Scouting report: OSU continues to hold onto its image as the Pac-12’s biggest enigma. The Beavers are talented enough, and have played well enough at times, that they’re capable of beating anyone in the conference. But they still have so many bad losses and are so inconsistent that a loss to them is still considered frustrating. Nelson continues to lead the conference in scoring, and in addition to Moreland an Brandt, the Beavers bring forward Devon Collier off the bench to round out a pretty skilled frontline. The Beavers are also a strong 3-point shooting team, ranking third in the conference at 40.2 percent. Nelson, Cooke and Morris-Walker are players to watch in that department. … OSU is 11-2 at home this season, losing only to Coppin State and California. They can pull to .500 in conference play with a win over UW.
