For the fourth straight season, Oregon Women’s Basketball will open the season in the top 10 of the AP poll, checking in at No. 10 following the release of the preseason rankings Tuesday.

The women of Oregon have now been ranked in the top 25 in each of the last 77 poll releases dating back to the start of the 2017-18 season, sitting in the top 10 in all but 11 of those weeks.

The men of Oregon are ranked No. 13 in the 2021-22 preseason poll.

Both the Ducks men and women open their seasons with home games on November 9. The women face Idaho State and the men take on Texas Southern.

Oregon State’s Women will start the season ranked at No. 14. The ranking marks the eighth-straight season the Beavers have been recognized in the AP Preseason Poll, and the fourth time they have started the year in the top-15.

OSU's men's team is unranked. The Beavers’ men open with a home match against Portand State on Nov. 9 and the women open at home against Loyola Marymount on Nov. 12.
