Chrishae Rowe Dismissed for Team Rules Violation

Tonight is the opening game for the UO WBB team with an exhibition game against Westmont at 2pm at Matthew Knight Arena but the game will unfold in a way none of us expected.

Yesterday (Friday, 11/7/14) the Fast Break Club received a notice from the UO Athletic Department that Chrishae Rowe had been dismissed from the UO WBB team for a team rules violation.  Today there were a number articles in the media about this with additional info from follow-up interviews with Coach Kelly Graves.  (See below links.)

While Coach Graves did not elaborate on what the violation was he did state that there was no unlawful behavior on Rowe's part and that she is still enrolled in the UofO on an athletic scholarship.

STEPPING UP

While fans are disappointed they will not see this talented break-away scorer don the green and yellow #21 jersey this season, many realize that Coach Graves is focused on building a 'team of players' who have a commitment to the team and can "step up" their game and work together to create scoring opportunities both this season and beyond.

"Our mission is to create something great here at the University of Oregon and our players need to buy in to all aspects of that mission," Graves said in a news release.

"Our team culture, long-term, is more important than wins and losses short-term."

The new tone of play was evident to fans during the first open scrimmage held last month.  (Click here for video of 2014-15 players, coaches and open scrimmage.)  The players definitely have 'game' and are ready to learn a new style of play and start this season fresh.

FANS ALSO HAVE AN IMPORTANT ROLE TO PLAY.

It's time for us to 'step up' and let these student athletes know that we are here to support them one and all.  There is a great line-up of talent that has the opportunity to make a big difference for UO WBB.  Let’s also step up and make a difference for them!

EUGENE, Ore.
 - Behind sophomore Jillian Alleyne’s incredible performance, Oregon strung a second straight Pac-12 win together with a victory against Washington. The Ducks ran past the Huskies, 101-85, Sunday at Matthew Knight Arena.

Alleyne tallied season-high totals with 35 points and 25 rebounds, providing the answer to any potential Washington (10-9, 3-5 Pac-12) challenge. After topping Washington State on Friday for its first conference win, Oregon (11-8, 2-6 Pac-12) secured a home sweep of the Washington schools.

"Alleyne (34), Lexi Petersen (23), Chrishae Rowe (17) and Katelyn Loper (16) scored in double-figures as Oregon broke the 100-point barrier for the first time in conference play. Alleyne extended her double-double streak to 15 consecutive games.
