EUGENE, Ore. - The Oregon Ducks Women's Basketball team continued their string of victories with a win over the North Dakota Fighting Hawks Saturday in Mathew Knight Arena. In the win, Jillian Alleyne ran up her 21st consecutive double-double with 17 points and 11 rebounds, matching her record of consecutive double-doubles last season.
Fifth year senior Lexi Petersen added to the winning score with 13 points; Lexi Bando tacked on 14 and Kat Cooper added 12.
At the end of the game Alleyne said, "It's just being focused, knowing I can do it. Getting the double-double is not a mentality I go into the game with. It comes with how I play."
Coach Kelly Graves said, "I thought that was a really good effort tonight. Kind of like a business-like effort. They fought hard to the end. Their coach gets it; I thought their team played well tonight. I was proud of our group. We were pretty consistent all the way through at both ends of the floor. And I liked how we got aggressive toward the end of the game. Good game."
