SEATTLE, WASHINGTON

DUCKS 76 - HUSKIES 57

The No. 5 Oregon Ducks (19-1, 8-0) went to Seattle and beat the Washington Huskies (8-13, 1-8), 76 to 57. Erin Boley scored a career-high 31 points and hit nine three-pointers.

Regardless of their overall record, many of Oregon’s PAC-12 foes seem to rise up to the challenge when the Ducks come to town. The Huskies came into this game allowing 76.6 points per game while scoring 61.0 against conference foes, so the final score is par for the course, but the Washington women deserve some credit for their first half performance.

Going into the half, the Huskies held the Ducks to just 36 points. Outside of Boley, Oregon’s starters were held to pedestrian point totals: Ruthy Hebard had six, Satou Sabally and Sabrina Ionescu had four, and Maite Cazorla had three.

Boley’s 7-of-8 three-point shooting in the first half, alongside a solid defensive performance from the rest of the team, helped Oregon build a lead despite the team as a whole missing a bounty of high-percentage shots. Boley finished the game with nine three-pointers, tying Katelyn Loper and Taylor Lilley for the UO single-game record.

Once again, it was a strong third quarter performance that broke the game open for the Ducks, as Ionescu and Cazorla began to find their rhythm.

Ionescu’s shooting slump continued, she finished 5-of-16 from the floor, but that doesn’t mean she didn’t have a handful of impressive moments. She was one assist and two rebounds shy of her 17th career triple-double and finished with thirteen points.

Cazorla was the only other Duck to finish in the double-digits and the rest of the Oregon squad were kept in check by this determined Washington team. After the Huskies’ early game triple streak the Ducks began to tighten up on defense, leading to their eighth PAC-12 victory of the season!
