The Ducks are gaining national recognition after a dominant weekend in the Bay Area.
Oregon women’s basketball extended the nation’s longest winning streak to 16 games on Sunday by destroying then No. 11 Stanford by 40 points and obliterating California last Wednesday. In the latest AP top-25 poll, the Ducks (23-1, 12-0 Pac-12) remained steady at No. 3 but gained three first-place votes.

Guard Sabrina Ionescu earned Pac-12 Player of the Week due to her contributions in the pair of road wins. The junior averaged 27 points while shooting 62.9 percent from the field and 75 percent from three-point range. The weekly honor is her second of the season and her eighth-career weekly honor, which ties the third-most in Pac-12 history.
The lone undefeated team in the Pac-12 Conference, the Ducks went from 632 total points to 653 points this week.
Oregon is just behind No. 2 Louisville (23-1), who also received three first-place votes and 664 total points. Baylor (21-1) continues to reign on top, with 22 first-place votes and 694 total points.
Coming off of shooting a blistering 75 percent from three against Stanford, the Ducks welcome in Civil War week.
Oregon hosts No. 9 Oregon State, the next highest Pac-12 team in the AP Poll, in Eugene on Friday night. The Ducks will then meet the Beavers again on Monday night in Corvallis. Stay tuned for more coverage.
