Blair Thomas is back with another Northwest Athlete Profile, this time it’s Portland born Darwin Barney of the MLB’s Chicago Cubs. Darwin was counted out by most pundits but was MLB Rookie of the Month in his first month up. Flashback to 2006, Barney was a part of history as Oregon State went on an improbable run and became the first team in College World Series history to lose twice and still win the title.
NWSB insider Blair Thomas brings us his reasons why the Oregon State Beavers don’t deserve to make the NIT tournament yet. Although anything is possible in this year’s Pac-12, these Beavers are not anywhere close to the memories of when Gary Payton was a Beaver. Craig Robinson is slowly bringing this team back to relevance and if the team can make a run at the Pac-12 tournament.

Oregon State Beavers coach Craig Robinson has them off to a 6-1 start in the Pac 12. They are dreaming of a Big Dance in March. Sophomore guard Jared Cunningham is the team’s leading scorer, Forward Devon Collier is the 2nd leading scorer, the frontcourt tandem of Eric Moreland (6 rpg) and Joe Burton (5.4 rpg) are the leading rebounders.
Oregon State Beavers blogger Jason Green tells us this season the Beavers have gotten off to a great start (4-0) and one of the main reasons is the play of G Jared Cunningham. He is a 6’4″ guard that averaged 14.2 ppg last season and his scoring will be needed this season of the Beavers are going to contend in the Pac 12.
