Burton says 'Dawg Pack' is more like 'poodles'

CORVALLIS, Ore. -- This week the Beavers will play their final two home games of the season, starting with Stanford on Thursday.

It will certainly be an emotional week for Oregon State's lone senior, Joe Burton.

The Beaver big man is having possibly the best season of his career and has even flirted a triple-double a few times this year.

At Tuesday's media availability, Burton took time to reflect on his time in Corvallis.

"Going down to Washington my freshman year, that was an adventure," said Burton. "The Dawg Pack was just vicious. It was actually the Dawg Pack. Now it's just like, I don't know, poodles, I guess."

The Huskies had the last laugh with Burton though, as Washington beat OSU 72-62 last Saturday.

Starks Record

Also last Saturday, Ahmad Starks became the all-time leader at Oregon State with 181 career three pointers.

"I'm happy about it," said Starks. "I wasn't thinking too much about it, but the one thing I'm happy about is that I was able to do it in three years, or kind of less than three years."

Starks passed Chris Stephens, who will be in attendance for the Stanford game to honor Starks.
