The Oregon women’s basketball team received good news regarding star forward Jillian Alleyne. The sophomore tweeted late Tuesday night that she will play against the reigning national-champion Huskies Wednesday night in Connecticut.
I'm telling y'all God ANSWERS prayers , I'll be on the floor with my team tomorrow against Uconn .

Alleyne gave Ducks fans quite a scare after she left the game early on Sunday against Sacramento State. Alleyne, the reigning Pac-12 Freshman of the Year, has already recorded two double-doubles for the Ducks this season. Despite missing most of the game on Sunday, Alleyne is averaging 18.7 points per game and 12.3 rebounds.
When the two teams met last year on New Year’s Eve, the Ducks fell to the Huskies 95-51.
Alleyne (ankle) and Amanda Delgado (knee) were listed as questionable in the game notes distributed to the media on Tuesday morning.
The game tips off at 4 p.m., PT and will be televised on SNY and ESPN3.com.
