Lots of quack out there this morning -- enjoy!
- The Ducks held on to beat Duquesne 77-75 last night. Garrett Sim led the way with 20 points and Joevan Catron notched a double double with 14 points and 11 rebounds. Rob Moseley has a piece on Catron extending his Oregon career for at least one more game.
- The Ducks will take on Boise State in the CBI semifinals on Wednesday at Matthew Knight Arena. The other semifinal game matches up Creighton and Central Florida, which means we could see an Oregon - Creighton matchup in the finals.
- In continuing his series of positional spring previews, Rob Moseley takes a look at the offensive line. Despite the fact that the line lost a lot of experience and leadership, Moseley argues that the group that lines up in Dallas in September is still significantly more experienced than the group that started in Boise State in 2009.
- It looks like John Hunt is also offering his own positional previews and, just like Moseley, he started with the quarterbacks.
- Ted Miller completed his list of the top 25 players from last season on Friday with Andrew Luck taking the top spot. On Monday, Miller offered a few thoughts on his list. Today, Miller runs through 19 players who just missed out making the top 25, including a couple of Ducks.
- Freshman Aaron Jones was named Pac-10 Player of the Week after his performance (5-10, 2 RBI, 4 runs) helped the Ducks to win three straight against San Diego.
- Finally, Oregon State has hired a new running backs coach -- former Oregon defensive graduate assistant Chris Brasfield. It looks like Brasfield's first job will be trying to replace Jacquizz Rodgers. Paul Buker also has a story on the hire.
