Oregon will play its lone exhibition game at Matthew Knight Arena when it hosts Carroll College on Friday at 6 p.m. The No. 20 Ducks enter the season as one of just seven programs to be voted inside the top 20 of the AP top-25 poll each of the last six seasons, an elite group that includes Baylor, Louisville, Maryland, South Carolina, Stanford and UConn. UO's 2022-23 roster includes six returners to pair with the No. 2 recruiting class in the country, highlighted by four freshmen ranked in ESPNW's top 60 recruits.
The Ducks welcome back six players from last season's NCAA Tournament team. Oregon will be led by a pair of All-Pac-12 selections from a year ago in Te-Hina Paopao and Endyia Rogers. The backcourt duo was joined by Sedona Prince on the preseason all-Pac-12 team. Additionally, the Ducks bring back Taylor Hosendove, Ahlise Hurst and Phillipina Kyei. Two players from that group have garnered national recognition during the preseason, as Paopao was named to the Nancy Lieberman Award watch list and Prince was selected to the Lisa Leslie Award watch list.
Oregon's roster will also feature five newcomers made up of four freshmen and one transfer. The four incoming freshman (Kennedy Basham, Chance Gray, Jennah Isai and Grace VanSlooten) were each ranked in the top 60 of high school recruits nationally, according to ESPNW. Additionally, Pac-12 veteran Taya Hanson joins the Ducks after four seasons at Arizona State.
