SEATTLE (AP) - David Lucas posted career highs with 14 points and eight rebounds in Oregon State's 80-72 victory over Washington Thursday night.

The Beavers outrebounded the Huskies 38-24, and it helped them top Washington for the seventh time in the teams' last eight meetings.

Washington (8-15, 3-11 Pacific-10) has lost five games in a row.

Lucas, a 6-foot-7 sophomore who is the son of former NBA and ABA standout Maurice Lucas, hit all five of his shots in the first half and was among five Beavers who finished with double figure scoring.

Oregon State's J.S. Nash scored 10 of his team-high 15 points in the second half. Philip Ricci joined Lucas with 14 points, Brian Jackson had 13 and Lamar Hurd added 10 for the Beavers (12-10, 5-8).

The Huskies were led by Will Conroy's 17 points. Nate Robinson scored 15 and dished out five assists, while Doug Wrenn added 10.

The Beavers' victory gives them a season sweep of the Huskies, as Oregon State topped Washington by 20 points at Gill Coliseum last month.

Washington grabbed an early 14-6 lead when Curtis Allen hit a 3-pointer with 13:03 to play in the half. The Beavers responded and outscored the Huskies 21-9 over the next 7˝ minutes -with Lucas scoring 10 points during the run.

After shooting 58.3 percent from the field in the first half, the Beavers held a 37-35 halftime advantage despite turning the ball over 11 times.
