Fox Sports 1 at 8pm.
And you should be very proud…
Yep, he deserves to raid the top shelf
Go stinky beavs.
Eubanks needs to come to play. Get those rebounds!
Big night! CBI berth on the line for both squads.
MAMMOTHS!!! EAT!!! trees?
Give us that Cosby vid again
the one with or without roofies?
Cal butt pounding the ducks
Ducks getting their asses kicked.
How about the players exiting the new VFC tunnel onto the field through giant tusks mounted on each side? This would literally be feet from where the bones were found and would be a visual exclamation to the new terrace gathering area at the upgraded VFC. Everyone who notices the terrace will also see the giant tusks which become the new emblem for Andersen’s growing program.
The stream from KKNX (Eugene) wasn’t working for the last game and isn’t working again tonight. Game time is the only time I go to their stream so I’m not sure what’s going on but it appears they’re not streaming at all.
Anyone know what’s going on with KKNX?
Cal runs the ducks out of Haas pavilion 83-63. It was never even close
and we think gill looks empty this looks like a small high school game
MD and TT came to play! Big G looking good too. Olaf couldn’t be any more worthless if he tried
Let’s put Reid (another f’king idiot) in for Olaf and have him guard a guy who can hit threes and wonder why it’s still a disaster
Big G with some nice minutes here. Good ball movement on offense. Encouraging start.
Big G and LMW looking great. Pretty sure they even know how to box someone out too. Unlike….,
Does it look like the Beavs have just learned this trapping defense? They look like they don’t know exactly who should rotate. It hasn’t hurt them yet.
I was thinking that too. I’m seeing Olaf being completely worthless. Losing track of his responsibility when rotating on defense and making awful passes on offense too. Get him out of there!
It’s almost 4 on 5 when he’s in.
and shortly after I type that he miraculously lucks into a rebound as the Stanford miss goes directly to him. Right place, right time. What’s that saying? Even a broken clock is right twice a day?
Blind squirrel…..and all that.
Olaf seems to be in la-la land on the court. Zero since of urgency, he just shuffles up and down the court, throwing shitty passes. Unbelievable.
It was Olaf who was completely out of positoin when Stanford was getting those layup against the zone. It looked like WT knew it and took him out.
Big G honestly looks someone who would come collecting if you owed someone money in Brighton Beach. Or maybe I’ve just seen too many Law & Orfer episodes
My blood pressure has been steadily increasing with every Olaf pass.
I cringe when he gets the ball
Johnny Dawkins looks like that Obama impersonator on SNL
Nice total chicken shit move by the Stanford player pushing Thompson Jr back to the floor as he was trying to get up after getting knocked down on that drive
Stanfurd is tuff
Beavers are really getting hosed with the officiating tonight. Stanford player just pulled GR down to the floor when he was trying to get the rebound and nothing was called. STJ has been getting fouled on a lot of his shot attempts and only one was called. Of course Stanford got a very weak call to cut the lead to 4 at halftime though.
Going forward I’d like to see Rakocevic getting some more minutes. He’s more of a threat to score down low and isn’t allergic to rebounding
He actually looks and plays like a center. I was just thinking he could be a lot further down the line if Gomis and Cheik had never come back this year.
He doesn’t seem like he’s a freshman. Plays tough and even looks like he’s 27
Eastern Europe will age you prematurely.
Vodka and radiation.
Neat or on the rocks?
Hate to say it, but Payton is kind of having another one of his “unfocused” road games. I know he’s been a little beat up in the first half, but some lazy passes and some clock unawareness. Not sure what it is on the road with him? He needs to be razor sharp in the 2nd half, their not going to keep up the 3 pt shooting.
Olaf actully has a rebound!
If you saw it he lucked into it. Stanford miss that fell in his lap
What’s the over/under for the ensuing 2nd half collapse and the beavs are down double digits. I’ll say the 10 minute mark. Prove me wrong beavs cause I don’t think you will. Seen this time and time again.
Aaaaaaand I was wrong. I will gladly accept this. Mark it on the calendar
Nice spin move by Eubanks.
This is similar to the Utah game in SLC. Beavers just got to stay focused and keep attacking the rim. Can’t slow it down and milk the clock at all this half
Eubanks is getting block happy.
