But, once the game was over, the celebrating started. 

Heading into this weekend, the Beavers men's basketball program had not won a game in the NCAA Tournament in 39 years. Now, Wayne Tinkle has Oregon State as one of the last 16 teams standing, still alive for the National Championship. 

Go ahead, keep doubting them.
