The Oregon State University women's basketball team punched their ticket to the Sweet 16 round of the women’s NCAA tournament with a 61-51 win over Nebraska on Sunday in Corvallis.

The victory in the tournament’s second round came in front of 7,227 people, which was a record for an NCAA tournament game at Gill Coliseum.

The Beavers were led by Talia von Oelhoffen, who had 19 points and eight assists. Timea Gardiner scored 17 for OSU, and Raegan Beers added 10.

The Beavers were seeded third in their bracket and the Huskers were seeded sixth.

This will be the first trip to the Sweet 16 for the OSU women since 2019. The game will be played on Friday in Albany, NY.

Their opponent will be determined Monday, when Notre Dame takes on Mississippi.
