The Oregon State women’s basketball team (6-2) was just shy of setting a new single game scoring record in their blowout win over San Jose State (2-7), 110-62. Back in 1982, the Beavers scored 117 points against Portland State, and in the first quarter of Sunday’s contest it felt like they were gunning for the record.
Six Beavers scored in double figures as everyone scored for the home team. Marie Glulich led the way with 22 points to go along with 11 rebounds to notch her second double-double of the year. Taylor Kalmer scored 19 points, making it five games she has scored at least 10 so far this season. Others to score in double figures were Kat Tudor (16), Taya Corosdale (13), Katie McWilliams (10), and Joanna Grymek (10).
Although starting point guard Mikayla Pivec scored just six points in the contest, she made sure to leave an impact by dishing out 10 assists. Aleah Goodman contributed eight dimes of her own, while adding another make from beyond the arc to bring her season total to 14 on 22 tries.
San Jose State’s Taylor Turney made the game’s first basket to give the Spartans a 2-0 lead, but a Gulich layup followed by a Tudor three gave the Beavers a lead that they would never relinquish. Myzhanique Ladd scored 19 for the Spartans while Turney chipped in 16 and Fieme’a Hafoka added 11.
The Beavers play Savannah State on Wednesday, Decmeber 13th, at 11 AM. If you’re planning on attending, bring earplugs as it is the annual Beavers Beyond the Classroom game where Gill Coliseum will host thousands of young students from across the state.