Cougs and Buffs in OT Tied @ 74
no Josh Scott tonight for the Buffs
C’mon guys, not this prevent offense shit again. Attack! Keep doing what got you the lead!
Ok, so if Tinkle’s 3rd ‘foul’ really was one, then Stanford has fouled almost every time we’ve had the ball
I was just thinking, when will they alley-oop against this zone defense. Very nice.
Hosh Scott injured?
yes. Still recovering from spraining his ankle (vulva?) against the Beavs last weekend.
Cougs & Buffs into 2nd OT
Buffs hit a fall away 3 as time expired to force the 2nd OT. Did the Coogs coug it by not fouling and instead allowing a 3?
Good point. I’m haviing to rely on the ESPN score board. No video. Can’t find a stream that I can get to work.
It was a helluva shot. King was falling away into the Buffs bench and had Hawkinson all over him trying to block the shot. I think the Cougs should’ve fouled
We’re approaching that dreaded 10 minute mark
But I didn’t need to mention that.
Anyone else feel like Eubanks consistently gets called for the biggest cheese dick, Ticky tack fouls. Every game there’s at least 2 that are almost phantom.
Big G has gotten it even worse than Eubanks w all 3 fouls being things Stanford hasn’t been getting called for
you’re both correct
11 point lead, 6-1/2 minutes left. C’mon guys. Finish this thing
And tree awakes for its slumber….beavs are getting sloppy.
Only watched the 2nd half, but the Mams look good.
Anything noteworthy in the 1st half?
Here we go…
Beavs are about to Mam it.
Refs are taking this away…
I’m only going by what MP is reporting but it sounds like GPII is playing like he’s gpt his head up his ass.
It sucks that the only shots we’ve taken since the 6 minute mark have been long, contested 3s.
They need to stop settling for jumpers and take the damn ball to the basket. Butt pucker time. I have this sinking feeling the beavs are gonna lose
Good move putting in Olaf. Gets burned on the baseline, doesn’t get the board and gets called for an and 1. Not that he even fouled him since he was doing his usual: just standing there
he finally makes a heads up play getting the loose ball and beavs call a time out
On the floor, no less!!
Should have been a foul on Allen as he pushed Tinks in the back to get that board.
Buffs win 88-81 in 2 OT’s. Coogs coug’d it again
That’s the first time I think I’ve ever seen Olaf dive to the floor.
make their free throws and they’ve got this
Haven’t been very good tonight at free throws.
They’re going to do it!
yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! congrats to Wicks Finkle!! Finally winin dat a road game yo sapossed too!!!!!!!!!
Good win, except for the late game lapse.
Way to go guys. Finally break thru on the road and get it done. Just the 3rd win at Maples since 1990. I’m happy to be wrong tonight.
Big confidence and résumé builder
wire to wire!
Close! There was one tie at 5
confidence yes. Resume, maybe a little. It does get them to 3-3 vs 51-100 RPI teams
Jesus the radio broadcast I’m listening to still has one minute to go in the game. WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Cal’s next …
Mammoth win for the Beavs
Need to focus on Cal now and play like Mammoths
That felt good. They hit the boards, moved the ball better, and weathered the storm. Gives us something to be excited about.
Consistent halves which was nice. Stanford looked pretty out of it. I think it really helped that there was no crowd.
Tinkle showed what he can really become.
Tres is the truth. That kid is going to be the Rock of the team the next 3 years. Angry: I love your comparison of Bird Lite. He can do it all and his instincts are great. Almost always has the right idea. so fluid.
Should have probably won by 20 , but nice to get the road monkey off their back. Let’s go get cal. Go Beavs!
Tres was good most of the game but man, he looked real nervous in the final 5 minutes until Gary Payton II made a shot and made a great pass ahead against pressure to really get the rest of the team to calm down and breathe.
Yeah, he stood out early, I thought…even as he struggled a bit. You could see the determination in his eyes and the complete game, he just wasn’t finishing or getting big minutes early on and now he is. He’ll be the anchor and leader next year.
Bring this sort of defense to Cal (and keep Olaf/Reid on the bench), and a win is very possible.
