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.
