Beers Records Third-Straight Double-Double in 100-59 Win

Nov 19, 2022

CORVALLIS, Ore. – Oregon State led nearly wire-to-wire behind Raegan Beers' third straight double-double to knock off Prairie View A&M 100-59 on Saturday.
Beers scored a career-high 28 points to go with 12 rebounds, seven of which came on the offensive glass, to help the Beavers hit the century mark for the first time since December 1, 2018. AJ Marotte (16 points) and Talia von Oelhoffen (12 points) both scored in double-figures for the fourth time this year.
"It was nice to see us settle in right from the beginning today. I think Talia clearly set the tone for us knocking shots down," head coach Scott Rueck said. "Raegan, as talented as she is, her energy that she brings to the court makes a difference. It changes things. It's nice to see her settle in. She just impacts the game in so many different ways."
Oregon State took control early. The sophomore duo of von Oelhoffen and Marotte scored the Beavers' first 22 points, giving the Beavs an early 22-2 lead. Marotte scored the games first basket, followed by two three-pointers and a layup from von Oelhoffen. The two traded baskets before it was Marotte's turn to score eight straight and the Beavs had a large early cushion.
Prairie View responded briefly, going on a 5-2 spurt before Oregon State closed the period and opened the second quarter with a 14-0 run featuring eight points from Beers as well as three each from Adlee Blacklock and Jelena Mitrovic.
The end of the first quarter was highlighted by the Beaver debut of Bendu Yeaney. Oregon State fans greeted the Portland-native with a standing ovation as she came off the bench and Yeaney finished the game with seven points, six rebounds and two steals.  
Oregon State entered the half with a 53-26 lead and expanded it to 73-37 in the third quarter while making 40% of its shots from three. Hansford hit two from deep while Martha Pietsch and Noelle Mannen each contributed a triple as the Beavs built their lead.
Beers solidified her double-double in the fourth quarter. The freshman scored 11 points and grabbed four rebounds in the final 10 minutes, making 4-of-5 shots from the field and all three free throws she attempted.
OSU shot 48.6 percent from the floor and made 78.6 percent of its 28 shots from the free throw line. The majority of the Beavs' points came from the bench with the reserves scoring 54.
Up next, the Beavs head to Portland to take on No. 4 Iowa on Friday, Nov. 25 in the Phil Knight Legacy Tournament.
