The mild celebration by the Ducks after winning in Westwood was not planned, nor could it be contained, as Oregon’s 76-68 victory over UCLA last night at Pauley Pavilion clinched at least a share of the Pac-12 regular season title for the Ducks. The video from the Pac-12 below has highlights (many of them!) from this hard-fought game. Oregon really pulled this one out by relying on effort and mental toughness and over the final four minutes against a feisty Bruin squad.
So many players have had special nights over the course of this magical basketball season, and this game was guard Tyler Dorsey’s turn in the spotlight. The freshman’s homecoming in Los Angeles was brightened by his 20 points, nine rebounds, and accuracy from the three-point line.
The highlight video features some spectacular dunks by Elgin Cook, (which is almost becoming routine) an incredible touch-pass from Dillon Brooks to Chris Boucher for a fast-break dunk, as well as some superb passing against the Bruin zone defense that yielded a string of open shots. The unselfish team display of precision passing, tipping loose balls to each other, and making all the “little plays” was the difference that pushed our beloved Ducks to victory.
Keep an eye on FishDuck.com as we will have the Video of the Day (“VOD”) for other sports, as well as historical video highlights and clips from favorite football games of the past. We will be sprinkling in these videos throughout the week until July 1st, at which time we will then be back with a full writing schedule and a VOD most days of the week. Great times ahead at FishDuck.com!
