Ducks on the Verge of Becoming a Basketball Powerhouse?

Darren Perkins Editorials

247Sports five-star point guard Dior Johnson committed to the Ducks on Tuesday. He is the No. 3 prospect and No. 1 point guard for the class of 2022. He is considered a sure-fire, one-and-done future NBA lottery pick. Think of what Jalen Suggs did for Gonzaga this past season, and Johnson might be even better.

Over the past decade, head coach Dana Altman has transformed Oregon basketball from a mediocre to a very good program that is a perennial Sweet-16 team. Now, with Oregon’s recent influx of talent via recruiting and the transfer portal, the Ducks are on the cusp of turning into an “it” program where anything less than the Final Four could be considered a disappointment.

The Ducks did it in football and now they are doing it in basketball. To that, I just have one thing to say: Hell yeah!

How do you feel about our Ducks’ basketball program performance in the past few seasons? How much does coach Altman have to do with the team’s success as of late?

New 2024 FishDuck Publishing Schedule….

During the off-season the publishing schedule will consist of articles on Mondays and Tuesdays. Do keep checking as new articles could be published during the week when a writer has something to say.

In mid-August of 2024, we will go back to the seven-days-a-week of articles during the football season as we did in the football season of 2023.

The Our Beloved Ducks Forum (OBD) is where we we discuss the article above and many more topics, as it is so much easier in a message board format over there.  At the free OBD forum we will be posting Oregon Sports article links, the daily Press Releases from the Athletic Department and the news coming out every day.

Our 33 rules at the free OBD Forum can be summarized to this: 1) be polite and respectful, 2) do not tell anyone what to think, feel or write, and 3) no reference of any kind to politics. Easy-peasy!

OBD Forum members….we got your back.  No Trolls Allowed!
