The Ducks held off the battling Beavers in Sunday’s Civil War game, but not necessarily because of the starting lineup.  Seeing the double-digit scoring figures by four of the five starters, people tend to focus all praise towards the fab five, but what about the “benchwarmers?” Bench players are an important aspect of the game.  They serve as encouragers and they’re …

Many viewers and even coaches like to talk about “age” as a big factor.  Competing at the high school level differs enormously compared to a Division I college level.  But for some, like Damyean Dotson, age is nothing but a number.  Only in his sophomore season at Oregon, Dotson has come off of an impressive freshmen year and is continuing that …

Suffering through this last week after the Ducks’ football loss to Stanford has been miserable.  There was a silver lining, however, in the form of Oregon’s newly-renovated basketball team.  There always seems to be at least one week each year where I can’t read anything about football without getting sick to my stomach.  This last week was just that.  With Oregon’s basketball …
