The Ducks national title run came up 8 games short, but it was fun while it lasted.
- The Ducks fell to the Huskies 69-51, but the final score isn't all that indicative of how the game went. The Ducks looked tired the entire game, but still had the game within 4 with ten minutes to go in the game. But they just didn't have the energy or shooting ability to keep up with the Huskies. The Ducks shot 7/22 from three point range on the game, and only 40% from the field. It wasn't an example of great defense by Washington though. Oregon just missed open shot after open shot. The Ducks had their opportunities. At one point, Washington did not score for a 5 minute stretch, but the worn out Duck legs just couldn't get the ball into the basket. We knew that the Ducks would have to play their best to get to the finals, and they just didn't have it last night. But despite the fatigue, they never gave up. They played hard on both ends of the floor, and they really had no business being in the game as long as they did. But it was a great year.
- Oregon baseball has gotten off to a rocky start, but they have now won two in a row and are back at .500. The 4-2 victory last night over BYU was led by Madison Boer, who has been on fire this season. Boer got his 4th straight quality start, though he gave up one earned run, which raised his ERA to 0.58. Boer work with a one-run lead most of the game, but gave up one in the 8th and had to leave the game tied. But the Ducks took advantage of BYU miscues to score 3 in the 8th and secure the W.
