WHAT’S ON TAP
EUGENE – This weekend, the No. 4 University of Oregon volleyball team (22-3, 13-3) heads north for its final out-of-state tilts of the regular season against its Washington rivals.


Still ranked second in the nation’s top volleyball league, UO first travels to No. 6 Washington (20-5, 11-5) on Friday, Nov. 16 at 7 p.m., then plays at Washington State (12-16, 2-14) on Saturday, Nov. 17 at 7 p.m.

Oregon then wraps the regular season next week by hosting No. 5 UCLA (Tue., Nov. 20) and plays at Oregon State (Fri., Nov. 23).  Fans can tune in to watch the Bruin and Beaver 8 p.m. matches live on the Pac-12 Oregon TV Network, and the Washington tilt will be video-streamed online for free via the Pac-12.com website.

Last weekend, the Ducks posted their second straight season sweep of its desert Pac-12 rivals (and ever). UO beat ASU by a 3-2 count for its 10th straight series win, and it posted its fourth straight 3-0 victory in the series vs. UA. Afterwards, outside hitter Liz Brenner won her first Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week.

After it started the season with a 16-0 run, Washington is 4-5 since then with all five losses to top-seven ranked league rivals. UW paces the nation in blocking (3.29 per set), and is tops in the Pac-12 in aces (1.51 per set) and second in opponent hitting (.174). Senior Amanda Gil ranks second nationally in blocks (1.74 per set), while sophomore outside hitter Krista Vansant is a two-time Pac-12 Player of the Week in ’12, and was the Pac-12 Freshman of the Year last year.

WSU started the year with a 10-2 non-conference marks. In league play since, the Cougars are 2-14 with both wins two weekends ago at home vs. Colorado (3-0) and Utah (3-2). Sophomore outside hitter Jaicee Harris stands eighth in the league this week in both kills and points (3.95 / 4.43 per set), and ranks 57th and 67th nationally.

A month ago at home, the Ducks beat Washington State for the 13th straight time (and 11th sweep in that span), then topped the nation's last unbeaten team with its 3-1 win over then-No. 2 Washington.

With its 22 wins this year, Oregon has eclipsed 20 wins at record pace after it also achieved the feat four times before under eighth-year head coach Jim Moore in 2007 (22), '08 (25), '09 (20) and '11 (21). For comparison’s sake, UO achieved the feat once before ('89 – 21) in the other 19 years of Pac-12 play starting in '86.

DUCK STARTER NOTES
- Pac-12 Player of the Year candidate Alaina Bergsma offers one of the nation’s most impressive all-around resumes.  This week, the All-America outside hitter ranked seventh nationally in kills (4.68 p/s) and 10th in points (5.16 p/s) and leads the nation’s top conference in both categories. After her 86 career matches for the Ducks, she already ranks fourth all-time in career points (1,360.5), sixth in career hitting (.274) and ninth in career kills (1,233). This season she has led the team in kills and points in a team-high 16 and 15 matches each, and like-wise in aces nine times. Among her 25 matches on the season, she has 18 +.300 hitting totals (and eight +.400), including a season-high .500 mark in the three-set win at then-No. 10 Kentucky (14K-2E-24A). She has landed double-digit kill totals in the last 20 matches, including a team season high of 28 kills in the five-set win vs. Arizona State. She also has four other +20-kill totals vs. California (5 sets, 25K, .404), at then-No. 24 Ohio State (5s, 23K, .333), at Ohio (4s, 23K, .400) and vs. then-No. 2 Washington (4s, 23K, .348). Her best kill per set average this year came in the late October sweep at then-No. 2 USC (18 (6.0 p/s), .438). She won a school-record fourth and fifth career Pac-12 Player of the Week honors earlier this year. The first honor came after she was tabbed the tourney MVP in the season-opening D.C. Kohl Classic State after wins at then-No. 24 Ohio State (5 sets – 23 kills, 15 digs, .333), and vs. Toledo (2s, .467) and Houston (2s, .357, 7 kills, 5 digs). She repeated the honor again in mid-October after UO’s wins over then-No. 2 Washington (4s, 23K, .348) and Washington State (3s, .435, 11 kills, 4 blocks). Off the court, she picked up Miss Oregon USA honors last November, then claimed Most Photogenic acclaim in the national pageant in Las Vegas in May. In the classroom, the NCAA’s Senior CLASS Award top-10 finalist is a 2012 Capital One Academic All-District First-Team pick, and a 2011 Pac-12 All-Academic Second-Team honoree. She sports a 3.60 cumulative GPA, and will graduate with a business sports marketing degree after this term.

