Oregon Ducks vs. SW Oklahoma State Bulldogs
7:00 PT :: Matthew Knight Arena
Streaming :: Pac-12 Network Livestream
The Oregon Ducks take the court for their second and last exhibition game, looking to build on the positive impressions left during the first appearance. In that victory, the freshmen really impressed, with Dominic Artis netting 17 points, Willie Moore with 15, and Damyean Dotson notching a double-double.
SW Oklahoma State, a Division II school, was picked to finish second in the Great American Conference, and should provide a step up in competition from NAIA Concordia. 6'6" forward Thomas Davis averaged 13.5 points per game last year, and guard Marin Zelalija was also a double digit scorer. This isn't a huge team, as its made up of a bunch of 6'6"-6'7" swing men, though they have one big in 6'10" Ante Bozic.
For Oregon, the Ducks need to build off the first performance. We need to see if the freshmen can be consistent from game to game. We also get another chance to look at the giant frontcourt of Waverly Austin and Tony Woods, and see if the two can play together successfully against a smaller lineup. Finally, this game should also see the integration of E.J. Singler into the lineup, and I'm interested to see if either he or Carlos Emory play shooting guard when they are on the floor at the same time.
This is your open thread to discuss all the action. GO DUCKS!
