Oregon 84, No. 15 UCLA 75
Junior guard Lexi Bando scored a game-high 25 points off the bench to lead Oregon past visiting UCLA. Bando made 5 of 7 three-pointers and made all four of her free throw attempts for 16-9 Oregon.
Oregon split its latest road trip, topping Arizona before falling at No. 23 Arizona State. But now it returns home to face a UCLA team that just logged one of the biggest wins in the Pac-12 this season.
The No. 15 Bruins won at No. 8 Stanford on Monday, pushing the Cardinal out of a tie with No. 9 Oregon State for first place in the Pac-12 standings and keeping their own league title hopes alive. Jordin Canada (18.3 points, 7.1 assists, 5.7 rebounds per game) is one of the nation's top point guards, while post Monique Billings averages 18 points per game.
The Ducks, meanwhile, are still projected as an NCAA Tournament team, largely thanks to the inside-outside shooting tandem of Ruthy Hebard (61.5 field-goal percentage) and Lexi Bando (No. 1 nationally shooting 51 percent from three-point distance) and the wide skill set of Sabrina Ionescu (13.7 points, 6.8 rebounds, 5.5 assists per game).
