An Oregon women's basketball player has been going viral on social media this month. It's coming at the embarrassment of her opponents.

Aina Ayuso, a guard for the Ducks, has had some of the most-viral plays of the college basketball season. She made some defenders look silly.

Check out this play. Even James Harden would be impressed.

The play came late in No. 6 Oregon's 84-47 quarterfinal win at the Pac-12 tournament over Colorado. It's been retweeted and shared thousands of times. Here's another angle of the play:

Ayuso is a 5-foot-9 guard. She's originally from Spain.

Ayuso went to high school in Barcelona. She's played for Spain's U19 national team.

Here's her bio, from Oregon:

"Played for Spain in the FIBA U19 World Championship, FIBA U18 European Championship and the FIBA U18 3-on-3 Women's World Cup in the summer of 2017...Averaged 6.7 points 2.1 rebounds and 2.0 assists per game in the 2017 U18 Euros...Also played for Spain in the FIBA U16 European Championship in 2015 and the FIBA U17 World Championship in 2016, where she averaged 9.7 points, 3.6 rebounds and 4.1 assists per game."

Ayuso has continued to impress for Oregon deeper into March. She did this earlier in the NCAA Tournament:

And she kind of feels bad for making her opponents look so silly.

The No. 2-seeded Ducks are set to play in the Sweet 16 on Saturday. Tipoff is scheduled for 6 p.m. E.T.
