When you’re a four-sport athlete at the Division I level, people tend to take notice. First it was the AAU, which made Brenner the only collegiate finalist for the prestigious Sullivan Award — the AAU’s equivalent of the Heisman — and now it’s Sports Illustrated, which has nominated Brenner for Female College Athlete of the [...]
Oregon women’s basketball falls to Washington 97-71, Kristi Kingma sets conference record for three-pointers
It was a historic night at Matthew Knight Arena, but it wasn’t for the home team. Washington was unconscious from the three-point line all night as they finished with 18 three-pointers (team record) and it led to their eventual blowout victory over the Ducks. The Ducks have now dropped six-straight conference games to drop even [...]
My Twitter feed was hit by a bolt of lightning on Tuesday, as hundreds of tweets and retweets rolled in about a new leaked photo of Oregon’s Spring Game helmets. The snowy, digital camouflage lids looked sexy, I had to admit, and according to Trendmap, it garnered social media reaction in every state in the [...]
This season simply hasn’t been in favor of the Ducks as they dropped their 11th game in Pac-12 play. The No. 21 ranked Buffaloes dominated both ends of the floor as they defeated the injury plagued Ducks 84-59.

Paul Westhead’s women’s basketball team picked up their first conference win on Friday night, but they couldn’t make it two in a row Sunday afternoon in Seattle.

The Oregon women’s basketball team may be sitting on a lousy 2-12 record, but they have more reason that ever to see a glimpse of optimism in their season. While at one point they had only seven players available, they now hold 12. Not only does this help them in games, but it provides a more team-like [...]
On New Years Eve, the Ducks will have the rare opportunity of matching up against one of the most successful programs in women’s basketball in the UConn Huskies.

The woes continue for the Oregon women’s basketball team as they lose their eighth game of the season, now 0-8, to Illinois 80-62 in Champaign Wednesday evening. With the win, Illinois improved to 6-4 on the season. Freshman Jillian Alleyne had yet another stellar performance with 24 points and 16 rebounds, giving her a third [...]
The Oregon women’s basketball team, still 0-5, is going into their Sunday game against Denver with a total of seven available players, due to a recent flood of injuries. Their record alone is reason to fret, but on top of that they will have to play games shorthanded and hope that increased minutes won’t lead [...]

Head coach Paul Westhead announced Wednesday that the Oregon women’s basketball program has signed two new star recruits in Chrishae Rowe and Drea Toler for the 2013-14 season. Rowe, a shooting guard from Riverside, Calif., and a four star recruit, ranks in the top 20 at her position, 67th in ESPN’s top 100, and was [...]
Hopefully the Oregon women’s basketball enjoyed their exhibition schedule, because the season opener served as a punch in the mouth and the schedule will only get more difficult. The 78-69 loss to Saint Mary’s wasn’t the concerning part — a mix of wins and losses is to be expected — but rather the way the [...]
