Oregon State Riding High After Upset Win Over Oregon
Sunday brought another big with for Oregon State Women's Basketball. Aleah Goodman scored 20 points, leading six beavers into double figures as OSU topped No. 14 Oregon 88-77 in the annual rivalry game on Sunday in Eugene. This was the second upset win in a week for the Beavers after they knocked off then No. 8 UCLA on Feb. 21 in California.
The Beavers have now won six of their last seven games.
Sasha Goforth added 17 points for Oregon State in the win over the Ducks. Sedona Prince led Oregon with 22 points, Taylor Mikesell and Erin Boley each added 16. Nyara Sabally finished with a double-double of 13 points and 10 rebounds.
The Ducks, who won the first round of the rivalry series in December, played without point guard Te-Hina Paopao, who had 22 points in that victory. Oregon trailed by just three at halftime Sunday, but OSU was 7-of-9 from three-point range in the second half to maintain control.
The Ducks and the Beavers are headed to the Pac-12 Tournament in Las Vegas this week.
The two teams could meet again on Thursday if OSU beats Cal in round 1 on Wednesday. The Ducks have a bye in round one and will face the winner of the Oregon State- Cal match up on Thursday at 11:00 a.m.
