#4 Beavs roll by Lumberjacks 91-57 improve to 10-0!

Taylor Jones is off to a tremendous start for the Oregon State Beavers. The freshman from Forney, Texas had a career high 25 points in Oregon State's 91-57 blowout win over Northern Arizona. The Lumberjacks had no answer for Jones who also picked up 13 rebounds.

The Beavers improve to 10-0 on the young season and now play Brigham Young University tonight in the finals of the Maui Jim Maui Classic in Lahaina. The Cougars topped San Jose State in the other game last night 75-56.

Taylor Jones knows things will get tougher inside when the Beavers begin Pac-12 play in January.

Maddie Washington also had a solid night for Scott Rueck's team....12 points off the bench with four rebounds and three assists.

Maddie and the Beavers will now face the Cougars tonight who sport a 6'7 inch post. It will be fascinating to see how Oregon State deals with some size inside.
