Prairie View A&M will bring a familiar face back to Gill in Danny Evans. The PVAMU Associate Head Coach played for the Beaver men's team under coach Ralph Miller and helped the Beavs win three Pac-10 titles. Evans was also an assistant coach for the Beaver women for five seasons.
On the court, the Panthers are 2-2 with wins over Huston Tillotson and Wiley College. PVAMU will be looking to snap a two-game losing streak after falling to Washington State and Lamar. Diana Rosenthal is the team's top scorer, averaging 21.8 points per game while shooting 45 percent from three. Destiny Jenkins and Tamiracle Taylor also average double-figure scoring.
Talia von Oelhoffen joined an exclusive list of Rueck-era Beavers when she scored 31 points against USC last season. Only six other Beavs have scored 30+ over the last 12 seasons: Jamie Weisner, Marie Gulich, Aleah Goodman, Ruth Hamblin, Kat Tudor and Destiny Slocum. After scoring 32 against EWU on Thursday, von Oelhoffen is the first Beaver under Rueck to score 30+ twice in her career.
Raegan Beers wasted little time making her mark on the floor, racking up double-doubles in her second and third college games. Beers is one of just three true freshmen with two double-doubles in their first three games this season. She is also the only true freshman in the Power 6 to score 20 points in a double-double this season.
To balance out an otherwise-young roster. Scott Rueck made a point to grab experienced players from the transfer portal. Enter Shalexxus Aaron and Bendu Yeaney. Though slowed by injuries at various points, the duo brought a combined 146 starts and 189 games played when they came to Corvallis. Aaron was a team captain for two seasons at USC while Yeaney started 24 games on Arizona's national runner-up squad in 2020-21.
