The Ducks host Baylor with a spot in the Sweet 16 on the line for a pair of teams who fell in the second round in 2017.
Lindsey Vander Weide notched 18 kills, 10 digs and six blocks, while hitting .447 as Oregon moved past New Mexico State in four sets to open the NCAA Tournament in Eugene.
#5 Wisconsin hosts #3 Minnesota as the marquee match of the week, but plenty of others should be kept an eye on.
Raquel Lazaro had nearly 60 assists and over 20 digs as she fed the USC pins enough to down (RV) Arizona State on a loaded night for the Pac-12.
After leading the now 15th-ranked Ducks to back-to-back sweeps over 17th-ranked UCLA and 12th-ranked USC, junior Taylor Borup earned her first career AVCA Player of the Week honor.
Oregon’s Taylor Borup was tabbed as Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week, while Stanford’s Morgan Hentz and Oregon’s Brooke Nuneviller were honored as defensive player and rookie of the week.
#2 Stanford was the only favored Pac-12 team to win on Sunday. #20 Washington State, #19 Oregon, (RV) Arizona State and Cal all pulled off upsets.
Junior Taylor Borup made the most of her first Pac-12 start, registering a season-high 13 kills and a career-high 16 digs in Oregon’s history-making sweep of UCLA. It marks the first double-double of her career.
19th-ranked Oregon claimed its first-ever sweep of 21st-ranked UCLA in Los Angeles, Calif., and the first overall since 2014 to get back on track this week. 2nd-ranked Stanford kept its perfect Pac-12 start going with a 4-set win over Utah, which received votes this week.
Oregon has now won the past three times they have faced Hawaii.
