WBB: Beavers advance to sweet 16

WBB: Beavers advance to sweet 16

Wiese and Hanson combined to score 26 points to propel the No. 2 seed Beavers to a 64-52 victory over seventh-seeded Creighton Sunday evening at Gill Coliseum to advance to the NCAA Tournament's Sweet 16 for the second consecutive season.

The Beavers are now through to the sweet 16, where they will face off against the No. 3 Florida State in Stockton, California.

OSU senior guards Sydney Wiese and Gabriella Hanson scored 13 points apiece. Last season, the Beavers advanced to the Final Four before falling to eventual champion CT.

The Beavers (31-4) never trailed and led by as many as 15 points in the second half. Junior center Marie Gulich added 12 points. The Beaver front court dominated down low, as they did for most of the game, and helped to rebuild the lead to 12 by the end of the game.

"We knew it would take a heroic effort defensively to slow them down", he said. "Our team welcomed the challenge, rose to it, and you just saw the heart that this team plays with". No. 1 seed SC has also already advanced to the regional semifinals, while No. 4 seed Miami will play 12th-seeded Quinnipiac Monday for the final Sweet 16 spot in the Stockton region.

Next up: OSU will next face No. 3 seed Florida State in the Sweet 16 on Saturday in Stockton, California. "It's an incredible accomplishment to have, and I'm super proud to go out from Gill with a bang".

OSU was up 17-10 after one quarter and 39-27 at the half with Hanson's 11 points leading the way.

The Bluejays got back within single digits early in the third quarter, but the Beavers answered by extending the lead back to 13 at the period's media timeout. Creighton never got closer than eight points after that.

The Bluejays have yet to reach a Sweet 16 in four tries. She had nine points, seven rebounds, and three assists, but what was impressive about her performance was how she took charge of the offense when she was needed to.

"It's like a storybook ending", she said.

Now No. 5 in career scoring at OSU with 1,815 points, Wiese reflected on her four-year run that started with her not knowing where Corvallis was when she was being recruited by Rueck out of Pinnacle High School in Phoenix.
