NWSB Insider and Pac 12 college basketball blogger Rick Stella tells us call it a good omen, or whatever you want, but if the Oregon State Beavers can put together the kind of performances that we saw during the PAC-12 tournament, Western Illinois should pose little threat to the Beavers. Jared Cunningham and Sophomore forward, Devon Collier will be on top of their games for OSU.
