Kevin Pelton ESPN Staff Writer 

What a night for Oregon, which backed up the Pac-12 regular-season title by winning the Pac-12 Tournament for the first time in program history. The Ducks pulled away from defending champion Stanford in the second half, winning 77-57 behind a career-high 36 points from Pac-12 Tournament MVP Sabrina Ionescu. Ionescu broke Candice Wiggins' record of 30 points in a Pac-12 Tournament championship game as Oregon avenged one of its two losses from conference play, both of which came with starter Lexi Bando sidelined by injury.

The Pac-12 Tournament championship game has been a showcase for conference Player of the Year Sabrina Ionescu, whose 28 points through three quarters are two shy of Candice Wiggins' championship game record. Behind Ionescu's scoring, Oregon leads Stanford 54-43 and is 10 minutes away from following up a regular-season championship with the first Pac-12 Tournament title in program history.

Oregon is 29-4 largely on the strength of its offense, ranked fourth in per-possession scoring according to HerHoopStats.com. Despite 17 points from star Sabrina Ionescu, the Ducks hold a 31-24 lead over Stanford at halftime of the Pac-12 Tournament championship game largely on the strength of their defense. The Cardinal turned the ball over 10 times in the first half, including as many turnovers as points (seven apiece) in the second quarter.

Pac-12 Player of the Year Sabrina Ionescu has already made her presence felt in the Pac-12 Tournament championship game, scoring 12 points in the first quarter as Oregon rallied from an early seven-point deficit to take an 18-12 lead after one period. Stanford started 6-of-7 from the field, but the Cardinal missed eight of their next nine shots.

Ionescu, Oregon dethrone Stanford for Pac-12 tourney title

Playing in their first Pac-12 tournament title game, the Ducks looked nothing like newbies. They looked like a team that might be able to get used to this, and sophomore soon-to-be-All-American Sabrina Ionescu put on a show with 36 points.

Kevin Pelton ESPN Staff Writer 

Sunday's Pac-12 Tournament final at Seattle's KeyArena will match the top two seeds, Oregon and Stanford. While the Cardinal cruised past Arizona State behind a career-high six 3-pointers from freshman Kiana Williams, the Ducks needed to rally from an eight-point deficit with 6:05 remaining to beat UCLA in the opening semifinal. Defending champion Stanford, which has won 12 of the 16 Pac-12 Tournaments, won the only regular-season meeting between the two teams 78-65 in Eugene. Oregon, looking for its first Pac-12 Tournament title, was without starting guard Lexi Bando in that game.
