Oregon Women’s Basketball: Ducks Win 12th Straight vs USC Trojans

It was a homecoming for Minyon Moore and she finished with 11 assists to go with five points in a win over the USC Trojans, 93-67.

Both Moore and Sabrina Ionecsu led the way for the Oregon Ducks who won their 12th straight game on Sunday afternoon in Los Angeles. Ionescu, Ruthy Hebard, and Satou Sabally all finished with double-doubles for the Ducks. It was a slow start for Oregon who did not score in the opening minutes allowing USC to open with a 7-0 lead before Oregon came charging back to take a one-point lead 8-7 and not looking back after that.

Ionescu and Moore combined for 24 assists in the game. The Ducks finished with 27 assists. Ruthy Hebard was herself and dominant inside finishing with 22 points, 10 rebounds, and 2 steals. One player for Oregon who had a much-needed breakout game was Erin Boley

Boley was connecting all game with her three-point shots, at one point she was 7 for 10 from the floor. She finished the game 7 for 12 from three-point range and 9 for 14 overall finishing with a game-high 25 points in 33 minutes. For the Ducks, she will be a key player the rest of the season as the team works toward the NCAA Tournament.

Earlier in the day, Colorado had Stanford on the ropes, but the Cardinal won the game in the end with a half-court shot to win 69-66. With the win, Stanford remains one game behind Oregon with the rematch next Monday night on ESPN2. Oregon has two road games and two home games remaining in the regular season.

Oregon will play their third straight road game on Friday night visiting California at 6 pm Pacific Time before heading to Stanford on Monday night. The Ducks host the Washington schools to close out the regular season at Matthew Knight Arena.
