Your morning helping of Oregon Ducks news.
Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not.
Onto the Quack:
- Oregon baseball notched the two-game sweep over Cal State-Northridge, with Jeff Gold allowing only one unearned run over seven innings. Gold lowered his ERA to 0.51 on the season, as the Ducks improve to 8-3.
- A rare bit of good news for the Oregon women's basketball team, as freshman forward Jillian Alleyne was named to the Pac-12 all-freshmen team. Freshman pitcher Cheridan Hawkins was named the Pac-12 softball pitcher of the week.
- Judges have again ruled that competitive cheer isn't a sport for Title IX purposes. UO officials are trying to determine how this may affect Oregon's program.
- Injury updates for Oregon basketball. Dominic Artis hopes to play about 20 minutes per game in the Pac-12 tourney, while Damyean Dotson should be ok to play on Thursday.
- The Oregonian public colleges are in some of the most dire financial straits in the nation. It really is too bad that the inept Board of Higher Education, who has shown a complete inability to deal with the crisis, fired the one guy who was actually trying to do something about it.
- The Ducks are a No. 6 seed in Kansas City in the newest bracketology.
- Larry Scott gives an interview that is well worth a listen on KJR up in Seattle.
- Aaron Brooks is back with the Houston Rockets after being released by the Seacramento KingSonics.
