ON TAP THIS WEEK
EUGENE – In its final action of the regular season, the No. 13 University of Oregon volleyball team (20-8, 13-7) plays both of its Civil War matches in the same week for the first time in 26 years of Pac-10/12 play.

In the series sponsored by PacificSource Health Plans and Northwest Ford Dealers, the Ducks seek their fourth straight win vs. the Beavers, and have won nine of their last 10 matches under seventh-year head coach Jim Moore. In his tenure, OSU won only the first two showdowns in 2005 (3-2, 3-0) and once since in 2009 (3-2 in Corvallis).

Oregon State comes off its biggest upset in school history last weekend when it staked a 3-2 win at then-No. 3 California  – also its first win against a team in the upper half of the league this year.

The Ducks come off their second-ever pair of weekend road wins at then-No. 5 Stanford and then-No. 3 California (and fourth overall), thanks to their five-set decisions over the returning league co-champions.

UO now sports a best-ever five wins over top-seven ranked teams this year after home victories vs. then-No. 1 UCLA (3-2) and then-No. 7 Washington (3-0). Likewise in late August, UO upset then-No. 1 Penn State (3-1) to end the four-time defending national champions’ 94-match home win streak.

Later this weekend, the Ducks will tune into the 64-team NCAA Tournament field announcement on Sunday, November 27 on ESPN-U at 3 p.m. Pacific Time. The NCAA first and second rounds will be hosted the weekend of Thursday-Saturday, December 1-3 at 16 yet-to-be-announced sites nationally.

UO is tied for fifth place in the Pac-12 this week with No. 11 Washington with 13-7 marks, two matches behind both No. 6 Stanford and No. 10 California (third-tie, 15-6). All-time in Pac-10/12 play, UO’s best finish was a fourth-place effort in ’08 under Moore and ’86 and ’89 under Gerry Gregory.

RECENT DUCK HEROES
At then-No. 5 Stanford last weekend, freshman outside hitter Liz Brenner erupted for 31 kills – a league season high - and hit a team-season high .651. The next night, her 13 kills at then-No. 3 Cal was her 13th double-digit kill figure of the year, and she upped her season high in blocks (4.0).

Junior libero Haley Jacob logged 35 digs vs. the No. 5 Cardinal – Oregon’s second-highest total since the start of rally scoring in 2001, and only two behind its best-ever total in that span. She added 21 digs vs. the Bears – her seventh +20 tally of the season – and led the squad in the category for the 19th time this year.

Sophomore setter Lauren Plum claimed impressive double-doubles vs. Stanford (season high 60 assists, 11 digs) and Cal (57 assists, 14 digs) to give her a team-season high 12 on the year (second-best in the league among setters and underclassmen). Her season-high 60 assists against the Cardinal ranks fourth most in the league this year, and her four aces vs. the Bears tied a team season high. She also directed UO to a .292 hitting mark vs. the Cardinal (a Stanford opponent season high) and .245 mark vs. the Bears (the fourth-highest by a Cal foe in 2011).

Redshirt junior outside hitter Alaina Bergsma landed 14 kills and four blocks vs. then-No. 5 Stanford, and 16 kills, nine digs and three blocks vs. then-No. 3 Cal.

Sophomore middle blocker Ariana Williams landed 14 and 13 kills vs. the Cardinal and Bears, and added a .429 mark in the latter tilt – her 15th +.300 mark of the year.

Freshman middle blocker Savannah Paffen tied her blocks season high vs. then-No. 5 Stanford (5), then hit .400 against then-No. 3 Cal (and her six kills was one shy of her season best).

Junior outside hitter Katherine Fischer led the team in kills vs. the Bears (17), and added 15 digs for her ninth double-double of the year. She also posted 16 digs vs. the Cardinal – her seventh +15-dig effort in league play.

Junior middle blocker Milica Krstojevic added four blocks vs. then-No. 3 Cal – her team-best eighth match of the season with four blocks or more.


AROUND THE LEAGUE
In Pac-12 action last weekend, No. 1 USC swept ASU and Arizona at home; then-No. 2 UCLA lost to Arizona for the second time this year; then-No. 10 Washington swept Utah and Colorado on the road; Washington State lost 3-2 at Colorado and 3-1 at Utah; and Oregon State won 3-2 at then-No. 3 California and lost 3-1 at then-No. 5 Stanford.


DUCK–BEAVER HISTORY
UO sports a 53-41-1 all-time edge in the Civil War series, thanks to its 9-3 mark under head coach Jim Moore. Oregon is on a 9-1 run the last five years, and its only losses under its seventh-year Duck mentor came in Corvallis in 2009 (3-2), and in 2005 when OSU won 3-2 in Eugene and 3-0 in Corvallis.

Last year, Oregon won 3-1 in Corvallis (23-25, 25-18, 25-14, 25-19) and 3-0 in Eugene (25-15, 25-12, 25-16) – and the latter was its fifth via sweep the last six seasons.

In last year’s 3-0 decision, UO’s .433 hitting total was .001 shy of it season best vs. Santa Clara, and OSU’s .128 hitting mark was a season low by a Pac-12 foe vs. Oregon in 2010 (and fourth lowest overall).

Oregon’s All-Pac-10 outside hitter Heather Meyers hit .520 and landed 14 kills, and other notable stats came from Katherine Fischer (13K, .367) and Alaina Bergsma (11K, .500) and freshman Ariana Williams (7K, .500), and Lauren Plum (44 assists, 12 digs, 3 aces).

In the Corvallis tilt a month later last mid-November, UO held a.291-.188 hitting edge, and was again led offensively by Meyers (20K, .395, 4 aces). Bergsma rang up 18 kills; Fischer added 13 kills and 12 digs for a double-double; and Plum was just shy of a similar honor with her 51 assists and nine digs.


ON THE NCAA / PAC-12 CHARTS
In the Pac-12 this week, Oregon ranked second in kills (14.59 per set) and assists (13.43 p/s), and stood top 70 nationally in four categories: kills (seventh, 14.59 p/s), assists (11th, 13.43 p/s), win-loss percentage (55th, .714) and hitting (54th, .239).

