CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) - Joe Burton had a career-high 17 points and nine rebounds to lead Oregon State to an 80-58 victory over Arizona State on Thursday night in the Pac-10 opener for both teams.
Jared Cunningham added 16 points, five rebounds and five assists for the Beavers (6-6), who began conference play with a win for the first time since the 2004-05 season.
Ty Abbott had 18 points, all in the first half, for Arizona State (7-5).
Burton's two free throws with 8:08 remaining gave Oregon State a 64-51 cushion and were part of a 12-3 run that put the game out of reach.
Arizona State guard Trent Lockett, the Sun Devils' leading scorer at 14.7 points per game, did not play due to a sprained left big toe.
