Oregon Ducks vs. Arizona Wildcats Women's Basketball Recap: Ducks Get Trounced, Again

In what is becoming the worst season in the history of Oregon Women's Basketball, the Ducks got blown out, again, down in Tucson.

It was just another in what is becoming a long line of big defeats for the Oregon women's basketball program this season.

Despite 18 points and 12 boards from freshman Jillilan Alleyne, the Ducks were trounced in Tucson by the Arizona Wildcats, 100-68. Six Arizona players scored in double-digits, and the Wildcats hit 11 first-half three pointers, building a 21-point halftime lead. The box score reads as pretty much any other box score has this season: Oregon turned the ball over 26 times, shot under 40% from the field (38%), and shot the ball 20 less times than Arizona did. The Wildcats are very much a mid-tier Pac-12 team and, with the Ducks not being able to get within 30 of them, you have to wonder just how this team is going to win a conference game this season.

This squad has been leveled by injuries, but that's not an excuse for just how bad Oregon has been. Alleyne is developing into a monster player, averaging 15 points and 13 rebounds per game as a freshman, but the team can't shoot, doesn't play defense, and plays a style that exploits their weaknesses rather than plays to their strengths. There is too much talent, even with the injuries, for the team to be 2-14 and get consistently blown out of games like this.

The Ducks face the Civil War this week, hosting Oregon State on Tuesday night in a Pac-12 Network telecast, and traveling to Corvallis for a Sunday match-up, also on Pac-12 Network.
