OSU tries to snap a four-game losing skid against Stanford

The Beavers will use these next two games against Stanford and Cal to gain some momentum before the Pac-12 Tournament.

Corvallis, OR. -- With one week left of the regular season, the sense of urgency has been heightened for the Oregon State men’s basketball team. The Beavers, who host Stanford and Cal this weekend, need a pair of wins to gather some momentum before the Pac-12 Tournament.

OSU (15-13, 5-11) is leading the Pac-12 in free throw percentage (78 percent) and is 7-0 when holding the opponent to less than 40 percent shooting from the field. The challenge is putting together four quarters of well-executed basketball. The Beavers have proven they can beat the Pac-12’s best with wins over Arizona, Colorado, Oregon and Stanford. However, head coach Wayne Tinkle remains unsatisfied knowing that level of play is not consistent.

"It's a comfort [knowing we’ve beaten those teams] and it's also frustrating at times to be quite honest,” said Tinkle. “We know we can compete and beat the best teams in the league. The disappointing thing has been the lack of consistency there. Now is when the urgency really needs to go up and if we take care of business this week, we will hopefully gain that momentum. In the PAC-12 Tournament anything can happen."

Senior Tres Tinkle is six points away from passing Gary Payton and becoming the all-time leading scorer in Oregon State program history.

Up next the Beavers will host the Stanford Cardinal Thursday at 6:00 p.m. The Last time Oregon State swept Stanford in a season series was 2008-09.