Did you watch any of the Cal/UO game tonight? Cal looked scary good. It’s gonna take a much better effort than tonight to win in Berkeley. Cal is undefeated at home
Cal was very good but Oregon also played their worst defense of the season. Oregon State has really been playing some fantastic defense lately and Cal is due for some serious regression on their pointers as of late. If the Beavers get Duvivier to play like he did tonight and STJ plays well, they’ll have a shot. A win isn’t likely but the Beavers will play Cal better than Oregon did tonight. Getting the monkey off their back tonight is gonna be huge for their confidence
agreed on your last sentence
Beavs up to 33rd in RPI after the win. Stanford drops to 82nd
When was the last time the Beavs won at Stanford?
If I recall one of CR’s teams won at Maples
Yeah they said 2009…only win there since like 1990
2009. Beavers swept the Bay Area schools that week. Stanford game was most memorable for Daniel Deane dunking all over a Stanford player
Unlike Olaf, Roeland had a couple of big games in the Bay Area. That’s when the “point center” thing kicked in. Hitting 3’s and dishing backdoor with the Princeton offense.
Oregon State has put themselves in good position with this win tonight. Beat Cal, Oregon or USC on the road and beat UW and WSU at home and they’re getting in the big dance cause they’ll have an RPI in the 20’s with a lot of quality wins. 9-9 in conference play with their quality home wins and a big road win probably gets them a 10 seed in the big dance.
The last 2 games we’ve seen a return to the 2014-15 defense. Guys are flying and running guys off the three point line, crashing the glass, getting a lot of deflections and forcing turnovers. Need to play that way the rest of the season.
they’d be in a better position had they not lost home games to UCLA and Stanford. In addition to Cal, Oregon and USC the beavs also play UCLA at Pauley
Listening to the postgame show. Olaf had 0 points, 2 rebounds and 1 assist in 26 minutes. That is a pathetic stat line for playing 2/3 of the game. Parker says he played some good defense tonight. He definitely hasn’t quit drinking.
Allen blowing past Olaf for a jam was classic Olaf defense. Not sure he even knows how to get into a defensive stance. This was one of Drew’s best defensive games of the season and he bailed out his teammates, so guys like Olaf didn’t look as bad. Olaf was even unsure about diving for the loose ball late cause he knew contact was coming. He just doesn’t have an aggressive mindset, so he’ll never be an okay rebounder cause he wants to be on the perimeter and not mixing it up with physical big guys in the paint. I don’t blame him for it, it’s just not who he is. Tinkle doesn’t need to play him much though.
I have never seen a 6′-10″ player more afraid of physical contact. Your typical euro player. Soft. All O and zero D. Only thing is his O game is pretty weak. One trick pony. And that one trick he’s way too inconsistent at
He’s awful, but a better option than Gomis. Big G has been decent…I’d like to see him take some more minutes. I think? All the bigs are pretty bad right now. Really need Eubanks to get his act together b/c he is the only one with potential.
Even Reid had 2 rebounds and 1 steal in only SIX minutes off the bench tonight. Some here may despise him just as much but he’s a better option than Olaf. And I agree I’d like to see more minutes for Rakocevic
Olaf has good nights once in a while and is a better offensive threat than the rest…that’s the only excuse to play him, but I’d argue it’s not worth it. At the least, see if he has his shot going early on, and if he doesn’t bench him for D. Only way it makes sense to have him out there is if he’s draining shots early and often. Too much of a liability otherwise. I did like his effort on that loose ball …he seems like a decent guy/good teammate. He’s also a pretty good passer, if we’re being fair.
Rakocevic showed a pretty nice jump hook in the post. He’s starting to show some really nice signs offensively. His defense is improving too. On a play where he hard hedged on the pick and roll, instead of just automatically running back to his man, he knocked a ball loose from Stanford’s guard and torpedoed that possession for Tree. Haven’t seen a single Beaver big man do that this season until tonight. That was impressive. He deserves more minutes. I’d rather go small at the 4 with more Tinkle and Reid and let them take guys off the dribble than have a guy like Olaf who just floats and doesn’t really do anything
I think the best lineup is MD, Payton, Thompson, Tinkle, Reid. When that lineup is out there I feel pretty good. Agree at least Reid does some things. Unfortunately he has that health issue so he can’t play a ton of minutes.
I used to feel good about Eubanks, but now I think I prefer Big G.
Bruce has been really disappointing. He seems sloppy handling the ball and into razzle-dazzle plays. It’s going to take a lot of coaching to make him a Pac-12 player.
