Pac-12 says end of Washington-Oregon State handled properly

SEATTLE (AP) The Pac-12 Conference says the conclusion of Oregon State's last-second victory over Washington was handled properly by game officials.

The conference released a statement on Thursday after Washington contacted the league office to review the final seconds of the Beavers' 82-81 victory on Stephen Thompson Jr.'s 3-pointer at the buzzer. Washington had asked that the timing of the game clock be reviewed after it appeared that the clock started late.

The conference said that ''the clock timing was handled appropriately by the game officials and the clock operator.'' Washington also asked whether Thompson should have been called for traveling after he shuffled his feet before the game-winning shot, but the conference said traveling is a judgment call and not reviewable.
