    RHEA SETS RECORD: Oregon State sophomore Talisa Rhea has set the bar high for the 2008-09 campaign. In the team's first game of the season, Rhea sunk a Pac-10 Conferece-record 10 three pointers, leading the Beavers to a 100-45 win over Sacramento State on Nov. 16. She ended with 42 points on the evening, tying for the fifth-highest single-game total in OSU history.

    Rhea broke the Conference mark which was origninally set on Dec. 21, 1992 by Stanford's Molly Goodenbour against Tennessee, making nine that day. Former Cardinal Lindsey Yamasaki tied the mark against Washington on Feb. 24, 2001.


    2009 SATE FARM PAC-10 WOMEN'S BASKETBALL TOURNAMENT: The State Farm Pac-10 Women's Basketball Tournament moves to Los Angeles to the Galen Center on USC's campus, March 12-15.

    The Tournament made its debut in 2002 and was held on at the University of Oregon in Eugene, Ore. The Conference's premier women's sporting event moved to the HP Pavilion at San Jose in 2003 and remained there through 2008.

    The winner of the 10-team tournament receives the league's automatic bid to the NCAA Division I Women's Basketball Championship. The tournament seeds and Conference regular season Champion are determined by the 18-game regular-season Pac-10 schedule.

    ROAD TO ST. LOUIS GOES THROUGH THE PAC-10: For teams looking to get to St. Louis for the NCAA Final Four, they may have to go through Pac-10 country. League schools hosting the first and second rounds are USC at the Galen Center and Washington at the Bank of America Arena. Dates for both those sites are March 21 and 23. California's Haas Pavilion was selected one of four sites for the NCAA Sweet Sixteen and Elite Eight on March 28 and 30.

    The Final Four is slated to be held on April 5 and 7 at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis.
