Let’s talk basketball. Elijah Brown and Payton Pritchard represented the ducks at the media days, after some delays in arriving safely due to fires. The team this year is all new, as we know, but has a lot of exciting pieces.

Women’s basketball enters the season with increased expectations for the first time recently. The Ducks made a surprising elite 8 run last year with a young squad that returns their top 7 scorers.

Coach Taggart talks about his time at Stanford and his friendship with David Shaw in anticipation of this Saturday’s game against the Cardinal. The opposing coaches remain friends and Shaw has been a bit of a mentor to Taggart. This might explain the constant running it up the middle.

Yesterdays practice report recaps the last game speed effort prior to this weekends game. Included are a continued focus on reducing penalties as well as continued development of the offense sans Herbert.