I noticed Big G gets open inside, but either the guards don’t trust him yet or feeding the post is not part of their offense. With his size and position, I’d like to see him get 4 or 5 plays a game and see if he can convert some of them.
Ya know Angry, I actually thought about this with D Bruce. Duvivier will be a senior next year. With Jaquori Mclaughlin coming in and Bruce’s lack of PT this season it would not surprise me to see him transfer. Not saying it will happen but……
I’d be curious to know what specific examples Parker had in mind with the Olaf observation. I saw other slow white dudes blow by Olaf on the baseline and I counted three times he was out of position in the zone. He also rushed one wide open three and the shot looked awkward.
My right ass cheek is more productive than Olaf.
True. Olaf bricks 3’s, while your ass drains 2’s
Scotty for the win!
What’s the basketball equivalent of a “butt fumble”?
I wouldn’t be in the least surprised if Bruce ends up transferring. He just doesn’t fit in at all. He showed potential early on as a press breaker and he can shoot and pass, but he gets beat off the dribble a ton, he pushes the ball to a fault and makes poor decisions within the offense regularly, resulting in bad shots (live ball turnovers). He just can’t get out of his own way. Most guys wouldn’t leave just because of PT, it seems bigger than that.
I just don’t know what to make of any lineup. None of our bigs are outstanding and consistent. Eubanks had a good game tonight, but hasn’t regularly produced against Pac-12 level competition. But he has a ton of potential. Rakocevic has improved and I like his approach. N’Diaye is valuable for foul reasons and he can play a bit. Reid is just poop game in motion. Schaftenaar gets beat on PnR.
Don’t see Bruce transferring, He’ll get his opportunity to run the offense next year.
Eubanks played one of his best games in conference. He played good D and made the most of his opportunities on offense. Most importantly, he didn’t look lost.
Rakocevic – it comes down to the mental game. Physically he’s there, he’s got a nice touch and positions himself well. But commits some dumb fouls.
Bruce over dribbles the ball.
I agree. At the games I have been to this year he has dribbled way too much which wastes time of the shot clock.
I can’t figure out why there’d be any negative comments about Eubanks. Although he does seem to make one dumb foul in the first 3 minutes and then will also get called for some chi-chi ticky tack foul which puts him on the bench too long. He and Reid on D together seems to work pretty well.
When Eubanks is left in for long stretches, his inexperience shows. He tends to get lost in the shuffle in the offense on set plays. His best offense is in transition. Then on defense he can lose focus. It shows when he’s out muscled for a rebound or grossly out of position. He did show a bit of growth last night by going up strong for rebounds and being a little more patient on his shot blocking.
He’s good for about a 8 minutes at a time. By the time he’s a senior, he’ll be good for 30-35 min a game. If he can show off that jump shot every once in a while, combined with a sky hook, he’ll be averaging around 15 and 10 a game.
What shouldn’t be lost is I think Wayne changes the defensive of schemes on a game-by-game to matchup with who they are playing. It looked like last night they implemented a 2-3 matchup zone trap. The players at times looked a little lost on their rotations, however their effort and energy was there. It was a good adjustment on the first time they met Stanford. I think Wayne probably plays the guys who picked up the scheme the best during practice. Other schemes might require the skills of the other players from game to game. We probably will see something different for Cal game. Two things that need improvement, free throws (11th in conference) and turnovers.
I agree on FT’s but OSU actually leads the league in TO margain.. and is 1st or 2nd in fewest TO’s commited per game
I think what he means by the turnovers, is that they are more self inflicted than the other team causing them.
There were a few very lazy passes that were picked off by Stanford.
Your right turnovers are not HUGE deal last night, in fact the first half of half number one they had very few, but then they got a bunch all in a row, with just sloppy unforced errors. They actually do a pretty good of handling pressure on the ball. But rifling passes in the lane or pushing the outlet pass when its not there were some things I saw. They just need to be a little bit smarter in the situation. For example, at the end of the game up 7 or 9 pts, they received an offensive rebound and Tinks went back up with it on a off-hand reverse from under the basket and missed badly. If he kicks it out and they restart the weave offense it takes down another :20 seconds off the clock. another one was I think Stevie got a turn over and they broke into the front court passed it LMW who tried a contested layup and missed. I like the aggressiveness, however if its not uncontested I would rather have seen pull up and work the offense and burn more clock. He also had the option of passing on the break to an open Beav (although a Stanford defender was trailing not to far behind). Those types of turnovers or misses kept Stanford in “hang-around” mode until they sealed it much later.
