Hot Cougar Action: The day after OSU

Jeff Gross

The Cougars staged a late rally, but still lost to Oregon State on Thursday.

Men's basketball

Much like they did a few seasons ago against UCLA, the Cougars went on a three-point barrage against Oregon State on Thursday only to come up just short. The only difference is that close loss came to the No. 5 team in the country on the road, not the No. 10 team in the Pac-12 at home.