- Sophomore outside hitter Liz Brenner was an All-Pac-12 Freshman Team choice last year, and this year has 20 double-digit kill totals the last 23 matches (and nine-kill tallies the other three). Overall in 2012, she has led the team in hitting in nine matches, and points and kills seven times, and is one of the team’s key passers in serve receive. This week she was in the neighborhood of top-100 rankings in kills (64th, 3.88 per set) and points (73rd, 4.17 ps), and stood 10th in league play in kills (3.93 p/s) and points (4.34 p/s). She posted a team season highs in kills (26) and points (27.5) in five-set match vs. California. She also logged her next four-highest kill totals this year against potential NCAA qualifiers – at No. 7 Stanford (19 (5s)), at No. 2 USC (16 (3s), .577), vs. St. Mary’s (17 (3s), .538) and at Cal (16 (4s)). Among her 10 +.300 totals on the season, seven have been +.500, including a season high at USC (.577, 16 kills). Three other of those totals have come in Pac-12 play in three-set wins vs. Arizona (.516, 18K), Washington State (.500, 12K) and at Utah (.571, 9 kills). She won her first Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week honor in early November for her play in three- and five-set wins vs. Arizona (18K, .516, career high 4 aces) and ASU (17K, .297, 11 digs) – and the latter was her fourth double-double of the season.  In her first year serving for UO, she logged a career four high aces vs. Arizona. The three-sport Duck star – UO’s first female since Peg Rees (a basketball, softball, volleyball letterwinner from 1973-76) - also started at forward for the basketball team last year, and served as a back-up catcher in softball last spring. As a prep senior, the Portland, Ore., native was an Oregon state player of the year in volleyball and basketball, a state champion in the shot put and runner-up in the javelin, and an all-state catcher in softball as a sophomore.

- Senior outside hitter Katherine Fischer is one of the team’s most versatile players in every aspect. In 2012, she ranks second in the Pac-12 and 122nd nationally in aces (0.32 per set), and second on the team in digs (2.52 per set), third in kills (2.62 p/s), and fourth in hitting (.238). The team’s active career double-double leader (33) also ranks top 10 all-time for UO in points (fifth, 1,319.5), aces (eighth, 109) and attempts (eighth, 3,202). She has posted eight +.300 hitting marks, including a season high (.619) at Kentucky that ranks second-best for the team this season. She has paced UO in aces in nine matches and three times in digs and hitting, and twice in kills. The Pac-12 career aces leader among active players (108) has led the team in the category 26 times in her career, and her # of match highs for other categories follows: kills (18), digs (17), hitting (12), points (11) and blocks (9). Her five aces in the sweep of Oregon State is the team season high and is tied for sixth-best in the league this season. Off the court, the accounting major picked up her third Academic All-District First Team honor in early November, and was tabbed a First-Team Academic All-American last year and a Third-Team pick in 2010 and has sported +4.00 cumulative GPA’s each year.

- Thanks to her hard work the last three seasons, senior libero Haley Jacob was tabbed to the USA Volleyball A2 National Team last spring, and is the team’s floor leader on defense. All-time for UO, the three-year starter ranks second career-wise in digs per set (3.93) and third in digs (1,402). In 2012, she stands third in the Pac-12 in digs per set in league action (4.71 p/s) and fourth for all matches combined (4.22 p/s). Her 21 digs in the sweep of then-No. 2 USC is her best per-set average this season (7.0). Among her 20 career +20-dig matches, five others have come this year vs. No. 2 Washington (26, 4 set), at No. 7 Stanford (26, 5 sets), vs. California (25, 5s), at Cal (20, 4s) and at No. 24 Ohio State (20, 5s). This season she has paced the squad in digs a team-high 18 matches to give her 67 career honors the last four seasons.

- All-Pac-12 returnee and junior setter Lauren Plum again tops the nation this week in assists (13.04) and owns the Pac-12’s first-, fourth- and fifth-best assist totals of the season vs. California (66), at Ohio (64), and vs. Arizona State (63). In league play, her assists per set average is even higher (13.29), and she stands ninth-best in Pac-12-only play in aces (0.29 p/s). She picked up her second AVCA National Player of the Week honor in as many years in late September after she led UO to sweeps at then-No. 2 USC and at home vs. then-No. 26 Oregon. She directed the offense to .357 and .368 hitting marks vs. the Trojans and Beavers, and her 48 and 46 assists vs. OSU and USC are the team’s season highs for three-set matches. Career-wise, the returning All-Pac-12 pick leads UO all-time in assists per set (12.07 avg.), and stands third in total assists (3,684). Her season assists total (1,180) and average (13.04) rank ninth- and third-best for UO, and already ranks top 10 with her totals as a sophomore (1,330 (#6); 11.67 (#7)) and freshman (1,246 (#8); 11.75 (#5)).  Under her direction, the Ducks again rank first team-wise in the nation this week in kills (15.69 per set) and ninth in hitting (.292). Among her 24 career double-doubles, five have come this year at Arizona (3 sets – 10 digs, 40 assists), vs. UC Santa Barbara (4s - 12 digs, 46 assists), at California (3s - 15D, 54A), at No. 7 Stanford (5s - 16D, 59A) and vs. No. 2 Washington (4s - 10D, 57A). Off the court, she was a Pac-12 All-Academic Honorable Mention last year.

