New, 98 comments

Who: Stanford Cardinal (15-9, 4-9 Pac-10) vs. Oregon Ducks (6-20, 0-14 Pac-10)
Time: 5pm PST
Location: Mac Court, Eugene, OR
Media: OSN, Comcast Sports Northwest, Radio

The Cardinal come to Eugene in a battle of teams at the bottom of the conference. Stanford blew Oregon out in Palo Alto and are looking to do the same at Mac Court. Stanford has gone 2-6 since the last meeting with Oregon. The Ducks should be getting LeKendrick Longmire and Drew Wiley back from injury and they will need all the help they can get. More importantly, through all the adversity, are we starting to see a leader emerge on the team or frustration boiling over? Here are some quotes from TP...

"I felt we were buying into it in practice, but come game time, it just wasn’t there," Porter said. "The first five minutes of the second half, there it goes again. This was the most frustrating because I saw it, it clicked to me."

The solution, he said, is that Oregon players have "just got to listen and stay more focused and be more alert out on the court.

"It’s the same old stuff, it’s been the same stuff for however many games we’ve played."
