MONDAY, APRIL 1, 2019

For the first time in program history, the Oregon Ducks Women’s team is headed to the Women’s Final Four.

Sabrina Ionescu scored 31 points, none bigger than a three-pointer that gave the Ducks a six-point lead with 1:13 to go, to lead the No. 2 seed Ducks to a 88-84 win over top-seeded Mississippi State in the Elite Eight before a raucous 11,534 at the Moda Center on Sunday.

It’s the culmination of a remarkable five-year journey for the Ducks, who went from 10th place in the Pac-12 in 2013-14, the year prior to Kelly Graves taking over the program, to three straight Elite Eight appearances and now a Final Four.

The Gonzaga men’s basketball team’s season came to a close with a 76-69 loss to Texas Tech in the Elite Eight at the Honda Center Saturday.
 
Four Zags finished in double-figures led by Rui Hachimura’s 22 points and six boards. Brandon Clarke finished with 18 points and game-high 12 rebounds. Josh Perkins added 16 points and six assists, while Zach Norvell, Jr. added 10 points.

Mariner’s looking good.  Their defense has been a bit spotty. Their bullpen can be suspect. Their rotation lacks a dominant ace. But when your offense is averaging eight runs per game, turns out a lot of shortcomings get covered up.

So it is that the Mariners find themselves off to their best start in 24 years after pounding out a 10-8 win over the Red Sox on Sunday at T-Mobile Park, taking three of four games from the reigning World Series champs and improving to 5-1 on the season.

It’s just the fourth time in franchise history the Mariners have started 5-1 or better, having gone 6-0 in 1985 and 5-1 in ‘84 and ‘95, and they’re doing it with a club that traded away All-Stars Robinson Cano, Jean Segura, James Paxton and Edwin Diaz and let Nelson Cruz walk in free agency.

After splitting Saturday’s doubleheader, Oregon Tech was swept by College of Idaho in NAIA-West play on Sunday at Kiger Stadium, falling 9-3 in game one and 7-3 in game two in college baseball at Kiger Stadium Sunday.

In softball, No. 13 Oregon Tech finished off a four-game sweep of Northwest Christian   as the Owls extended their win streak to eight games with a 5-3 (11-innings) and 11-1 wins at James Park.