- Head Coach Jim Moore has given the team’s most improved award the past two years to junior middle blocker Ariana Williams for good reason. This week, the returning All-Pac-12 honorable mention choice stood 73rd nationally in hitting (.344) eighth in the Pac-12, and fifth all-time for Oregon in a season. After 25 matches this year, she has eclipsed .300 18 times, .400 12 times and .500 six times. Match-wise, she has topped Oregon a team-best 11 times in hitting and nine times in blocks. Her five blocks in the five-setter at then-No. 7 Stanford is her season best, and one shy of the team season best, and she added four in a sweep of then-No. 26 Oregon State. Her career hitting percentage (.311 (721K-261E-1,466A)) stands third-best all-time for UO behind All-American Sue Harbour (.333, 1981-85) and Kristen Forristall (.316, 2007-08).

- Freshman Canace Finley has made 19 starts at middle blocker, has led the team in blocks in seven matches, and paces the team in blocks per set average (0.75 p/s). In early September, the team’s top freshman addition logged a team-season high six blocks in the three-set win at Portland State, and also had five in sweeps of Western Carolina and Arizona State, and four-set win at California. She has logged two .500 hitting marks in sweeps vs. Western Carolina (9 kills) and WSU (7 kills). She added a pair of +.400 totals the same weekend in sweeps at Colorado (.455, 5K) and Utah (.462, 8K) and a +.300 total in a five-setter vs. Arizona State (.357, 7 kills).

Ducks stood top 10 in four other league categories – senior libero Haley Jacob (digs, fourth, 4.27 p/s), junior Ariana Williams (hitting, eighth, .344), Bergsma (hiting, 10th, .338) and sophomore outside hitter Liz Brenner (kills, 10th, 3.93 p/s; points, 10th, 4.34 p/s). Plum and Fischer were tied for 15th in double-doubles (5), Brenner followed in 20th (4) and Bergsma tied for 26th (3).

Plum has logged the Pac-12’s first-, fourth- and fifth-best assist totals of the season vs. California (66), at Ohio (64), and vs. Arizona State (63).

REWRITING THE DUCK RECORD BOOKS
Last week, senior outside hitter Katherine Fischer improved one position on the Duck career chart for points (fifth, 1,3196.5) and passed former All-American Neticia Enesi (sixth, 1,315.5, 2006-09).

Fischer also improved a spot on the career service aces list (eighth, 109) and attack attempts chart (seventh, 3,202) and passed Melissa Tezian (ninth, 106, 1986-89) and Madeline Ernst, eighth, 3,167, 1995-98), respectively.

On the Duck all-time season list, junior setter Lauren Plum now ranks top 10 for the third time (ninth, 1,180) and is just shy of her top-eight marks as a freshman (eighth, 1,246, 2010) and sophomore (sixth, 1,330, 2011).

DUCK – COUGAR / HUSKY SERIES HISTORY
All-time UO owns a 44-32-1 ledger vs. WSU and 22-57 mark vs. Washington and (and 14-1 and 4-11 marks under eighth-year head coach Jim Moore).

Oregon has won one match each of the last four years in the Husky series – and its four wins in that span give Moore a 4-3 mark since ’09. Prior to that UW had won a series-best 17 straight matches from 2001-09, while a Duck win in 2000 ended another nine-match Husky streak from 1996-99.

Oregon has won 14 straight matches vs. WSU while the Cougars’ last win was their first meeting in Moore’s first year in 2005. Among those 14 wins under Moore, 11 have been in 3-0 fashion, and three were in four sets and one was in five sets

Prior to his arrival, WSU ran off a series-best 25- match win streak between 1991-2003 before UO’s win in 2004, while Oregon staked a 20-match in streak from 1979-1987.


RECENT DUCK HEROES VS. THE HUSKIES & COUGARS
In Oregon's home wins vs. then-No. 2 Washington (3-1) and Washington State (3-0) in October:

Junior setter Lauren Plum landed her second AVCA National Player of the Week honor. The All-Pac-12 setter directed the team to a .340 hitting mark for the weekend (.050 better than its prior season average (.290) that ranked 12th nationally the week before). The All-Pac-12 returnee averaged 14.14 assists per set - 1.32 higher than her national-best average the previous week (12.82).

All-America outside hitter Alaina Bergsma led UO in kills against the Huskies (23) – the team’s best in a non-five-set match - and her .348 mark was her 14th +.300 total on the year. Against WSU, the redshirt senior landed 11 kills, hit .435 (one of eight +.400 marks), and topped the team in blocks (4).

Against UW, the team featured four hitters with +10 kills (one of three this year), thanks to efforts by sophomore Liz Brenner (14K), junior middle blocker Ariana Williams (12K, .444) and senior outside hitter Katherine Fischer (12K, .270).

In the back row vs. UW, senior libero Haley Jacob and defensive specialist Kellie Kawasaki logged their season highs in digs (26) and aces (2), respectively.

