The Oregon State Beavers are ready for Pac-12 play. After a somewhat sluggish start against Cal State Bakersfield, the Beavers turned up the defense and held the Roadrunners to just two points in the second quarter and then cruised to a 69-50 victory.
Taylor Jones the outstanding Freshman had another big day with 16 points, 13 boards and six blocks. It was her fourth career double-double in just twelve college games.
Senior Kat Tudor had 13 points and three more rainbow three-pointers. Senior Mikayla Pivec moved into fifth-place all time in rebounding at Oregon State with 13 points and ten rebounds.
5,534 fans showed up on a Sunday with a noon start and the students away from campus. It shows the expanding fan base for this undefeated team. Scott Rueck talked about the day at his post-game news conference along with Pivec and Jones.