On the individual front, sophomore setter Lauren Plum ranked second in the conference in assists and ninth nationally (11.77 per set). Similarly, redshirt junior outside hitter Alaina Bergsma stood third in points (5.06 p/s) and kills (4.45 p/s) in the league and 15th and 16th nationally, respectively.

Brenner’s 31 kills tied her for first in the Pac-12 with Meagan Ganzer for the season high, and her .651 hitting mark (31-K-3E-43A) was the best in the league of performances with 20 kills or more and eighth-best overall. Her 32.5 points in the five-set contests also put her fourth on the conference list, and for comparison’s sake the only other two league frosh with +20 kill totals are UA’s Madison Kingdon (20, .255 at Oregon State) and Utah’s Chelsey Schofield (21, .167 at Arizona State).

Bergstrom's 27 kills in the four-setter WSU is tied for a conference season best in a non-five set match and sixth-best overall, and her 26 vs. Stanford is tied for ninth-best overall. She also logged the Pac-12’s fifth-, and eighth-best point marks with her 29 in a five-set win vs. No. 1 UCLA and 28.5 in four-set wins at both ASU and WSU. Plum sports the league's best three-set assist total (52 vs. then-No. 7 UW) and her 58 assists at ASU and 56 vs. Utah are third- and fifth-best overall. Junior outside hitter Katherine Fischer's team-high four aces in the Utah sweep is tied for sixth-best in the league this year.

Sophomore middle blocker Ariana Williams has ranked top-10 several weeks in hitting recently, and was only .06 away this week with her team-season best mark (.309).

DUCK STARTER NOTES
-  Redshirt junior outside hitter Alaina Bergsma continued to rank among the Pac-12’s top outside hitters this week and ranks third in the league in points (5.06 per set) and kills (4.45 p/s), and 15th and 16th nationally, respectively. She has logged her six highest Duck career kill/point totals this season at WSU (27K, 28.5P), vs. No. 7 Stanford (26K, 27.5P), No. 1 UCLA (25K, 29P), at ASU (24K, 28.5P), vs. Minnesota (23K, 23.5P) and ASU (22K, 24P). Overall, she has topped .300 in eight matches, including one +.500 effort at American (.538, 17K-3E-26A). In mid-September, she picked up her second Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week award after she led the team in kills and points in all three wins vs. Cal Poly, Arizona and Arizona State, twice in hitting and once in blocks. She torched ASU for a then-Duck career high in points (25), 22 kills, a .391 hitting mark and match-high four blocks. Against the NCAA returnee Wildcats, she racked up 16 kills in the sweep and a .353 hitting mark. She claimed her second double-double of the season vs. Cal Poly with her UO digs best (14) and 14 kills. She was tabbed the Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week and AVCA Showcase All-Tournament the opening weekend after her first double-double of the year vs. then-No.12 Minnesota (23K, 11D) and impressive stats in the upset of then-No. 1 Penn State (19K, 9D). Overall in 2011, the USA Volleyball A2 National Team member has led UO in kills and points in 21 of the team’s first 28 matches, respectively. A returning All-Pac-10 Honorable Mention, she has logged 14 of the team’s top 18 kill totals this year (27, 26, 25, 24, 23, 22, 20, 19, 18 (x2), 17, 16 (x2), 15). She also owns 10 of the team’s top 11 point totals (29 vs. then-No. 1 UCLA, 28.5 at WSU/ASU, 27.5 vs. then-No. 7 Stanford, 24 vs. ASU and then-No. 3 Washington, 23.5 vs. then-No. 12 Minnesota, 21 vs. then-No. 1 Penn State, 20.5 vs. Utah, 20 vs. Seattle).

- Arguably Oregon’s most versatile player, junior outside hitter Katherine Fischer ranks second on the team in aces (0.21 p/s), kills (2.79 p/s), points (3.18 p/s) and digs (2.93 p/s), and is its current career points leader and sixth-best all-time (1,024.0). She has logged nine double-doubles this year – second-best on the squad and eighth-most in the Pac-12. Eight of those double-doubles have come in Pac-12 tilts vs. then-No. 1 UCLA (12 kills, 20 digs), then-No. 3 California (then-No. 7 Washington (10 kills, 18 digs), at then-No. 3 USC (10K, team season high 20 digs), at then-No. 6 UCLA (11K, 13 digs), vs. ASU (12 kills, 16 digs), at Colorado (14 kills, .542, 11 digs) and at Washington State (11 kills, 13 digs). In that same stretch, she logged the team’s season high in aces vs. Utah (4), and was just shy of another double-double (eight kills, nine digs). In the season opener at No. 1 Penn State, she claimed her season high in kills (19) and points (19.5), hit .317 against the four-time defending national champions, and fought through flu and dehydration the whole match in the 90-degree Exhibition Hall gym. In other non-conference matches, she notched her first double-double of the campaign in the three-set win over Seattle (11K, 11D), and had another +10 kill effort vs. Utah (18), then-No. 12 Minnesota (10) and double-digit dig totals at Delaware (11), at American (13) and vs. Portland State (10).

