Three Beavers Score 20-plus Points in Saturday's Scrimmage

Oct. 26, 2002

Corvallis, Ore. - Philip Ricci scored 23 points, Jimmie Haywood had 21, and J.S. Nash added 20 as the Black team defeated the White team 101-48 Saturday in a men's basketball scrimmage at Gill Coliseum. The Black team was comprised mostly of first unit players.

'This is the first time we have scrimmaged two full 20-minute halves, and we attempted to make this as game-like as possible,' Oregon State first-year head coach Jay John said. 'I want us to keep running and push through our individual fatigue barriers, because that is what we need to do to be successful - push the ball. I think it's pretty obvious that we need to continue to develop some depth.'

The White team was led by Vic Remmers and David Lucas, who each scored 10 points. True-freshmen Chris Stephens and Kevin Field added eight and seven points, respectively.

'I was also pleased by the fact that our guys ran for 40 minutes, that is the most we have run up-and-down since the start of practice,' John added. 'We are getting into better physical shape, so we are able to run longer, that was good to see.'

Senior Mike Cokley, sophomore Floyd North III, and freshman Lamar Hurd played for both teams during the scrimmage. Senior forward Brian Jackson and sophomore center Derek Potter did not participate due to injuries; both are expected to return to the lineup in the near future.

Oregon State begins its exhibition season Mon., Nov. 4 in Gill Coliseum with a 7 p.m. contest against the Northwest All Stars.
