Oregon Ducks Wash Away Pacific 90-63
The Oregon Women’s Basketball team finished the regular season with a .500 record at 15-15 and tonight will play in the post season for the first time since Head Coach Paul Westhead’s first season in 2008, when they also played in the WNIT. This time it will be the swansong for the Ducks coach as his contract will not be renewed for next season. The Ducks have been successful this season thanks to the leadership of several key players including Sophomore Jillian Alleyne who averages 15.9 rebounds per game and Freshman Chrishae Rowe who will get a taste of what the post season is like.
The Ducks take on Pacific tonight as come into the game leading the nation in scoring with 93.5 points per game. Alleyne ranks third in the Pac-12 in scoring with 21.9 points per game. Look for Oregon to try to get off to a quick start vs Pacific. The Tigers are led by Senior Kiki Moore who is familiar with the Ducks. She started her career with Washington State and Fresno State before moving to Pacific. She has had a fair amount of scoring success against Oregon as well.
