WSU women’s basketball lost to No. 14 Oregon State University 82-55 on Thursday night in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Senior guard Kat Tudor led the Beavers with 24 points and shot 6-7 from beyond the arc. She also shot 7-9 from the field. Senior guard Mikayla Pivec also had 17 points for the Beavers. She managed to have seven rebounds and five assists as too.

 In her last game in a Cougar jersey, redshirt senior forward Borislava Hristova scored 19 points on 7-17 shooting. She also grabbed four rebounds and made a steal.

It was also senior guard Chanelle Molina’s last WSU game. She shot 3-11 and had 10 points and added five rebounds and four assists to her stat sheet.

WSU lost the foul battle again as the Cougars had 13 fouls while the Beavers had eight. There was also a disparity with shooting as WSU shot 36.4 percent from the field while OSU shot 48.3 percent.

WSU trailed 29-12 at the end of the first and could not recover. The Cougars never defeated a ranked team and end their season on an eight-game losing steak.

The team will begin to look toward next season without Hristova and Molina.

Hristova ends her career with 2,269 points and 564 rebounds in 3,960 minutes played. Molina ends her career with 1,365 points, 429 assists and 284 rebounds in 3,395 minutes played.
