OSU (19-12) was picked to finish last in the Pac-12 and had to win the conference tournament just to make the NCAA field. After the Beavers pulled that off, they cruised past No. 5 seed Tennessee in the first round of the NCAAs. The Beavers then became the third double-digit seed to reach this year’s Sweet 16 on Sunday, joining Oral Roberts and Syra- cuse. The Beavers now advance to play eighth-seeded Loyola Chica- go in a Midwest Region Sweet 16 matchup that few could have pre- dicted. The game will take place Saturday, March 27 with tipoff scheduled for 11:40 a.m. (PDT) and broadcast live on CBS TV, KOIN Channel 6.

(AP photo) Remembering Elgin Baylor (AP) — Elgin Baylor, the Lak- ers’ 11-time NBA All-Star who soared through the 1960s with a high-scoring style of basketball that became the model for the modern player, died Monday. He was 86. The Lakers announced that Baylor died of natural causes in Los Angeles with his wife, Elaine, and daughter Krystal by his side. With a silky-smooth jumper and fluid athleticism, Baylor played a major role in revolutionizing bas- ketball from a ground-bound sport into an aerial show. He spent parts of 14 seasons with the Lakers in Minneapolis and Los Angeles during his Hall of Fame career, teaming with Jerry West through- out the ′60s in one of the most po- tent tandems in basketball history.
