The Oregon Ducks women’s basketball team defeated UCLA 88-83 in overtime on Saturday night to advance to the Pac-12 Tournament championship game. The Ducks had a late lead slip away late in regulation as a foul by Ruthy Hebard led to game-tying free-throws by the Bruins. The game was tied 75-75 at the end of regulation before Oregon outscored UCLA in the extra session, 13-8.
The top-seed Ducks will play the winner of 2-seed Stanford and 11-seed Washington in the Pac-12 Tournament Championship Game on Sunday in Vegas.
Oregon was led by the 28 points of post Ruthy Hebard, who also had 12 rebounds. Sabrina Ionescu had 18 points, 12 rebounds and 6 assists to help Oregon’s cause, and forward Erin Boley had 13 points.