- Sophomore setter Lauren Plum continues to rank among the nation’s top setters and directs the fast-paced Oregon offense that ranks seventh nationally (14.59 per set). Her 11.77 assists per set average ranked ninth nationally and second in the league this week, and is ahead of last year’s pace (11.75) that ranked 12th nationally and tops among frosh. Her career-high 12 double-doubles this year stands second-best in the league among both underclassmen and setters. She posted her eight highest assist totals of the season in league play, seven of which were part of double-doubles at then-No. 5 Stanford (60 assists, 11 digs) and No. 3 California (57 assists, 14 digs), vs. Utah (57 assists, 12 digs) and No.1 UCLA (56 assists), at Washington State (54, 10 digs) and vs. ASU (53, 10 digs) and a three-set victory vs. then-No. 7 Washington (52, 12 digs). Her season-best assist total (60) stands fourth in league play, and she has four other marks with +55 (58, 57x2, 56) the last three weeks, while her 52 vs. the Huskies is the Pac-12 season best for a three-set match. In mid-October vs. the returning league co-champions she also scored double-doubles thanks to her highest career digs totals vs. then-No. 4 California (19, 26 assists) and then-No. 7 Stanford (17, 47 assists). Her other double-doubles came in three-set wins over returning Big West champion Portland State (33 assists, 10 digs) and returning NCAA qualifier Arizona (32 assists, 10 digs), and five-set loss to then-No. 12 Minnesota (47 assists, 11 digs), while she just missed another double-double in the sweep at Utah (39 assists, 9 digs). In the Pac-10 opener vs. Arizona, she connected on a season high three aces to help end a five-match series losing streak. On the all-time Duck charts, she leads Ducks career-wise in assists per set (11.76) and ranks sixth in total assists (2,458). All-time for Oregon season-wise, she also stood top 10 twice in both season assists (seventh, 1,246, 2010; seventh, 1,246, 2011) and assists per set (fifth, 11.77, 2011; sixth, 11.75, 2010). In early August before the season started, she helped the U.S. squad tie its best-ever finish (fourth, 4-4) in the 2011 FIVB World Junior Championships in Peru and started six matches. Last year she was an All-Pac-10 Freshman Team pick and was later tabbed to the 36-person USA Volleyball A2 National Team.

- Sophomore middle blocker Ariana Williams continued her offensive roll with 10 of her 15 .300 hitting marks this year in league play, including four  over .500 (.700, 7 kills vs. Colorado; .556, match-high 13 kills at then-No. 3 Washington; .545, 8 kills vs. Arizona; .529, 11 kills vs. then-No. 7 Washington). She also has four +.400 hitting marks – four of which came against returning NCAA qualifiers (.429, 13 kills at then-No. 3 California; .462, 8 kills at Arizona; . 414, career high 15 kills at then-No. 3 USC; and at Delaware .571, 10 kills). Among her  13 matches with +10 kills, others come at then-No. 5 Stanford (14), ASU (12), against then-No. 12 Minnesota (11K, .400), Washington State (10), Portland State (10, .292) and Arizona State (10, .286). Her season highs in blocks came vs. the No. 3 Trojans (5), No. 12 Gophers (4) and Wildcats (4), and has led the team in the category in 11 matches, and in hitting seven times.

- Freshman outside hitter Liz Brenner picked up her second Pac-12 Freshman of the Week honor this week after she tied the league season high in kills (31) at then-No. 5 Stanford. She also hit a team season high .651 against the nation’s second-ranked blocking team – the Pac-12’s eighth-best mark this year and best with 20 or more kills. The next night, her 13 kills at Cal - four shy of the team high - was her 13th double-digit kill figure of the year, and she also upped her season high in blocks (4.0). She landed her first league weekly honor in early November after wins at ASU and Arizona. She landed a career high in kills in the four-setter in Tempe (18) - the fourth-highest frosh mark in the Pac-12 in 2011 - and led the team in hitting (.371). In Tucson, she added nine kills - three off her three-set season high - and four digs. She also owns the team’s second- and sixth-best hitting mark of the campaigns in her collegiate debut at then-No. 1 Penn State (.579, 12K-1E-19A) and at Colorado (.526 mark, 12-2-19 (3 sets). In other recent action, she has had +10 kills vs. WSU (15), at No. 6 UCLA (13), vs. then-No. 7 Washington (12), at then-No. 3 Washington (10), WSU (10) and No. 3 USC (10) and vs. Utah (10), and her three blocks at WSU tied her season high. The prep All-American and two-time Oregon prep state player of the year has topped .300 in nine matches altogether, and others came at American (.636, 7K), and at Colorado (.467, 9K), against Liberty (.467, 9K), then-No. 12 Minnesota (.368, 10K) and Portland State (.375, 7K). Her season high in digs (6) came at then-No. 3 USC, and she had four the match before and after vs. No. 7 Stanford and at No. 6 UCLA. Her legacy as an impact player precedes her with 2010’s Under Armour All-America honor and state prep player of the year accolades the last two seasons. Off the volleyball court, the Portland, Ore., native was the state basketball player of the year last year, won two state titles in the shot put and runner-up honors in the javelin, and is also an 11-time world racquetball champion.

- The team’s starter at libero in all 28 matches this year, junior Haley Jacob logged the team’s digs season best last week at then-No. 5 Stanford (35) – also the third-best total in the Pac-12 this year. That mark also stood as Oregon’s second-highest total since the start of rally scoring in 2001 (and only two behind its best total in that span (Katie Swoboda, 37, at No. 5 UCLA (4s, 10/3/08)). She also owns the team’s next four-best marks vs. Utah (25), at ASU (23) and No. 3 Cal (21) and vs. Cal Poly (21) – and the latter is the team’s three-set season best. Among other top totals, she is tied for its sixth- and 10th-best totals with her 20 digs at then-No. 3 USC and vs. then-No. 7 Stanford and 19 in a sweep of Arizona. Overall, she has paced the team in digs and aces in 19 and five contests, respectively. She logged a career high three aces vs. ASU – second-most for UO this year - and also landed two vs. No. 1 UCLA, Seattle and Utah.

- Junior defensive specialist Kellie Kawasaki has started 17 matches for the Ducks this year and is again one of its top servers with her 0.13 aces per set average. Her career and team season high in aces (4) came in the early November upset of then-No. 1 UCLA. She also landed two aces in three other matches in early September sweeps of Seattle and Portland State, and in an October three-setter vs. then-No. 3 California, and led the team each night. She has nine +10-dig figures this year, and others came in a five-setter vs. Utah (16), in four sets at then-No. 1 Penn State (10) vs. then-No. 7 Stanford (10) and at No. 6 UCLA (12), and in four sets at SU (11), and sweeps vs. Portland State (11), then-No. 7 Washington (10) and Liberty (10) and in five sets vs. No.1 UCLA (10).

