Rivalry; Weekend Basketball; Upcoming Schedules


The Oregon Ducks opportunity to repeat as Pac-12 champions was dashed by the Oregon State Beavers on Saturday.  The game was back and forth but the Beavers went flat early in the third and a controversial call placed the beavers in jeopardy.  Coach Smith on the team’s psyche.

“I did think we were down, I mean let’s face it the momentum and where it was…”

But the beavers fought back after being down by 21

“At the back of our mind though if we could get a score and get the thing back in our direction we had a chance.”

After being down by 21 in the third quarter the Beavers mounted a comeback outscoring the Ducks 28-3 for the 38-34 win.
