Oregon Athletics

Oregon women’s basketball won their second Pac-12 Tournament title in the last three years, rolling past Stanford in the championship game in Las Vegas on Sunday. The Ducks' 89-56 victory was their 19th straight win.

No. 3 Oregon and No. 7 Stanford were meeting in the tournament championship game for the third year in a row. The Cardinal won last year’s championship and the Ducks won in 2018.

Sabrina Ionescu had 20 points, 12 assists and eight rebounds, Ruthy Hebard added 24 points, while Minyon Moore had 21 for the Ducks.

Ionescu was named the Pac-12 Tournament’s Most Outstanding Player for the second time in her career. She finished her Pac-12 Tournament career as the all-time leader in points (250), assists (86), and field goals made (90). Hebard was named to the Pac-12 all-tournament team.

The 2020 Pac-12 Tournament's Most Outstanding Player, Oregon's Sabrina Ionescu, wears the net after cutting it down in Las Vegas, Nev., on March 8, 2020.

Oregon will receive a No.1 seed in the NCAA tournament. They are also expected to move up to No. 2 overall in the AP Top 25 poll after No. 2 Baylor lost to Iowa State earlier Sunday.

The Ducks are predicted to host the first two rounds of the NCAA Tournament that begins on March 20. Campus host sites will be announced in the NCAA selection show on March 16.


With the Oregon men’s team winning the regular season Pac-12 conference title over the weekend, Oregon becomes the first Pac-12 school to have conference titles in football, women’s basketball and men’s basketball in the same academic year.