- Filling a key void in the lineup last year, junior transfer and middle blocker Milica Krstojevic has logged +2 blocks in 14 of the team’s last 23 matches. She posted a career high six in five- and four-setters vs. WSU and then-No. 7 Stanford, and five in a sweep of Arizona. She has also posted four in four matches and three in three matches. On offense, she had then-season highs in kills (8) and hitting (.583) at Delaware and added two blocks. In late October, she posted a career high in kills vs. Utah (9) and hit .412, then added a .714 hitting mark vs. Colorado two days later. Altogether this year, she has topped .400 in 12 matches with other efforts vs. American (.750, 3K-0E-4A), vs. Colorado (.714, 5K-0E-7A), ASU (.625, 5K-0E-8A), at Delaware (.583, 8K-1E-12A), vs. No. 1 UCLA (.571, 4K-0E-7A), vs. Arizona (.500, 3K-0E-6A), then-No. 7 Washington (.500, 1K-0E-2A), WSU (.444, 4K-0E-9A), at then-No. 1 Penn State (.400, 3K-1E-5A) and No. 6 UCLA (.400, 3K-1E-5A). Among the team’s 28 matches, she has led the team in blocks in 10 contests, hitting three times, and aces once.

- Freshman setter Shellsy Ashen has logged the team’s frosh season high in aces (2) in five matches at No. 3 USC, and against ASU (twice), Cal Poly and Liberty. Three of those totals led the team in contests against USC, Liberty and Cal Poly. She ranks fifth on the team in service aces per set (0.18) and ranked top 10 in the Pac-12 for more than a month this season.

- Freshman defensive specialist Natalie Bookout Gonzalez has played in 21 of the team’s 28 matches, and recorded digs in 10 contests. She logged her season high (5) in a five-set match vs. then-No. 12 Minnesota, and added multiple digs in wins against Arizona (3), Colorado (2), Liberty (2) and Portland State (2).

- Freshman outside hitter Chloe Buckendahl has been one of the team’s top additions at the service line. The Vista, Calif., native logged aces in two of her first three appearances of the year against No. 1 Penn State and Delaware. She added two digs in the sweep at Delaware, and logged her first collegiate kill the next week in a sweep of Seattle.

- Junior outside hitter Lauren Gross connected on a career-high 12 kills, 12.5 points and .345 hitting mark vs. Arizona State the first weekend of the Pac-12. The day before, the team’s lone left-hander also logged a career high in blocks (3) vs. Arizona. Three weeks before, she set then-career bests in kills (6) and points (6) in her two sets of play in the sweep of Liberty.

- Freshman middle blocker Savannah Paffen has made the team’s biggest contributions among freshmen on defense. Against No. 1 UCLA in early November, she helped the team to the upset with her career highs in kills (7), hitting (.429), blocks (5) and points (10.5). The following week, she tied her blocks best and paced the team at then-No. 5 Stanford (5), then hit .400 and had six kills the next night at then-No. 3 California. She also logged four blocks in three- and four-sets vs. No. 7 Washington and at No. 3 USC. Against the Trojans, her seven kills and nine points doubled her previous career highs, and she posted a .267 hitting mark and four blocks. Her four kills vs. the Huskies was her fourth-highest tally and she hit .500. On the year, she has led the team in blocks four matches with the others vs. UCLA (5) and at Colorado (3).

- Sophomore outside hitter Jaklyn Wheeler has played 13 matches for the Ducks this year, and has boosted the team’s back-row defense in the second half of the season. In the team’s upset of then-No. 1 UCLA, she posted career highs in kills (5) and points (5). She recorded two kills in sweeps vs. Portland State and at Colorado and in a five-set win over WSU. She logged an ace vs. PSU, a block against WSU and Colorado, and a season-high two digs vs. No. 4 California.


OREGON STATE (15-15, 7-13) SCOUTING REPORT
The Beavers staked their biggest upset in school history last weekend with their  3-2 victory at then-No. 3 California (25-22, 23-25, 25-21, 14-25, 17-15). Earlier in the season, OSU also beat a top-25 team in then-No. 22 Long Beach State, 3-2, on the road. … Beavers ranked top 10 in the league this week statistically included junior outside hitter Camille Saxton (aces, third, 0.33 p/s; kills, ninth, 3.59 p/s; points, ninth, 4.20 p/s;) and sophomore libero Becky Defoe (digs, fifth, 4.64 p/s). The latter player broke the school season digs record last weekend (529). … Senior outside hitter Dre Shaw ranks sixth in the Pac-12 this season in double-doubles (11) after she logged 10 kills and 11 assists at No. 3 Cal last weekend. Others with multiple double-double counts this season include junior setter Megan McBride (9), Saxton (7) and Tayla Woods (4). … The team’s top newcomer, freshman middle blocker Arica Nassar, claimed Pac-12 Freshman of the Week honors twice this fall, and her .750 hitting mark vs. Seattle (15K-0E-20A) is second best in school history. … The young Beaver squad has only one senior on its squad, yet still welcomed back five returning starters. OSU, however, did graduate its top player from last year in Jill Sawatzky. The All-Pac-10 Honorable Mention outside hitter ranked ninth all-time in school history in kills in a season in 2010 (462, 3.79 p/s), and also led the team in points (538.5, 4.41 p/s). … Seventh-year head coach Taras Liskeyvich is one of the nation’s most established collegiate coaches. Early in his career, he led Pacific to fifth-place or better finishes all nine of his seasons, including a national runner-up effort in 1980. Afterwards, the American national team head coach guided the U.S to a bronze medal in the 1992 Olympics and seventh-place finishes in the 1988 and ’96 Olympics.

IN THE POLLS
This week, No. 13 Oregon staked its highest ranking of the season and its best since it stood 13th in early October 2010. UO was one of six Pac-12 teams spotted in the top 13 nationally in this week’s 13th edition of the season, and in previous weeks had been ranked No. 16 five times, No. 15 four editions, No. 18 once and No. 20 twice.

This week the Pac-12 featured four teams ranked top 10 for the 14th straight edition – No. 1 USC (24-4), No. 4 UCLA (24-5), No. 6 Stanford (21-6) and No. 10 California (25-6). No. 11 Washington followed just behind, and Arizona received votes for the 14th straight edition.

Compared to last week, USC repeated at No. 1 – its first appearances atop the poll since 2004; Oregon improved two spots; and four teams dropped – positions Stanford (-1), Washington (-1), UCLA (-2) and California (-7).

