CORVALLIS, Ore. – The Oregon State men’s basketball team will be featured in a four-part television series that has been filmed by Quarter4 Media with the premiere scheduled for 8:30 p.m. this Sunday, exclusively on Pac-12 Oregon.
The series, titled “Rise & Grind”, features a behind-the-scenes look at the 2013-14 Oregon State men’s basketball program and their challenges on and off the court as they try to work their way back to national prominence. Beaver legends A.C. Green and Gary Payton also provide their insight into the past, present and future of the Oregon State basketball team.
“I'm extremely excited about the premiere of "Rise and Grind" this Sunday on the Pac 12 Networks,” Oregon State head coach Craig Robinson said. “It will give viewers an inside look at the lives of our student-athletes, including a behind-the-scenes look at the ups and downs of daily life as we return our storied program to prominence. Quarter4 Media has captured the essence of what it is to be a part of Beaver Nation, a Division 1 basketball player and the rebuilding of a Pac-12 team. I'm especially proud to be a part of this project.”
