A true point guard, Ennis will likely miss all of non-conference action with a foot injury and could possibly miss more time depending on how the recovery goes. Oregon State made only 32.3 percent of three-pointers last season – the worst mark in the Pac-12 – and the lanky freshman should provide a floor-spacing boost off the bench.Season outlook: Tinkle will likely start the year coming off the bench but should end up playing major minutes as a freshman.

The Senegal native started five games last season but struggled to find a regular spot in the rotation. He was the team's second-leading rebounder behind Payton as a junior. Like Duvivier, his offensive numbers could improve due to the expansion of options for which opposing defenses must account.Season outlook: One of the team’s emotional leaders, Gomis’ biggest on-court assets are his defense and communication skills. Gomis will miss the first few weeks of the regular season due to a broken left hand. He was the Beavers’ leading scorer and rebounder, his 3.1 steals per game ranked second in the nation and he locked down the Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year award. He probably won’t be among the top scorers on the roster, but he is a player that has the ability to lead the team in scoring a few times a season. Oregon State has applied for a waiver so that Muller will not have to sit out the season due to NCAA transfer rules.Season outlook: The big man from Montenegro is an imposing physical presence but will need time to develop as he learns Oregon State’s offensive and defensive schemes.

Bell broke his foot in April and his recovery has taken longer than expected. He can use his wingspan and strength to lock down offensive players and is one of the nation's best shot-blocking guards. After Benjamin, he’s likely the top wing/forward coming in off the bench.Season outlook: Sorkin might be one of the most intriguing players on the roster. He joined the team midway through the season last year, coming by way of the U18 Israeli national team. Payton will again start in Oregon State’s backcourt with Malcolm Duvivier, manning one of the tougher defensive guard combinations in the country. His biggest challenge will be posting his skinny frame up against some of the thicker big men of the Pac-12.Season outlook: The biggest question with Benjamin is this: Is he more valuable in the lineup or off the bench? However, he can be a valuable asset off the bench due to his dribbling and shooting ability.
He played internationally this summer, got into better shape and shows all the signs of a star in the making.Season outlook: In 2014-15, Cook was the Robin to Joesph Young’s batman. Offensively, he can get to the basket and has spent the offseason working on his long-range jumper (he shot only 29.3 percent from three-point range last year).2014-15 stats: 13.4 ppg, 7.5 rpg, 3.2 apg, 3.1 spg.Season outlook: The son of assistant coach and Syracuse alum Stephen Thompson Sr. may already have the purest shooting stroke on the team. ... Dwight Anderson, who starred in basketball at Kentucky and Southern California, has died.

The Beavers’ newfound depth at guard could be a boon to Duvivier’s offensive efficiency and give him some rest (the junior played 34.8 minutes per game last year).2014-15 stats: 10.7 ppg, 3.0 rpg, 3.5 apg.Season outlook: Eubanks has only been playing competitive basketball for four years but his athleticism, length and hard work have made him the likely candidate to start the year at center since Daniel Gomis is out with a broken hand. If he continues to develop, he could easily score 15 points per game. The Ducks would like to see him increase upon his rebound numbers.Season outlook: Boucher has been the star of the preseason. If he does return in time for conference play, it will give Oregon an experienced leader on the floor who has already commanded the respect of his teammates.Registration on or use of this site constitutes acceptance of our.

Rakocevic will see the floor in non-conference play due to the Beavers’ injuries.Season outlook: Manuel was the second-rated high school player out of Montana behind Tres Tinkle.
