Oregon Duck Jaz Shelley (4) pushes forward with Camryn Brown’s (35) arm laced in with hers after Brown reached for the ball. The game was a tight back and forth duel between the teams until the final play at Matthew Knight Arena on Sunday, Jan. 3, 2021.

The Ducks (11-3, 9-3), who had their three previous games postponed due to COVID-19 protocols following a positive test within the program, are scheduled to host UC Davis on Saturday at Matthew Knight Arena (6 p.m., GoDucks.com livestream)

The nonconference game was added after Oregon’s home against Arizona State scheduled for Friday was postponed. The Ducks traveled to Salt Lake City last week before having to postpone road games at Utah and Colorado with all team activities being paused.

Makeup dates for the three postponed games have not been announced.

UC Davis has had 15 games canceled this season due to COVID-19 issues, teams opting out and a Yolo County (Calif.) health order that forced the program to pause in December.

This will be the first game for the Aggies (5-0), who have won four consecutive outright Big West championships and are 4-0 in conference play this season, since a 78-61 win at UC Santa Barbara on Jan. 30.

The Ducks, who haven’t played since a 69-52 victory over Washington on Jan. 24, could probably use the tune-up game before facing No. 9 Arizona on Monday at Matthew Knight Arena (4 p.m., ESPN2).

The Wildcats (11-2, 9-2) dominated Oregon 57-41 in the first meeting but have had their last four games postponed, including Friday’s game at Oregon State.
