ST. THOMAS, U.S. Virgin Islands (AP) - Tres Tinkle had a career-high 32 points and 12 rebounds, and Oregon State shook off a slow start to beat Penn 74-58 Monday in the third-place game of the Paradise Jam tournament.
Stephen Thompson Jr. added 11 points, six assists and four steals and Kylor Kelley scored 10 for the Beavers (4-1), who overcame an early nine-point deficit at the University of the Virgin Islands' Sports and Fitness Center.
Devon Goodman had 13 points and Antonio Woods added 11 for the Quakers (4-2), who have now lost two straight after opening the season with four consecutive wins.
Oregon State missed its first four shots and committed two turnovers as Penn raced to a 10-1 lead in the first 5 minutes.
However, the Beavers rallied, with three lead changes and three ties before Tinkle's steal and fast-break dunk with seven seconds left put Oregon State ahead 31-29 at the break.
The Beavers led by as many as 20 points in the second half, going up 73-53 on Kelley's tipin with 2:10 remaining.
