Scouting report: Oregon State is the best 3-point shooting team in the Pac-12, converting 41 percent of its attempts from beyond the arc. It’s not surprising that Roberto Nelson, the team’s leading scorer, is also its most frequent 3-point shooter. He’s taken 82 of those shots this season, and has made 33. Hallice Cooke has attempted only 39, but leads the Pac-12 by making 56.4 percent of those looks. … OSU played most of its games without lengthy forward Eric Moreland, who was suspended earlier this season but is the Beavers’ most athletic player and most skilled rebounder and shot blocker. Combined with Angus Brandt and Devon Collier, Moreland supplements an OSU front line that will have UW at a size disadvantage. … Nelson is the leading scorer in the conference, a volume scorer who isn’t shy about putting up shots. … The Beavers aren’t a great rebounding team, as they rank 11th in the conference in defensive rebounding percentage, and ninth in offensive rebounding percentage.
