Gamer: Oregon WBB vs. Oregon State

February 28, 2021

No. 14 Oregon (13-6, 10-6) returns to Eugene to defend home court against Oregon State (8-6, 6-6).

Seeing how the Pac-12 has used traveling partners, both teams are coming off road trips to Los Angeles. The Ducks lost badly (83-56) to No. 10 UCLA, but were able to flip the script against USC with a dominant 72-48 win. 

The Beavers have momentum on their side after sweeping UCLA and USC. Oregon State has been led this season by senior guard Aleah Goodman, who is averaging 16.6 points per game and doubles as the team’s leading 3-point shooter.

Scott Rueck’s team is far from one dimensional with four of five staters averaging double figures. The list of capabale scores conintues with Taylor Jones (12.1 ppg), Sasha Goforth (11.9 ppg) and freshman Talia von Oelhoffen (11.9 ppg) who has played in just seven games this season. 

Freshman Te-Hina Paopao will not play after injuring her right foot. She was seen in a walking boot during pre-game warmups. The Ducks will be led by names like Nyara Sabally, Erin Boley, and Taylor Mikesell.

Sabally has been a force down low all season and Oregon will need strong shooting from multiple players to keep the offense going.

Freshman Sydney Parrish lit it up from beyond the arc with four 3-pointers against USC and her shooting could provide a spark when needed. Senior Erin Boley contributed 13 points of her own against the Trojans and was one of four Ducks to score in double figures. 

This is the last game for Kelly Graves and his squad before they head to Las Vegas for the Pac-12 Tournament. 

No. 14 Oregon will host Oregon State at 3 p.m. The game will be carried by Pac-12 Networks.
