No. 7 UCLA and No. 10 OREGON lead five Pac-12 women’s basketball teams in the latest Assocated Press poll. At least five teams have been in the writers’ top 25 for the fourth-consecutive week. Four teams are in the USA Today/WBCA Coaches poll, the Bruins and the Ducks owning a No. 7 and No. 10 ranking, as well. The AP tabbed STANFORD No. 16, OREGON STATE No. 21 and CALIFORNIA No. 24. The Cardinal are No. 14 in the that poll and the Beavers are No. 19 ... USC is the only team in the Conference and one of 27 in the NCAA to remain undefeated. The Trojans’ gave head coach Mark Trakh his 400th-career win last week at Hawai’i ... The candidate lists for the Naismith Award and Wade Trophy were released on Wednesday and seven from the Pac-12 appear on one or both lists. UCLA’s Monique Billings and Jordin Canada, CALIFORNIA’s Kristine Anigwe and OREGON’s Sabrina Ionescu appear on both lists. The four are joined by the Ducks’ Ruthy Hebard, OSU’s Marie Gulich and Stanford’s Brittany McPhee are on the Naismith Award list ... Stanford’s Alanna Smith was voted the Pac-12 Player of the Week after averaging 23.7 points and 11.7 rebounds per game last week. Cal’s Kianna Smith was voted the Pac-12 Freshman of the Week after a 12-assist outing last week ... Ionescu continues to threaten the NCAA’s career triple-doubles record after already tying the Pac-12 record. Her next triple-double would not only break the Conference’s mark that has stood since 2004, but also tie the NCAA record which was set in 1988 ... On Sunday, Stanford takes on its fourth ranking opponent, traveling to No. 9 Baylor.

Picking up where Pac-12 women’s basketball left off last year with chasing down records, OREGON’s Sabrina Ionescu kicked off the 2017-18 campaign posting a triple-double in the first game of the season and already has two. With those two occurrences, she has already tied the Pac-12 carer mark and is one shy of tying the NCAA record.
