Beavers Set to Open Tournament in Knoxville



The Oregon State women’s basketball team will open the 2018 NCAA Tournament in Knoxville, Tenn, the NCAA Selection Committee announced Monday as part of its Selection Show. The No. 3 seed Beavers will take on 11-seeded Western Kentucky on Friday.
Should Oregon State advance, it will play on Sunday against the winner of No. 3-seed Tennessee and No. 14-seed Liberty. The second-round winner will head to the Sweet 16 at the Lexington Regional.
This season marks the fifth-straight season Oregon State has made the NCAA Tournament, the most consecutive tournament runs in program history. The Beavers head to this year’s NCAA Tournament with a record of 23-7, as the team has notched its fifth-straight 20-win campaign. Oregon State has made the NCAA Tournament in each of the last four years, and has made the Sweet-16 in back-to-back seasons, including a Final Four run in 2016.
