 Oregon State made its last seven shots to close the game with a 15-4 run to defeat rival Oregon 67-60 for the second time in three days on Sunday, and the 13th straight time overall.

Wiese, who made just 1 of 4 3-pointers through three quarters, made 3 of 4 behind the arc in the fourth, scoring 11 points and surpassing 1,600 for her career.

Tied at 44 entering the final quarter, the Ducks built a six-point lead. Wiese’s second 3 started the deciding run and her layup with 2:25 left put the Beavers up for good. After an Oregon miss, her 3 made it 62-58 at 1:36. Kolbie Orum followed with a layup and Breanna Brown, a 59 percent free-throw shooter, made a pair at 39 seconds for a 66-58 lead.

Brown finished with 16 points, hitting 6 of 8 free throws for the Beavers (20-2, 9-1 Pac-12), who have won five straight, including 43-40 at Oregon on Friday. She had seven rebounds and Gabriella Hanson nine with six assists as OSU owned the boards 46-29.

Sabrina Ionescu had 21 points and 10 rebounds for the Ducks (14-8, 4-6), who attempted just three free throws.
