An all-time Oregon State great is returning to Corvallis, as the Women’s Basketball team announced Tuesday that Aleah Goodman will be the team’s next assistant coach.

Goodman had a stellar career at Oregon State, playing for four years from 2017 to 2021. During that stretch she was a staple of the Beaver backcourt. In 2021, her senior season, she was named a Pac-12 All Star, and she finished her OSU career on several all time lists. She finished as the Beavers eighth all time leading scorer, with 1,162 career points. She was arguably the best three point shooter the time ever had, with her .437 three point shooting percentage the best in Beaver history.

After her time at OSU, Goodman was drafted by the Connecticut Sun of the WNBA, but never saw much time on the court. She eventually joined the recruiting staff at Duke University, and has been instrumental in building that team back into an ACC contender.

With the Beavers having missed the NCAA Tournament in the past two seasons, there’s still a lot of work to be done to get them back to that level. The roster does have several promising young players to build around, so hopefully Goodman can be a key part of that process.
