Oregon Basketball has added a home game to the 2020 non-conference slate against the San Francisco Dons who already have a top-five upset from last month in their pocket.
San Francisco has been added to the abbreviated non-conference slate for Oregon Basketball. The Ducks are currently 4-1 on the season and have shown some early chemistry among some new faces on the court. Eugene Omoruyi has shown that sitting out a season last year due to transfer rules can pay off early.
