Oregon Competed Against Washington, But It Wasn't Enough


You have to credit the Oregon Ducks for their effort in last night's 87-69 loss to the Washington Huskies.

That they were even in the game is a credit to coach Dana Altman because as the second half showed, UW is just the far superior team this year.

Washington 87, Oregon 69: Ducks Continue to Compete, but Losing Streak Hits Five - Addicted To Quack
...once the Ducks got the lead, it was as if a light bulb went off and UW stopped relying on perimeter jumpers, instead penetrating with Thomas and getting the ball into Bryan-Amaring. While Oregon was able to trade one point leads for about three minutes, Oregon finally went cold, going a four minute stretch without a bucket, and finishing under 40% shooting for the fifth consecutive game. Meanwhile, Washington clamped down defensively, and Ross and Thomas went bonkers from the field and not only put the game away, but made the score more lopsided than the game actually was.
