WALNUT CREEK, Calif. – In a vote of the Pac-12 Conference coaches, senior forward Amanda Johnson was named to the All-Pac-12 team, league Commissioner Larry Scott announced today.

The Santa Rosa, Calif., native was named to the All-Pac-12 team for the first time in her four-year career, after earning honorable mention nods in 2010 and 2011.

Johnson missed 11 games during her senior season with a fractured thumb, but she has returned to the floor and is averaging 18.4 points and 9.7 rebounds per game while shooting 44.1 percent this year.

While not having reached the conference minimum of 75 percent games played to rank in the league’s standings due to her injury, Johnson would rank second in scoring and fifth in rebounding when compared to her peers.

This season, Johnson has recorded 10 double-doubles, 17 double-figure scoring games and seven 20-point efforts. She has led the Ducks in scoring on a team-best 14 occasions, and also has led UO on the glass 15 times.

Johnson’s career numbers include; 1,495 points, 85 rebounds, 166 three-pointers, 192 steals, 30 double-doubles, 74 double-figure scoring games, three 30-point games, 21 20-point games, 41 times leading the club in scoring and 70 occasions leading the team in rebounding.

Johnson is also currently a finalist for the Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award, and on Feb. 23 was named a Capital One Academic All-American for the third time.

Fellow senior Jasmin Holliday received All-Pac-12 honorable mention accolades. It was Holliday’s first conference honor since being named All-Pac-10 Freshman honorable mention in 2009.

Holliday worked harder than ever this offseason, and was voted by her teammates as the club’s most improved player and the team’s defensive player of the year at the 2012 banquet. The native of Chino Hills, Calif., is averaging a career-best 13.1 points (10th Pac-12) and 6.9 rebounds per game.

Holliday has led Oregon in scoring on eight occasions, and has led the Ducks on the boards 13 times.

She leads the team with 21 double-figure scoring games, and set a new career high, scoring 26 points at Nevada on Dec. 14.   This season, Holliday has posted five 20-point efforts and five double-doubles.

The Ducks ended the regular season with a record of 15-15 and a 7-11 mark in Pac-12 play, as Oregon earned the No. 9 seed in the Pacific Life Women’s Pac-12 Tournament.

The Ducks will open the tournament, playing No. 8 seed Washington at noon on Wednesday in the first game of the first round at the Galen Center in Los Angeles.

Fans can follow all the action on the Pacific Life Pac-12 Tournament YouTube channel, which will broadcast all eight games from the first and second rounds.
