EUGENE, Ore. – Jillian Alleyne and Chrishae Rowe were both named All-Pac-12 by the league's media, the conference announced on Wednesday.
The media also named Alleyne to the all-defensive team. Rowe earned all-freshman team honors, after also being named all-freshman by the league's coaches on Tuesday.
Alleyne was recently selected as an All-Pac-12 choice by the coaches as well, the first Duck to earn that honor since Amanda Johnson in 2011-12.The sophomore is the fifth All-Pac-12 selection for Oregon under head coach Paul Westhead. Johnson earned the honor in 2012, Nia Jackson in 2011 plus Taylor Lilley and Micaela Cocks in 2010.
The Fontana, Calif., native currently leads the nation in both rebounding (15.7 rpg) and double-doubles (26) while ranking third in the Pac-12 in scoring (21.6 ppg).
Alleyne also broke the program’s single-season rebounds record of 376, previously held by Bev Smith. She enters the Pac-12 Tournament with 455 rebounds and needs just 11 more to tie the Pac-12 single-season rebounds record of 466, set by Stanford standout Chiney Ogwumike last year. Her 26 double-doubles this season also broke Bev Smith’s single-season Oregon record of 24.
Alleyne became the fastest player in school history to reach 1,000 career points when the Ducks upset No. 20 Arizona State on Feb. 28. She also became the only sophomore in UO history to join the 1,000 points club and has an opportunity to become just the third player in Oregon history to reach 2,000 career points.
In one of the best rookie seasons ever at Oregon, Rowe has racked up the accolades heading into the Pac-12 Tournament this week. The freshman recently was named All-Pac-12 honorable mention by the coaches, as well as being named to the Pac-12 All-Freshman team.
Rowe, who is the nation’s top-scoring freshman this season at 21.7 points per game also ranks 16th in the league in rebounds per game (6.6). The freshman has already matched Smith’s program record for most 35-plus point games in a career with three. One of which was a school-record 41 points against Seattle U on Dec. 4. at KeyArena, the site of this week’s Pac-12 Tournament.
