Corvallis, OR. -- The Beavers swept the Oregon Ducks Saturday. Now they hope to continue that trend and channel the momentum by sweeping the Trojans and Bruins on the road this weekend.

Last time Oregon State met USC and UCLA, the Beavers put together two back-to-back winning performances in Gill Coliseum.

“Those are two teams that we beat here but they are going to want their revenge,” said Oregon State forward Tres Tinkle. “So we just have to be confident and poised going in there knowing they are going to bring everything they have. And we have to match it.”

Oregon State (16-8, 8-4) has its best conference record through 12 games since the 1989-90 team started 11-1. But according to head coach Wayne Tinkle, the Beavers have not played an entire 40 minutes of quality basketball yet.

“We’ve had stretches of games where we’ve been really dominant offensively and defensively,” said Wayne Tinkle. “But in terms of playing a full game? Let’s hope that’s in front of us.”

OSU plays UCLA Thursday night at 8:00.
