There isn't a ton of news out there today, but here's what I've got:
- I was really torn on Saturday night watching former Oregon star Aaron Brooks tear the Blazers apart. Having grown up in Oregon like so many other fellow Ducks, I've been a life-long Blazers fan and seeing them in the playoffs for the first time since 2003 is a blessing. But, obviously, I'm also a die-hard Oregon fan. Brandon Roy has challenged those loyalties as he's emerged as a perennial All-Star for the Blazers, but I think I've gotten over it. Brooks, on the other hand, is really starting to complicate matters. But if Saturday was the worst-case scenario for a Blazers/Ducks fan, then last night was the best case. Brooks put up another impressive performance for the Houston Rockets, but the Blazers still held on for the win, evening the series at one game a piece. Let's hope Brooks continues to light it up...as long as the Blazers win.
- The Oregon baseball team couldn't overcome UC Irvine's late rally yesterday, losing to the top-ranked Anteaters, 7-4. The Ducks have now dropped 10 of their last 11.
As always, post any links you find out there in the comments.
Oh, and GO BLAZERS!
