IT'S A MINI-CIVIL WAR!   As of today, the top vote-getter out of the ten nationwide nominees is Ruth Hamblin of Oregon State with 21.3% of the votes.  Jillian's votes are currently just 1/10th of that.   Therefore the UO Fast Break Club is beginning a four week campaign to boost Jillian's numbers. 

Each day we will post a 'Player Card' photo from the UO Fast Break Club's photo archives on Facebook and Twitter with one of Jillian's awesome game photos, AND a reminder to go vote!

The above photos just give a hint of what the game was like!  The full galleries of game photos are now posted both on Facebook for those of you who would love to share your favorites with your Facebook friends AND on Flickr for those of you who aren't Facebook users.  (It's getting real complicated these days with so many digital choices but we strive to serve everyone!)

The UO vs USC game was pretty memorable, and not just for the seniors.  Freshman Maite Cazorla earned a career high 26 points!  Can't wait to see what she does next year!  Jillian Alleyne is up to her 92nd career double-double and she hit 7 of 9 free throws! 

"The Ducks (20-7, 9-7 Pac-12) have only failed to beat four of their opponents this season – Oregon State, UCLA, Arizona State and Stanford.  All four were in the top 10 of the NCAA’s RPI ranking as of Monday."  Rob Moseley, GoDucks.com

If the UO vs USC win isn't enough excitement for one day, it was also Senior Day and the last UO Fast Break Club Member's Social for the season.  Read more about Senior Day activities and see the FBC Social photo album here.

Big Crowd Turns Out for Senior Day!

The Turn-Around Team is getting ready to graduate!  Jillian Alleyne, Lexi Petersen, Liz Brenner, Jordan Loera, Katie Gruys and first year Duck, Kat Cooper are players that have broken records, made their mark in multiple sports, been elevated from walk-on player to scholarship player and been there for the team every step of the way, especially this season.  They have helped this UO WBB 2015-16 team gel into something special.  We wish we had them for four more years but they might disagree.

A big part of being a member of the UO Fast Break Club is having the chance to make these student athletes feel like they have another big family rooting for them.  Every year we hear players say one of the things that made the UO Women's Basketball program so special was the incredible support and enthusiasm of the fans. 

160221-seniorday-1391Saying goodbye to these young women is hard but it is also exciting to see where their lives will be taking them.   And sometimes they come back to visit!

The FBC members were treated to a visit at our Social from 2015 UO WBB graduate, Amanda Delgado who is now the Director of Player Development at New Mexico State!  Way to go Amanda!

THERE’S A SOCIAL FOR FBC MEMBERS THIS SUNDAY, AFTER THE ARIZONA GAME!

160117 soc quad 2Here’s yet another opportunity for UO Fast Break Club Members to meet and mingle with our wonderful Ducks and their coaches.  The players being highlighted this social are Lexi Bando, Mar’Shay Moore, Jacinta Vandenberg, & Megan Trinder.

The UO Fast Break Club Socials and annual FBC summer BBQ are the cornerstone opportunity for our current Fast Break Club members to meet the coaches, players, and their families.
 
There are at least four post-game socials each UO WBB season and there are at least three ways to become a Member of the UO Fast Break Club so you can attend!  Membership also guarantees your invitation to our Annual Summer BBQ & Picnic where we meet the new and returning players and coaches. 

~ You can join at the door of any Social. 
~ You can download a membership brochure and mail in a check. 
~ Or you now can pay online by credit card! 

160117 soc quad 1Here’s what's in store for the Sunday, January 31, 2016 FBC Members Social:

  1. The doors will be opened after the game. Folks on the gate list will be admitted. Families & friends of coaches & players also admitted. Each person will be given a raffle ticket.
  2. Folks can pick up snacks, find a seat, and chat.
  3. About 10-15 minutes into the social, we will hold the raffle (door prize) drawing, usually with a player drawing. [Takes 5 min]
  4. * We will invite the four featured players forward for an “ice-breaker” conducted by Lynell Stokes. She’ll come ready to play a game called "3 things in 5 seconds".
    Essentially, the players, one at a time, are asked to answer a question that starts out with “Name 3 things…” When they answer they hit a buzzer to stop the time. They have to answer within 5 seconds. If they do they get a point. Example questions are: Name 3 things you do to get ready before a game, Name 3 things you do to prepare for an exam Name 3 things you do on your day off, Name 3 of your favorite musicians, etc. It’s a fun game and it’s competitive. We think the players will love it – it’s fast, funny and allows us to learn something new about the players. It won’t take much time either.
  5. A coach will then take over, asking each player in turn to come forward. The coach will comment on the player, share insights about her, etc. then give the player time to speak. After that, the coach will allow questions to the player from the floor.
  6. When all four players have been featured, the social will move to the “mingle” part.

    *If the players are busy giving autographs after the game and will arrive later than 15 minutes, then we’ll ask a coach to speak to the us about the game, and recent games too.

Did you know that FBC members can bring a guest to a social?  The Fast Break Club member inviting the guest needs to fill out a form at the door before entering. A guest can visit only once this season. We will have Membership brochures at the door too, since we're assuming you are bringing a guest in hopes they will join the Fast Break Club!
