Pac-12 Leading Scorers Face Off When Oregon Faces Stanford Sunday


The Oregon Ducks coming off a road win at Cal, their first in twelve attempts will again be on the road for their final two games of the regular season. Dana Altman will take his team to Stanford to take on the Cardinal for their only matchup this season. The road has not been kind to Oregon this season, but a strong finish may be enough to get them into the NCAA Tournament field.

Oregon was led by Senior Joseph Young on Wednesday night against the Bears. He had twenty-five points on the night in the win. The Ducks were held in check in the second half, especially in the final four minutes, but won the game thanks in part to key free throw shooting hitting ten of eleven from the charity stripe.

Young with 19.9 points per game will take on Stanford’s Chasson Randle who is second in the Pac-12 in scoring with 19.4 points per game. Since the win at Arizona State on January 30th Young is on a tear averaging twenty-four points per game and showing how he can lead this team when he is asked. Since losing at Arizona on January 28th, the team could have been left for dead, but they have rallied and won seven of their last eight games.

The game at Stanford also has Pac-12 Tournament implications. If Altman’s club can win one of their final two they will fall in the fourth seed position and end up with a first round bye in Las Vegas, which can prove to be pretty important in having an extra rest day. It will also ensure they do not see Arizona until the weekend most likely.
