The Oregon Women’s Basketball Team is starting to make some noise in the Pac-12 Conference. One player in particular picked a good time to find her game. Sophomore Forward Jillian Alleyne was perfect from the field going 11 for 11 to help the Ducks(12-8, 3-6 Pac-12) defeat Arizona(4-16, 0-9 Pac-12) on Friday night 84-72. Alleyne was 5 for 5 in the first half and 6 for 6 in the second half. She also had a monster game on the boards with 20 rebounds giving her 30 career double doubles for her career and with the victory over the Wildcats her 18th this season. For the 2013-14 season Alleyne has hit the mark in 18 straight games.
With facing the Washington schools over the weekend her numbers average 31.5 points per game and 22.5 rebounds per contest vs the Huskies and Cougars. Chrishae Rowe scored 24 points along with 5 rebounds on Friday night to help the Ducks.. Paul Westhead’s team scored 28 points in the paint in the first half doubling up Arizona’s 14 points. If the Ducks are to make a run at the postseason it is clear who will take them there. There is also a record watch of sorts going on with the Oregon Sophomore.
Bev Smith, who played for the Ducks in the 1980’s, and also coached the team from 2001-2009 set the record for double doubles at 24 in the 1981-82 campaign. At the rate Alleyne is going that record will likely be broken this season. Oregon continues their road trip on Sunday at 15th ranked Arizona State. Oregon will look to make it four in a row against the 18-3 Sundevils.The game is on the Pac-12 Networks starting at 1pm.
