OSU Dialed In From Distance In 98-68 Win Over UW
CORVALLIS, Ore. – Oregon State tied a school record and fell one short of the all-time Pac-12 mark with 18 three-point makes in a 98-68 win over the visiting Huskies on Tuesday at Gill Coliseum.
The Beavers shot 66.7 percent (18 of 27) from three-point range and were 32 of 49 (65.3 percent) overall from the field.
Sasha Goforth led four Beavers (4-5, 2-6 Pac-12) in double figures. She was virtually unstoppable from the floor, hitting each of her first eight shots – including 6 of 6 from 3-point distance – to score a team-high 23 points. She would miss her final two shots of the day in the fourth quarter, but by that time, she and her teammates had inflicted plenty of damage.
Taya Corosdale chipped in 16 points for the Beavers, including 4 of 5 from three.
Sophomore Quay Miller poured in 20 for her second 20-point game of the season to lead the Huskies (4-7, 1-7).
Junior Haley Van Dyke reached double figures for the sixth time in seven games with 15 points and freshman Tameiya Sadler scored 12.
Sadler, the Huskies leading scorer, picked up two quick fouls in the first 90 seconds of the game and had to take a seat on the bench as Oregon State jumped out to a 7-0 lead. By the first minute of the second quarter, the Beavers had already knocked down seven three-pointers and built an 18-point lead.
The Beavers would go on to shoot 73.1 percent in the first half – and were even a tick better 73.3 percent from three-point range (11 of 15) – to take a 54-31 lead into the halftime locker room. In the second quarter alone, the Beavers were 11 of 12 from the field, including 7 of 7 from 3-point range.
OSU built on their 26-point halftime lead and led by as many as 34 points in the second half. The Huskies would whittle the lead back down to 26 points in the fourth quarter, but that would be as close as they would get.
The Huskies return to action on Sunday, Jan. 31 at home against Stanford. It will mark the Huskies first game at Alaska Airlines Arena since Dec. 19 against Oregon.
