EUGENE,Ore.- Earlysia Marchbanks had 19 points, all in the final 10 minutes, and Oregon State rallied to defeat Oregon 68-53 on Saturday, sweeping the Civil War series for the first time since 2009.

Amanda Johnson, in her last home game for Oregon (14-14, 6-10), had 13 points and 10 rebounds.

Oregon State's victory was the third straight against Oregon, the Beavers' longest winning streak against the Ducks since also winning three straight in 1993-94.

Oregon State trailed 29-22 at halftime and 40-32 nearly nine minutes into the second half before Bright sparked an 18-1 run that put the Beavers up 50-41 with 5:17 remaining.

Bright scored six of the first 11 points during that stretch and Marchbanks finished off the victory by going 12 of 14 from the free-throw line in the final 4:30.
