Only eight months until basketball season

Gill Coliseum saw a game for the ages on Wednesday night, as postseason basketball returned to the city of Corvallis for the first time since a loudmouthed kid named Gary Payton donned the orange and black. There was a rollicking, deafening (announced) crowd of 6,394 Beaver faithful in the stands. There was a titanic comeback from 18 points down in the second half, to send the game into overtime.

Not in our house!

As Mike Parker pointed out in the post-game show on Sunday night, the number "90" has been good to Oregon State at Gill Coliseum in the past few years. When the Wildcats of Arizona came to town, they left miserable with a 90-84 loss hanging around their necks. When the Ducks from down the road visited Ralph Miller Court later that year, they also were vanquished, this time by the score of 90-81.

Let the party begin

The crowd was electric all night long. When the game was over, the OSU players jumped up and down with their orange clad fans in the center of Ralph Miller Court as the ecstatic throng celebrated their 90-84 upset triumph over the number 14 Arizona Wildcats. It was time to party in Corvallis.
