The fans at T-Mobile Arena will be treated to a game between the Oregon State Beavers and the California Golden Bears when they take their seats on Wednesday.

ABOUT OREGON STATE (5-26): Sophomore forward Drew Eubanks earned all-Pac-12 honorable mention honors after averaging 14.7 points, 8.5 rebounds and 2.2 blocks, but guards Stephen Thompson Jr., JaQuori McLaughlin and Kendal Manuel shot a combined 30.8 percent from the field in the last three games. Sophomore center Gligorije Rakocevic has provided a spark by averaging 8.5 points and 5.2 rebounds over the past 10 games, giving coach Wayne Tinkle hope for an upset. “I’ve seen some nutty stuff happen in the postseason,” Tinkle told reporters. “It is a clean slate and it’s time to start over.”

ABOUT CAL (19-11): Nobody questions the Bears’ defensive ability, but coach Cuonzo Martin needs more scoring throughout his lineup after his bench was held to six points in the loss to Colorado. “You just can’t keep getting stops and stops without scoring,” senior wing Jabari Bird told reporters. “We’ve got to score baskets, too.” Bird, whose career has been marked by multiple injuries, ranks second on the team in scoring at 14.2 points per game but was limited to a total of 18 points on 7-of-24 shooting in two regular-season wins over the Beavers.

Oddsmakers currently have the Golden Bears listed as 14-point favorites versus the Beavers, while the game’s total is sitting at 121½.

California sits squarely on the NCAA Tournament bubble heading into Wednesday’s matchup against Oregon State in the first round of the Pac-12 tournament in Las Vegas. The fifth-seeded Bears closed the regular season by losing five of their final six games and likely need at least two wins this week to secure a spot in the Big Dance.

Cal leads the Pac-12 in scoring defense but was held to a total of 90 points in road losses to Utah and Colorado last week and needs more production from star forward Ivan Rabb, who was limited to 19 points on 4-of-14 shooting in the two losses. Rabb averages a team-high 14.3 points and 10.6 rebounds to lead the Bears, who shot 27.3 percent from the field in last Saturday’s 54-46 loss to Colorado. Cal won both regular-season meetings against the 12th-seeded Beavers, who finished 1-17 in league play and ranked last in the Pac-12 in both offensive and defensive efficiency. The Beavers struggled mightily without sophomore forward Tres Tinkle, who never returned after breaking his right wrist on Nov. 25 but will be eligible to apply for a medical hardship waiver after the season.

California lost its last outing, a 54-46 result against Buffaloes on March 04. They failed to cover in that game as a +2.5-point underdog.

Oregon State was a 80-59 loser in their most recent outing at home against Ducks. They failed to cover the +19-point spread as underdogs.
