  • Oregon basketball now has an available scholarship spot for next season after Ben Carter announced he will be transferring, most likely to UNLV. Carter averaged 2.5 points and 2.4 rebounds per game with the Ducks, playing 12.7 minutes per game this past year. Carter's father was quoted saying Oregon "never used him right" by trying to make him a center instead of letting him play power forward, and that he doesn't believe in the system that head coach Dana Altman runs.
  • The Oregon baseball team completed a three-game sweep of UC Riverside on Sunday with a 6-5 win over the Highlanders at PK Park. The Ducks came back from a 3-1 deficit to defeat the Highlanders thanks to a three-run seventh inning, which included a two-RBI double from Kyle Garlick. The Ducks host San Diego today at 1 p.m. at PK Park.
  • The Oregon softball team clinched a series win over the Oregon State Beavers with a 10-2 win on Sunday. After a solo home run from the Beavers in the first inning, the Ducks bats came to life in the third inning as Oregon scored seven runs to take control of the game. The Ducks would add three more runs in the sixth inning to force the run rule. Oregon goes for the sweep over the Beavers today at 3 p.m. in Corvallis.
  • Mark Helfrich seems to be going all Chip Kelly on us with the news on Bralon Addison and his torn ACL. We're still waiting on official word from Helfrich, but all signs point to the Ducks having to implement Chip's "Next Man Up" policy at the position. CSNNW's Aaron Fentress takes an in-depth look at Oregon's next options at the wide receiver position.