Other noteworthy efforts vs. the Cougars came from Brenner (.500, 12K), freshman middle blocker Canace Finley (season-high .500, 7K) and Fischer (8K, 2 aces).

IN THE POLLS
This week, No. 4 Oregon sports its eighth top-five ranking in school history (and in as many weeks) in the 12th AVCA national poll of the season.

UO was one of five Pac-12 schools spotted in the top eight overall Monday with No. 1 Stanford, No. 5 UCLA, No. 6 Washington and No. 8 USC.

Among those five teams this week, Stanford, Oregon and USC all held steady; UCLA improved one position; and Washington dropped one spot.

One other Duck foes stood top 25 – No. 15 Ohio State – and California, Kentucky, Oregon State and St. Mary’s have picked up votes in current or previous editions.

For comparison’s sake, last week’s Pac-12 rankings follow: No. 1 Stanford, No. 5 Washington, No. 6 UCLA and No. 8 USC.

Overall during head coach Jim Moore’s eight-year tenure, Oregon has now been ranked top 25 for 87 editions (2012-13; 2011-14; ’10-13; ’09-16; ’08-16; ’07-13; ’06-2), including 51 in the top 15, and all 24 of the team’s ever top-10 honors. UO has also scored five, top-three rankings in September and October with its No. 2 rankings in the fifth, sixth and 10th editions of the year, and third-place pollings in the eighth and ninth editions

Among other poll news:
- No. 1 Stanford repeated as the top team in the nation for the third straight week after it won 3-0 at WSU and 3-1 at Washington.
- No. 2 Penn State won 3-0 at home vs. Illinois and Northwestern.
- No. 3 Texas won 3-2 at then-No. 23 Kansas and 3-0 at then-No. 17 Kansas State.
- No. 5 UCLA won 3-0 at Colorado and 3-2 at Utah.
- No. 6 Washington won 3-2 at home over California and lost 3-1 to Stanford in Seattle.
- No. 8 USC won 3-1 at Utah and 3-0 at Colorado.

The complete poll follows at the bottom of this article, and is also available at the AVCA website at the http://www.avca.org/divisions/division-one-women/polls/ URL address.

In this week’s other national polls, UO again stood #6 in the Pablo Rankings, fourth in the Volleyball Magazine Poll, and, #5 in the ESPN Power Rankings. Last week, UO stood #5 in the Pablo Rankings, #6 in the ESPN Power Rankings and #5 in the Volleyball Magazine Poll.

UO was tabbed ninth in the seventh NCAA RPI ratings released this week. To view the weekly NCAA RPI updates, visit the http://www.ncaa.com/rankings/volleyball-women/d1/ncaa_womens_volleyball_rpi URL address.

Earlier this season, Oregon’s No. 20 preseason pick in the AVCA Coaches Poll was its fourth top-20 preseason pick the last five years – an accomplishment the program had notched only twice before current head coach Jim Moore’s arrival (1985 - 15th / 1990 - 20th).

The eighth-year mentor and his squad also picked up a No. 11 preseason nod in 2008, and No. 14 and No. 20 selections in 2009 and ’10, respectively.

The only missing year in that span – 2011 – saw Oregon upset then-four-time defending national champion Penn State two weeks later, and end its NCAA-record 94-match home win streak.

Among other related poll notes, UO was picked a best-ever fourth in the Pac-12 Coaches Preseason Poll behind UCLA (first), Stanford (second) and USC (third), and ahead of Washington (fifth), California (sixth) and Arizona (seventh).

A complete listing of the Ducks' string of top-25 rankings under Moore follows: *2012 (8 weeks): Preseason – 20th; 8/27 – 17th; 9/4 -13th; 9/10 – 9th; 9/17 – 8th; 9/23 – 2nd; 10/2 – 2nd; 10/9 – 5th; 10/16 – 3rd; 10/23 – 3rd; 10/30 – 2nd; 11/5 – 4th; 2011 (14): 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; 12/20 – 24th. *2010 (13): 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 (16): 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 (16): 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 (13): 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. *2006 (2): 10/30 24th; 11/6 24th.

PLUM & BERGSMA GO NATIONAL
Thanks to the team’s best start in school history, the Ducks have continued to pile up Pac-12 and AVCA National Player of the week honors this season.

In mid-October, redshirt senior outside hitter Alaina Bergsma won her second Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week honor of the season to give her a school-record five in her career.

Helping the Ducks to a home upset of the nation’s last unbeaten team the prior weekend, the returning All-American led the squad vs. then-No. 2 UW in kills (23) and tied her team season high. The Huskies ranked second nationally in blocks entering the week, but that didn’t stop Bergsma from becoming the first UW foe to top .300 with +15 kills this year (.348, 23), and notch her 14th +.300 total on the year.

The night before, her 11 kills was one shy of the team high vs. the Cougars; her .435 hitting mark was her seventh +.400 mark of the season; and she topped the team in blocks (4) for the sixth time in 2012.

