Oregon softball suffered its first loss of the season in the team’s final game in the Puerto Vallarta College Challenge to Ole Miss in nine innings. The Ducks, now 9-1 on the year, next travel to Cathedral City, California to play in the Mary Nutter Collegiate Classic, which features numerous ranked teams as well as multiple squads that played alongside Oregon in the Women’s College World Series last year. Before the team’s Tuesday afternoon practice, members of the Ducks met with and spoke to the media. The full interviews are below.

Oregon Women’s Basketball survives in an overtime battle against the no. 7 UCLA Bruins, 101-94. Three particular Ducks honored the senior players with standout performances: Satou Sabally, Maite Carzola and Sabrina Ionescu. All three scored at least 23 points. Both Southern California and UCLA forced overtime at Matthew Knight Arena but both could not pull off the upset. With just two Pac 12 games left, the Ducks stand in first place at 15-2 while Stanford trails just one game back. Oregon’s home game schedule concludes but the Ducks will travel to the desert to face the Arizona Wildcats and the Arizona State Sun Devils next week.
