Pac-12 Announces 2021-22 Weekly Pairings

SAN FRANCISCO – The Pac-12 Conference has released the weekly matchups and site designations for the league’s 2021-22 women’s basketball season.

Oregon’s weekend opponents for the 2021-22 Pac-12 Conference slate only reflects the opponents the Ducks will play on a given week during the conference season, in addition to the location of the games. Specific dates and times for each game and the order in which games will be played over each weekend will be announced at a later date.

Oregon will open Pac-12 play at home the weekend of Dec. 31-Jan. 2 against Colorado and Utah before heading on the road to take on the Bay Area schools, Jan. 7-9. The Ducks return home to host the Arizona schools the weekend of Jan. 14-16, creating the potential for Oregon to face three 2021 Final Four teams in a four-game stretch with the addition of the Jan. 17 nonconference matchup with UConn.

After a road weekend at the Washington schools, Jan. 21-23, the Ducks will then go through a stretch in which they play six of their next eight games against teams that made the 2021 NCAA Tournament, starting with a home weekend against UCLA and USC, Jan. 28-30. Oregon then heads to the desert to take on Arizona and Arizona State, Feb. 4-6, before a rivalry home-and-home weekend against Oregon State, Feb. 11-13.

Oregon will then host California and defending national champion Stanford the weekend of Feb. 18 before closing out the conference season on the road against Colorado and Utah, Feb. 24-26.

Games on the final weekend of the regular season are scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 24 and Saturday, Feb. 26, to avoid a quick turnaround for teams playing on the first day of the Pac-12 Tournament. Announced in mid-June, the Conference’s postseason event has been permanently modified to feature an open date on Saturday, with 11 games spread out over five days. Days of competition will be Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday. The 2022 Pac-12 Women’s Basketball Tournament, presented by New York Life, is scheduled for March 2-6 at Michelob ULTRA Arena at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.

The 2021-22 season will be the Conference’s last with an 18-game league slate. Beginning with the 2022-23 regular season, the women’s Pac-12 schedule will increase to 20 games, with each team playing 10 at home and 10 on the road.

Since 2016, the Pac-12 leads all conferences in Final Four appearances (6), NCAA Tournament wins (70), NCAA Tournament winning percentage (.707) and WBCA All-Americans (13). In the first year using the NCAA Evaluation Tool (NET) for women’s basketball, four of the top 10 teams in the final NET rankings for 2021 were from the Pac-12 in national champion STANFORD (No. 1), national runner-up ARIZONA (No. 7), UCLA (No. 8) and OREGON (No. 10), a total double any other league. The Pac-12 was also the nation’s top-rated conference by RPI in three of the final five seasons (2016, 2017, 2020) that metric was used by the Division I Women’s Basketball Committee.

Eleven All-Conference, four All-Defensive, and four All-Freshman Team honorees are set to return for the 2021-22 season, including the league’s Co-Defensive Player of the Year (Anna Wilson, STAN), Freshman of the Year (Charlisse Leger-Walker, WSU) and Sixth Player of the Year (Lacie Hull, STAN). Five McDonald’s All-Americans are also slated to join the Pac-12 this coming season in OREGON STATE’s Greta Kampschroeder, STANFORD’s Brooke Demetre and Kiki Iriafen, and USC’s Clarice Akunwafo and Rayah Marshall.
