Quack Fix: Jay-R Strowbridge powers the Ducks past the Beavs, Oregon baseball gets first win

Happy President's Day everyone. If you're stuck in the office, here's a bit of quack to get you through:

  • The Oregon basketball teams' hot streak continued over the weekend, as they beat the Beavers 82-63 on the strength of Jay-R Strowbridge's career high 26 points. Strowbridge was 6-8 from three point range and the Ducks were 13-26 from behind the arc to take the 19 point win. Strowbridge got the opportunities in the game, and put the beavers away with 3 straight threes, after they had closed the game to 9 points. Oregon started out slow, but down 8-7 six minutes into the game, they went on a 20-2 run and OSU never seriously threatened again. With the win, Oregon takes over 4th place (tied with USC) in the conference standings with Cal and Stanford coming to town this week in a huge series that could keep the Ducks in the upper half of the conference.
  • Unfortunately, the Oregon women weren't so successful, as their slide continues. The Ducks led by 20 at halftime but allowed the Beavs to come back and get a 61-59 victory.
  • It's been an uneven weekend for the Oregon baseball team as they start their season in Hawaii. The bullben blew games on Friday and Saturday to start the Ducks out on the wrong foot. Madison Boer didn't give them the chance to do the same yesterday, giving up only one hit in eight innings as the Ducks won 4-0. The final game of the series is tonight at 8:35.
  • The Oregonian caught up with George Horton and got his thoughts on the new NCAA bats and the Pac-10 race. Horton says that the new bats will lead to more competitive baseball games, and something that the Ducks welcome. He also thinks the Pac-10 will be very even this season, and doesn't expect to see any teams gain separation from the rest.
  • We passed a significant date in the football calendar, as we're now closer to spring football than we are the BCS Championship Game. And this Duck team shows no sign of slowing down after their achievements last season. They got there by hard work, and that's continuing. Darron Thomas has been leading daily, early morning workouts. And while the Ducks lose some key experience, especially in the defensive front 7, there are a lot of young players, like Michael Clay, who learned over the past couple years what it takes to be successful. It's been a bit quiet on the football front lately, but this article provides some great reasons for optimism for the coming season. While we'll have on-field questions to be answered, the team is mentally where it should be.
