  • Collegiate Baseball newspaper released their 2014 Freshmen All-American team yesterday, and a pair of Ducks made the cut. Matt Krook and A.J. Balta were both named to the team for their performance in the 2014 season. Balta, who started 56 games for Oregon this year, hit .242 with three home runs, 29 RBI and seven stolen bases. Krook, who missed the last two months of the season due to elbow surgery, went 2-1 with a 1.79 ERA.
  • The NBA Draft is three weeks away, and Mike Moser is working his tail off to get his shot. Moser is planning on visiting 18 to 20 teams before the draft and has already worked out in Dallas, Utah, Sacramento, Los Angeles (for both the Lakers and Clippers), Milwaukee and Minnesota. As a senior with the Ducks, Moser averaged 13.2 points and 7.7 rebounds per game after transferring from UNLV. Moser is ranked as the No. 37 senior by draftexpress.com.
  • The Oregon acrobatics & tumbling team has lost just three meets in the past five years, but yesterday they suffered undoubtedly their biggest loss ever when it was announced that head coach Felicia Mulkey was resigning and taking the head coaching job at Baylor. In an interview, Mulkey said a big reason why she took the job was to be closer to her family in Georgia. In Mulkey's five seasons with the Oregon, the Ducks went 43-3, winning four straight national championships.
  • Yesterday, USA Today released data of athletic department revenues in 2013, with Oregon coming in at ninth in the country. The Ducks had a total revenue of $115,241,070 with total expenses at $94,972,708. Topping the list was Texas with $165,691,486 in total revenue and $146,807,585 in total expenses. Oregon saw a revenue increase of $21 million from the previous year. It was the third consecutive year Oregon's total revenue has increased from the previous year. You can see the full list of schools here.
  • The MLB Draft begins today and there are a few Ducks to keep an eye on. Tyson Alger over at the Oregonian compiled a nice little list of who to watch for in this year's draft. Jake Reed looks to have the best odds as Alger expects reed to go somewhere in the top 10 rounds. Other Ducks who are draft eligible, including Shaun Chase, Scott Heineman and Tommy Thorpe could be picked up in the middle rounds. Last year, six Ducks were selected in the draft, the second most in school history.
