At 11-0 on the season, the Colorado Buffaloes women’s basketball team remains just outside of the AP Top 25 with 59 votes. They’ll look to improve to 12-0 as they take on the 7-3 Oregon State Beavers in Corvallis on Friday, Dec. 31.

The game will mark the start of a two-game trip to Oregon, with the Buffs heading to Eugene on Jan. 2 to take on the Oregon Ducks.

Colorado is fresh off a commanding 80-56 victory over the University of San Francisco on Dec. 20, powered by a 23-point and nine-rebound performance from forward Mya Hollingshed. It was a season-high effort in points for the senior, who leads the Buffs in both scoring and rebounding averages with 14.7 points and 6.5 rebounds, respectively.

Junior center Quay Miller has also had a productive offensive season for Colorado, averaging 12.2 points per game. She is fourth in the nation and second in the Pac-12 in field-goal percentage, shooting an impressive 64% on the season.

Oregon State’s last game was on Dec. 19, which came in the form of a 70-59 win over the Northern Iowa Panthers. The Beavers’ next scheduled game against the North Carolina Central Eagles was slated for Dec. 28 but was canceled due to COVID-19 protocols within the Eagles’ program.

The Beavs’ offense is powered by freshman guard Talia von Oelhoffen’s 13.9 points per game. She also leads the team in assists with 33 and free throws made with 26.

The game will mark the start of Pac-12 play for both teams. Tipoff is set for 8:00 p.m. MT (7 p.m. PT) at Gill Coliseum in Corvallis.
