NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson talks about Oregon’s terrible loss to the Colorado Buffaloes. Though they will still have a shot to win the Pac-12 on Saturday against Utah, Oregon’s more than humiliating loss to the Colorado Buffaloes on Thursday meant that they could very well end up sharing the Pac-12 Title with UCLA. Oregon would still claim the No. 1 seed in the Pac-12 Tournament with a win on Saturday.

Utes vs. Ducks

NWSB Editor and Insider Chris Anderson recaps Oregon’s hot start to their 2012/2013 college basketball season. Head Coach Dana Altman has changed the way people perceive a program that was, at least for the past few years, one of the more mediocre programs in the Pac-10/12. With just one game left until Pac-12 play officially begins with a contest against bitter-rival Oregon State, the Ducks must look back on the first portion of their season in order to truly evolve into a team that can find itself towards the top of the conference come seasons end.
