In her first season with the Wildcats in 2020-21, Yeaney averaged 4.1 points, 3.1 rebounds, 1.5 assists, and 1.1 steals per contest in 27 games played (24 starts).

This past season, she averaged 6.3 points, 2.7 rebounds, 2.1 assists, and 1.5 steals in 29 contests (all starts). She shot 38% from the field, 30% from deep, and 68% from the foul line.

Oregon State's incoming recruiting class includes a pair of five-star forwards in Timea Gardiner & Raegan Beers and two high-level guards in Lily Hansford & Adlee Blacklock.
