Despite the Ducks’ struggling throughout the 2023-24 season, there have been a handful of standout players on Kelly Graves’ squad.
One phenomenal Duck so far this year is Chance Gray. In just her second season with Oregon, Gray is leading the team on and off the court. She currently has the team-leading 3.4 assists per game and is averaging 14.7 points.
Taking a step back to her freshman year, Gray was named to the Pac-12 All-Freshman team as well as the Pac-12 All-Defensive Team Honorable Mention. She came to the Ducks as the No. 2 guard in the country.
She has become a consistent feature on Ducks’ social media and uses her platform to share what’s going on in the world around her, often retweeting moments shared with her team.
Before coming to Eugene, Gray was the No. 7 overall recruit in the ESPNW’s top 100 players from the class of 2022. She has played on Team USA’s FIBA AmeriCup as well as partaking in the McDonald’s All-American game.
More recently, Gray has improved nearly every single one of her stats in the book. Her field goal shooting has jumped from 34.2 to 37.1 percent. Her three-point percentage alone has improved to 37.3 percent from just 33.1.
Already at 309 points this season, Gray is on track to 800 career points before the regular season ends for the Ducks. Averaging 37 minutes a game, she is leading the team in time on the court.
Gray plays alongside Phillipina Kyei, Grace VanSlooten, Sofia Bell, and more. With a relatively young roster, the Ducks and Kelly Graves have a big opportunity ahead of them for improvement.
The Ducks will host their in-state rival, the Oregon State Beavers, on February 4.
