UC Irvine Anteaters at Oregon Ducks

8:00 p.m. PT - Matthew Knight Arena - Eugene, OR.

TV : Pac-12 Networks

The injury bug continues to bite the Ducks. Dwayne Benjamin hurt his knee against Boise State over the weekend and will be questionable against UC Irvine. Tyler Dorsey is recovering from a knee injury he suffered against UNLV and is a game-time decision. Dana Altman said that Casey Benson will play. Jordan Bell will play in his second game of the year. The sophomore missed the first eight games this season because of a broken foot. Bell scored three points and recorded seven rebounds in his first game back.

UC Irvine is familiar with Matthew Knight Arena. The Anteaters have played in Eugene three years in a row, losing all three games. Mamadou Ndiaye will lead UC Irvine. The 7'6" center was named the Big West Conference Player of the Week. Duck fans might remember the classic picture of Johnathan Loyd guarding Ndaiye.
