Oregon Vs Washington Preview


The Oregon Ducks take on the Washington Huskies tonight in Matthew Knight Arena.  Washington is looking for a comeback win after losing just up the road in Corvallis against the Beavers.

This marks the 294th meeting between the teams, with Washington leading the series 187-105.  With a win tonight, Oregon will continue it’s move toward the nation’s top 10 teams.  Much like the Ducks, the Huskies have four players scoring in double digits, with C.J. Wilcox leading the way a 19.3 points per game; shutting hime down will be a key for the Ducks to pull out a win. Oregon is 25th in the nation in rebounds per game, compared with Washington, sitting at 116th.  If the Duck can dominate the boards this game should be another big win at home.

Breakout freshman Damyean Dotson continues to lead the team –which features five double-digit Oregon scorers — at 11.9 points per game.

The win against Washington State helped to move two Ducks significantly up in the Oregon record books.  With Tony Woods’ three blocks against the Cougs, he is now tied for 3rd on Oregon’s all time blocks list.  Woods now has 75 career blocks in just 2 years with the Ducks.  E.J. Singler’s 19 points, 2 steals, and 1 block helped move him up on each list.  He is now 16th on Oregon’s all time scoring list, 11th on the all time steals list, and 10th in all time career blocks.  Those are outstanding career statistics.

To watch the game, tune in to the Pac-12 Network at 4pm PST.
