    TIGHT RACE: The Pac-10 season is just three weeks in and it is already a tight race, with 18 of the 27 games played being decided by 10 points or less. It should be another exciting week, with two of the nation's top-scoring teams in Stanford and Oregon clashing in Eugene, Ore., on Jan. 23. Bragging rights are on the line, again, with the Arizona teams facing off in Tucson on Jan. 24. Both those matchups will be televised nationally on Fox Sports Net. UCLA and USC head to Washington and Washington State for the weekend, while California takes on Oregon and Oregon State. After the matchup with the Ducks, the Cardinal close out the weekend at the Beavers' Gill Coliseum.

    WHAT A GAME!: It was expected to be a good matchup on Jan. 16 as Oregon headed to Arizona. The senior-laden Ducks are having one of their best season's in recent memory and leads the nation in scoring, while the young Wildcats have shown improvement from last year and have a pair of young impact players. It turned out to be a record-breaking afternoon with the Wildcats coming out on top, 119-112.
    Arizona set the Pac-10 record for points scored in a league game and Oregon's points were the most by a losing team in a Conference game. With a combined 231 points, it was the highest-scoring game in Pac-10 women's basketball history, besting the previous mark which was set in 1989 by 10.

    Three players scored in the 30s, led by FR G Davellyn Whyte's 39 to set the single-game Arizona scoring record. Oregon's JR F Nicole Canepa netted 38 in the losing effort, tying Oregon's single-game record and the most ever scored by a Duck in a Pac-10 game. With Arizona's JR F Ify Ibekwe contributing 32 points, it was the first time in the program's history two players had scored 30+ points.

    TALK ABOUT OFFENSE: The 2009-10 campaign has featured high-scoring games, including the recent result at Arizona where the Wildcats defeated Oregon, 119-112. Eight different players have already recorded 30+ point outings with more than half the season still left to be played, the most in the Pac-10 since eight different players achieved the feat in 2004. Only the Big 12 has had more players reach the 30-point plateau (10) this season.

    Eight players have scored 30+ points nine times this year. In 2006, six players had 30+ point performances 12 times. Arizona FR G Davellyn Whyte scored 39 points against the Ducks, a Pac-10 single-season high. She is also the only player so far this year to tally multiple 30-point games.
