Complete Effort Gives Ducks First Pac-12 Win

BERKELEY – Oregon put together a complete effort from start-to-finish in a dominant 88-53 win over California on Sunday at Haas Pavilion for the Ducks’ first Pac-12 victory of the year following their tough outing against Stanford on Friday.

The Ducks made a season-high 14 three-pointers while limiting the Golden Bears to 29.4 percent shooting from the field. Te-Hina Paopao and Sydney Parrish led the way, each scoring 21 points while Parrish knocked down a career-high seven three-pointers.

“I was really proud of our effort,” said head coach Kelly Graves. “Sometimes it’s difficult to come off of a loss and regroup two days later and play against a good team. But I thought we got off to a good start, played well at both ends of the floor, shot it really well and it just kind of snowballed from there.”

The Ducks came out on fire offensively from the get-go, hitting six of their first seven shots including four straight from outside to go up 16-2 five minutes in. Oregon finished the opening quarter shooting 71 percent from the field and 6-of-8 from outside, led by Sydney Parrish’s nine points to go up 26-13.

Oregon continued to stretch the lead in the second quarter behind more good play offensively. The Ducks hit four more three-pointers while holding Cal to just two field goals in the quarter to take a 50-27 lead into the half.

Paopao hit a three on Oregon’s first possession of the half while Parrish connected on two more from outside, fueling a 12-5 run to begin the half and open up a 30-point lead. The Ducks cruised the rest of the way down the stretch, clamping down defensively and outscoring Cal 19-12 in the fourth to finish off the win.

Parrish drained her first six shots from deep, going 4-for-4 in the first half and hitting two threes early in the third quarter. She turned in her third 20-point game of the season, finishing tied for the team lead with 21 points while grabbing five rebounds.

Paopao became the sixth different Duck to turn in a 20-point game this season, matching Parrish with 21 points on 8-of-13 shooting, including going 4-for-5 from outside. Endyia Rogers and Nyara Sabally also reached double figures, with Rogers putting up 12 and Sabally adding 11 points, nine rebounds and five assists.

Friday, Oregon battled from start to finish on the road against No. 2 Stanford before seeing a comeback bid ultimately come up just short in an 80-68 loss in the Pac-12 opener.

“I was proud of our team,” said head coach Kelly Graves. “I was proud of our effort, our grit and our toughness. We got down 18 at one point and fought back, but maybe just didn’t get the shots that we wanted to. I’m okay with this, we just need to keep playing that hard.”

The Ducks are set to host Arizona on Saturday, Jan. 15 at 2:30 p.m. before taking on Connecticut in Matthew Knight Arena on Monday, Jan. 17 at 2 p.m.
