The sixth-ranked Bruins demolished the Oregon State Beavers 84-49. The game was over within the first 30 seconds when Darren Collison hit a three-pointer to start the game to keep the Beavers winless in the Pac-10.

Kevin Love was a rebound short of his 16th double-double with 11 points and nine rebounds, and Darren Collison, Russell Westbrook and Lorenzo Mata-Real rounded out the players scoring double digits.

The big point of concern is the sudden cold streak Josh Shipp is having behind the arc. He has missed all 19 three-point attempts since the February 2 game against the Arizona Wildcats.

With five games in the Pac-10 regular season and the Pac-10 Championship tournament remaining, the Bruins are eyeing one of the four #1 seeds for the NCAA Tournament to give them an easy road to the Final Four. Being ranked sixth, the Bruins can’t afford to lose a game or snooze in the opening round of the Pac-10 tournament like they’ve done in past years.
