Oregon State (4-5) vs. Mississippi Valley State (1-9) - 7pm, Gill Coliseum - Radio on KPAM 860

After getting above .500 for the first time in a long time last week, the Beavers dropped two games on their road trip to Chicago and are now 4-5 on the year with two games left before conference play begins on New Years Eve.

More on the game from the Oregon State release:

The Oregon State men's basketball team returns to action this weekend as the Beavers host Mississippi Valley State on Saturday, Dec. 19, at 7:00 p.m. Oregon State enters the contest with a mark of 4-5 on the season after dropping a 63-61 decision at the hands of Illinois-Chicago on Wednesday. Seth Tarver led the way for Oregon State in the loss with 17 points as Calvin Haynes added 15 points for the Beavers.

The Oregon State defense has been the driving force for the Beavers in the early part of the season, led by Tarver, who leads the league and ranks second in the nation with 3.4 steals per game. Oregon State is holding opponents to just 39.2 percent from the floor and just 28.0 percent from behind the arc.

Mississippi Valley State enters with a mark of 1-9 on the season after the Delta Devils fell to Oregon, 79-51, on Wednesday. Julius Cheeks is the only Mississippi Valley State player in double figures, averaging 10.5 points per game.

Again, tip-off is scheduled for 7:00 p.m., and you can listen to the game on KPAM 860 in the Portland Area.
