TEMPE, Ariz. – Oregon State held Arizona State to 27.7 percent shooting from the floor en route to a 69-59 win over the Sun Devils.

Raegan Beers led the Beavers with her fifth-straight double-double, scoring 20 points with 12 rebounds. The freshman is just the sixth player in school history to accomplish the feat and the first since Ruth Hamblin in 2016. She also contributed on the defensive end with two blocks and two steals.

Talia von Oelhoffen also secured a double-double, grabbing 10 rebounds against a feisty ASU team and scoring 10 points. Von Oelhoffen and Beers were two of six Beavs who scored at least five points and nine made at least one basket to help OSU get its first win in Tempe in nearly five years.

Oregon State took control of the game early. Trailing 5-3 after a couple quick baskets, the Beavs closed the first quarter on a 13-2 run to finish the period up 16-7. Noelle Mannen kickstarted the run with a triple, followed by one each from AJ Marotte and Martha Pietsch. von Oelhoffen and Lily Hansford bookended the lone ASU basket of the run with two jumpers.

Arizona State clawed back within three in the second quarter before the Beavs responded with a 10-0 run. The three was once again a key as von Oelhoffen and Bendu Yeaney each hit one to help OSY enter halftime up 29-19.

Mannen once again found a way to contribute in the third quarter, closing an 8-0 Oregon State run with an acrobatic and-one to put the Beavs ahead by 16. ASU once again worked its way back into the game, but Raegan Beers made two layups and four free throws on a personal 8-0 run and OSU led 49-39 with 10 minutes remaining.

The two teams again exchanged runs in the fourth quarter and the Beavers again fended off the Sun Devils. Beers, von Oelhoffen and Yeaney all sank important free throws down the stretch to maintain the double-digit lead through the final buzzer.

Oregon State finished the game shooting 41.2 percent from beyond the arc and 78.6 percent at the free throw line. The Beavers got 22 of their 69 points at the charity stripe and the only player to miss multiple free throws was Beers, who had more attempts than any Beav since Earlysia Marchbanks in 2012.

The Beavers return home for their next three games. Oregon State hosts Washington State on Friday night at 7 p.m. in a game televised on Pac-12 Washington.

The 10 Best Places to Live in the West

Sometimes, you just gotta bring the lake to you.

When you hear of a city like Tempe, Arizona — located on the northern edge of the Sonoran Desert about 10 miles east of Phoenix — a waterfront vista full of paddle boarders, kayakers and boaters might not be the first image that pops into your mind. Downtown Tempe will nonetheless treat you to those unexpectedly gorgeous views vis a vis Tempe Town Lake.

But it wasn’t always that way. Despite its name, Tempe Town Lake is actually a two-mile long, 225-acre artificial reservoir that was created in 1999 by damming the dry Salt River.

Legend has it that the project was born in the ‘60s, when an Arizona State University architecture professor asked his students to reimagine the Salt River bed, which was being used as a landfill. Whatever its origins, the project became a huge success, and the city government says that Tempe Town Lake is now the second most popular attraction in all of Arizona, ostensibly behind the Grand Canyon.

Beyond a great lake, what makes Tempe the best place to live in the West (and No. 2 on our overall Best Places to Live list) is a perfect mix of a strong economy, diversity of population and affordability.

Money has narrowed down our Best Places list into four regions, and we focused on places with populations of at least 50,000 that were located in the 13 Western states as defined by the U.S. Census. Those states include: Arizona, Alaska, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, New Mexico, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, Washington and Wyoming.

We also limited the rankings to one place per county and two places per state. As with our core Best Places to Live ranking, we collected approximately 350 pieces of data on each Western place and grouped that information into nine primary ranking categories such as amenities, cost of living, diversity, economic opportunity and more. (See our full Best Places methodology for more details.)

While home to Arizona State University, Tempe is much more than a college town. Of course, there are ample opportunities to study and party, but the mid-sized town of approximately 190,000 residents also boasts a thriving arts and music scene while providing several ways to enjoy the outdoors with its plentiful trails and parks.

Tempe’s economy is particularly worth noting. Its unemployment rate — which has been hovering in the low 3% range — has been consistently lower than neighboring Phoenix, the state of Arizona and the country overall. Job growth in the area is expected to remain strong in the years ahead as well, jumping more than 9% through 2026, according to projections from Moody’s Analytics. And that’s on top of 9% growth between 2016 and 2021.

All these factors show what locals already know: You can’t find a better place than Tempe to work and play in the West. Check out our full top 10 list below:

Tempe-based Carvana may go bankrupt, costing metro Phoenix jobs

Tempe-based Carvana is staring down bankruptcy, potentially putting thousands of Valley jobs at risk.

What's happening: Last month, the used car retailer's largest creditors signed an agreement to negotiate debt restructuring together, spiking concerns about imminent bankruptcy, Bloomberg reported.

Why it matters: Carvana employed about 21,000 people in 2021, The Arizona Republic reported. Many of those are Phoenix-based jobs.

State of play: Carvana launched in 2013 and grew quickly to become one of the most valuable corporations in Arizona.

What they're saying: Carvana leadership has downplayed the company's financial situation and refused to comment on the potential of bankruptcy.

