SEATTLE– Week three of the Pac-12 season looms large for the No. 16-ranked Huskies as they host Oregon schools, including the No. 1 Ducks. Washington (11-3, 3-1 Pac-12) can return to a tie for first place in the conference race with a few wins this weekend at Alaska Airlines Arena. The first challenge will be Oregon State on Friday night at 8 p.m., then the No. 12-ranked Ducks come to town for a battle on Sunday night, scheduled for 4 p.m. Both games will be broadcast live on Pac-12 Networks.

UW is coming off a 2-1 road streak in California and is now playing six of its next eight conference games at home. Washington has faced some adversity at the outside hitter position with injuries to Shannon Crenshaw and Madi Endley, injured in last week’s loss to Stanford. But UW responded well in their last game at Cal, sweeping the Bears and getting help from Audra Wilmes in his first career start.

Oregon State is 1-3 in conference and 6-8 overall. Last week, the Beavers were swept by Arizona and lost five assists to Arizona State. Their win came over Cal in five sets. Oregon State is hitting .184 for the season, last in the Pac-12. However, OSU ranks first in digs per set with 15.43, led by Ryan White’s 3.35 digs per set. Mychael Vernon leads the team with 3.15 kills per set, but against ASU, Nursena Ballioglu led the team with 13 kills, hitting .200. Inna Balyko defines the team, averaging 8.65 assists per set.

The Ducks are the only 4-0 team in the Pac-12 so far, having beaten OSU, Stanford and Arizona Schools, all at home and with just one set lost. The Ducks have hit .339 so far in conference and .298 for the season. Oregon is also defending well, averaging 2.50 blocks per set to place fifth and 15.27 digs per set to place third overall. Senior All-American Brooke Nuneviller is third in the Pac-12 with 4.20 kills per set. Libero Georgia Murphy is fifth with 3.91 digs per set and Washington State transfer Hannah Pukis is fifth with 10.30 assists per set. Gloria Mutiri is hitting .335 with 2.17 kills per set, and rookie Mimi Colyer is second on the team with 3.53 kills per set, hitting .272.
