Both the men's and women's teams are off to their best starts in recent memory, as the two have posted a combined 10-1 mark. The men's 5-1 record after six games is the program's best start since the 1980-81 squad opened up on a 26-game winning streak.

The women's team is undefeated through five games, its best start since 2000-01, and has already set a pair of Oregon State records. The Beavers' 96-32 win over Western Oregon marked the largest margin of victory in school history, resetting the record of 60 (114-54) set on February 7, 1980 over Alaska-Anchorage and against Cal State Northridge, Oregon State reset the Gill Coliseum record for most rebounds with 55. The previous record was 53, set on March 11, 1995 against USC.
