The game was by no means a cakewalk. Louisville was the Big East champion, the number one overall seed in the tournament, and a favorite to win it all. However, these were the Ducks with chips the size of steamrollers on their shoulders, a team that might have finished in the top five in the nation were it not for an injury to talented freshman Dominic Artis.

Just by looking at the stat sheet, it’s hard to get a feel for just how important freshman guard Dominic Artis is to the Oregon Ducks.
On the year, Artis is averaging 8.4 points, 3.3 assists and is shooting just 33% from the field. The numbers show that he is a solid contributor for Dana Altman’s team, but not much more.

Oregon coach Dana Altman is going...

With Wednesday's impressive 65-52 win over the Washington Huskies the Oregon Ducks appear to have broken out of their slump.
Since Oregon's freshman point guard, Dominic Artis, went down with a foot injury on January 26th, the Ducks had been struggling mightily. Prior to Wednesday, Oregon was just 2-3 without Artis and looked far from a top-25 team in his absence.
Coming off back-to-back road losses, Oregon has to like its chances of getting back on track with a couple of home games up next.
Starting point guard Dominic Artis, though, is uncertain to be available again Thursday night when the No. 19 Ducks put a 20-game home winning streak on the line against Colorado.

Just when Oregons scheduled cleared up nicely, the medical report clouded. The Ducks rode into the AP top 10 and to the top spot in Pac-12 with one of the deepest groups in the league, so the loss of freshman point guard Dominic Artis might not be as difficult to handle as it might appear. Not that it will be easy.
Artis, one of the bountiful crop of freshmen whose addition has...
With Oregon’s starting point guard out for the season one must wonder how the ducks will fare for the rest of the season. Artis averaged 10.2 ppg for the ducks so far this season and they have been 6-0 since the christmas. Artis is expected to come back this season but when is the question?
