Oregon State goes after its first regular-season sweep of Washington in 10 years when the Beavers and Huskies face off in a Pac-12 men’s basketball contest tonight in Seattle.

Game time at the University of Washington’s Alaska Airlines Arena is 8 p.m.; the game will be televised live by Root Sports.

Not only is Oregon State trying for a rare sweep of the Huskies, it is trying to win back-to-back games for the first time since before Christmas.

The Beavers (13-12 overall, 3-9 Pac-12) are coming off a 67-66 win at Washington State on Wednesday night. Washington (13-12, 5-7) lost at home to Oregon on Wednesday, 65-52.

Oregon State is led by junior guard Roberto Nelson, who scored a team-high 17 points in the win over Washington State. Nelson currently leads the Pac-12 in scoring in conference games with an average of 18.5 points per contest.
