Corvallis, OR. — The No. 7 Oregon State women’s basketball team remains unbeaten after recording its second victory of the season, defeating the Pacific Tigers, 69-57.

Senior guard Mikayla Pivec recorded another double-double, tallying 18 points and 17 rebounds to help the Beavers (2-0) advance to the WNIT semifinals, where they’ll face No. 18 DePaul at 7 p.m. on Thursday at Gill Coliseum. Junior guards Destiny Slocum and Aleah Goodman joined Pivec on the offensive side of the ball, scoring 17 points apiece for the Beavers.

However, as Oregon State head coach Scott Rueck emphasized in the postgame press conference, it wasn’t the prettiest of games. The Beavers turned the ball over 23 times through Monday night's contest due to sloppy ball movement. The Beavers countered with a dominant defensive performance, holding Pacific to a mere 34 percent from the floor.

Rueck acknowledged not all of OSU’s roster is healthy, which has contributed to some of the early mistakes in the first two games. However, Rueck believes his team will learn and improve for the future.

"We are just trying to figure it out as we are incomplete,” said Rueck. “Hopefully we have Kat back soon, Taya back soon, our depth increases and we have more veterans on the floor, which is normal when you're incorporating new players. So tonight is going to be very valuable for us moving forward. We are fortunate and happy to have survived it, which doesn't surprise me with the people I get to coach. I knew they would find a way."
