Game 7 Preview and Open Thread: Cal State Bakersfield

New, 41 comments

While you are filling out your Bowl Selections and watching the NFL games, why not tune in for some Beaver Basketball?

Cal State Bakersfield @ OSU - 2:00 P.M. - Gill Coliseum - Listen on KPAM 860

The Beavers enter today's game with a record of 3-3 after defeating Colorado on Friday night.

The Beavers were down 5 at halftime against the Buffaloes before the Beavers came back. Oregon State outscored Colorado by 10 points in the 2nd Half en route to their 74-69 win.

Calvin Haynes and Seth Tarver lead the way for the Beavers, with Haynes recording 19 points and Tarver recording 14.

The most amazing stat of the game came in the last four minutes for the Beavers. Oregon State went 10 for 10 from the Free Throw Line in those final minutes to ice the victory. In the first twenty minutes of action, Oregon State went 9 for 16 from the Charity Stripe. If the Beavers can continue to hit their Free Thorws, then we have a serious shot at the NIT or NCAA's.

The Road Runners come into the game with a record of 1-4 after defeating Utah Valley and losing to Santa Clara, UCLA, Cal State Northridge, and UC Riverside. Trent Blakley and Donavan Bragg have lead the way for CSBU, with Blakley averaging 17.2 points per game so far and Bragg with 11.8. In my mind though, the key to this game will be controlling Forward Santwon Latunde. Santwon has averaged 9.4 points per game so far this season.

Cal State Bakersfield is a Divison I Independent school.

Tip-off is set for 2:00 PM at Gill Coliseum.