She led the team in points in both matches, and her weekend kills average (4.86) also topped her season average (4.60) that ranked eighth nationally the previous week for one of the nation’s most balanced offenses. 

Earlier this year in August, Bergsma picked up similar honors after she won D.C. Kohl Sports Impact Classic MVP honors. The returning All-American helped then-No. 20 Oregon opened the season with sweeps of Toledo and Houston, then rallied from an 0-2 deficit at then-No. 24 Ohio State to a 3-2 win.

In prior seasons, she won a pair of honors last year and once in 2010.

In late-September, the Ducks picked up AVCA National Player of the Week honors for the sixth straight season after junior setter Lauren Plum led the team to a history-making, opening week of Pac-12 play.

The returning All-Pac-12 player directed the Duck offense to .357 and .368 hitting marks vs. the then-No. 2 Trojans and Beavers. Both marks were the teams’ then-opponent season highs (and easily bettered the next-best respective marks of .297 and .305 by returning national champion and then-No. 1 UCLA last week).

Her 48 and 46 assists vs. OSU and USC were the team’s season high for three-set matches, and third- and fourth-best overall behind other four- and five-set match totals (64, 61).

The Duck offense again smacked of balance as four hitters posted +10 kills and +.290 marks vs. the Beavers, and three hitters with +8 kills topped .375 vs. the Trojans.

Her weekend 15.67 assists per set average easily topped her season average (13.09) that led the nation that week.

Last year, Plum earned her first national weekly honor after she directed UO to a mid-October sweep of then-No. 7 Washington and 3-2 comeback win over Washington State.

In 2009, All-American Sonja Newcombe picked up similar national and league 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.


GET YOUR TICKETS
Fans this year have another money-saving option to catch many of the nation’s top volleyball teams at Matthew Knight Arena. The two new mini-plans each feature three of the team’s top Pac-12 tilts, and are available for purchase online or in-person at the Duck ticket office.

Each three-match Reserved and G.A. ticket plan costs only $18 and $15, respectively, and gives fans a chance to get their tickets early and bypass ticket lines at the door.

‘The Pancake’ Mini-Plan offers tickets for three more of the team’s top league showdowns  in September, October and early November - Oregon State (9/19), Washington (10/13) and California (11/2). The Civil War match vs. the Beavers is always one of the team’s most exciting matches, and the Huskies the Bears were tabbed No. 14 and No. 17 in the preseason national poll.

 ‘The Roof’ Mini-Plan includes tickets for three key tilts vs. returning NCAA tournament qualifiers – UCLA (11/20), Stanford (11/14) and Arizona (11/1). The returning national champion Bruins and Cardinal ranked No. 1 and No. 6 in the preseason poll, and Arizona has made 15 NCAA trips the last 20 years.

A link to order mini-plan tickets and information is available at the www.GoDucks.com ticket link or at this URL address

http://ev10.evenue.net/cgi-bin/ncommerce3/SEGetEventList?groupCode=VB&linkID=uoregon&shopperContext=&caller=&appCode=

With the addition of new ticket/ID scanning equipment at the arena, current UO students must present a valid ID to be scanned for free admission. Fans trying to enter with a staff or inactive student ID will be required to purchase a ticket for the game. Each match earns students 250 points in the Fan Reward Program, and a link to a leaderboard and more program info is available www.RewardsGoDucks.com .

Overall, the Ducks’ 12-match home schedule is one of UO’s most exciting ever, and features last year’s national champion (UCLA), two more NCAA second-round qualifiers (Stanford, Washington), and two other postseason first-round advancers (Arizona, California).

Fans can purchase season ticket packages and single match tickets via www.GoDucks.com or in person at the Duck ticket office (1-800-WEB-FOOT) during normal weekday business hours.

Prices for the season and single-game tickets are similar to last year and follow:

SEASON // SINGLE MATCH TICKETS
Reserved - $100 // $10
Adult GA –  $60 // $6
*Child & Senior GA  – $26 // $5
Group (10 or more and arranged in advance) – Single Game = $3

* = children ages 2-17, and seniors 62 and older.

Families that support the Ducks can also save money on season tickets by purchasing a general admission family plan. The package is available for $50 per adult ticket and $25 per child ticket (and two tickets or more of each age category must be purchased for this rate).


2012 DUCK TEAM PREVIEW
Among the team's six returning starters and nine letterwinners, the Ducks welcome back a pair of All-Pac-12 picks in All-American and senior outside hitter Alaina Bergsma and junior setter Lauren Plum.

UO also returns a host of other starters in All-Pac-12 Freshman Team choice and outside hitter Liz Brenner, All-Pac-12 Honorable Mention and junior middle blocker Ariana Williams, senior outside hitter Katherine Fischer, A2 National Team member and senior libero Haley Jacob and senior defensive specialist Kellie Kawasaki.

Oregon’s other returnees include sophomore setter Shellsy Ashen and defensive specialist Natalie Bookout Gonzalez who played 28 and 23 matches of the team’s 31 matches last fall.

