Eugene, OR. -- The No. 24 ranked Ducks are looking to get conference play off to a strong start after going 4-5 in a loaded non-conference schedule that included a trio of top-10 opponents. But now they feel they have the game reps to turn things around for Pac-12 play.

"I thought we learned a lot. It sucks to learn things through losses. But like [Coach Ulmer] always says you gain experience when things don't go your way,” said middle blocker Ronika Stone. “Obviously a lot of things didn't go our way over the trip. But we just gained more experience throughout it. But I think it taught us a lot of lessons that will carry on into Pac-12 play."

"I think everyone is starting to get more comfortable at their positions,” said outside hitter Brooke Nuneviller. “I think they're developing their wall and understanding what they need to do and what they can bring to the team."

Oregon will travel up the I-5 to take on Oregon State in its first Pac-12 game Thursday night at 5:30. After playing the Beavers on Thursday, Oregon will return home to Matthew Knight Arena to host No. 18 Utah at 12 p.m. on Sunday in the Ducks' Stomp Out Cancer match in support of childhood cancer awareness month.
