Dana Altman was critical of the Ducks play in a home win over the Beavers. The post game message was that the win, and some elements about it were positive, but that there is a lot of work remaining for the Ducks to make the NCAA tournament.

The Duck women swept their weekend games. The Ducks had to overcome a first quarter deficit at Colorado before pulling away. The Ducks were lead in their second game at Utah by 21 points from Maite Cazorla and yet another triple double from Sabrina Ionescu.

Track and field had a productive weekend in New York. Top men’s performances included an NCAA leading performance in the DMR and 4 individuals running under 4:00 for the mile, including a 3:57.9 that is good for seventh in UO history. Top women’s performances included a new school record in the triple jump and a new meet record in the 4x400 relay.

Men’s tennis dropped the opening round of the ITA Kick-Off tournament to #12 Stanford. The Ducks fell behind 4-0, allowing Stanford to clinch the match before the remaining three singles matches had been finished.

Women’s Tennis also lost their first round of the ITA Kick-Off tournament. The women lost to #6 ranked Pepperdine, also falling behind 4-0 and allowing the match to be completed prior to the final three singles matches.