Among other teams in the top five, the former No. 4 team – now No. 2 Nebraska – improved two spots after it won 3-1 vs. Minnesota and Wisconsin at home last weekend. No. 3 Hawai’i climbed three spots after it swept Louisiana Tech and New Mexico State at home. No. 5 Texas made its first appearance in the top five this season after it won 3-0 at home vs. Baylor and 3-1 at Missouri.

Under seventh-year head coach Jim Moore, the Ducks have been ranked top 25 in 74 polls, thanks to 59 straight editions from 2007-10 - more than double its previous best (28, 1986-88) - and two weeks late in 2006.

A complete listing of the Ducks' string of top-25 rankings under Moore follows: *2011: 8/29 – 16th; 9/5 – 16th; 9/12 – 16th; 9/19 – 15th; 9/26 – 15th; 10/3 – 15th; 10/10 – 16th; 10/17 – 18th; 10/24 – 16th; 10/31 – 20th; 11/7 – 20th; 11/14 - 15th; 11/21 – 13th *2010: Preseason – 20th, 8/30 – 18th; 9/6 – 19th; 9/13 – 16th; 9/20 – 15th; 9/27 – 11th; 10/4 – 13th; 10/11 – 17th; 10/18 – 16th; 10/25 – 18th; 11/1 – 20th; 11/15 – 23rd; 11/22 – 24th.  *2009: Preseason - 14th, 8/31 - 14th, 9/7 - 12th, 9/14 - 14th; 9/21 - 7th; 9/28 – 7th; 10/5 – 11th; 10/12 - 15th; 10/19 – 12th; 10/26 – 15th; 11/2 – 14th; 11/9 – 16th; 11/16 – 18th; 11/23 – 18th; 11/30 – 17th; 12/22 – 18th.  *2008: Preseason - 11th; 9/2 - 13th; 9/9 - 12th; 9/17 - 12th; 9/24 - 11th; 9/30 - 11th; 10/6 - 7th; 10/13 - 6th; 10/20 - 7th; 10/27 - 7th; 11/3 - 8th; 11/10 - 8th; 11/17 - 8th; 11/24 - 8th; 12/1 - 7th; 12/23 - 9th. *2007: 9/18 24th; 9/25 21st; 10/1 – 19th; 10/8 – 19th; 10/15 – 19th; 10/22 – 19th; 10/29 - 19th; 11/5 – 20th; 11/12 - 14th; 11/19 - 13th; 11/26 - 13th; 12/3 - ninth; 12/10 - ninth.

MOORE COACHING NOTES
Oregon’s 3-1 season-opening victory at then-No. 1 Penn State moved head coach Jim Moore to third all-time for UO in career wins past Gerry Gregory (fourth, 115-143, 1986-94)), and his current UO mark (135-79, 2005-) trails only Karla Rice (196-67, 1967-77) and Chris Voelz (186-168, 1978-85).

That aforementioned win over the Nittany Lions and November’s 0-2 comeback victory over then-No. 1 UCLA marked UO’s first and second wins in 20 all-time tilts against top-ranked teams. Oregon’s August victory in State College, Pa., also ended the longest-ever home win streak in the sport for the four-time defending national champions (94 matches). Before Moore’s arrival, Oregon’s previous highest-ranked victim were three No. 7 teams three decades before – Stanford (1986), Hawai’i (‘84) and Texas (‘82).

Earlier this year, UO logged 10 wins or more in its first 14 matches under Moore for the seventh straight year and its victory totals in that span follow: 2011 (12), ‘10 (14), ’09 (12), ’08 (11), ’07 (12), ’06 (11) and ’05 (10). In contrast, Oregon had pulled the feat only three times before since the start of the NCAA volleyball era in 1981 under head coach Gerry Gregory in 1991 (10), ’90 (10) and ’89 (11).

Those early-season runs have helped him rack up a 73-4 non-conference record since his arrival, and that .948 non-conference winning percentage in those matches is easily the best of any UO volleyball coach.

With its 10 straight wins earlier this year, Oregon has won nine or more straight matches each of the last six years under Moore and their longest streaks each year follow - 2010 (14), '09 (10), '08 (9), '07 (10) and '06 (10).

UO’s prowess at home, especially in the non-conference slate, is well documented. The Ducks are 33-0 at home in non-conference action under Moore, thanks to its perfect marks in 2005 (5-0), ‘06 (4-0), ‘07 (6-0), ‘08 (6-0), ‘09 (5-0), ‘10 (4-0) and ’11 (3-0).

Including conference play the last seven seasons, UO has staked an impressive 67-31 home record, and its overall year-by-year home marks under Moore (and conference) follow: 2011 9-4 (6-4); 2010 8-5 (4-5); 2009: 11-3 (6-3); 2008 13-2 (7-2); 2007 11-4 (5-4); 2006 8-5 (4-5); and 2005 7-8 (1-8).

With its 20th win of the season in November at No. 3 California, UO has claimed +17 wins for six straight years for the first time in the modern volleyball era in 1981. All six have come under Moore (20-’11; 20-’09; 25-’08; 22-’07; 17-’06), and no other Oregon mentor has ever won +20 matches three straight seasons or +19 wins in five straight years in that same span.

The dean of current Oregon head coaches, Moore guided UO to its first ever pair of NCAA Regional round of 16 trips in school history in 2007 and ’08, and sports a 5-4 record in his five Duck NCAA trips (compared with a 1-5 mark in its five prior NCAA appearances).

One of only two Duck mentors to beat every conference foe, he led the team to three straight of .500 or better conference marks (9-9 ’09; 11-7 ’08; 9-9 ’07) for the first time since 1986-88, and four straight top-six finishes for the first time in school history (fourth in ’08, fifth (tie) in ’07 and sixth (tie) in ’06).

In the national rankings, UO has ranked top 25 in 74 polls in his tenure, thanks to a 59 straight editions from 2007-10 - more than double its previous best (28, 1986-88) - and two weeks late in 2006. That stretch included an all-time high of No. 6 in ’08 among its seven weeks in the top 10.

