Oregon Ducks Look To Rewrite History vs Cal


When it comes to travelling it has been a mixed bag for the Oregon Ducks this season. Wins at Illinois and Arizona State are the highlights of the season, but now Dana Altman has a tough task ahead of him. When the Ducks face Cal on Wednesday night and Stanford on Sunday the streak on their side is not the winning one.

The Oregon Ducks are 3-23 when facing Cal and Stanford on the road since 2001. There is one advantage this season. No players on the roster were a part of those losing teams. Oregon and Altman are 0-7 against the Golden Bears and will likely need a win on Wednesday to keep momentum going as they look to make the NCAA Tournament.

On Sunday the Oregon Ducks knocked off ninth ranked Utah to reach twenty wins on the season. Dillon Brooks led all scorers in the game with nineteen points and Joseph Young started slow, but hit key shots down the stretch to allow the Ducks to pull away just enough in the end for the win. The line entering the game on Wednesday is even and Altman and the Ducks will likely need two wins in the next three games for a chance at making the NCAA Tournament.
