Texas Southern’s bad day started when their game jerseys got stolen from their hotel, forcing them to play in their practice jerseys, and it only got worse when they suffered a 99-63 loss to Oregon Saturday afternoon in front of 9,159 fans at Matthew Knight Arena. 

In their second game of the 2019 season, the No. 1 Oregon Ducks defeated the Utah State Aggies 109-52 at Matthew Knight Arena. Coming off a 89-47 victory in Monday’s season opener against Northeastern, the Ducks had more to prove. 

Taylor Chavez watched her team in defeat from the sidelines during last year’s Final Four loss. Due to injury, she was forced to observe her team’s highest highs and lowest lows during its historic NCAA Tournament run without lacing up and stepping onto the court.
