There is plenty going on this Super Bowl weekend with Oregon Athletics. Of course, the Oregon Men’s Basketball team looks to bounce back from a loss on Wednesday at Stanford. The Oregon Women’s Basketball team will have a go at entertaining two Top 10 teams, and you can help Oregon get on the next cover for EA Sports NCAA 13 Video game.
Dana Altman looks to get his team back on track and EJ Singler looks to get back to scoring some points in the first half after being held scoreless on Thursday at Stanford. The 10th Ranked Ducks continue their road trip and travel to Cal Saturday at 1:30 (ROOT Sports). I wish, sometimes that the Men’s Basketball Schedule for the Pac 12 was better this year. The conference seems down with only two ranked teams (Arizona, and Oregon) ranked in the Top 25. This, however is opposite for Women’s Basketball.
This week the poll has several Pac 12 Opponents for the Oregon Women’s Basketball in the Top 10.
The Oregon Women(3-17, 1-7 Pac 12) is having a rough season, similar to last year with injuries. There is a bright spot in several players with confidence and playing well on the court this season. Last weekend the Ducks scored their first Pac 12 victory on the season against Washington State. Oregon’s Ariel Thomas had 20 points and 11 rebounds. After losing to Stanford on Friday night the Oregon women look to get a win against Cal on Sunday at 1pm. The game will be on the Pac 12 Live Stream available online at goducks.com
Super Bowl Sunday is almost upon us and features several Ducks including LaMichael James from the San Francisco 49ers and Haloti Ngata from the Baltimore Ravens. Kickoff is 3:30 Pacific time on CBS.
