Home and away: Arizona is 8-0 at home this season. The Ducks are 2-2 on the road with wins at California and Washington and losses at Kansas State and Stanford.
Standings: Oregon is in second place in the Pac-12 with a 7-1 record, including a forfeit from UCLA. The Ducks list their record as 14-5 on their website, but their game against NAIA Carroll College does not count in the official NCAA record.
Arizona is fourth at 5-3 in Pac-12 play.
Projections: Her Hoop Stats gives the Wildcats a 61.7 percent win probability in McKale Center. The model predicts 63.6 points for Arizona and 60.4 points for Oregon. When the game was in Eugene, the service predicted a victory for Oregon by about two points.
If the game was held in Eugene again, the Ducks would have a 63.9 percent win probability. On a neutral court, the model also favors Oregon with a 51.2 percent probability.
