Ducks cook Cougars, advance to round of 32

by DSH basketball columnist Eric Sloat The Oregon team that played in this game had little if any resemblance to the one that escaped with an overtime victory against BYU in December.

Vine: Oregon’s Elgin Cook Slams Down Huge Put Back Dunk

The seven seed Oregon Ducks find themselves in a tough battle with the 10-seed BYU Cougars. It’s been an entertaining game, especially since BYU went on a run to cut into the Ducks’ lead, but the play of the game thus far was made at the 16:30 mark of the second half. Sophomore Elgin Cook did what forwards are supposed to do and followed the ball to the rim—and he was rewarded...

Oregon’s Elgin Cook Throws Down Vicious Put-Back Dunk
