Oregon Ducks basketball controls its Pac-12 destiny

Go to Addicted to Quack to learn more about the Ducks.

It's simple for Oregon. If they win out, they take the crown. If they lose, they'll need other teams to lose too.

Oregon had a rough week coming off the Bay Area losses to Cal and Stanford; the Ducks blew a solid two game lead in the standings and are now tied with Arizona for the outright lead. Oregon has beaten Arizona head-to-head, but those results are immaterial in the final calculus--if both teams have the same record at the end of the season, they'll share the conference crown. Oregon's road is easier though, drawing the Washington schools at home and then UCLA and USC on the road.

Tyler Dorsey leads Oregon in rout over Oregon State [Addicted to Quack]: "Tyler Dorsey. What a game from the Freshman. Dorsey had a fantastic shooting night going 9-16 on field goals and then 3-7 from three. The 25 points tied Dorsey's career high that he set earlier this season against Western Oregon. Big for the Ducks to have Dorsey break his brief slump."

Oregon Showed They Learned Their Lesson [Duck Territory]: "The Oregon Ducks learned their lesson last week and proved it by blowing out Oregon State."

Oregon Wraps Up Oregon State 91-81 [eDuck]: "Tyler Dorsey scored 25 points as Oregon won in a dominating fashion over Oregon State despite a misleading final score of 91-81. Oregon led all but the first few minute of the game and finished with four players in double figures."
