Oregon went into Colorado with an umblemished 13-0 record. They left with their first loss of the season. There were times when the game was close, but the Buffaloes pulled away in the end and took care of business on the free throw line making 84 percent of their shots. Askia Booker and Spencer Dinwiddle took care of business from the line hitting a combined 20 shots out of 23. Dana Altman’s team was led by Transfer Mike Moser who had 24 points, followed by Joseph Young and Damyean Dotson who had 16 points each.
Colorado Junior Askia Booker was the player of the game scoring 27 points along with 7 rebounds and 3 assists. His shooting percentage was at .500 for the game. Oregon has it’s 13 game winning streak snapped and will fall out of the Top 10 AP Poll tomorrow when it is released. I don’t expect they will fall too far though. 12-1 is still a phenomenal start and they now return home for two before heading to Corvallis for a Civil War matchup with Oregon State.
We didn’t deserve to win today. Giving up easy baskets, get beat on the boards, we didn’t deserve it.
Oregon Coach Dana Altman on the loss to Colorado
There is one bad thing with this game and that is the Ducks don’t see Colorado again for the regular season. There is no visit by the Buffaloes to Matthew Knight Arena. Depending on how the season goes they may meet again in the Pac 12 Tournament.
The Ducks play host this week to California(Thursday, 8pm, Fox Sports 1) and Stanford(Saturday, 2pm, Fox Sports 1).
