Women’s basketball has an early season test tonight against #20 Texas A&M. This game is the semi-final of the preseason NIT, the winner advances to play the winner of Michigan v Louisville. A&M is an experienced team and has qualified for 12 straight NCAA tournaments.

Fentress talks about the importance of this week as a chance for Oregon to get a big win in Taggart’s first year. A win over Arizona would give the Ducks their first victory over a >.500 team. Fentress also indicates that Herbert is expected back.

The NCAA cross country championships are this weekend and both the Oregon men and women are running. The women enter the meet ranked 6th while the men enter ranked 14th.

Volleyball will stay in the state of Oregon for the final 4 matches of the regular season. The ducks have home matches remaining against USC, Uw, and WSU, along with a road match against the Beavers.
