5. Oregon State Beavers (15-8, 7-4 Pac-12) LW: 4
When the Beavers take the floor against their in-state rivals, there will much more than state bragging rights on the line.
Currently sitting at a record of 7-4 in conference play, the matchup will provide the Beavers with a chance to inch closer to securing a top-four spot in the Pac-12 Tournament, which would secure a first-round bye.
Not only will that be in play, but history could also be made as Oregon State has not swept the Civil War in almost a decade, as the last one came during the 2009-10 season.
The Beavers enter the matchup with a reasonable amount of momentum having won three of their last four conference games, with the one loss coming in embarrassing fashion.
After being outrebounded 41-26, the Beavers were also dominated on the scoreboard as they were blown out against Stanford 83-60.
Oregon State will look to once again lean on Tres Tinkle as he had 28 points, eight rebounds, and four assists in the first game against the Ducks this season. Tinkle currently leads the conference in scoring with 21.2 points per game in Pac-12 games.
