"We are very excited to have the opportunity to continue our season and play a first round game in front of our home crowd," said Oregon State Head Coach Craig Robinson. "I'm very proud of the way the team has grown throughout the year and the selection is a great reward for our seniors who have worked so hard over the past few seasons.
