Oregon leads the nation in Scoring and comes in at No. 7 in Field Goal Efficiency – but where’s the love? Granted, some of the other stats rankings aren’t as special: assists, No. 24 (which is certainly solid but not elite) and rebounding, No. 155.
On the surface, rebounding is by far their biggest weakness, but when the ball goes through the hoop the first time, there’s not much chance for an offensive rebound, is there. Still, these latter figures are the reason this year’s flock of Ducks isn’t exactly feeling the love in the national rankings. Despite the seemingly tepid response from the nation, however, Oregon finds itself undefeated and has knocked down some intriguing wins.
