OSU @ Montana - 6:00 PM - Dahlberg Arena - Free Video on bigskytv.org

The Beavers continue non-conference play tonight against Montana. The Beavers are coming off a 89-69 win against Texas-Pan American on Sunday.

Oregon State got off to a huge start against the Broncs, taking a 19-3 lead and never looking back. Omari Johnson led the Beavers with 18 points.

As far as starters go, the Beavers have been mixing it up lately. On Sunday, Joe Burton, Omari Johnson, and Devon Collier got the start down low, with Jared Cunningham and Ahmad Starks in the backcourt. Expect that lineup tonight when the Beavers take the court.

Head coach Craig Robinson had this to say after the win, "It was good to have a sustained effort for 40 minutes. It helps you weather a lot of mistakes. We made more aggressive mistakes but you can weather them when you play that hard."

Montana, a Division I member of the Big Sky, is currently 5-4 on the season.

The Grizzlies biggest victory came on December 5th, when Montana went into Los Angeles and defeated UCLA, 66-57. However, Montana is on a one game losing streak after falling to San Francisco in Overtime on Sunday.

Remember, tip-off is set for 6:00 PM on bigskytv.org.

Go Beavers!
