Hoops Civil War II: Beavs go for sweep
Oregon State comes into the matchup off a season sweep over the Bay Area schools, the highlight an impressive 65-54 victory over Cal, and winners of their last three.
But Oregon (7-20, 1-14) comes in with a little momentum of their own.
The Ducks pulled off their first Pac-10 win of the season last week, putting up 39 second half points against Stanford on their way to a 68-60 win.
Oregon State topped Oregon 57-54 n the first meeting but it took a spirited second half effort by the Beavs.
Oregon held a 12 point lead at one point in the first half and Tajuan Porter scorched Oregon State for 19 points in the first 20 minutes.
But the Beavs held the entire Oregon team to a total of 19 points in the second half.
Tip off is at 7 p.m. in Eugene. The game is nationally televised by FSN and is available in high definition.
NOTABLE NOTES: Oregon State leads the long-running series with the Ducks 181-149.
Oregon State has two more road games after tonight's trip to Eugene, against USC and UCLA, to close out the regular season.
The speculation on first year Oregon State coach Craig Robinson has already begun. A column from the Oregonian: Link
