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?

Darren Perkins is a sales professional and 1997 Oregon graduate. After finishing school, he escaped the rain and moved to sunny Southern California where he studied screenwriting for two years at UCLA. Darren grew up in Eugene and in 1980, at the tender age of five, he attended his first Oregon football game. His lasting memory from that experience was an enthusiastic Don Essig announcing to the crowd: “Reggie Ogburn, completes a pass to… Reggie Ogburn.” Captivated by such a thrilling play, Darren’s been hooked on Oregon football ever since. Currently living in Spokane, Darren enjoys flaunting his yellow and green superiority complex over friends and family in Cougar country.
