Oregon men’s basketball back on track?

Ducks show resilience to snap two-game losing streak with an impressive 81-60 win over USC Sunday.

Eugene, OR. -- A few days ago, Oregon men’s basketball head coach Dana Altman said his team was “gut punched” by the UCLA Bruins after the deflating 84-87 overtime loss.
However, Oregon (10-6, 1-2 Pac-12) seemed to put that defeat in its rear-view mirror with an impressive 81-60 victory over USC on Sunday.

“After a tough loss, you have to get right back on your horse and swing away,” said Oregon senior forward Paul White.

Well, Oregon certainly got back on its horse and started throwing haymakers against USC.

The Ducks, who were the preseason conference favorite, responded by shooting 56 percent overall and making 13-of-24 from three-point range to beat the Trojans in front of 8,148 fans in Matthew Knight Arena.

Oregon forwards Paul White and Louis King were major contributors on offense, as each scored 19 points. Will Richardson and Victor Bailey Jr. also added to that production level, scoring a combined 21 points of their own.

Defensively, the Ducks dominated the boards, out-rebounding USC 35-24. Oregon put together what may have been its best performance of the season to avoid dropping its opening three conference games since coach Dana Altman's first season in Eugene.

Heading into the Ducks’ next two road contests in the state of Arizona, sophomore guard Victor Bailey Jr. said, “we just have to stay with the same energy, same push and keep our foot on the pedal.”

Oregon will play the Arizona Wildcats on Thursday at 6 p.m.
