SEATTLE, Wash. (KOIN) -- Duck domination.
That's what happened inside Key Arena in Seattle Friday as the Oregon Ducks women's basketball team played their first game of the postseason in the Pac-12 tournament against Colorado.
From tip-off to whistle, Kelly Graves' squad showed they mean business.
Satou Sabally, the Pac-12 freshman of the year, hit back-to-back 3's in the first quarter. That sparked the Ducks on a hot shooting game, including hitting their first 10 shots of the 3rd quarter.
Oregon dominated with an 84-47 win over Colorado.
"I tell you there might be some tournament jitters but I don't think we had it and I was just impressed with how we, our energy, both ends of the floor, defensively, offensively we were on point," Graves said. "We spread the floor, we were shooting it well, the right people were getting the shots. It was just a really good game. I told them after the game, they were inspiring and I was a really proud coach."
Sophomore Sabrina Ionescu said they knew Colorado was going to play hard the whole game.
"You never know what happens in March, so we did not want to let them get back into the game and we wanted to continue to get better every possession, every play. And then we let our bench come in and contribute and play good minutes, so it was nice to see," she said.
The Ducks continue play this weekend in the tournament semi-finals.
