Talia von Oelhoffen and AJ Marotte scored 15 points each and Raegan Beers 14 as the Beavers improved to 5-2 this season.
Oregon State outscored the SWAC’s Jaguars by double digits in every quarter. The Beavers shot 65% from three-point range (15 of 23), and 30 of 52 overall.
Oregon State post Jelena Mitrovic recorded a double-double with 10 points and 14 rebounds. Beers also had a double-double, as she had 10 rebounds.

The game was tied 10-10 with 3:33 remaining when Oregon State took off, outscoring Southern 14-3 during the remainder of the first quarter. The Beavers never led by fewer than 10 points the rest of the game. A second quarter spurt, where OSU outscored the Jaguars 19-2 during a six-minute stretch, all but put the game away.