The Ducks also welcome one of their top newcomer classes ever – ranked No. 14 nationally by PrepVolleyball.com. The five-person freshman group is composed of Italian product and middle blocker Clelia DeFelice, prep All-America outside hitter Martenne Bettendorf, Senior Ace middle blocker Canace Finley, Senior Ace 150 outside hitter Madison Magee and All-CIF libero Tatum Norton.

UO also added one transfer in senior outside hitter Bethany (Wray) Bair - a two-time All-Big Sky honorable mention for Weber State in 2010 and '11.

Under the direction of eighth-year head coach Jim Moore, Oregon comes off a 21-10 campaign in 2011. Oregon was rewarded with its fifth NCAA tournament trip the past six years, its sixth straight +19-win season, and its third, upper division league finish in his tenure.


YOUTH REVOLT
The Oregon roster is one of head coach Jim Moore’s most balanced in recent memory with five seniors (Bethany Bair, Alaina Bergsma, Katherine Fischer, Haley Jacob, Kellie Kawasaki), two juniors (Lauren Plum, Ariana Williams), three sophomores (Shellsy Ashen, Natalie Bookout Gonzalez, Liz Brenner) and five freshmen (Martenne Bettendorf, Clelia DeFelice, Canace Finley, Maddie Magee, Tatum Norton).


ALL-TOURNAMENT PROPS
Five current Ducks have been tabbed to regular season all-tourney teams in their career, and their accolades follow:
Alaina Bergsma (OH) – Tournament MVP (3): Baymont Invitational (2012), Sports Import DC Koehl Classic (2012), Allstate Sugar Bowl Collegiate Classic (2010), All-Tournament Team (3): AVCA Showcase (2011)
Katherine Fischer (OH) – Tournament MVP (1): Oregon Classic (2010); All-Tournament Team (2): Baymont Invitational (2012)
Haley Jacob (L) - All-Tournament Team (1): Oregon Classic (2010)
Lauren Plum (S) – All-Tournament Team (2): Bulldog Classic (2010), Oregon Classic (2010)
Ariana Williams (MB) – All-Tournament Team (3): Sports Import DC Koehl Classic (2012), Allstate Sugar Bowl Collegiate Classic (2010), Oregon Classic (2010)


DUCK HONOR ROLL
Last fall, redshirt senior outside hitter Alaina Bergsma was rewarded with Oregon’s seventh all-time All-America honor with her nod on the 14-person AVCA All-America Third Team, while junior setter Lauren Plum received her first All-America Honorable Mention nod.

Bergsma became the fifth Duck ever to stake honors in program history, with three others coming in the seven-year tenure of Oregon head coach Jim Moore - Neticia Enesi (3rd-2009; 2nd-‘10; Sonja Newcombe (2nd-2009) and Gorana Maricic (2nd-2008, 2nd-‘07). Oregon’s only other recipient, Sue Harbour, was a first-team pick in 1984.

Bergsma was also an All-Region honoree on the 14-person team, and Plum was an honorable mention for the squad composed of players from the Pac-12, Big Sky and West Coast Conferences.

Bergsma and Plum were also tabbed to the All-Pac-12 First Team, junior middle blocker Ariana Williams was an honorable mention, and outside hitter Liz Brenner was tabbed to the All-Pac-12 Freshman Team.

Bergsma’s and Plum’s honors were the eighth and ninth in head coach Jim Moore’s eight-year tenure and raised Oregon’s overall tally to 18 (while Plum was UO’s first-ever setter honoree). Likewise, Brenner was Moore’s sixth All-Pac-12 Freshman Team honoree and 13th in school history since the origin of the conference in 1986.

After the season, junior libero Haley Jacob was tabbed to the USA Volleyball A2 National Team for her play in the national team tryouts in January in Colorado Springs. She followed the lead of Bergsma and Plum who were chosen to the 2011 squad, and the latter player was a 2011 U.S. Junior National Team player and started six of the team's eight matches in the FIVB World Junior Championships.

Among other noteworthy honors, Bergsma won the Miss Oregon title in the Miss America USA pageant in November and won the Miss Photogenic Award in the event held last spring.

2011 SEASON RECAP
Last season, UO staked one of its greatest seasons and celebrated its first-ever wins against top-ranked foes. 

Oregon opened the campaign with a 3-1 win at the then-four-time defending Penn State in the AVCA Showcase and ended its NCAA record 94-match home winning streak. In November, Oregon’s comeback from an 0-2 deficit at home to UCLA was barely a month before the Bruins won the NCAA title.

The following week in November, Oregon beat the then-returning league champions – No. 3 California and No. 5 Stanford – by 3-1 and 3-2 counts. The Stanford win was its second-ever in Palo Alto, and first in Berkeley  since ’06. It had been more than 20 years since UO had beaten both teams on the road in 1986 and ’89, and once in Eugene under Moore in ’09.

