  3. Oregon is proving the selection committee very, very wrong

    Mar 23, 2013, 9:33 PM EDT


    In a year that has been defined early on in part by the success of 12-seeds, Oregon stands out. Oregon stands out because, well, it should not have been a 12-seed. The Ducks came into this NCAA tournament after winning the Pac-12 tournament and finishing just one game out of first place in the regular…

  10. How likely is it that Anthony Bennett chooses Kentucky? Ask Nerlens Noel

    Apr 18, 2012, 10:44 AM EDT


    Kentucky made it’s biggest splash on the recruiting trail last week when center Nerlens Noel signed on the dotted line but, according to Jason Jordan of ESPN, it may be Noel, himself, who helps to solidify the rest of the 2012 Wildcat class. According to Jordan, Noel is confident that there is a little “over…

    Apr 8, 2012, 10:19 AM EDT


    Nerlens Noel and Shabazz Muhammad may be the two most talked-about names left on the college basketball recruiting board, but Anthony Bennett of Findlay Prep (Nev.) shouldn’t be far behind.

  12. Oregon's bold statement also a fab home-court edge

    Nov 7, 2010, 7:26 PM EDT

    University of Oregon Nothing’s ordinary about Oregon’s new college basketball venue. Matthew Knight Arena is expensive (about $200 million),tricked out (the state-of-the-art scoreboard is unlike anything most NBA teams have) and idiosyncratic in its design. I mean, did you see that floor? The school unveiled Pat Kilkenny floor on Friday, which is unlike any other…

  13. UCLA may endure another sub-par season

    Oct 12, 2010, 11:51 AM EDT

    Washington is again the cream of the Pac-10 crop. That’s an easy call. The rest of the league? That’s a crapshoot. Most preseason prognostications are slotting Arizona, UCLA and Arizona State in various orders of 2, 3 and 4, while Oregon – thanks to its massive player exodus – is usually dead last. Call it…

Now scrimmaging will be a little easier. The Ducks are expected to…

  15. Did Oregon players get improper benefits?

    Sep 15, 2010, 11:14 AM EDT

    Perhaps Michael Dunigan’s signing with Israeli basketball team Hapoel Migdal Jerusalem shouldn’t be a surprise anymore. He might not have even been eligible to play for Oregon this season. The Eugene Register-Guard reported late Tuesday that the former Oregon center is one of several “former members” who may have received improper benefits. What entailed the…

  16. Athlon rues Dunigan's deal

    Sep 12, 2010, 6:42 PM EDT

    Bad news for Oregon fans hoping center Michael Dunigan might change his mind about playing in Israel next season. That deal is done.

  17. Oregon's got one massive HD screen

    Aug 31, 2010, 11:13 PM EDT

    Anyone watching a game at Matt Court – the multimillion dollar Oregon basketball upgrade to Mac Court – shouldn’t worry about missing the action. A three-story tall high-definition screen will do that. That’s right, three stories. It’s also 36 feet wide and weighs more than 22 tons. According to Jon Hunt from the Oregonian, the…

  18. Injuries derail Oregon's trip to Italy

    Aug 23, 2010, 5:25 PM EDT

    Oregon was supposed to be on a plane today, flying to Italy for an 11-day, four-game trip. Instead, Dana Altman’s team will be staying home, nursing injuries. If that’s not a summer bummer, I don’t know what is. But the Ducks’ new coach is being realistic. They finished practice last week with just six healthy…

  19. Altman's Oregon deal still not finalized

    Jul 10, 2010, 7:57 PM EDT

    One might think that after Oregon’s contractual mess with ex-athletic director Mike Bellotti, the school would finalize all its big deals as soon as possible. Or maybe that’s just me. New men’s basketball coach Dana Altman, months after coming to Eugene, still hasn’t completed his seven-year deal worth $1.8 million annually, according to the Oregonian.…

  20. What Pac-10 divisions might look like

    Jun 16, 2010, 11:34 PM EDT

      As two new 12-team conferences take shape (Utah to the Pac-10 was official Wednesday), the question of the day is: What will the divisions look like? (The real question is what’s going to happen to the names. Big Ten, Pac-10 and Big 12 better be doing some swapping right about now. But I digress.)…
