Oregon State's Women's Basketball staff just added a few members to the Beaver family.
On Thursday, it was announced that Jenny Huth and Deven Hunter would be joining Scott Rueck's staff in Corvallis.
"I am thrilled to welcome Jenny and Deven to the Oregon State women's basketball family, and to the OSU community in general," Rueck said in the school's official press release. "Jenny is dynamic and brings a wealth of experience as both a player and a coach, along with knowledge and familiarity of the Pac-12 conference. Jenny is a winner, a true competitor, and is passionate about people, their growth, and teaching and strategizing the game at the highest level. Each day she brings an infectious energy and is someone I have long respected in our profession. I look forward to working with Jenny, and to Beaver Nation getting to know her. It is an honor to have her join our program!
Huth played for Colorado from 1998-02 where she was a three-time All-Big 12 selection and guided the Buffaloes to the Elite Eight in 2002. Huth spent the last three years as the head coach at Northern Colorado, and prior to that she was an assistant at UCLA for seven seasons.
As for Hunter, that name should be very familiar to Beavers fans. Hunter played for Oregon State from 2012-2016, where she played under Coach Rueck. Hunter averaged 6.2 points and 5.5 rebounds per game her senior season and ended her career with 893 career rebounds, the fourth most in OSU history.
Hunter has been a graduate assistant at the University of San Diego for the past two seasons, helping the Toros to a 32-18 record and an appearance in the WCC Championship game in 2020.
"From the beginning of her time with the Beavers I knew Deven had the tools to be an outstanding coach," said Rueck. "Her understanding of the game and overall savvy provides her the knowledge and awareness to be immediately impactful. Her passion for both people and the game are necessary qualities that put her over the top. As a player at Oregon State, Deven was a force on the court, made those around her better, and helped build this program into what it is today. Since her graduation, she has impressed me by consistently challenging herself, and finding opportunities to develop and grow as a person and a professional. The sky is the limit for Deven in our profession and I am excited to welcome her back home!"
