The Oregon State Beavers have won the Pac-12 conference championship three of the past four seasons. Can they make it four out of five? A 10-2 non-conference record is a good start but they know the competition steps up quite a bit beginning Friday.
have included the last time the Beavers and Washington State Cougars tangled in Pullman during the 2017-18 season. A huge win at the time for Oregon State in OT.
This season the Cougars have a new coach and struggled during the non-conference part of their schedule. However, they opened their Pac-12 schedule last week and surprised the Huskies 79-76 in Seattle.
The Cougs new coach is Kamie Ethridge and has the new look Cougs at 6-6. Their star player is not new. Borislava Hristova is a Junior from Bulgaria who scored 38 against Washington Sunday so the Beavers will have their hands full with Hristova and her teammates.
The Beavers are a three-point shooting machine. In their first 12 games they have 131 three-pointers. That is an average of 10.9 three-pointers per game! Kat Tudor leads the team with 38 3's....Destiny Slocum has 27 and Aleah Goodman with 25.
How good is OSU's three-point shooting. The 43.7 percent from long distance is number one in the nation!!
