Box Score

Despite Blake Dietrick’s career-high 26 points, a second half run by Oregon was too much to overcome for the Princeton women’s basketball team in a 110-90 loss Sunday afternoon in Eugene, Ore. The defeat drops the Tigers to 3-4 on the year, while improving the Ducks to 4-2. 

The Pacific Northwest proved extremely hospitable to Dietrick, as the junior point guard averaged 22.5 points over the weekend. At Oregon she paced Princeton with 10 points over the first nine minutes and finished the half eclipsing her pervious career-high with 21 points. The patterned floor at Matthew Knight Arena was anything but distracting, seeing Dietrick go 8-for-8 from the field and 5-for-5 from beyond the arc.

She closed out the day 10-for-13 from the field and 6-for-8 from three-point to set a team single-game season high in points, while grabbing a team-high six rebounds.

The first half saw the Tigers shoot 54.1 percent (20-for-37) and carry a 55-46 advantage into halftime.

Princeton quickly expanded its lead to 11, 57-46, to open the second half, but the Tigers were facing a resurgent Oregon side. The Ducks responded with an 11-0 run to tie things up, 70-70, heading inside the 14-minute mark and from there things broke down for good for the Tigers.

Princeton’s once double figure lead eroded, as Oregon took its first advantage 74-73 at 10:31. The Ducks’ initial 11-5 run to take a one-point lead was prolonged into a 29-10 rally, making it a 101-83 game with 3:49 left in regulation.

Oregon outscored Princeton 64-35 in the second half.

Joining Dietrick in double figures were Michelle Miller and Alex Wheatley with 15 points apiece, and Taylor Williams who had 11 points. Princeton has had at least two players score in double figures in all seven games this season.

Princeton remains on the road for its next pair of games, beginning at Navy on Friday, Dec. 6 at 7 p.m.
