The University of Oregon men’s basketball team (15-5, 6-2) will host in-state rival Oregon State (13-7, 3-5) as part of The Civil War presented by Pacific Source & your Northwest Ford Dealers. Tip-time for the Ducks-Beavers contest is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. (PT) at Matthew Knight Arena in Eugene.
The Ducks have won their last four games including last week’s home sweep of the Los Angeles schools. Two weeks ago, Oregon completed its first road sweep of the Arizona schools since the 2006-07 season. Oregon State enters the game on a roll having also swept UCLA and USC last week.
The Beavers lead the all-time series over the Ducks, 183-152, although the edge goes to Oregon over the last 17 years. Dating back to the 1994-95 season, UO has won 29 of the last 36 meetings. Oregon won both games against Oregon State last season marking the first sweep of the Beavers since the 2007-08 season.
