CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) - Jared Cunningham scored 22 points and Roberto Nelson added 14 to lead Oregon State to a 74-54 win against Illinois-Chicago on Wednesday night.
In their final tuneup before Pac-10 Conference play, the Beavers (5-6) led by 20 at halftime, and Illinois-Chicago got no closer than 17 afterward.
Robo Kreps had 21 points and seven rebounds, and Paul Carter scored 19 points for the Flames (5-8), who defeated then-12th ranked Illinois four days earlier.
Nelson, a redshirt freshman guard, had the best of his four games as a collegian. After 18 months in eligibility limbo, the highly-touted recruit from Santa Barbara, Calif., was finally cleared by the NCAA earlier this month.