Oregon’s fifth upset of a top-10 team in 2011 was a 3-0 October sweep of then-No. 7 Washington – its first blanking of the Huskies since 1995.

Other wins vs. NCAA advancers came via sweeps against Arizona (twice), and American, Delaware and Liberty in its September East Coast trip.

In December, UO wrapped the season in the NCAA tournament first with a hard-fought five-set loss to Mountain West champion Colorado State in Honolulu.

Overall, UO played 12 teams that were selected for the 64-team NCAA tournament, and owned a 10-8 record en route to a national RPI rating of #30.

Six other league teams stood top 50 in the final RPI standings - USC (eighth), UCLA (15th), Stanford (18th), California (29th), Washington (35th) and Arizona (49th). Other Pac-12 teams’ ratings follow: Oregon State (103rd), Utah (138th), Arizona State (141st), Washington State (156th) and Colorado (183rd).

The entire listing is available at this website ( http://web1.ncaa.org/app_data/weeklyrpi/2011WVBrpi1.html ), and 2012’s rankings will begin in October.


2011 NCAA TOURNEY / PAC-12 NOTES
The Ducks were one of seven conference teams selected for the 2011 NCAA tournament – the sixth straight year the league has advanced six or more teams.

With its 3-2 win over #3 seed Illinois in San Antonio, No. 9 seed/No. 4-ranked UCLA (30-6, 17-5 (2nd)) won its fourth national title, and first since 1991.

Fellow semifinalist and Pac-12 champion USC (29-5, 20-2 (1st)) received the league’s highest NCAA tourney seeding – seventh – after it ranked first nationally the last three weeks and stood top five nationally since the start of October.

A third league team received a top-16 seeding - #11 Stanford (22-8, 15-7 (4th-t)) – and the Cardinal advanced to the round of 16 with Washington (24-8, 15-7 (4th-t)), while Arizona (19-13, 11-11 (7th) and California (26-7, 16-6 (3rd)) lost in the first round.

Overall, Texas received the tourney’s #1 seed although its highest AVCA national ranking of the year – fifth – came the final two weeks of the regular season. The Bruins beat the Longhorns, 3-1 in the regional final, while the tourney’s #2 seed - Nebraska - lost in the second round at home to unseeded Kansas State, 3-2.

Oregon’s sixth-place Pac-12 finish was its third upper-division league effort under Moore after fourth- and fifth-place efforts in 2008 and '07. Other Moore-led squads took sixth in the 10-team Pac-10 standings in '06 and seventh in '10 against the nation's top volleyball league. Before Moore’s arrival, UO stood in the top half of the Pac-10/12 that started in 1986 with its fourth-place finishes in 1986, ’87 and ’89.


POSTSEASON SUCCESS
Oregon has made NCAA Tournament trips in five of the last six years under Jim Moore, including its first-ever pair of NCAA Regional trips in 2007 and ‘08.

UO is 5-5 in postseason play under Moore, compared to a 1-5 mark in its four other NCAA appearances since the first tourney in 1981 (1984, ’86, ’87, ’89) that expanded to 64 teams in ‘98.

A list of NCAA appearances in his tenure follows:
2011 Colorado State - L, 2-3 (26-24, 21-25, 21-25, 25-15, 10-15), 1st Round at Honolulu, Hawai'i 
2009 Clemson - W 3-0 (25-17, 25-21, 25-20), 1st Round at Lexington, Kent.
2009 Kentucky - L, 0-3 (20-25, 22-25, 17-25), 2nd Round at Lexington, Kent.
2008 Delaware - W, 3-0 (25-16, 25-18, 25-15), 1st Round at Washington, D.C.
2008 North Carolina - W, 3-1 (25-20, 24-26, 25-19, 25-19), 2nd Round at Washington D.C.

2007 Kansas State - W, 3-2 (24-30, 20-30, 30-27, 36-34, 15-11), 2nd Round at Manhattan, Kan.
2007 UCLA - L, 1-3 (23-30, 19-30, 30-28, 24-30), Regional at Stanford, Calif.
2006 Hawai’i - L, 0-3 (17-30, 17-30, 18-30), 1st Round at Long Beach State

This season’s NCAA tournament announcement will be broadcast on Sunday, November 25 at 1 p.m. Pacific Time live by ESPNU.

The top 16 seeds will then host four-team first- and second-round matches Thursday-Sunday, November 29-December 2.

The following weekend, the remaining 16 teams will play in four, four-team regionals hosted in Austin, Texas, Gainesville, Fla., Omaha, Neb., and West Lafayette,  Ind., on Friday-Sunday, December 7-8, with all matches broadcast on Friday by ESPN3 and Saturday by ESPNU.

The national semifinal and final will then be held hosted in Louisville, Kent., on Thu., and Friday, December 13 and 15, and will be broadcast by ESPN2.


MOORE COACHING NOTES
In 2011, 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 (158-84, 2005-present) 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).

In 2012, UO logged 10 wins or more in its first 15 matches under Moore for the eighth straight year, and its victory totals in that span follow: 2012 (14), ‘11 (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).

