CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) Two ranked teams, two intense rivalry games and two raucous sellouts: Women's college basketball is enjoying a renaissance in the Pacific Northwest where Oregon and Oregon State are among the nation's elite teams again this season.
Oregon (24-2, 13-1 Pac-12) is ranked No. 2 in this week's AP Top 25, for its highest ranking ever. Oregon State (21-5, 11-3) is ranked No. 12.
Both teams, located just 50 miles apart, moved in the latest rankings following Oregon's 77-68 victory over the Beavers on Friday in Eugene, with the Ducks jumping a spot and Oregon State falling from No. 9.
