CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) -- Seattle players looked at Wednesday's 99-48 drubbing of Oregon State as one that will put them on the college basketball map as they make the transition to Division I basketball.

The Beavers, meanwhile, are hoping to put it behind them as quickly as possible after equaling their biggest loss in school history.
"We're trying to get Seattle U. worldwide," said Seattle's Cervante Burrell, who scored 17 points and was one of five Redhawks in double figures. "This will put us out there, for sure."
Mike Boxley had 19 points, Chris Gweth 18, Aaron Broussard 15 and Charles Garcia 10 for the Redhawks (7-9), an independent team playing its first full schedule against Division I opponents since 1979-80.
"Like I told them at the beginning of the year, if we played together and played hard, we would all be surprised by the things that could happen as we go through this year," said Cameron Dollar, Seattle's first-year coach.
The 51-point margin of defeat for Oregon State came via the same score the Beavers suffered on Jan. 23, 1997 at Arizona.
"It's worth analyzing, but not worth beating yourselves up about," said Oregon State coach Craig Robinson. "I don't think this will linger very long."
Calvin Haynes had nine points for the Beavers (6-8), who were coming off consecutive road losses to Washington and Washington State to open Pac-10 Conference play.
Garcia, Seattle's leading scorer with an average of more than 22 points per game, scored just one point in six minutes in the first half due to foul trouble. But that didn't slow down the Redhawks, who broke open a close game with a 9-0 run to go ahead 27-21. The Redhawks outscored Oregon State 10-2 in the final three minutes to lead 41-27 at halftime.
Seattle scored 19 straight points early in the second half and led by as many as 54 late in the game.
"We found the open man and trusted each other, put the ball in each others' hands in the right spots and knocked down shots," Broussard said.
Seattle shot 58 percent (35 for 60) from the field, including 12 of 21 from 3-point range.
Oregon State hit only 32 percent (19 for 60) from the field and was just 4 for 22 from 3-point range and 6 for 19 from the free-throw line.
