Support UO Women's Basketball. Join the Fast Break Club!

It's time to join or renew your membership in the UO Fast Break Club.

Here's what Coach Kelly Graves says about the Fast Break Club:

Welcome the 2023-24 season of Oregon Women’s Basketball! After returning from an amazing International Trip that you helped make possible, we are excited to be home and get to work on the coming season.

There are many new faces with the program, both players and staff.  Tre Simmons, new assistant coach, comes to us after a 14-year professional career playing overseas and although he completed his collegiate career at Washington, he is now proudly wearing the Oregon Yellow and Green!

On the court, we have six players returning, and we have added seven new players. New to the team will be three freshmen, a redshirt sophomore, and three senior transfers that I know you will be excited to watch! Fun Fact: three players on the roster are from Oregon!

We can't wait to be back playing in MKA in front of the best fans in the nation.

We are so appreciative of what has been built here in Eugene, and are grateful to you, the Fast Break Club, for your generous and continued support. Each and every Fast Break Club member is a vital part of our success. Thanks for all you do and GO DUCKS!

UPDATE: Jillian traded to Connecticut Sun! Jillian Alleyne was picked in Round 2 by the Phoenix Mercury!

160414 ODE photoUPDATE 6/26/2016:  The Connecticut Sun announced today it has acquired rookie Courtney Williams and the draft rights to Jillian Alleyne, as well as a second round pick in the 2017 WNBA Draft in a trade that sends Kelsey Bone to the Phoenix Mercury.

"Alleyne went 20th overall to the Phoenix Mercury, becoming the highest-picked Oregon player in WNBA Draft history."
    Jonathan Hawthorne,

Jillian will be joining the likes of Brittney Griner and Diana Taurasi in Phoenix!  Mercury GM Jim Pitman: “Jillian’s career at Oregon speaks for itself. … She’s someone who has first round talent."

We all knew that.  It's wonderful to see that her season-ending injury did not end her WNBA prospects.  There is no word for 'quit' in Alleyne's vocabulary and she will work just as hard at rehab as she would on the court.  That work ethic and can-do attitude will serve her well fitting into the Phoenix Mercury's game plans.

You can follow Jilly-O's progress on Twitter at @SuperrJaay.

And from everyone at the UO Fast Break Club, "CONGRATULATIONS JILLIAN!"  We will love watching your career take off!

 


The WNBA draft is TODAY!!!

Better known around here as SuperrJaay Day Thursday, April 14, 2016 is WNBA Draft Day!

1st Round of the WNBA draft starts at 4pm (PT) on ESPN2, followed by the 2nd & 3rd Rounds on ESPNU.

The UConn-machine proved too much for us to overcome with Breanna Stewart and Moriah Jefferson hitting the vote gathering efforts with an immediate 22+% of the vote and we just didn't have the clicks to move the decimal point over enough for Jillian.  

This is just the fan vote part of the Senior Class Award though so you never know!   The final award decision is based on four areas of achievement:  Community ~ Classroom ~ Character ~ Competition

"Fan votes will be combined with those of the media and Division I head coaches to determine the winners.  The Senior CLASS Award recipients will be announced during the 2016 NCAA Men’s Final Four® and NCAA Women’s Final Four®."

Whatever the results, thanks for taking a trip with us down memory lane of Jill's four years as Duck number one in record after record book.

We can't wait to see what you'll be up to next Jill!
You will have Duck-green fans where ever you go!
