CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP)—Marcus Damas connected on an 18-foot shot with eight-tenths of a second left to give Towson a shocking 67-66 overtime victory over Oregon State on Saturday.

The Tigers (5-8), who got 20 points and a career-high 21 rebounds from Jerrelle Benimon, overcame a 19-point second-half deficit to force the five-minute extra period.

Ahmad Starks gave Oregon State (9-3) its first lead in overtime on a 3-pointer with 15 seconds left.

On the ensuing possession, Damas took a pass a few feet inside the 3-point line on the left wing and nailed the shot, quieting the Gill Coliseum crowd.

Eric Moreland had 16 points, a career-high 18 rebounds and six blocks for Oregon State, which had won five straight games. Joe Burton added 15 points and Roberto Nelson 14 points for the Beavers.
