Oregon vs. Colorado Recap: Ducks Lay A Giant Ostrich Egg, Get Run Out Of Boulder

Steve Dykes

Awful. Just awful.

This game was completely unacceptable.

With the Ducks playing their biggest game since 2008, with a chance to clinch the league title, they laid an absolute egg, getting clobbered by the Buffaloes, 71-54.

Oregon looked woefully unprepared to play a basketball game. They shot in the low 20% range for the first half, and shot only 36% for the game. To top that off, they also shot 16% from three and 41% from the line. Furthermore, despite the fact that Colorado was missing Andre Robertson, the nation's leading rebounder, the Buffaloes outrebounded the Ducks, 35-31. Every Oregon regular turned in a dreadful performance, and only Ben Carter, getting some run in garbage time, had a nice game with 10 points, six rebounds, and three steals.

As bad as this game was, the Ducks can still clinch the Pac-12 title with a win at Utah on Saturday. But their performance against Colorado, combined with the fact that Utah has been playing well at home (and blitzed Oregon State on Thursday night) doesn't exactly inspire confidence.

Pathetic effort all around, and right from the opening tip. Poor starts have become a hallmark for this Oregon team, but you can't overcome them against a Colorado like you can against an OSU or WSU.

The goal is still within reach, but its going to take an effort far superior to the anemic effort we saw tonight.
