Jaz Shelley was named freshman of the week for women’s basketball. Jaz made a program record 10 three pointers in a win over UC Riverside and is the first freshman to score more than 30 points in a game for Oregon since the 2013-14 season.
The women’s basketball team moved up to number two in the national rankings this week. Oregon is one of three Pac 12 teams in the top five. The Ducks have been ranked in the top ten for 45 consecutive polls.
Oregon sophomore Will Richardson is having a breakout season this year. Richardson is shooting better, including 60% from three, and scoring more consistently from every level with 10.33 points per game off the bench. Per coach Altman, Richardson is also one of the best on ball defenders the Ducks have.
