The Oregon State Beavers got the game they wanted and needed. Oregon State got off to an impressive start against Western Kentucky and never looked back winning the opener of the NCAA Women's basketball tournament here in Knoxville 82-58.
Marie Gulich was stellar. She ran the floor with precision and dominated the Lady Toppers inside. 29 points and 15 boards. She also outscored WKU in the third quarter with 17 points of her own to 15 for the Toppers.
Kat Tudor was on the money with her rainbow threes....5-11 and now the Oregon State Beavers play the winner of the Tennessee/Liberty game Sunday. The start time to be determined by ESPN.
Above is my post game chat with Marie Gulich, Kat Tudor and Mikayla Pivec who had a great game as well with 15 points eight boards and three three pointers.
