Dana Altman’s All-In Strategy On College Free Agents Is Paying Off For The Oregon Ducks

When former Portland prep star Mike Moser announced earlier this week that he was transferring from UNLV to the University of Oregon for his senior season, it barely moved the curiosity meter. “Oh good,” Duck fans thought, “he ought to help the team.” Before Dana Altman showed up in Eugene, UO basketball players arrived in town either toting their high school diplomas...

Oregon Ducks Fail Short Of Elite Eight: What Went Right And What Went Wrong

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.  Oklahoma State...

2013 March Madness (Midwest and South Regions) – Sweet 16 and Elite 8

Well, that was embarrassing. I hyped up the Sweet Sixteen games as being great, and then three out of the four games last night were unwatchable blowouts. Even worse than that, I went 0-4 in my picks. Hopefully better things await tonight. This set of games features the best and then the team that no one but me and the Miami Hurricanes knew about a week ago. The Cardinals looked...

Just a Few Things

Stay safe everybody on Zulema St. Down in Houston to see family. Wonder if this might be a topic of discussion with my sister and brother-in-law (both Rice alum)? Oregon’s Arsalan Kazemi? has been a key player in the Ducks’ run to the Sweet 16, but while at Rice from 2009-12 he alleged that Owls athletic director Rick Greenspan repeatedly made insulting and discriminating remarks...

Louisville Faces Another Test On The Backboard

The biggest test for Louisville in their third round game against Colorado State was controlling the backboard. Colorado State was second in the country in rebounds and out-rebounded their second round opponent, Missouri, 36-18. Going into that game, Missouri was ranked number one in the country at rebounds. As you could expect, Coach Pitino was preaching rebounding to his team heading...

An Overall Look At Oregon’s Road To The Sweet 16

Somehow someway the Oregon Ducks were given a twelve seed in this year’s NCAA tournament. Finishing in third place in the PAC-12 doesn’t warrant a top seed necessarily, but when you look at the Ducks overall resume, it’s truly stunning to see how they got shafted on selection Sunday. Fortunately for Oregon, a bad seed hasn’t slowed them down one bit. The Ducks knocked off...

Oregon Ducks Sweet Sixteen Preview: Showdown With Number One

  Think the NCAA selection committee has learned its lesson? The Oregon Ducks, woefully under seeded coming into the tournament, handled Oklahoma State in the round of 64 before pummeling fourth-seeded Saint Louis on Saturday, 74-57. Now they have a date with the number one overall seed in the tournament, Big East champion Louisville. In what has been a wild tournament so...

Oregon-Saint Louis Preview

One is a mid-major that has been carrying on the memory of its late coach. The other is a Pac-12 tournament champion that feels slighted by its No. 12 seed. When fourth-seeded Saint Louis and Oregon meet Saturday for a spot in the round of 16, neither side will be lacking motivation. The Billikens (28-6) already have eclipsed the 1988-89 team's school record of 27 victories...

OSU knocked out of tourney by Oregon

Five things I hated about last night’s Huskies loss

Win slipped through their paws Headline: Ducks turn the tables from costly Husky turnovers, in OT loss. It was a hard-fought game between the Washington Huskies and the Oregon Ducks from the start. Then regulation ended, and the rest of the game got away from the Huskies.  Yes they’ve played better basketball than ever before, but they couldn’t capitalize with Oregon’s defense...

Oregon 80, Washington 77

As Arsalan Kazemi sat on the bench in the second half after struggling, he waited for a second chance, plotting how he'd play better if it came. When the chance did come, his plan played out perfectly. Shaking off a shaky first half, Kazemi scored 11 of his 14 points in overtime, helping Oregon outlast Washington 80-77 on Thursday night in the quarterfinals of the Pac-12 tournament...
