Oregon Ducks Men's Basketball Defeats Concordia Cavaliers, 102-75

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-US PRESSWIRE

The University of Oregon Ducks defeated the Concordia University Cavaliers at Matthew Knight Arena on Monday 102-75 in their opening exhibition game. Dana Altman's Ducks looked like a young team at times but with flashes of brilliance that should make fans excited for the growth potential throughout the 2012-13 season.

If you were wondering how Dominic Artis would fare in his first season, he started this game on fire, hitting 4-4 from the field with 2 of those from beyond the arc for 10 points in the first half. He also had a great drive and dish to Tony Woods for an uncontested dunk and did a good job running the offensive sets from the point.

In the second half, the Dominic Artis show continued as he continued to rain down shots from all over the court. He ended up shooting 7-11 from the field including 3 shots from beyond the arc. The Ducks had shooters all over the floor tonight with 7 players in double figures. Freshman guard Damyean Dotson also contributed a double-double with 11 points and 10 rebounds. EJ Singler did not play in the contest to get some extra rest for his knees.

The Oregon front line will have some amazing height with Tony Woods and Waverly Austin on the court at the same time. Although it's hard to take too much from this type of game, that tandem will give some front courts in the Pac-12 some problems, especially with both of them scoring in double figures as they did tonight.

The Ducks were able to use their superior athleticism to take control of this game but I'd like to see a bit more pressure on defense and take teams like Concordia out of it without letting it get to a scrappy, up and down contest.
