Game 22 Recap - Feb. 12
Brittney Davis led all Oregon State scorers with 20 points as the Beavers swept the season series over Washington with a 77-63 victory over the Huskies Thursday night at legendary Gill Coliseum.
Davis scored 12 of her 20 points from the free-throw line going a perfect 12-for-12 from the charity stripe. She added three assists and two rebounds.
Oregon State (14-8 overall, 5-7 Pacific-10 conference) shot 78.9 percent from the line, going 30-for-38 for the game. The 30 free throws made were one short of the all-time team record of 31 set New Year's day in 1982 against Hawai'i.
The Beavers out-rebounded the Huskies by nine, with Kristen Tillman leading the team with a career-high 10.
Overall, the Beavers shot 41.5 percent from field, finishing with 53 shot attempts. The Huskies had 59 attempts from the field, and posted a 42.4 clip. But the Beavers' 22 more free-throw makes made the difference.

A win Saturday would give the Beavers 15 victories on the year, which would clinch a winning regular season, with six contests still to be played afterwards. OSU will also be going for its sixth Pac-10 victory, which would be one short of the most under head coach LaVonda Wagner. The Beavers are currently in sixth place in the Pac-10 standings.
