Matt Martz our Oregon beat blogger weighs in with what lies ahead for the Oregon Ducks basketball team and E.J. Singler in the month of January. With 12 games remaining in the regular season, the Oregon Duck’s (13-5, 4-2) need to make up some ground. The Ducks will host in-state rival Oregon State (11-7, 1-5) who they completed a two-game sweep against in 2010.
Oregon Hoops blogger Jason Green points out the obvious. March Madness is a slim possibility. The Oregon Ducks led by E.J. Singler will have to win some big Pac 12 games and get off to a great start, since the Ducks only face one team ranked in the preseason top 25 in the first half of the season.
Oregon Ducks hoops preview time. While the loss of big man Jovan Catron hurts the Ducks inside, the addition of freshman shooting guard stud Jabari Brown helps them bigtime. For my Pac 12 preview, I had the Oregon Ducks finishing 5th in the conference just behind the UW Huskies, with both teams moving on in March.
