The Oregon women’s basketball team will host the Stanford Cardinal on its senior night. The Ducks are currently on a 12-game losing streak and playing the fourth-ranked team in the country doesn’t bode well for a change of events.

Stanford, led by the winningest NCAA coach of all time Tara VanDerveer, looks to close out their dominant regular season with one last win.

The Cardinal has lost just four games all year and the last time the team faced the Ducks, Stanford demolished Oregon, winning by 25 points.

While eight of the Ducks 11 wins have come at home, I’m not sure the home-court advantage will carry over to their top-five matchup.

Key matchups:

I’m not confident that the Ducks can reign in the Cardinal. While head coach Kelly Graves struggles to find answers, his players struggle to shoot, control their turnovers, and slow down opponents’ offenses.

For Oregon to stand a chance, the usual studs will have to play out of their minds. 

Chance Gray, Grace VanSlooten, and Phillipina Kyei need to have one of their best days on the court to keep their team within reach of Stanford.

Defensively, Oregon will have to focus on slowing down Kiki Iriafen. Currently averaging 18.6 points per game, Iriafen leads the charge for Stanford’s scoring and is shooting 40 percent from beyond the arc.

Kyei will have to put in a lot of work in the paint. As Stanford star forward Cameron Brink looks for yet another stellar performance against the Ducks, Kyei should use her size to her advantage. Brink is 6-foot-4 but built more like a forward while Kyei is an indomitable 6-foot-8.

I expect the Ducks to come out in man-coverage to start the game but possibly switch to zone during the 3rd quarter as their stamina runs low.

This game won’t be quite as big of a blowout as the teams’ previous matchup but I still think that Stanford will easily walk away with the win.

Final score prediction: Stanford 83, Oregon 68
