Women’s basketball is entering the most difficult stretch of their schedule beginning tonight, with third ranked Stanford. The Ducks don’t yet have a top 40 win but will play 8 of the next 15 games against teams currently ranked in the top 25.

ESPN talks with Sue Bird and Diana Taurasi as well as coaches and professional scouts about what makes Sabrina Ionescu so great and where, if anywhere, she needs to improve.

Oregon wide receiver, Juwon Johnson, who played for new Oregon offensive coordinator Joe Moorhead at Penn State, gives the hire a strong review. Johnson says that Moorhead had great belief in the players that inspired them to play well.
