No. 17 Oregon State WBB wins Pac-12 opener against Colorado

Oregon State

Have yourself an evening, Aleah Goodman.

The senior led Oregon State (3-0, 1-0) in scoring to lead the Beavs to a conference-schedule opening 70-53 win over Colorado (2-2, 0-2) Sunday evening at Gill Coliseum. 

Goodman scored 24 points on an efficient night from the field shooting 8-13 including 4-8 from behind the arc. The senior guard also added two rebounds and four assists.

Joining Goodman in double figures was senior forward Ellie Mack and freshman guard Sasha Goforth each scoring 11 points.

Mack transferred to Oregon State this past summer from Bucknell where she was named Patriot League Player of the Year as a redshirt junior. With Destiny Slocum having transferred to Arkansas, Mack will need to be one of the team's leading offensive weapons to compete in the Pac-12 and so far, so good. 

Oregon State struggled from the field as a whole, only shooting 41.8% but the Beavers defense suffocated the Buffaloes who shot an awful 29.2% from the field and 15.0% from the three-point line. 

Sophomore Taylor Jones led Oregon State starters in rebounding with seven, but freshman Jelena Mitrovic had 12 rebounds, three offensive off the bench. 

For Colorado, senior Mya Hollingshed was the only player in double figures with 21 points on 8-20 shooting, but just 1-6 from three-point land. 

Next, No. 17 Oregon State (3-0, 1-0) will host Utah (0-1, 0-1) on Tuesday, December 8th.
