The Arizona State Sun Devils (0-10 Pac-12, 10-12 overall) could not mount any defense against the No. 15 Oregon Ducks (6-4 Pac-12, 13-5 overall) as they dropped the match in straight sets 20-25, 21-25, 14-25.
For the 20th time in 22 matches senior opposite Oluoma Okaro recorded double-digit kills for the Sun Devils with 14, respectively.
Senior libero Halle Harker was the bright spot for the Sun Devils, as she continued her tear through Pac-12 play with 19 digs over the three sets.
ASU struggled to get any offense going against a big Oregon block though, as the Ducks would record 11 blocks for the match, including five of those blocks coming in the decisive third set victory.
The key to the Ducks victory was the runs.
The Ducks sideout percentage was 68%; anytime ASU scored Oregon would get the serve right bad. On the flip side, the Sun Devils were siding out at a 50.7% clip, allowing the Ducks to go on crucial runs to keep the match out of reach.
The Oregon offense was spread around evenly throughout the match. With only one player recording double-digit kills. Sophomore outside hitter Jolie Rasmussen led the way with 10 kills on 25 attempts, hitting with a .360 hitting percentage.
Besides Okaro, offense was hard to come by for ASU. Peterson struggled to spread the ball around. As a team the Sun Devils hit at a 16.5% clip.
After a forgettable road trip, Arizona State will return to Wells Fargo Arena where, despite losing, they have been competitive against top-25 opponents. ASU will match up with the No. 2 Stanford Cardinal and the California Golden Bears.