I think Bruce will end up being a good one. He just needs more PT and experience….but we’re not in a position to provide that for him just yet
Fell asleep with two minutes left. Just watched the end of the game. They finished it nicely by attacking the pressure and taking the ball to the basket. Lavin summed up Tinkle’s intangible skills nicely. He usually does the right thing on the court. Big G looks like he can be a productive player going forward. Does Olaf know that it is legal to jump for a rebound, or is he still playing wooden shoe rules?
An ugly road win is still a road win. I have a feeling we’ll see Stanford one more time this year just because I hate watching them play.
They’re fucking awful and that home loss to them earlier this year is by far the most befuddled/pissed I’ve been about a loss this year. I really hope we play them again
Wrestlers handily defeat #7 Oklahoma. http://www.osubeavers.com/ViewArticle.dbml?SPSID=750108&SPID=127140&DB_LANG=C&DB_OEM_ID=30800&ATCLID=210707487
Baseball season starts one week from today
Time for some hot BWB action 🙂
Arizona St beats Usc and Arizona takes care of Ucla.
Obscure reference, but Tres reminds me of Jack Marin. Great lefty player for the Baltimore Bullets many, many years ago.
Lady Beavs run all over Colorado, look like they are on their way to a 1 or 2 seed in the ncaa tournament.
Lady Beavs kill Colorado
Did I hear that right, Hamblin is donating her hair to a cancer organization to make wigs?
Yeah, pretty awesome
She seems like a nice person……almost toooo nice!! It will be interesting to see her with the “can I speak to a manger” hair cut.
Video of the haircut here: https://twitter.com/OregonStateWBB
I expected her to wind up with a lot less than it appears from this; still a nice thing to do. Quite a gal, Honor Roll engineering major and Academic All District for the third year. And a decent horsewoman to boot.
Another side note, Gabby is going with Titus F. of the FB team……per Barometer. Sorry scotty.
I knew it! Horse chick’s are crazy!
Beaver wigs! 😀
Women’s hoops is rolling right now. I expect them to cream Utah and USC, but UCLA is the next “big” game they have. It’s a team they have to avenge their loss to. Then Stanford on the road right after that is another “big” game. I think Cal is a good opportunity for a win, but they have to take care of business overall if they want to be serious about a push towards the Final Four. This last two weeks of the season is super important, and they have set themselves up well.
I know it’s Colorado, but nice to see +2 in turnovers, that is improvement in an area which could be of concern as the competition stiffens.
You stole my gopher!
He’s licensed to kill gophers by the government of the United Nations. A man, free to kill gophers at will. To kill, you must know your enemy, and in this case my enemy is a varmint. And a varmint will never quit – ever. They’re like the Viet Cong – Varmint Cong. So you have to fall back on superior intelligence and superior firepower. And that’s all she wrote.
Hopefully Ionescu attends the Cal game to see again the type of team she can join. Lots of opportunity for her with Weisner graduating.
after today’s games Beavs up to 32nd in RPI. Cal one spot ahead at 31. Pretty big game tomorrow but I don’t expect a victory. There’s a reason Cal is unbeaten at home
How many rpi’s are there? I saw an espn one today that had osu at 29. 30,31,32 were also held by pac12 teams.
I believe this is the one the NCAA selection committee uses
But I don’t think that one is updated daily. Others believe they know the formula to calculate rpi and have live updates such as the one I linked. I don’t trust ESPN’s rpi as it seems to be the one off compared to the rest
With their SOS they probably don’t need 20 wins to get in, but they have to get one on the road somewhere whether it’s against USC or UCLA (I don’t see Oregon or Cal happening) and then they can’t fuck up at home. I do wonder if they go into the P-12 Tourney and lose the 1st rounder, they get denied at 18-12? I wish they had found a couple of other decent non-conference games. 17-8 looks a lot better right now.
I heard a few teams backed out of their games this year and one would hope the committee takes that into consideration. I’m thinking one of these teams is Miss St as we had a home and home with them. They’re 171 in RPI though so they would only look good on the win total