With its school-record-tying 14 straight wins in 2012, Oregon has won nine or more straight matches each of the last seven years and their longest streaks each year follow – 2012 (14* –a Duck record since NCAA volleyball play started in ‘81), ‘11 (10), 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 37-0 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,)’11 (3-0) and ’12 (4-0).

Including conference play the last eight seasons, UO has staked an impressive 77-33 home record, and its overall year-by-year home marks under Moore (and conference) follow: 2012 (9-2), 2011 10-4 (7-4); 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 22 wins in 2012, UO has claimed +17 wins for seven straight years for the first time in the modern volleyball era in 1981. All seven have come under Moore (22-’12, 21-’11; 19-‘10; 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 six straight years in a similar span. Since the start of the Pac-12 in 1986, Moore’s teams own five of the team’s 20-win seasons (with the others coming in ’89 (21) and ’86 (22)).

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 5-5 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 87 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. 2 three times in September and October this season among its 13 combined weeks in the top 10 (and all eight of its all-time top-five pollings the last eight weeks).

Oregon has beaten 20, top-10 ranked teams under Moore (compared with six in the 23 previous years of the modern volleyball era (1981-2004)). Considering matches vs. top-five teams since '82, UO has staked all 10 of its victories since 2006, and 27 of its 47 all-time wins vs. top-25 teams (with 20 of those Moore-directed latter wins considered upsets based on that week’s national rankings).

HOME COURT MAGIC
With its second-best attendance mark ever (5,007) vs. No. 1 Stanford in late November, UO has welcomed five of its top-25 all-time biggest home crowds in league tilts this year. Others have come vs. then-No. 2 Washington (#3, 3,978), Washington State (#9, 2928), Oregon State (#16, 2,355), California (#2, 2,011) and Utah (#25, 1,864).

In October 2011, the Ducks welcomed a home record volleyball crowd of 6,210 to Matthew Knight Arena for the match vs. returning league co-champion and No. 4 California. A month later it added its eighth-best mark (3,065) in its regular season finale vs. Oregon State.

Altogether the last eight years under head coach Jim Moore, the Ducks have played in front of 20 of the 26 largest home volleyball crowds ever at Matthew Knight Arena and McArthur Court.

Oregon’s burgeoning fan support has helped the program to a 35-0 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), ‘11 (3-0) and ’12 (2-0).

A complete list of the top-26 ranked crowds during the Moore era follows:
 
- 6,210 (#1, vs. California, 10/7/11)
- 5,007 (#2, vs. Stanford, 11/4/12)
- 3,978 (#3, vs. Washington, 10/13/12)
- 3,817 (#4, vs. Washington, 11/16/08)
- 3,564 (#6, vs. Washington 9/25/09)
- 3,169 (#7, vs. Washington State, 11/14/08)

- 1,842 (#26, vs. California, 11/16/06)
 

Season-wise, Oregon jumped four spots this week to 14th nationally this week in average home crowd attendance (2,341), even after its first three home dates were played before the start of the fall academic term.

For comparison’s sake, the Ducks’ UO's 2011 home average (1,704) ranked 20th nationally among the 330 Division 1 teams after it ranked 27th in both 2010 (1,295) and 2009 (1,433). In 2008, its nine-match conference average (2,393) was almost a 1,000 better than its 2007 average (1,412).

BRAINS & BRAWN
In 2011, senior outside hitter Katherine Fischer repeated as a Capital One Academic All-America First Team choice after she picked up Third-Team honors in 2010.

The accounting major from Los Altos, Calif., sported a 4.02 cumulative GPA before last fall – the highest among the three teams nationally – and became the second Duck to ever repeat honors with four-time recipient Sue Harbor (First Team - 1984, '85); Second Team – 1982, ‘83).

Two other Ducks have received third-team honors once before - Kristen Bitter (2006) and Casey Crisler (1997).

Fischer also received her second academic all-district honor, and was one of five Ducks honored to Pacific-12 Conference All-Academic Teams.

Fischer repeated on the conference academic first team, and other honorees included second-team honorees and outside hitters Lauren Gross and Alaina Bergsma, and honorable mentions and defensive specialist Kellie Kawasaki and setter Lauren Plum.

UO has now racked up 30 conference all-academic honors in seven years under head coach Jim Moore. In prior years, UO received at least three honors in 2010 (6), ‘08 (4), ‘07 (4), '06 (4) and '05 (5), to go along with two in ’09.

In the summer, the team picked up its second AVCA Team Academic Award after it maintained a +3.30 team GPA for the 2011-12 academic year. UO received similar honors twice before under Moore in 2005-06 and 2009-10, and also the season prior to his arrival (2004-05).


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-12 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 in ‘10, 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 24th 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 eighth-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.

He picked up his 400th and 500th overall career wins vs. Oregon State (11/16/07) and Utah (9/28/12), and now owns an overall record of 510-240 as a collegiate head coach.
