Beavers prepare for road trip to Wildcats, Sun Devils

For the freshmen of Oregon State's women's basketball team, the first road trip of Pac-12 play will be a brand new and pivotal experience.

Posted: Jan 7, 2020 6:31 PM

Corvallis, Ore. -- Oregon State women's basketball is one of the most experience heavy teams in the Pac-12, except in the front court. With the losses of Taya Corosdale and Andrea Aquino to injury, the Beavers true freshmen forwards, Kennedy Brown and Taylor Jones have had to experience something of a baptism by fire. This week, they will see something another 'first' in their Oregon State careers: their first Pac-12 road trip. 

"We haven't talked a whole lot about it yet," Brown explains. "I think after this weekend we'll probably have some questions I'm sure. But it'll be interesting, it'll be a good experience."

"The game's the game," says head coach Scott Rueck. "The court's the court. The environment's the environment and you're supposed to enjoy it. We're used to playing big crowds, whether they be for or against us, and that's what we want."

Meanwhile, the Beavers will try to escape the weekend with their undefeated record intact. Arizona is ranked 18th in the country behind star guard Aari McDonald and an ensemble staff that has lost one game since March of last season. Arizona State, while replacing some of their top talent from last season, is led by veteran talents Robbi Ryan and Eboni Walker. Oregon State is just one of four undefeated teams left in the Top 25, sharing the distinction with top ranked UConn, no. 8 UCLA and no. 9 NC State. Tip off in the Beavs opening road game against Arizona will be at 7:00 pm and broadcast on the Pac-12 Network.
