Final Score: Oregon St. 71 Long Beach St. 39

Freshman Alyssa Martin poured in 24 points to lead the Oregon St. women's basketball team to a 71-39 win Saturday night over Long Beach St. to open the Scott Rueck era on a positive note.

Martin made 9 of 12 shots, including 5 of 7 from 3 point range to lead the lady Beavers, who opened the game with an 8-0 run, and never looked back.

Freshman Alexis Bostick was also in double digits, with 14 points, and sophomore Angela Misa, one of only two returning players, just missed a double double, with 12 rebounds and 9 points.

"We talked about expecting anything tonight," new head coach Rueck said. "We didn't even know what kind of defense they would play. What we did defensively allowed us to be opportunistic offensively. We ran well tonight, and yet still had good patience when we needed, it so I was really proud of the team’s effort."

Oregon St. (1-0) heads to Hawai’i next weekend for the Jack in the Box Rainbow Wahine Classic. The Beavers will face Eastern Michigan first on Friday at 5 PM.
