Oregon State will meet Tennessee Friday

Beavers the 12 seed in the NCAA Tournament

NCAA Basketball: PAC-12 Conference Tournament Championship Oregon State vs Colorado Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sports

Oregon State has returned to the NCAA Tournament thanks to a Miraculous run through the PAC-12 tournament to claim the leagues auto-bid. The appearance for the Beavs will be the first without a Gary Payton on the roster since 1985.

Oregon State (17-12) will play Friday in Indianapolis, taking on 5 seed Tennessee (18-8).

The winner will most likely meet 4-seed Oklahoma State.

It's the second time ever that Oregon State and Oregon have both made the NCAA tournament. The Ducks earned a 7-seed in the tournament.
