Las Vegas, NEV. -- Oregon State wasn't able to get their shooting in tact as the Beavers fall to Colorado in the quarterfinals of the Pac-12 Tournament, 73-58.

OSU went into halftime down by 19 after going 8-29 from the floor and 0-9 from three-point range. 

"We were well rested," forward Tres Tinkle said. "You can't put that at fault for having too many days off. We weren't able to just step on their neck from the start and we didn't take advantage of it."

Tinkle led the Beavers with 23 points. It was tinkle's 65th consecutive double-digit scoring effort. 

Oregon State's shooting improved in the second half scoring at a 41.67 percent clip. The Beavers used a 10-0 run to cut a 21-point lead to six, but weren't able to get stops down the stretch.

"We didn't guard the pick and roll the way we were supposed to and then it was like guys were all over the place, I was all over the place and they made every single shot pretty much so that was it," Gligorije Rakocevic said. "It's hard to guard when you're not on the same page."

The Beavers shot 34 percent for the game which is their worst performance of the season. 

Oregon State is 18-13 following the loss.
