Oregon vs. Washington State Women's Basketball Recap: Ducks finally win a conference game

It takes three Ducks to have monster games for Oregon to nip WSU, 70-68.

In what has been an all-around disaster of a season for the Oregon women's basketball program, we finally saw a moment we didn't think would come. The Ducks have won a conference game.

The Ducks got three big performances, including double-doubles from Jillian Alleyne and Ariel Thomas, as they nipped the Washington State Cougars, 70-68, at Beasley Coliseum in Pullman. The victory marks Oregon's third on the season, first in Pac-12 play. The Cougars fall to 5-13.

Oregon marched out to a 12-point halftime lead, only to give it all back in the second half. The game would be tied down the stretch, but Ariel Thomas took over, scoring eight points in the final 2:06, including a three-pointer with 28 seconds to go to break a 65-65 tie.

Thomas had a stellar game for Oregon, with 20 points, 11 rebounds, and eight assists. Alleyne 15 points and 13 boards, while Amanda Delgado pitched in 21. Tia Presley led Washington State with 16 points.

The win eliminates the possibly of Oregon going winless in conference play. They next play at Washington on Sunday, a game that will be televised on the Pac-12 Network.