Oregon has beaten 17, top-10 ranked teams under Moore (compared with six in the 23 previous years in the modern volleyball era (1982-2004)). Considering matches vs. top-five teams since '82, UO has staked all seven of its victories since 2006, and 23 of its 41 all-time wins vs. top-25 teams (with 17 of those Moore-directed latter wins considered upsets based on that week’s national rankings).

PLUM & BERGSMA GO NATIONAL
For the fifth straight season, Oregon picked up AVCA National Player of the Week honors after sophomore setter Lauren Plum directed UO to a mid-October sweep of then-No. 7 Washington and 3-2 comeback win over Washington State.

The sweep of the Huskies was UO’s first since 1995 and its second of four wins the last 32 matches in the series.  The night before, she helped UO win its 12th straight match in the series vs. the Cougars (and the last four with her at setter).

Against No. 7 Washington, her 52 assists in three sets was a Pac-12 season high, and only two off her then- season high in four sets vs. WSU (54).

The Huskies came into the match leading the nation in blocks, and also ranked second in the league in opponent hitting percentage (.127). UO and Plum answered the challenge by staking the highest hitting mark by a UW foe this year (.283) – a full .040 higher than its previous opponent season best (UCLA, .243).

Her ability to evenly distribute the ball proved the difference and gave the balanced Duck offense four hitters with +10 kills for the fifth time this year, but first in three sets.

She also added 12 digs for her second double-double of the weekend and 15th career-wise. Her eighth double-doubles overall this year is tops among underclassmen and fourth-most in the league.

She entered the Fox/Root Sports-TV match vs. WSU midway through the first set, and still ended with 45 assists, and logged half of the team’s four aces. She also posted a double-double with her 10 digs, and ranked second on the squad with her blocks season high (4) that doubled her previous 2011 best.

Thanks to her weekend 12.12 assists/per set average, she improved to fifth nationally and first in the Pac-12 (11.80 per set), and a comparison of her other weekend vs. previous season averages follows: digs (2.75/2.44), aces (0.25/0.21), blocks (0.50/0.27) and points (1.06/0.81).

Last year, redshirt junior outside hitter Alaina Bergsma picked up similar AVCA national honors after UO swept then-returning NCAA qualifier Washington State and ended the then-No. 7 Washington’s 36-set season win streak in 3-1 decision in Eugene.

Against UW, she connected on match highs in kills (21), points (23) and hitting (.559); her kill tally was a team season high; and her hitting mark (.559) was third-best for UO in ‘10 and tops among efforts of 15 kills or more. The night before vs. the Cougars, she again led the team in kills (12) – her first honor of the season – and hit .417.

In 2009, All-American Sonja Newcombe picked up similar honors after the team’s wins against then-No. 5 Stanford and then-No. 14 California in Eugene, and in ’08 after home victories vs. then-No. 4 USC and then-No. 5 UCLA. In ’07, All-American Gorana Maricic was likewise tabbed after wins vs. then-No. 6 USC and then-No. 9 UCLA in Eugene.


2010 SEASON REVIEW
Sporting only one upperclassmen on its roster at the 2010 season’s end, the Ducks (19-11, 7-11) overachieved in many ways and nearly garnered their fifth straight postseason appearance under head coach Jim Moore.

Oregon started the season with a school record 14-match win streak en route to a season high ranking of 11th nationally, then opened the conference season with its first home sweep of the Washington schools since 1989.

The team added six more conference wins in the ensuing months to position themselves for a fifth straight postseason bid, but unfortunately was not invited when different at-large considerations were used than traditionally in the past. The tourney snub also ended UO’s record ranking run at 59 weeks after UO had been ranked between 11th and 24th all season long.

Since the debut of the 64-team tourney format in 1998, UO became the first Pac-10 program not to receive an NCAA bid that posted at least 17 wins, while only twice before had teams with 16 wins not qualified (Arizona, 16-14, 2008; Oregon State, 16-16, 2003).

The Ducks combined for a host of individual awards, led by senior outside hitter Heather Meyers. The All-Pac-10 First Team choice ended her career ranked second in league history in service aces and top-10 for Oregon in nearly every career all-time category.

Then-freshman Lauren Plum was tabbed to the All-Pac-10 Freshman Team, while sophomore outside hitter Alaina Bergsma claimed her first All-Pac-10 honorable mention nod.

Meyers’ honor was the seventh in head coach Jim Moore’s tenure and raised Oregon’s overall tally to 14. Plum was Moore’s fifth All-Pac-10 Freshman Team honoree and 11th in school history since the origin of the Pacific-10 Conference in 1986.

Earlier during the year, Bergsma became the fourth Duck in a many years to claim AVCA National Player of the Week honors after her efforts in early September home wins vs. UW (a team season high in kills (21) and .559 hitting mark) and WSU (12 kills, .417).

Sophomore outside hitter Katherine Fischer was the only underclassmen to receive ESPN Academic All-America honors with her third-team nod based on her stats and 4.0 cumulative GPA.


2010 PAC-12 POSTSEASON RUNDOWN
Conference co-champion and #7 NCAA tourney seed California ended the 2010 campaign as the national runner-up after a 3-0 loss to top-seeded Penn State. The Bears advanced to their first final after it swept both #6 seed USC in the semifinals and Washington in the regional finals.

The Trojans also beat a league rival, #3 seed and conference co-champion Stanford in a dramatic 3-2 match, after wins over Indiana (3-0), San Diego (3-1) and New Mexico (3-0).

Two other conference teams made the field as UCLA lost in the second round to #9 seed Texas, 3-1, and beat American, 3-2 in the opener, while Arizona lost its opener, 3-1, to Northwestern.
 
The Pac-12’s status as the nation’s premier volleyball league goes back to the first NCAA Championship in 1981 when USC beat UCLA for the national title – one of five times that the Pac-12 has swept the top two places nationally.

Altogether, four league teams have combined for 13 of the 29 national championships held in that stretch - Stanford (6 - 1992, '94, '96, '97, 2001, '04), UCLA (3 - 1984, '90, '91), USC (3 - 1981, '2002, '03) and Washington (1 - 2005), and the Pac-10 has also claimed 13 runner-up nods.

