Women’s basketball faces a potential “separation weekend” per head coach Kelly Graves. The Ducks host #25 Cal and #24 Stanford with an opportunity to create additional space for the Ducks in their quest for a conference title.

Softball season begins on February 8th, with the Duck’s competing in the Kajikawa Classic in Tempe, Arizona. OLOTC open the season with #3 national rankings in two major polls.

Baseball season is nearing as well, GoDucks provides a preview of the coming season. The Ducks enter the season with hopes of a deeper and stronger pitching staff, despite losing their number 1 pitcher, David Peterson, to the first round of the MLB draft.

Tyson Alger compares the Oregon freshman basketball players to stars of the past. The statistical comparisons of Troy Brown to Dillon Brooks and Kenny Wooten to Jordon Bell are striking. He’s also not sure whether we can access the talent, or assess it.
