Eugene, Ore. -- Oregon women's basketball continued their stellar play in the NCAA Women's Tournament, winning in the Sweet 16 to set up an Elite Eight matchup with Mississippi State. South Dakota State came into the Moda Center following an upset win over Syracuse and an 18 game winning streak, and the Ducks wiped it out over four quarters with a comprehensive 63-53 win. 

Junior guard Sabrina Ionescu finished with 17 points, 11 assists, and 7 rebounds and junior Ruthy Hebard contributed 24 points and 14 rebounds. Despite sharpshooter Erin Boley not converting a shot on the night, the Ducks managed to get help on other areas of the floor while holding the Jackrabbits to 25.7 % shooting from the field and 20.8 % shooting from 3 point range. 

Their third straight trip to the Elite Eight, the Ducks will take on Mississippi State with a trip to the Final Four on the line. Last time both teams met was at Matthew Knight Arena, with Oregon winning 82-74. The Bulldogs only lost one game for the rest of the season following that trip, and are coming off of a 76-53 victory over Arizona State in the Sweet 16. 

Tip-off for the Elite Eight matchup will be at 11 a.m. at the Moda Center in Portland. The winner will head to Tampa to play for a spot in the NCAA Championship.
