It's the most contested college basketball rivalry in history! Here they go again Saturday night at Gill. The Beavers in the middle of an uneven season which includes two signature wins over Colorado and Arizona. And perplexing odd losses to teams they should beat. Right now Oregon State is 13-9 overall and in the next to the bottom spot in the current Pac-12 standings at 3-7.
The Ducks are coming off a disappointing loss at Stanfotrd. The same team the Beavers beat a week ago. Oregon State players also remember they swept Oregon last season. I included their last meeting at the top of the story.
Wayne Tinkle knows how important the Civil War is and talked to me on Tuesday about the rivalry, about his team and about Ducks standout guard Peyton Pritchard.
This is a huge game for the Beavers to get their season back on track. The 14th-ranked Ducks are motivated because they were swept by the Beavers last season.
Mike Parker will have the play-by-play call on 1190 KEX. 7:pm the pregame coverage and the tip is set for 7:30 pm
