Oregon State shot 48.9% (22 of 45) from the floor, but went 0 of 10 from three-point range. The last time the Beavers didn’t make a three-pointer in a game was Feb. 4, 2012, when they went 0 for 9 from behind the arc in a 76-58 win. It was Oregon State’s first win in Berkeley since 2009, ending a nine-game losing streak.
Oregon has won by an average of 14 points in its last eight wins over the Golden Bears. Cal's last win in the series came on Feb. 11, 2016, an 83-63 win. PLENTY OF EXPERIENCE: Senior leadership has been on display for both of these teams.
After coming close but failing to pull off an upset win at home against one of the Pac-12 Conference's top teams, Oregon State starts a Bay Area road trip on Thursday night against one of the conference's weaker squads. The Beavers (11-11, 7-9) dropped a 61-57 decision to Colorado on Saturday and look to rebound when they visit California, aiming for a 3-0 season sweep of the Golden Bears. They beat Cal 71-63 in the season opener on Nov. 25, then bagged a 73-64 victory on Jan. 2.
