AP Poll: Oregon remains in top-10 after loss to Stanford

Following a thumping win over No. 25 Cal on Thursday, Oregon lost to No. 24 Stanford on Sunday, but the then-No. 6 Ducks only dropped to No. 9 in Monday’s AP Top-25 poll.

UCLA possesses the highest ranking of any Pac-12 school at No. 8. Oregon State is ranked No. 16, while Stanford climbed to No. 17 following a sweep of Oregon State and Oregon. The only other Pac-12 school in the top-25 is Arizona State at No. 25.

The Ducks — whose loss to Stanford featured a 31-point second half from the Cardinal’s Brittany McPhee — are now tied with Stanford atop the Pac-12 standings with both team holding 10-2 records in conference play.

Oregon has a road trip this upcoming weekend at the Washington schools.

Following Oregon’s loss to Stanford, head coach Kelly Graves was positive off a return to winning ways for Oregon, which is still without senior Lexi Bando. The only Ducks to score in the loss were the starting five.

“We’ll shake it off,” Graves said. “We lost to Oregon State a few weeks ago and turned right around and played one of the best games we played all year two days later. … We’ve shown the ability to bounce back.”
