The Oregon Ducks women's basketball team hasn't played since losing to South Florida in the third-place game of the Battle 4 Atlantis tournament on Nov. 22.

Despite that, the Ducks fell once again in the latest AP Top 25 Poll released Monday morning.

Oregon (3-2) is tied for 18th with Ohio State with 204 points. That's three spots lower than last week when the Ducks were 15th with 285 points.

From Nov. 20-22, Oregon played three games in three days during the Battle 4 Atlantis held in the Bahamas. Oregon defeated Oklahoma in the first game of the tournament while losing to South Carolina and South Florida.

Oregon will look to get back on track Wednesday as it hosts UC Davis at Matthew Knight Arena at 3:30 p.m. The Ducks also will play at Portland at 6 p.m. Saturday.

Currently, Oregon is dealing with a number of injuries, including to Te-Hina Paopao (undisclosed), Taylor Bigby (left foot) and Endyia Rogers (broken hand). Paopao did not travel to the Bahamas as she rested in Eugene and will be out indefinitely, according to Oregon coach Kelly Graves.

Nyara Sabally, who finished with 30 points against Oklahoma, also missed the Ducks' last two games. Because the Ducks have been so shorthanded, Oregon played with eight players in its previous two games.
