The basketball season officially ended last night with Louisville's win over Michigan. Which sport will you be following most closely this spring? Baseball, softball, track & field, spring football or something else?
- Rob Moseley's feature today is on redshirt sophomore Tyson Coleman who has been getting a lot of time at the inside linebacker spots so far this spring as the Ducks look to replace both starters. Coleman had played in all 13 games last season behind Boseko Lokombo in one of the outside spots.
- Aaron Fentress also has a writeup on former Lake Oswego prep Coleman, whose focus on the middle linebacker spots comes with both Derrick Malone and Rodney Hardrick hampered by injuries this spring.
- Moseley blogs that Helfrich was again pleased with yesterday's practice. The team will practice again today, with situational scrimmage situations with full contact blocking and tackling.
- Ken Goe writes that Jordan Hasay is committed to the 10K despite Saturday's appearance in the 1500. Hasay competed in the 10K for the first time at the end of March and finished less than three seconds off the school record.
- The 16th-ranked baseball team visits Corvallis today where the Ducks are only 1-9 and since 2009. Sophomore Jordan Spencer will take the hill for Oregon for his first start of the season.
- Finally, a couple of Ducks earned weekly conference honors. First, Jessica Moore earned conference pitcher of the week after helping the Ducks to a 5-1 record last week against #4 Cal and Utah. In women's lacrosse, Carly O'Connell was named the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation's rookie of the week for the second time this season after scoring four goals and notching three assists against USC this past weekend.
