MBB Gameday Open Thread: Oregon Ducks @ California Golden Bears

Who: Oregon Ducks (16-15, 8-11 Pac-10) vs. California Golden Bears (21-9, 13-5 Pac-10)
Time: 2:40 PM PST
Location: Staples Center, Los Angeles, CA
Media: FSN, Radio, Live Stats

Again, Ernie Kent possible coaching the last game of his tenure at Oregon, Tajuan Porter chasing the Pac-10 career three-point record (needs 1 to tie, 2 to break). 3:13 to go in UCLA-Arizona, with the Bruins up five. Keys today:

  • Rebounding - the Ducks were outhustled and outworked on the boards last night. If that happens again, this game won't be close.
  • Tajuan's shooting - Sure he had 32 last night, but on 28 shots. Once he got one away from the record, he went cold. Is the record in his head?
    Containing the weapons of the Golden Bears - PC, Randle, and Theo can all score. Our best shot is letting one guy get his points (probably Randle) and containing the other two.
  • Low post scoring - If Dunigan can get it going, he and JJ can do some damage against Cal's bigs.

I'll be around for commentary. Go Ducks!
