Oregon comes to the XL Center Wednesday to play the No. 1 UConn women.
This is basically all you need to know about the mindset of the Ducks, coached by Paul Westhead, the former NBA, men’s college and WNBA offensive guru:
In Sunday’s game against Sacramento State, which the Ducks lost, 97-85 in Eugene, the teams combined for 182 field-goal attempts and broke the NCAA women’s basketball record for three-point attempts, combining for 86 shots from long range. That mark was last set on Nov. 26, 1999 by Ole Miss and Bowling Green.
