A new season of Oregon State basketball tips off on Friday night, as the Beavers (0-0) welcome the Big Sky Conference's Southern Utah Thunderbirds (0-0) to Corvallis for their first game of the 2017-2018 campaign. Information for tonight's game can be found below, including projected tip-off time, location and media coverage.

Game Info

  • Date: Friday, November 10th
  • Time: 7:00 PM PT
  • Location: Gill Coliseum (Corvallis, OR)
  • Coverage: Pac-12 Networks

Oregon State is hoping to bounce back from last season's abysmal 5-27 outing, which was hampered by star forward Tres Tinkle playing only six games due to injury. And while Tinkle should be back, the Beavers will likely be without Gligorije Rakocevic who broke his nose in practice this week.

Southern Utah is treading in similar territory as the Beavers. The Thunderbirds finished last season at 6-27 overall, which included two wins over non-Division I opponents. They are also hoping for a program revival in the second season under head coach Todd Simon.
