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.
