Incredible. That’s the only word that describes the 2014-15 Ducks’ basketball season. I’ve never seen a team projected to be one of the worst in its conference play at such a high level during league play, and then at an even higher level during the NCAA Tournament. The growth of this team has been remarkable, and the Ducks deserve to …

Can you believe it? The Oregon Ducks, the team that was projected to be one of the worst in the Pac-12 Conference this year, just played a game in the Big Dance. That alone is an accomplishment by itself! But, knowing Coach Dana Altman, we knew that just being there wasn’t enough for this hungry squad. The Ducks took on …

These Ducks Are Ready

What more can you say about our beloved Ducks basketball team? “Conquering adversity” should be its slogan. Through all the media bashing, questioning, and lack of confidence in this team from the entire state of Oregon, the Ducks persevered and created what we see before us today: a contending Division I basketball program. I can’t say I wasn’t one of those who …

The Oregon Ducks men’s basketball team has now won 20 games, which makes 2014-15 the fifth consecutive seasons of at least 20 wins. That has never happened in the 109 previous seasons of Oregon basketball. It’s astonishing to think about where the team was to start the season, and how quickly it has matured into a tournament-caliber squad. But despite their …

Heart Over Talent

Speechless. That’s the best word that describes how most of us feel about the Ducks’ success this season. Prior to the season beginning, Oregon had only four players on its roster, and they were all guys returning from the year before.  Two of them, Joseph Young and Elgin Cook, were legitimate threats, and the other two ( Jalil Abdul-Bassit and Theo Friedman) …

The Ducks have begun their conference play, and are off to a fantastic start. Oregon is now 2-1 in PAC-12 play, and will looking to continue their strong play against Washington State on Thursday.

While everyone is on break, the Ducks are working harder than ever to make sure that they’ll be ready for conference play coming up soon. Their most recent challenge was this past Saturday against the Delaware State Hornets. You would have thought that Oregon would take down this team easily after its 21-hour travel period across the country, but the …

Michael Chandler: Oregon’s Potential Savior

Dean Davis FishWrap, FishWrap Archive 1 Comment

The Oregon Ducks have started off strong this season with a 7-3 record. But records can be deceiving, especially at the beginning of a season when teams are playing lesser talent in non-conference play. Don’t get me wrong, the Ducks have solid, young talent to go up against the opponents they’ve been facing –and as such a big PAC-12 sports …

Coming into this season, Oregon had so many questions about its basketball team that not even the Riddler could have solved them. The only thing that we could do was wait it out and analyze each game as its own entity. Oregon has started this season off with a promising record of 4-2 with surprisingly a lot of good things …
