Basketball suffered another at least short term injury blow when freshman point guard Will Richardson hurt his foot in practice. Richardson was a 4* recruit and was anticipated to be the primary backup for Payton Pritchard. Coach Altman says it’s nothing serious but he’ll be out for a while.
Basketball will open their season with an exhibition against Western Oregon University tonight. WOU was a strong 31-2 last year and advanced to the NCAA D II tournament. The game will be televised on the Pac 12 network at 7:00 PM.
Volleyball has a big weekend as they host the LA schools. UCLA is currently ranked #15 nationally while USC is currently ranked #22. Oregon is in a three way tie for second place in the Pac 12 with USC and Washington State. The LA schools will be looking for revenge after Oregon swept their trip to LA earlier this year.
