The Lady Ducks made a statement in Sunday’s game against the No. 19 Stanford Cardinal.

Matthew Knight Arena was buzzing after Oregon pulled off the upset, defeating Stanford 62-55 in the Ducks’ senior game. The win added to the Ducks’ 13-16 (6-12 Pac-12) record going into the Pac-12 tournament this coming Thursday in Seattle. With their huge win over Stanford the Ducks will be seeded as No. 10 going into their first game of the tournament against the No. 7 seed Washington State Cougars.

The Ducks’ senior night started out appropriately as senior guard Katelyn Loper drained the first basket of the game. The team continued its early success by going on a 7-0 run, until Standford’s Bonnie Samuelson scored a three-pointer for the Cardinal’s first basket of the game.
