On a night where she needed just 30 assists to reach the 4,000 career assist milestone, graduate transfer Inna Balyko, matched an Oregon State high, dished out the third-most assists in a match in her career and distributed 50 or more assists for the seventh time in her career, finishing the victory with 53 helpers to guide Oregon State to a season-best matching 69 kills in the win over Colorado. She also set a season-high in digs with 15 to record her fifth double-double of the season and anchor the OSU defense that out-dug the Buffaloes 57-38 in the match.

Mychael Vernon has finished in double figures for kills in 17 of her 20 matches played so far this season. She recorded a career-high 22 kills in the win over the Buffs, swinging .333 in the process. Of the 20 matches, Vernon has been the top attacker for the Beavs in 12, including eight of the Beavs Pac-12 matches. She leads the Beavs with 261 kills on the season.

A two-year starter at Oregon State, Izzi Szulczewski recorded Oregon State's first triple-double in five years against Portland, and is one of just two PAC-12 athletes with a triple-double this season. She is the only PAC-12 athlete with multiple triple-doubles this season and one of just 13 in the country.

The Beavers have yet to be beaten this season through 22 matches when collecting more service aces than their opponents, compiling a 4-0 record to this point. OSU is averaging 6.25 aces per match in the four wins, compared to just 3.39 aces per match in the other 18 matches, where the Beavs hold a 3-15 record.

Freshman Kinley Swan has made just 15 errors to go along with 68 kills on 146 attempts through 12 matches of PAC-12 play. Swan is sixth in the conference with a .363 hitting percentage through the first 12 matches of league play.
