NCAA Womens Basketball: Pac-12 Conference Tournament-Oregon State vs Stanford Jennifer Buchanan-USA TODAY Sports

After a gritty win on Friday night, the Oregon State Women’s Basketball team could’ve used an easy one, and they got that today as shots were falling for them like Seattle rain on their way to a 95-57 win over the Washington Huskies. Kat Tudor found her stroke again, going for 23 points, 7-for-9 from three, and adding four rebounds. After going for 0-for-7 against Washington State two days ago, you knew Tudor was due for an explosion.

The rout was on early as as the Beavers built a 33 point lead midway through the second quarter with 10 threes from six different players, four of them from Tudor. The lead reached 44 early in the fourth quarter where the team broke their record for most three-pointers in a game with 18.

Oregon State nearly doubled their Northwest rivals in several major statistical categories, including field goal percentage (60%-31%), three pointers made (18-9), free throw percentage (85%-43%), rebounds (46-25), second chance points (11-6), and assists (25-10).

Six Beavers scored double digits with Tudor, Mikayla Pivic (15), Taya Corosdale (13), Katie McWilliams (11), Aleah Goodman (10), and Taylor Kalmer (10) all taking advantage the Huskies zeroing on Marie Gulich who was limited to five points on four shots. Amber Melgoza did her best to keep Washington in the contest with 18 points.

Despite the win, turnovers continue to be a problem for the Beavers as they had 16 that led to 15 Husky points. But when your offense is the finely tuned machine like it was today, you more than make up for it.

Next up, Oregon State hosts the Southern California schools. The Beavers with have payback on their minds after those back-to-back losses suffered last month. Stay tuned to Building the Dam for more previews and recaps on Oregon State Women’s Basketball.
