The Beavers get their first road action of Pac-12 play tonight. They face the Washington State Cougars in Pullman. The Cougars are coming of a HUGE road win over Washington and are led by former Oregon head coach, Ernie Kent. Get the full preview on Washington State here.
Oregon State opened Pac-12 play with two home losses to USC and UCLA. And are still looking for their first road win. They will likely face the Cougars without leading scorer Tres Tinkle, as well.
Per @JonRothstein- Oregon State’s Tres Tinkle likely won’t play against Washington State tonight— FanRag Sports (@FanRagSports) January 4, 2017
On the plus side, Oregon State has shown considerable improvement over their last few games. The defense has started clamping down and the offense, while still a work in progress, has cut down on turnovers and found ways to put some points on the board.
Washington State is expected to finish in the bottom half of the Pac-12 this season and is a winnable game for Oregon State, if they play well. Feel free to hang out and watch some basketball. Go Beavers!
