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.
