The Beavers Are Ready To Go To Lexington To Take On Kentucky In The Super Regionals

By 750 THE GAME STAFF

Oregon State took care of the Corvallis regional by sweeping their way to the Super Regionals. Now the competition gets really tough.

Oregon State will take on Kentucky in the Super Regionals in Lexington. The Wildcats are the No. 2 overall seed in the NCAA tournament and swept the Lexington regional pretty easily taking care of Western Michigan, Illinois, and Indiana State.

Beavers outfielder Gavin Turley was huge and hit a clutch home run in the Beavers first win over Tulane.

Turley joined the Bald Faced Truth with John Canzano talked about the Beavers team and how they all love one another on and off the field.

“All the guys will get together every weekend it feels and whether it’s on the golf course or someone’s house, all the guys really enjoy it,” Turley said on 750 The Game. “I think that all comes from having the same goal. It’s easy to mesh well when we all have the same goal.”

With Beavers one series away from Omaha Turley explained to Canzano that he went to Oregon State for one reason. That reason was to play in Omaha.

“This is what I came here to do. I came here to Oregon State to go to Omaha,” Turley said. “I didn’t really come here for the weather. I came here to go to Omaha, and I think that’s about 90% of the kids on the team came here to go to Omaha. It’s one goal in mind and what it would mean to us is all the hard work we’ve been putting in on a day to day basis that it’s going to show.”

This is going to be the toughest matchup for the Beavers so far in the NCAA tournament, but Turley says the boys are ready to go and that the NCAA tournament is great to time to be alive.

“All the boys are ready to go. This is my second year playing in the NCAA tournament and it’s a fun time to be alive. To be a part of this team especially when it’s such a team environment. All the guys care about each other. There’s no one guy on the team that feels like he’s selfish. To go out to Lexington is going to be a blast.”

The Beavers and Wildcats will play game one on Saturday at 3 p.m. PST on ESPNU and ESPN+. According to Betonline.ag Kentucky is a -130 favorite to win the series while Oregon State is a +100 underdog to win the series.
