Morning Quack Fix: 3.25.09

Updateinroywetrust pointed out in the comments, it was Gonzaga's Demetri Goodson who hit the game winner against Western Kentucky, not Pargo. I guess there are advantages to watching the games on TV. (By

I spent last weekend in Portland and managed to overdose on college basketball. However, I was fortunate enough to witness some of opening weekend's best moments in person, including Jeremy Pargo's breakaway dunk against Akron, Orlando Mendez-Valdez's first-half offensive outburst against the Zags, and best of all, Pargo's Demetri Goodson's game-winning runner to help Gonzaga top the Hilltoppers. Needless to say, I'm going through some serious withdrawls this week, so let's get right to this morning's quack:

  • In case you missed dvieira's announcement yesterday, Oregon baseball head coach George Horton was handed a three-game suspension following his ejection during the fifth inning of the Ducks' game against Washington on Sunday. Horton's timing really couldn't have been any worse: His suspension will keep him out of the dugout for the opening game of this weekend's Civil War series at PGE Park in Portland. The Ducks also lost the first of the three games without Horton yesterday, falling 10-5 to Sacramento State. They'll host the Hornets at PK Park again this afternoon at 1:00 p.m.
  • Larry Scott, chairman and CEO of the Women's Tennis Association (WTA), will replace Tom Hansen as Pac-10 commissioner on July 1. After 26 years under Hansen, the Pac-10 might finally have a shot at improving bowl and TV affiliations. Except his replacement is the head of the WOMEN'S TENNIS ASSOCIATION! Doh!
  • Oregon finally has a player on ESPN's Ted Miller's list of the Pac-10's 30 best players. Miller lists Will Tukuafu at No. 18. Our own defensive line spring preview

As always, post anything you find in the comments.
