MEET THE VISITORS
Oregon enters Friday's game with a 13-5 record, a 4-3 mark in Pac-12 play and the No. 23 national ranking in the AP Top 25. The Ducks are coming off an 85-84 loss to Washington State in overtime. UO boasts the league's fifth-leading scorer in Endiya Rogers, who averages 15.9 points per game, as well as the reigning Pac-12 Freshman of the Week Chance Gray.
SHARING IS CARING
Oregon State's offense is at its best when the Beavers are sharing the ball. The Beavs are 9-2 this season when they have at least 16 assists in a game and the only two losses came against top-20 teams (#15 Arizona & #17 Oregon) that OSU led late in the game. They also average more than 20 more points per game in games with at least 16 assists (79.0-58.4).

SHE'S THE MANNEN
Noelle Mannen transferred to OSU four years ago and walked on after not playing basketball for a year at San Francisco. Since then, she's become an important on and off-court leader for the Beavs, earning a scholarship before last season and getting her first start against Hawai'i. Mannen is second on the team in plus-minus (+127).
DOUBLE-DOUBLES ON TAP
Raegan Beers wasted little time making her mark on the floor, racking up double-doubles in her second, third and fourth college games. Beers is the only freshman in the nation with 10 double-doubles this season, nearly double that of the next-closest first-year player. She is also the only true freshman in the country to score 20 points in a double-double five times this season.
- The 6th player in Oregon State history to record 5 straight double-doubles (NCCU-ASU)
- One of 15 players in the country with 10 double-doubles (Leads Pac-12)
