Oregon Falls to Washington 93-85. Huskies travel home to Seattle to face San Diego.
The Oregon Women’s Basketball team(16-15) will look to continue their season against a foe they know well from the Pac-12 Regular season in the Washington Huskies(18-13, 10-8 Pac-12). The Ducks are also on the cusp of breaking several more records this season as two players in Jillian Alleyne has the chance to become just the fifth player in NCAA History with 500 or more rebounds for a season. She currently sits at 494. There is also the Oregon scoring record that could be broken.
Alison Lang set the record for points in a season for the Ducks at 693 in 1982-83. Two Oregon players, Alleyne and Freshman Chrishae Rowe are within reach of breaking it. Rowe has 673 and Alleyne sits at 667 – both are currently second and third most in school history. The season series between the Ducks and Huskies ended in a split. Oregon won the game at Matthew Knight Arena on January 26th 101-85 and lost the game in Seattle on February 21st 108-100.
Oregon is the top scoring offense in the country with 93.4 points per game. In the first round of the WNIT the Ducks dismantled Pacific – pretty much in one half of basketball. They won 90-63 and used a 22-0 run in the first half to their advantage. The game will also likely be the last ‘home’ game for current Head Coach Paul Westhead whose contract was not renewed by the University last month.
The Ducks and Huskies tipoff at 7pm PT from Matthew Knight Arena in the Second Round of the WNIT. The game will not be televised, but will be available on the radio on 590 KUGN in Eugene locally, and online on the Pac-12 Live Stream.
