The No. 3 Oregon Ducks (24-2, 13-1) are riding a 12-game win streak heading into the final four games of Pac-12 conference play.
After a dominant weekend in Los Angeles, led by two double-double performances from senior forward Ruthy Hebard, the senior received Pac-12 Player of the Week honors.

Over the weekend, Hebard averaged a double-double: 26.0 points and 13.5 rebounds. She was a mismatch down low in both games against UCLA and USC. The Bruins and Trojans had no answer for the 6-foot-4 senior down low. She put up 30 points and pulled down 17 rebounds against then-No. 7 UCLA, a difficult task against one of the better rebounding teams in the conference.
Hebard is averaging 17.2 points, 9.6 rebounds and 1.3 assists per game this season.
Up next, the Ducks remain on the road, for what seems like an eternity now, for a weekend in the Bay Area starting with unranked Cal (2-12 in Pac-12) on Friday night followed by a top-5 showdown at No. 4 Stanford (12-2 in Pac-12) on Monday night.
In their first meeting, Hebard was limited to 16 points and 6 boards against Cal and 11 points and five rebounds against Stanford. Yes, the Ducks defeated Cal 105-55 and then a 32-point victory over Stanford 87-55, but this time around the Ducks are the visiting team and Hebard will be looking for more of an impact.
