Oregon came into Friday’s matchup with UCLA on a two-game skid, and the losses would pile up to three before the Ducks snapped the streak.
The Ducks women were ranked No. 13 when the Bruins beat the brakes off them, 83-56. The loss was Oregon’s worst of the season.
UCLA (13-4, 11-4 Pac-12) had five players in double figures scoring, including four of the five starters. Meanwhile, the Ducks only had two players about seven points.
Unfortunately, Oregon has lost all but one game against ranked opponents this season. They’ve lost twice to Arizona, Stanford and UCLA; the only win came against Oregon State when the Beavs were ranked No. 15 in mid-December.
The Ducks bounced back on Sunday against a so-so USC team (10-10, 8-9 Pac-12). Oregon went from losing by 27 to winning by 24.
Oregon saw four players score in double figures, led by freshman Sydney Parrish (17 points) off the bench. The Trojans had one player in double digits.
The now-No. 14 Ducks (13-6, 10-6 Pac-12) have just one game left on the schedule, Feb. 28 at home against Oregon State at 3 p.m. PT on the Pac-12 Networks.
