Graves Signs Grad Transfer Shannon Dufficy


EUGENE, Ore. — The Oregon women’s basketball team has added 1,137 career points and 936 rebounds to its 2021-22 roster with the signing of graduate transfer Shannon Dufficy, head coach Kelly Graves announced on Friday.
A 6-foot-2 forward, Dufficy played the 2020-21 season at Missouri, where she averaged 6.5 points and 4.5 rebounds per game in 22 contests. Prior to joining the Tigers and sitting out the 2019-20 season due to NCAA transfer rules, Dufficy racked up 995 points and 838 rebounds across three seasons with Utah State.
“Shannon is a great addition to our program,” said Graves. “She brings a terrific veteran presence and a wealth of experience to our roster. I love the way she approaches the game, and her versatile skillset will allow her to play multiple positions for us. We can’t wait to get her to Eugene.”
Dufficy started the final six games of the 2020-21 season for Missouri, scoring in double figures four times. She went 7-of-11 from the floor and 5-of-7 from three-point range for a season-high 19 points on February 21 against Florida, her best game as a Tiger. Dufficy matched her season-high with eight rebounds in each of Missouri’s final three games of the season.
A native of Melbourne, Australia, Dufficy enjoyed a terrific three-year stint at Utah State from 2016-17 to 2018-19. She ended her Aggies career tied for the program’s all-time lead with 31 double-doubles while ranking second with 838 rebounds.
Dufficy was an all-Mountain West performer in 2018-19, averaging a double-double with 15.8 points and 10.3 rebounds per game. She broke the single-season program record with 19 double-doubles, including a record nine straight from December 22 to January 30. Dufficy’s 339 rebounds were also a school record, and she scored in double figures 27 times.
Dufficy’s best scoring performance came in her final regular-season game with Utah State, a career-best 29-point showing against Colorado State. That was one of 10 games of 20-plus points for Dufficy as a junior, when she shot 44.2 percent from the floor and 33.3 percent from deep. She had three games with at least 15 rebounds, including a 17-point, 16-board performance at UTSA, while also racking up 51 total steals and 30 blocked shots.
As a sophomore in 2017-18, Dufficy averaged 7.9 points and 8.2 rebounds per game. She scored in double figures 11 times, including a 21-point outing against UNLV.
Dufficy was a Mountain West all-freshman team selection in 2016-17, averaging 8.2 points and 8.7 rebounds per game. She had 11 double-digit rebounding performances, pulling down a career-high 17 points against Colorado State. Dufficy showed out against Arizona in her ninth career game, going 8-of-13 from the floor for 21 points while grabbing 11 rebounds for her first career double-double.
