OREGON DUCKS RUMORS & GOSSIP

New Year, New Ducks Basketball Team

This season, Oregon’s basketball team brought in 9 new players out of 15 on the roster, started out ranked #19 in the AP poll, and went undefeated through their 1st 12 games. In recent years, the Oregon Ducks’ football team has overshadowed the Ducks’ basketball team.

Mamadou Ndiaye Creates Hilarious Picture as 7-Foot-6 Player Matches Up Against 5-Foot-8 Oregon Guard (Photo)

Oregon might have had the last laugh by beating UC-Irvine 91-63, but people are probably going to remember something else from Tuesday night’s game. The Ducks had no trouble handling UC-Irvine and its claim to fame, 7-foot-6 Mamadou Ndiaye, the tallest player in college basketball this year. At least, the team didn’t have trouble handling Ndiaye. When 5-foot-8 guard Johnathan...

Tiny Oregon player Johnathan Loyd posts up 7-foot-6 Mamadou Ndiaye

Well, have a look at this photo and you’ll get the point: You must see this photo by @daviesphoto. 7-foot-6 Mamadou Ndiaye vs. […]

It is in the frontcourt that trouble arises. Oregon basketball only has a handful of problems, and one...

Oregon Suspends Basketball Players Dominic Artis and Ben Carter for Selling Team-Issued Apparel

19th ranked Oregon has suspended point guard Dominic Artis and forward Ben Carter indefinitely for selling team gear.  I haven’t seen a move this idiotic by a college athlete since the football players at Ohio State exchanged memorabilia for tattoos.  One has to wonder, were they dumb enough not to realize that selling team-issued apparel is an NCAA violation, or did they simply...
