This photo taken Dec. 10, 2017, shows Oregon State guard Mikayla Pivec, left, bringing the ball upcourt against San Jose State's Danae Marquez during an NCAA college basketball game Corvallis, Ore.  Pivec was unsure of the reaction she’d get when she approached Oregon State coach Scott Rueck last spring about possibly joining the track team. Lots of athletes run track in the offseason to help them stay sharp, but Pivec was a bit unusual in that she wanted to moonlight as a javelin thrower. Rueck agreed, albeit with a caveat: The javelin couldn’t take the place of hoops.  (Andy Cripe/The Corvallis Gazette-Times via AP)
