Jimmie Haywood Sparks the Team to its Second Victory on the Australia Tour

Aug. 20, 2002

Canberra, Australia - Senior guard Jimmie Haywood scored a game-high 20 points to lead the Oregon State University men's basketball team to a 73-62 victory over the Australia Institute of Sport Tuesday. The Beavers, playing their third game in three nights, improved to 2-1 at the midway point of the six-game schedule.

Haywood made 9 of 16 field goal attempts in his best shooting game thus far on the tour. Senior forwards Philip Ricci and Brian Jackson added 18 and 12 points respectively.

'We were a little sluggish at the beginning of the game, and that is most likely a result of playing three consecutive nights,' OSU head coach Jay John said. 'We caused some turnovers which led to easy baskets for us in the second quarter and that created some momentum for us. We were very strong defensively in the final three quarters.'

The Beavers fell behind 21-11 after the first quarter, before outscoring AIS by 12 points in the second and 11 points in the third to take a commanding lead.

Oregon State again played with just nine players, as junior forward Jarman Sample and sophomore center Derek Potter continue to be sidelined by injuries. The two are still listed as day-to-day by athletic trainer Michael Sandago.

Game four on the tour will be played Thursday against the Brisbane Bullets of the Australian National Basketball League at the Aukenflower Arena.
