On Wednesday Night the Oregon Basketball team did something they have not done for the last two regular seasons. They broke the 100 point threshold for the first time since a win vs Iowa in the NIT two years ago. The Ducks coming off a victory in South Korea in the Armed Forces Classic vs Georgetown exploded offensively. Several newcomers for Oregon led the charge.
Joseph Young led with 36 points as the Ducks shot over 65 percent from the field on the night. He was 15-16 from the Free Throw line and has only missed one point from the line this season. Mike Moser added 26 for the Ducks, he had 15 at the half. Dana Altman’s team is Ranked #18 and now 2-0 on the young season. Several records also fell on the night.
Young’s 36 was a career high, as well as a high in points for Matthew Knight Arena. Offensively Oregon seems to be firing on all cylinders, but the question now is the Defense. They did not need to necessarily play that type of game on Wednesday night.
“A very good offensive performance saved us. Defensively and on the boards we’ve got a long way to go.”
