Friday night the Beavs blew out USC, and they followed it with a seven-point win over then-No. 8 UCLA.
Starting with the Trojans, Oregon State women’s basketball took it to them. The Beavs got a big night from freshman Talia von Oelhoffen, 19 points, five rebounds and three assists.
Overall, OSU also saw senior Aleah Goodman (19 points) and redshirt senior Ellie Mack (13) put up double-digit scoring.
On the defensive end, the Beavers only gave up one double figures scorer for USC (10-10, 8-9 Pac-12). Oregon State won 77-52.
Then, on Sunday, UCLA (13-4, 11-4 Pac-12) was not ready for OSU.
Goodman backed up her 19 points against the Trojans with a 20-point performance against the Bruins. She led the Beavs in scoring against UCLA, and her play earned both national and conference-level recognition.
The national honor is the second of Aleah’s career. She also earned the award on Feb. 25, 2019.

Oregon State (8-6, 6-6 Pac-12) also got a double-double from sophomore Taylor Jones — 16 points, 11 rebounds. Meanwhile, off the bench, von Oelhoffen scored 13 points.
The Beavers trailed going into the fourth quarter, 52-51, but then outscored UCLA 20-12 in the fourth to beat the Bruins 71-64.
The loss dropped UCLA two spots, despite the Bruins beating a ranked Oregon squad before losing to OSU.
Speaking of the Ducks, Oregon State’s last game is set for Sunday, Feb. 28 in Eugene against Oregon at 3 p.m. PT on the Pac-12 Networks.
