Rogers Rallies Oregon Women Past Washington 52-50 in Pac-12
Endyia Rogers scored 10 of her 28 points in the fourth quarter and ninth-seeded Oregon pulled out a 52-50 win over eighth-seeded Washington on Thursday in the first round of the Pac-12 Tournament.
The Ducks (17-13), who have won three straight, face top-seeded and sixth-ranked Stanford in the quarterfinals on Thursday.
Rogers had two baskets in a 9-0 run that was capped by a Te-Hina Paopao 3-pointer that put the Ducks on top 45-43. Hannah Stines scored the next three baskets for Washington, one a 3-pointer, but Rogers did the same with her jumper giving Oregon a 51-50 lead with 1:28 to play.
The Huskies then missed two shots on their next possession before the Ducks snared two offensive rebounds on their possession. That took the clock to 15 seconds and Washington had to foul four times to send Oregon to the foul line.
With 2.9 seconds left, Chance Gray made 1 of 2 free throws before a long jumper by Washington's Trinity Oliver was off the mark.
Paopao scored 13 points for Oregon and Rogers had a career-high 11 rebounds.
Haley Van Dyke led Washington (15-13) with 12 points, Stines had 11 and Oliver and Dalayah Daniels 10 each. Daniels also had 11 rebounds.
The game was tied at 36 after a Paopao layup midway through the third quarter. The Ducks then missed two straight shots before making six straight, five by Rogers. Oregon shot 36%.
After Daniels put Washington up 38-36, the Huskies were 5 of 18, missing their last three to shoot 37%.
