EUGENE, Ore. (AP) After four years as a point guard on Oregon's basketball team, Johnathan Loyd is making the transition to receiver for the Ducks, taking advantage of an NCAA rule that allows a player a fifth year of eligibility - in a different sport.

Looking for something interesting on the internet today? Look no further than this picture of Oregon point guard Johnathan Lloyd trying to defend 7-foot-6 Mamadou Ndiaye in last night’s matchup between the Ducks and UC-Irvine.
