Just because the NCAA tournament has started doesn't mean all quack has come to an end.
- The Oregon baseball team is on the road against Washington this weekend to start Pac-12 play. The Ducks have outperformed all expectations so far, but the Ducks are keeping them low and just taking it one game at a time. Washington has been at the bottom of the conference the last couple years, but are 10-6 this season and won't be easy games. For more on the team, GoDucks.tv has an extended video interview with coach George Horton.
- Oregon held it's pro day yesterday and while 11 Ducks participated, Cliff Harris and his possible redemption story got a lot of attention. Also, he weighed in at 181, and claims to have gained 25 pounds. Seeing how small he was when he first came to campus, that's believable.
- Other notes from the day, LaMichael James improved on his 40 time, with a consensus of 4.41 seconds. David Paulson also improved on his 40 time. The Register Guard had videos with David Paulson and Cliff Harris. The Oregonian had one with LaMichael James.
- While the NCAA Tournament is getting all the basketball headlines, the Ducks have a game on Sunday night as they host Iowa. But Bob Clark looks ahead a bit and asks if fans would rather face Northwestern or Washington if the Ducks get past the 2nd round. He also has a few other links related to the Oregon-Iowa game and Pac-12 basketball.
- Speaking of the NIT, Josh from FishDuck looks back at a very memorable game in his Tales From The Pit series. The 2004 game between Oregon and Colorado at Mac Court was a classic, remembered for Luke Jackson scoring an unbelievable 29 straight to lead the Ducks to victory.
- Lastly, some track and field notes. Oregon held a media day on Wednesday in preparation for the Oregon Preview on Sunday as outdoor season begins. Also, the Kenyan men's 10,000-meter Olympic Trials will be held at Hayward Field in conjunction with the Prefontaine Classic.
