*Lineups based on last game

The Wildcats finish up their two game home stand with a matchup against the Oregon Ducks. Arizona is currently on seven game losing streak, while the Ducks are on a five game losing streak.

Last Time Out:

The Wildcats returned home to face the #8/#9 Oregon State Beavers and continued their streak of double-digit losses. It was the seventh straight game the Wildcats have lost by double-digits, losing this one 73-55. Candice Warthen had a game high 22 points and LaBrittney Jones also reached double-digits, totaling 11 points in this one.

Oregon traveled to Tempe to face #13 Arizona State and squandered a halftime lead, en route to a 70-58 loss. Jillian Alleyne led the Ducks with a game high 17 points and 12 rebounds. Drea Toler joined Alleyne in double figures with 10 points of her own on the night.

Scouting the Wildcats:

The Wildcats are in a tough part of their schedule and the wins are proving hard to come by, as they have dropped eight of their last nine games, and the last seven in a row. Shooting guard Candice Warthen leads the team in scoring (13.2), assists (3.1), and steals (1.1) and is third on the team with 5.8 rebounds per game. Warthen is just 18 points away from 1,000 career points in her Arizona career. The leading rebounder for the Wildcats is LaBrittney Jones who averages 6.0 rebounds per game, to go along, with her 7.6 points per game. The Wildcats use a nine-player rotation with all nine players averaging 14 minutes or more.

The Wildcats score 58.9 ppg (11th in the conference) and give up 64.9 ppg (fifth in the conference), for a -5.9 scoring margin (last in the conference). Arizona shoots 36.5% from the field (last in the conference) and 26.9% from behind the arc. (last in the conference) The defense forces opponents to shoot 40.8% from the field (10th in the conference) and 27.9% from behind the arc (second in the conference).

Scouting the Ducks:

Forward down low Jillian Alleyne, who is the second leading rebounder in the country and the fifth leading scorer in the conference, leads Oregon. Alleyne averages 16.8 points per game and a ridiculous 14.9 rebounds per game. She is going to be tough down low for Arizona. The two Lexi’s, Petersen and Bando, also average double figures in points, getting 11.4 and 10.9 per game, respectively. The Ducks use a nine-woman rotation with all nine players averaging at least 10 minutes per game.

The Ducks average 65.6 points per game (tenth in the conference) and give up 67.6 (tenth in the conference), for a -2.0-scoring margin (ninth in the conference). They shoot 39.7% from the field (ninth in the conference) and 36.0% from three (fifth in the conference), while holding their opponents to 39.7% shooting from the field (eighth in the conference) and 31.8% from three (sixth in the conference).
