Oregon Ducks Women’s Basketball Defeats Southern Oregon, 118-74

Jonathan Ferrey

Paul Westhead and the Oregon Women's Basketball team opened up their 2012 exhibition season by dispatching the Southern Oregon Raiders, 118-74.

The game was never in doubt as the Ducks ran out to a 31-12 lead midway through the first half and never looked back. Sophomore forward Lexi Petersen led the Oregon scoring punch by throwing in 27 points on 11-19 from the field and helped to crash the boards by grabbing 9 rebounds.

Southern Oregon was outmatched in this contest from the outset and just couldn't get anything to fall. Raiders guard Melissa Sweat was the only bright spot for Southern Oregon and she contributed 22 on 8-24 from the field but was dreadful from beyond the arc, only hitting 1-10 from three point range.

Even though the Ducks pulled away and never looked back, shooting percentage was a major concern and will need to get cleaned up if Oregon wants to have any hope of competing against the powerhouses of the Pac-12.

Quick Stats:

FG: 42.2% (46-109)
3-Point FGs: 23.1% (9-39)
Free Throws: 70.8% (17-24)
Rebounds: 80

Blocks: 9
Assists: 32

Next up for Oregon: Corban University next Wednesday, November 7th at Matthew Knight Arena