The Pac-12 has advanced at least one team every year to the national semifinals except twice, including 12 tourneys with two teams and thee years with three of the four teams.

More information on the NCAA tourney is available at the www.NCAAsports.com website.


BRAINS & BRAWN
In early November, outside hitter Katherine Fischer repeated as an Academic All-District First-Team choice, less than a year after she was tabbed a Third-Team Academic All-American.

The accounting major from Los Altos, Calif., entered the fall with a 4.02 cumulative GPA – the highest among the two teams – and is the fourth Duck all-time to receive national Academic All-America honors with Kristen Bitter (Third Team - 2006), Casey Crisler (Third Team - 1997) and four-time recipient Sue Harbor (First Team - 1984, '85); Second Team – 1982, ‘83).

To be eligible for the award, student-athletes must be a starter or important reserve with at least a 3.30 cumulative grade point average (on a 4.0 scale); be a sophomore or older; and played at least one full calendar year at her current institution.

Last fall, defensive specialist Kellie Kawasaki also was tabbed to the Academic All-District Third Team, and is one of six honorees in Jim Moore’s tenure. Former setter Nevena Djordjevic picked up similar second- and third-team honors in 2008 and ’09, and Bitter was a first-team choice in ’06.

Prior to Moore’s arrival, only one other Duck had picked up academic all-district honors – former setter Casey Crisler in 1995, ’96 and ’97.

Last fall, Fischer and Kawasaki were among six Ducks that landed on Pacific-10 Conference All-Academic Teams two weeks before. Fischer and outside hitter Lauren Gross were first- and second-team honorees, respectively, and four others were honorable mentions - middle blocker Rhiannon Tooker, libero Haley Jacob, Kawasaki and outside hitter Jocelyn Levig.

Overall, UO has racked up 25 Pac-10 league all-academic honors in six years under head coach Jim Moore after it received at least three honors in 2008 (4), ‘07 (4), '06 (4) and '05 (5), and two in ‘09.


HOME COURT MAGIC
In early October, the Ducks welcomed a record home volleyball crowd of 6,210 to a Matthew Knight Arena match vs. returning league co-champion and No. 4 California.

In November 2008, UO set its previous attendance record vs. then-No. 5 Washington (3,817) and reset the former mark (3,716) from its win vs. Oregon State in 1996. The Ducks had another +3,000 total two nights before vs. Washington State (3,169), now its fourth-largest attendance ever.

Overall in his seventh season at the helm, head coach Jim Moore and the Ducks have now played in front of 13 of the 19 largest home volleyball crowds at Matthew Knight Arena and Ma Arthur Court.

Oregon’s burgeoning fan support has helped the program to a 33-0 non-conference home record under Moore, thanks to perfect marks in 2005 (5-0), ’06 (4-0), ‘07 (6-0), ‘08 (6-0), ’09 (5-0,)’10 (4-0) and ‘11 (3-0). A complete list of the top-19 ranked crowds during the Moore era follows:
 
- 6,210 (#1, vs. California, 10/7/11)
- 3,817 (#2, vs. Washington, 11/16/08)
- 3,564 (#4, vs. Washington 9/25/09)
- 3,169 (#5, vs. Washington State, 11/14/08)
- 2,777 (#6, vs. OSU, 11/16/07)
- 3,672 (#7, vs. Washington, 11/3/06)
- 2,518 (#9, vs. OSU, 10/27/09)
- 2,375 (#11, vs. Washington, 9/21/07)
- 2,346 (#12, vs. Oregon State, 10/15/10)
- 2,260 (#13, vs. Oregon State, 9/29/06)
- 2,159 (#14, vs. Oregon State, 10/12/08)
- 1,935 (#17 vs. USC, 11/20/10)
- 1,842 (#19, vs. California, 11/16/06)
 

Season-wise, UO's overall average in 2010 (1,295) and 2009 (1,433) both ranked 27th among the 369 Division 1 teams, while its nine-match conference average in 2008 (2,393) was almost a 1,000 better than its 2007 average (1,412).


JIM MOORE - HEAD COACH PROFILE
Oregon's mercurial rise into the national elite has been charted by Jim Moore, the 2007 Collegiate Volleyball Update Coach of the Year and 2006 Pac-10 Conference Coach of the Year.

In 2010, he guided arguably his youngest team ever to a season-high 11th place national ranking and a 19-11 record. Oregon ran its AVCA ranking streak to 59 straight weeks, thanks to a school-record 14-match win streak to open the season en route to its fifth straight season with +17 wins (20-’09; 25-’08; 22-’07; 17-’06) for the first time since 1983-87.

The youthful Duck squad sported only one upperclassmen on its roster at season’s end, senior Heather Meyers who graduated ranked second all-time in the Pac-10 in career service aces (173). The All-Pac-10 First Team outside hitter also led the Pac-10 (0.56 p/s) and ranked sixth in the league in points (4.57 p/s) with the fourth- and sixth-best marks all-time for UO, and graduated top-10 ranked in nearly every school career category. All-Pac-10 Freshman team setter Lauren Plum ranked 12th nationally in assists (11.75) – tops among freshmen - and was later picked to the A2 National Team with All-Pac-10 honorable mention and outside hitter Alaina Bergsma. Sophomore outside hitter Katherine Fischer logged the highest double-double totals (14) among non-seniors, and topped the league in most aces in a match (6) with Meyers who recorded the feat three times.

Team-wise last year, UO also ranked top 30 nationally in aces (24th, 1.61 p/s), assists (25th, 13.23 p/s), kills (29th, 14.12) and hitting (30th, .256).

In 2009, UO again spent the entire season ranked top 20 and climbed as high seventh nationally – its second highest polling ever. At season’s end, UO notched its third straight 20-win season (20-10) for the first time since 1978-80, a 14th-place NCAA tourney seeding and 17th-place final national ranking.

Oregon’s 9-9 Pac-10 mark was its third straight of .500 or better (9-9 ’09; 11-7 ’08; 9-9 ’07) for the first time since 1986-88, and its sixth-place finish marked its fourth straight top-six finish (fourth in ’08, fifth (tie) in ’07 and sixth (tie) in ’06).

