Women's Basketball Receives National Recognition

Dec. 12, 2000

CORVALLIS, Ore. - Oregon State University's women's basketball team received two votes in the Associated Press Top-25 women's basketball poll released Monday evening.

The Beavers (6-0) are off to their best start since the 1994-95 campaign when OSU reeled off seven consecutive wins to open the season.

Oregon State has not received votes in a national poll since the 1995-96 season, when the Beavers were ranked No. 22 in the final AP poll.

OSU also received five votes in the ESPN/USA Today Top-25 Coaches poll.

The Beavers return to the court next Monday (Dec. 18) when they host the University of Utah. Game-time is scheduled for 7 p.m.
