SEATTLE -- After winning the Pac 12 regular season title, (6) Oregon left little doubt as to who the best women's basketball team in the conference is as they won the conference tournament as well, beating (16) Stanford, 77-57. It was the first time in program history the Ducks won the conference tournament.
Sophomore Sabrina Ionescu was on a different planet, scoring 36 of the Ducks' 77 points on the night. Ruthy Hebarb, Satou Sabally, and Maite Cazorla all finished in double figures as well, combining for 33 points.
Ranked sixth in the country entering the Pac 12 tournament, the Ducks have put themselves in excellent position going into the NCAA Tournament. By winning their conference tournament, they give themselves an excellent chance of landing a No. 1 seed. Regardless of whether or not they get a No. 1 or 2 seed in March, they will be hosting a regional, meaning they will get two home games en route to the Sweet Sixteen.