UO claimed five wins over top-20 teams, including a pair of 0-2 comebacks vs. then-No. 7 UCLA, and at then-No. 4 Washington, and 3-2 wins over No. 5 Stanford and No. 9 Minnesota (3-2) and its first blanking of No. 14 California since ‘90. Oregon’s first victories over the Cardinal and Huskies since 1989 and 2000, respectively, also meant that Moore is the second mentor ever to lead UO to wins over all nine Pac-10 rivals in his career.

The Ducks were rewarded with a No. 14 NCAA Tournament seed – its third straight top-16 seed after it posted four wins against top-10 teams, including a pair of 0-2 November comebacks that resulted in 3-2 upsets of then-No. 7 UCLA and at then-No. 4 Washington.

In October, Oregon’s 3-2 win over then-No. 5 Stanford and 3-0 blanking of then-No. 14 Cal marked its first weekend sweep of the Bay Area rivals since ‘89, and the Stanford and Washington victories positioned Moore as the second Duck mentor to defeat every Pac-10 opponent.

Early in the season, UO climbed as high as No. 7 in the AVCA national poll its 42nd straight top-20 ranking (and among 14, top-10 appearances). That second-highest-ever ranking – just shy of its sixth-place ranking in ‘08 – came after a victory vs. then-No. 9 Minnesota that extended its third, school record start (10-0) the last four years. McArthur Court roared in approval countless times as UO went 11-2 at home, while its third-biggest-ever attendance of 3,564 in the Pac-10 opener marked another of the 10 crowds in Moore’s short tenure that rank among the 16 biggest in school history.

Fueling Oregon’s success again in ‘09 was the record-setting senior trio from his first Duck recruiting class – the All-America pair of outside hitter Sonja Newcombe (1,852 points) and middle blocker Neticia Enesi (389 block assists) and setter Nevena Djordjevic (4,400). Enesi and Newcombe were repeat All-Pac-10 picks and the latter player picked up her second AVCA National Player of the Week and third and fourth Pac-10 Player of the Week nods. Djordjevic, a All-Pac-10 honorable mention choice, ended the regular season ranked second nationally in assists (12.38), and Newcombe stood 20th in points (4.89) and kills (4.35) as did Enesi ranked 16th in hitting (0.374).

UO enjoyed another record-breaking campaign in 2008 under the Long Beach, Calif., native when it racked up its most overall wins (25) since 1984, scored its second straight (and ever) trip to the third round of the 64-team NCAA tournament, and its best Pac-10 finish and record (fourth, 11-7) since '87. During the regular season, Oregon enjoyed a school record 15-match home winning streak and its highest ever ranking (No. 6) among a string of top-15 rankings all season long that included a season-ending ninth-place position. Other highlights included a new school record crowd (3,817) and #3-biggest mark vs. Washington State (3,169), and its first pair of upsets vs. top-five ranked rivals (No. 4 USC (3-0) and No. 5 UCLA (3-1)).

In return for the team’s success in 2008, UO celebrated its first pair of same season All-Americans (Neticia Enesi, Gorana Maricic), first All-Pac-10 and All-Region trio (Enesi, Maricic, Newcombe); its second National Player of the Week honoree (Newcombe) after Maricic claimed similar honors in 2007; and new school and individual hitting records (.289 / .389 by Neticia Enesi).

2007 proved another storybook season when Oregon sprinted out to a 10-0 start, then advanced to the 64-team NCA Tournament third round for the first time after wins over Missouri State (3-0) and 11th-seeded Kansas State (3-2). The latter of those wins was a memorable one for Moore when UO battled back from a 2-0 deficit to upset No. 11 seed Kansas State on its home floor -  a program he had also resurrected a decade prior. The Ducks flashed similar instincts a month before at home when it beat its first pair of top-10 ranked foes (No. 6 USC and No. 9 UCLA) en route to a 9-9 league record and fifth-place finish (its best since 1989), while its 22-11 record featured its most overall wins since 1986.  

On the individual front in ‘07, outside hitter Gorana Maricic was tabbed UO’s second-ever All-American and a first-team Pac-10 and All-Region pick; Heather Meyers, Sonja Newcombe and Katie Swoboda were Pac-10 honorable mention choices; and Meyers was a Pac-10 All-Freshmen Team selection.

In his 23rd year as a collegiate head coach, Moore began UO's transformation in 2005 by leading the Ducks to their then-highest win total (12) and winning percentage (.400) in 14 seasons. The next year in '06, he led the Ducks to their then-best overall (17-12) and conference (7-11) marks in nearly two decades, and Oregon was rewarded with its first postseason invitation since 1989. Sonja Newcombe was tabbed to the Pac-10 All-Freshman Team, and Neticia Enesi and Nevena Djordjevic were chosen as honorable mentions.

For comparison's sake, Oregon amassed a 24-64 record the three seasons prior to Moore's arrival, and registered just two Pac-10 wins. Since his arrival, UO has gone 95-59, won 37 Pac-10 matches and made three consecutive NCAA tournament trips for the first time in school history.

The fifth-year Duck mentor initially staked his reputation as a master program rebuilder at Northern Michigan (1989-94, 03-04), Kansas State (1994-97), Texas (1997-01) and Chico State (2001-03).

Those programs combined for a 143-228 (.385) mark before his arrival and improved to 268-118 (.694) the first season under his tutelage. That first stop included the 1993 national championship at Northern Michigan - part of a run that included two championship trips and three quarterfinal appearances.

In the Big 12 Conference, he took a Kansas State program that had gone 24-68 overall and 0-36 in Big 12 play and produced three straight winning seasons, a 26-9 mark in '96 and the team's first NCAA trip. At Texas, he guided the legendary program to the Big 12 title, three NCAA appearances, one Player of the Year honor, seven All-America selections and eight All-Big 12 honors. His Chico State squads went from a 15-75 record the three seasons before his arrival to 16-13 and 18-8 marks, and his subsequent Northern Michigan teams produced a sparkling 50-8 record.

With his 3-1 victory over Oregon State in November 2007, he picked up the 400th win of his coaching career, and now owns an overall record of 487-235 as a collegiate head coach.
