No. 10 Oregon (9-2)  is coming off a blowout win over Cal in the Bay Area and will look to continue its winning ways in Arizona Thursday afternoon. As for No. 11 Arizona (8-2), it is coming off a close overtime loss to Washington State, which vaulted the Cougars into the top 25 for the first time in program history. 

Oregon swept Arizona last season, winning all three meetings by a combined 58 points. The most recent matchup between the two teams saw Oregon secure a pivotal 88-70 win in the semifinal of the 2019-2020 Pac-12 tournament.

Sedona Prince has not played since December 21 against Washington State, and a timetable for her return is still unknown. However, Head Coach Kelly Graves says he’s “hopeful” she’ll play again this season. Nyara Sabally and Erin Boley have filled in during Prince’s absence with dominating post play as one of the stronger forward duos in the conference. 

Taylor Chavez has also been a bright spot off the bench for this team (13 points vs. Cal), and Te-Hina Paopao has continued to play at a high level as one of the many highly-touted freshmen. This Ducks team hopes it can help its coach celebrate his birthday with a win. 

The game will be broadcast on ESPN at 4 p.m. PST.
