DALLAS (AP) -

Jamie Weisner had career highs with 38 points and seven 3-pointers and Oregon State advanced to its first women's NCAA Tournament regional final with an 83-71 victory over DePaul on Saturday.

Weisner also had 10 rebounds for the Pac-12 champion Beavers (31-4), the No. 2 seed in the Dallas Regional. They will play top-seeded Baylor (36-1) on Monday night with a Final Four berth on the line.

Sydney Wiese added 13 points for Oregon State, including consecutive 3-pointers in an early 90-second span when the Beavers went ahead to stay. Ruth Hamblin also scored 13 points.

DePaul (27-9) was in its fourth Sweet 16 under 30-year coach Doug Bruno, but has never gotten farther in the tournament.

Jessica January had 20 points for DePaul, while Jacqui Grant had 15 and Mart'e Grays 14.
