"With the generous support of the Papé group, the Papé Jam has grown into a wonderful event that has established its own tradition," Kent said. "We look forward to playing Marshall University and bringing another outstanding Papé Jam to Portland this season."
Seniors Catherine Kraayeveld and Kayla Steen lead the Women along with juniors Andrea Bills, Kedzie Gunderson, Corrie Mizusawa and Brandi Davis. The Women defeated BYU, 80-78 in last year's Papè Jam. The Women finished with a 12-16 record last season. Bev Smith is in her third year as head coach for the Woman.
The Oregon men and women are a combined 10-0 in the Papé Jam.
"This is the fans best chance to see the best Men's and Women's basketball teams in the northwest at a very affordable price," said Jerè Hanks ESPN Regional. "With the continued success of the Ducks and the scarcity of tickets at Mac Court, the Papè Jam is a great deal for Oregon Duck fans."
Tickets are available through Ticket Master, with great seating remaining. Those travelling to Portland for the game can stay at the Downtown Embassy Suites, 503-279-9000. Ask for the Papè Jam rate!
