Five years ago, an Oregon Ducks basketball squad rumbled through the Pac-10 tournament unscathed, untouched and unstoppable en route to its second conference championship in program history.
Now, the Ducks are in somewhat similar territory: in need of a tournament sweep to go dancing in March.
At 19-8, Oregon doesn't turn many experts' heads for an at-large bid into the NCAA tournament, if at all. The Ducks have pocketed a few quality wins, but they still find themselves on the bubble, on the outside looking in, hoping for a sudden burst of energy that could trigger a streak like that of 2007.
The foundation is there for Oregon, which has won four of the last six games, although the Ducks could have gone 6-for-6 if not for narrow losses to Colorado and Cal along the way. Either way, the next few weeks will decide Oregon's fate. A loss in any of the final three regular-season games or an early exit from the Pac-12 tournament could strike down the Ducks' hopes at an...
BEST OF MAXIM
The Oregon Ducks basketball team is playing for their livelihood. With 3 games to go in the season, the Ducks are on the bubble of making the NCAA Tournament field of 68 teams. Sweating it out won’t be easy either as each team left on the schedule is playing to end the Ducks’ dreams of March.
2012 has been an enigmatic year for college basketball, as it’s taken a back seat...
Part 2: The Civil War
As I begin the yin article, to my previous yang (link to OSU article), I must keep telling myself I’m a Beaver fan and all will be okay.
What I’m embarking on here for my readers is to give you five reasons why Duck fans should tune in to the Civil War basketball match-up this Sunday.
As both teams prepare for the PAC-12 tournament, starting on March...
It seems as long as Chip Kelly is going to be around, Oregon is going to be a fantasy factory for players select from. 2011 was no different as both QB Darron Thomas and RB LaMichael James put up big-time numbers. They also got some surprise help from some players who were made the most of their limited opportunities on the field. Let’s take a peek at what transpired...
Kevin Danna brings his very in-depth insights and observations from Stanford's loss versus the Oregon Ducks, 68-64, on Sunday afternoon at Maples Pavilion.
Former Oregon running back LaMichael James has been working out at the Athletes' Performance Institute in Los Angeles, California in preparation for the NFL Combine and Draft.
The past three seasons have been the greatest three year stretch in the history of the Oregon Ducks football program. While their wildly creative offensive minded coach has garnered most of the attention, the Ducks have played better defense than most people have realized. The Ducks play an attacking defense that is made possible by the hard work of the "big uglies" in...
The Vanderbilt Commodores (1-3) welcome the Oregon Ducks (4-1) to Hawkins Field for their first home series of the 2012 season. After an impressive 40-24 2010 finish, the Ducks finished 2011 at 33-26 overall and 11-16 for eighth in the Pac-10. The Ducks dropped their first game of the 2012 season 4-1, and then won the Saturday contest 3-2 before taking the two following games by a score of 26-11.
Kevin Ziomek went five innings, allowing only two unearned runs, but the Commodores couldn't hold their early 2-0 lead, dropping the first game of their series against the Oregon Ducks 4-2 in front of 2,058 fans on a chilly February afternoon.
The Oregon Ducks added added one OL in the class of 2012, so for the next class they will likely add several. Evan Voeller is one of their targets shown here in these highlight clips.