What we're watching: If the company does go under, we're interested to know what will become of the distinctive car vending machine towers it's installed throughout the country, including along the Loop 202 opposite of Tempe Town Lake.

In all likelihood, they'll become a pile of rubble. But our friends in Dallas have a few ideas for creative repurposing.

TEMPE, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) - Window-shopping while drinking. Arizona’s open container laws have historically prevented that from being a thing. But that will soon no longer be the case at two Valley outdoor shopping centers.

Five businesses at Tempe Marketplace and six at Desert Ridge Marketplace in Phoenix will offer alcohol that can be consumed while taking a stroll outside. “If the wife ever says let’s go shopping, I’ll probably say well let’s go here,” Phoenix resident Edgar Barraza said. On a cloudy Valley day, Barraza is focused on brighter and better times. Starting Thursday, Jan. 12, alcohol will be allowed on Tempe Marketplace property.

Heather Edge, marketing director for Vestar (which owns both Tempe Marketplace and Desert Ridge Marketplace), says preparations are already underway to beef up security and signage that shows where shoppers can drink. “We have Harkins, Dave and Buster’s, Kabuki, Gen Korean, Genghis Grill, and it’s all within the district,” Edge said.

The upcoming January launch comes after a bill signed by Gov. Ducey in 2019 created a three-year pilot program for mall owners to work with business owners to offer alcohol that could be consumed in common areas on mall property. In addition, after a successful test run at Copper Blues Live at Desert Ridge Marketplace, the Arizona legislature passed a new law earlier this year that allows Arizona businesses with the required permits and licenses to offer alcohol outdoors permanently starting Jan. 12.

“I think it’s going to create more of an opportunity for more people to visit the Marketplace and for more businesses to thrive,” Dave and Buster’s General Manager Trent Averhoff said. However, Averhoff expects a few adjustments as this new law goes into effect.

For new Glendale mom Nadia Muller, she’s looking forward to being able to drink while shopping. But with more ways to drink, she also questions shoppers’ safety. “Are they able to really drive?” Muller asked. “Are they going to get more taxis? Can they get mor Ubers out this way in case something from drinking happens?” Muller hears the Vegas comparisons and hopes the Valley doesn’t take it to that extreme. “This is not Vegas,” she said. “We might only be four hours away, but it’s still not the same.”

Hawaiian Airlines Creates Scholarship Fund In Partnership With Arizona State University

Honolulu-based Hawaiian Airlines announced a new scholarship fund to encourage college students to pursue a career in information technology. The airline and the W. P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University (ASU) established a $100,000 scholarship fund that will begin in the fall 2023 semester.

The Hawaiian Airlines New Horizons Scholarship grant will provide $10,000 awards each year for up to two undergraduate students who primarily reside in Hawaii and are enrolled in ASU’s information systems program. The news comes three years after Hawaiian opened a technology center in Arizona.

IT is in all aspects of Hawaiian

The airline’s Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer, John Jacobi, spoke about the new scholarship program.

“Information technology touches every aspect of Hawaiian Airlines. We will continue to grow our technology team with a focus on improving our operations and the guest experience. We are delighted to partner with Arizona State’s exceptional IT program and offer Hawai‘i students a unique opportunity to succeed in this exciting field. Of course, we also hope graduates will consider building a career right here at home with our airline.” - John Jacobi, Hawaiian Airlines Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer

On January 6, 2020, Hawaiian celebrated the opening of an Information Technology Center in Tempe, AZ, near Phoenix. The airline said the new space complements Hawaiian’s technical capabilities in Honolulu and enhances the company’s ability to hire IT professionals from across the U.S. mainland. As the largest office outside its Honolulu headquarters, the carrier has since partnered with ASU and other local educational institutions to offer IT internships.

Hawaiian, which has flown to Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport from Honolulu International Airport for more than 20 years, has also been able to recruit positions ranging from software engineers, architects, database managers, and business analysts since opening up the center.

Details of the scholarship

ASU’s W.P. Carey School of Business Dean, Ohad Kadan, expressed gratitude for the new partnership with Hawaiian.

“We are incredibly grateful for this new scholarship to support our students from Hawai’i in partnership with Hawaiian Airlines. This partnership aligns well with our vision of providing access to excellent and innovative business education.” Ohad Kadan, Dean of W.P. Carey School of Business at ASU

The scholarship, which will last one school year, is open to juniors and seniors carrying a 3.0 GPA or higher and whose primary residence is in Hawaii. The airline said applications must be submitted to Arizona State University on or before Feb. 1, 2023.

Graduates considering working at Hawaiian will join a large team of IT employees. Out of more than 7,000 workers, the carrier has nearly 300 people working in various IT roles, including software engineers, architects, database managers, and business analysts.

Workforce development initiatives

The launch of the new scholarship program continues Hawaiian’s workforce development initiatives. Last summer, the airline partnered with Honolulu Community College’s Aeronautics Maintenance Program to allow airline mechanics to teach classes. In September, the carrier joined the University of Hawaii’s IT/Cyber Leap-Start Experience Excelerator Program to provide students with on-the-job training experiences.

Named the state of Hawaii’s top employer by Forbes, Hawaiian said it is aggressively recruiting for hundreds of positions, including in IT. Internships are also available.
