Soobum Im-USA TODAY Sports The Beavers take on Arizona Thursday night The Oregon State Beavers take on the #24 ranked Arizona Wildcats in Tucson Thursday night. Big thanks to AZ Desert Swarm and Brian J. Pedersen (@realBJP) for taking time to talk with us. Arizona has been on a bit of a roll since dropping back-to-back road losses in the State of Oregon in early January. What has been the secret to their success? Sean Miller considers the OSU loss the worst performance of the season, mostly because of how quickly Arizona gave up in the second half. Getting swept on that trip seemed to...

Tyler Bey’s Huge Night Pushes Colorado Past Oregon State, 69-47

Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports The Beavers had no answer for the Buffs. Colorado forward Tyler Bey tallied 21 points and 15 rebounds as Colorado overwhelmed Oregon State on Saturday, 69-47. The story of the contest was simply Oregon State’s inability to solve the Buffs’ usually scarcely used zone defense, which forced the Beavers into an abysmal 19-57 (32.1%) shooting display from the field and a 1-17 (5.9%) mark from behind the arc. Ethan Thompson, who finished with 17 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists, and Tres Tinkle, who added 10 points (3-15 FG) and 13 rebounds, were the only...

Oregon State Baseball: Beavers Win Season Opener 11-4

Photo by Peter Aiken/ Mitch Canham gets his first win in his first game, and the Beavers keep their streak alive.

The Beavers’ bats exploded in the first inning against New Mexico, giving the Beavers a 9-0 lead. New Mexico couldn’t recover from that, as the Beavers won their 11th consecutive season opener 11-4. That first inning deserves a closer look. Micah McDowell led things off with a walk, and then a throwing error put...
