Oregon State Basketball: Ranking The Top Five Individual Performances Of The 2019-2020 Season

Photo by Soobum Im/ Some monster days were had by a few different Beavers players. 1. Tres Tinkle (11/9 vs. Iowa State in 80-74 Win) In a career full of amazing individual performances, Tinkle’s outing against Iowa State early this season stands near the top of the pile. The forward was extremely clutch down the stretch, knocking down two three-pointers in crunch time to seal the huge victory for the Beavers and cap off a ridiculous 27 point-display, which included a 10-16 shooting performance and a 6-8 mark from behind the arc. Additionally, Tinkle also finished with 11 rebounds, 4...

The Beavers Path to the NCAA Tournament

The Beavers Path to the NCAA Tournament

Troy Wayrynen-USA TODAY Sports Can Oregon State rattle off 4 straight wins? The Beavers have officially entered extremely charted territory. They have to win the Pac-12 tournament to get into the NCAA tournament. Oregon State’s 17-13 record is less than stellar and their non-conference schedule did them no favors. An argument could be made that if they lose in the championship game they might be on the bubble, but I don’t believe it. In my eyes, Oregon State’s only hope of earning an NCAA tournament bid is to win four games in four days to earn the conferences auto-bid. While this...

Recap: Oregon State Baseball Drops Saturday Game To UCSB With 2 Errors

Bruce Thorson-USA TODAY Sports It once again was not pretty for Mitch Canham’s squad at home. After Friday’s showing that resulted in a 6-0 loss for Oregon State, Beaver fans were hoping that the loss would be able to be chalked up to home opener jitters. Based on Saturday’s game, however, it doesn’t look like that’s the case. The UCSB Gauchos took Saturday’s game by a score of 4-0 despite the Beavers having six hits to UCSB’s five. It didn’t help that the Beavs committed three errors while the Gauchos committed none. UCSB’s Zachary Torra was the winning pitcher...
