It wasn’t the way the Oregon Ducks women’s basketball team wanted to end their short trip to the Midwest.
Oregon was scheduled to play Northwestern tonight in Evanston, Ill., but the Wildcats had to suspend all team activities because of a COVID-19 outbreak in their program.
Northwestern is 9-3 overall and it was going to be a nice win on the Ducks resume should they have been able to get the road victory. Since it’s a non-conference game, the contest will not be rescheduled.
Oregon is coming off a 68-56 loss at Kansas State on Saturday. With the cancellation, the Ducks won’t see action until Dec. 31 as they open Pac-12 play with Utah at Matthew Knight Arena.
Hopefully, by the time New Year’s Eve rolls around, the Ducks will be completely healthy as they’ve missed point guard Te-Hina Paopao for most of the season. Guard Endyia Rogers and forward Nyara Sabally just came back from injury.
