best not to make the mistake of thinking that they can't do some serious damage on the hardwood as well. With another talented

seat very often.

share of playmakers. But even though the competition is assured to be stiff, the Ducks always have some big-time firepower
of their own, making it always a good idea to make it out and see if the Ducks have what it takes to pile up the wins and
make a move up the conference standings. If you've never seen the Ducks the way they're meant to be seen, or if it's simply
been a while, there has never been a better time to put down the remote and join in the bench-gripping excitement first-hand.

in college hoops hit the hardwood for an exciting game that is sure to be loaded with rim-rocking jams, spectacular blocked
shots and nail-biting moments that will have you out of your seat in no time. There's plenty of options for following the
Ducks this season, as we all know, but you're way off if you think you're going to conjure up the passion and intensity of
the arena by checking out the highlights on your smart phone or squinting at the flatscreen at the other end of the bar down
the street from your apartment.
Against teams like Cal, Arizona State, Stanford, Oregon State
and many more in the ultra-competitive PAC-12, the Ducks get to go up against some of the toughest teams in college hoops,
though the Ducks also have plenty of talented players that know how to wreak havoc on their opponents from game to game and
season to season. Guys like Aaron Brooks, Luke Ridnour and Lauren Gale represent just a tiny sample of the prominent players
who have come through campus, and the next superstar might come from anywhere considering the steady string of electrifying
players who come to campus at Eugene.
Oregon Ducks Trivia
Did you know that the Ducks have made it to
the Sweet Sixteen five different times?
The Ducks first made it to the Sweet Sixteen all the way back in the late-1930s
but they picked it back up in 1960 and then again in 2002, 2007 and 2013. Though the Ducks have yet to put it all together
and make a run all the way to the top of the country in the modern Tournament era, this is a program that is on the rise and
it seems that it's only a matter of time before they're cutting down the nets and bringing a championship back to campus.
