Ducks Open at No. 10 in AP Poll

Nov 10, 2020

EUGENE, Ore. – The Oregon women's basketball team will open the 2020-21 season as the No. 10 ranked team in the nation, the Associated Press announced Tuesday morning with the release of its preseason top-25 poll.
No. 10 is the third-highest preseason ranking in program history; Oregon was No. 1 in the AP poll for the first time in program history to open the 2019-20 season after kicking off its 2018-19 Final Four run with a No. 3 national ranking. The Ducks opened 2017-18 at No. 11, the first of four straight preseason top-15 rankings.

The Ducks have now been ranked in the AP top-25 for 60 straight polls, the eighth-longest active streak in the nation, including 59 consecutive top-10 rankings. No. 11 is the lowest Oregon has been ranked during its 60-poll streak.
Oregon is one of four Pac-12 teams in the preseason top-10, along with No. 2 Stanford, No. 7 Arizona and No. 9 UCLA. Oregon State gives the conference five teams in the top-25 at No. 18.
