CORVALLIS — Kat Tudor credits her Oregon State teammates for her ease on the court.

The junior guard had a season-high 24 points, including four 3-pointers, and the ninth-ranked Beavers easily dispatched winless La Salle 100-46 on Saturday. She also had a season-high nine rebounds.

“It’s easy when you have great people around you, great teammates that make you feel comfortable,” said Tudor, who has had at least three 3s in six of Oregon State’s seven games this season. “It’s such a team game for us and it makes everyone feel like they belong.”

The Beavers (6-1) led the overmatched Explorers (0-7) by as many as 55 points in the second half. Taya Corosdale had 11 points, a season-high 10 rebounds and seven assists for Oregon State, which had five players in double figures.

La Salle was led by freshman Janay Sanders with a season-high 12 points. La Salle’s top three scorers were true freshmen.

“You saw a David versus Goliath where Goliath did its job. But I was really pleased with the effort that our kids put out,” La Salle coach Mountain MacGillivray said.

Oregon State’s lone loss this season came against No. 1 Notre Dame at the Vancouver Showcase last weekend. Earlier in the Canadian tournament, the Beavers downed then-No. 13 South Carolina.
