Sedona Prince is returning to Oregon for a fifth season, the redshirt junior announced Saturday on social media.

“I’ll be back next season to pursue my masters degree and a national championship,” Prince wrote. “I love you Duck Family and I’m excited to be coming back. Here’s to another.”

Prince, who was eligible to enter the WNBA Draft, is averaging 9.3 points, 4.4 rebounds and 1.4 blocks per game in 24 appearances for the 18-8 Ducks this season. Last year, the forward averaged 10.4 points and 3.9 rebounds per game and sparked a gender equity movement in the NCAA after posting a video of the inferior weight-room amenities at the DI Women’s Basketball Tournament.

With Nyara Sabally declaring for the draft, Prince will give Oregon a much-needed veteran presence in the frontcourt.
