Oregon women’s basketball ranked Top-10 in 2020-2021 AP Poll


We are just about two weeks away from the 2020-21 women’s basketball season from tipping off.

After what will go down as one of the greatest seasons in Oregon women’s basketball history and equally the most painful what-could-have-been season in Oregon women’s basketball history, the next chapter has begun.

On Tuesday, the first AP Poll Top-25 rankings have been released with Oregon in familiar territory: inside the top 10.

This is the 59th straight Top-10 ranking, the 60th consecutive appearance in the Top-25, and the eight longest active streak in the nation. No. 10 is the third-highest ranking in school history: No. 1 in 2019-20 and No. 3 in 2018-19.

The Pac-12 conference continues its dominance with three additional schools ranked inside the Top-10 (No. 2 Stanford, No. 7 Arizona, No. 9 UCLA) and one more ranked in the Top-25 (No. 18 Oregon State). That’s five Pac-12 teams ranked going into the season. 

Here’s how the Top-10 shakes out:

  1. South Carolina
  2. Stanford
  3. UConn
  4. Baylor
  5. Louisville
  6. Mississippi State
  7. Arizona
  8. NC State
  9. UCLA
  10. Oregon

The Ducks have been in the gym holding official practices since October 14 and are still waiting for a non-conference as well as a conference schedule to be approved and announced for the 2020-21 season.
