MBB: Oregon Loses a Close One, Falls to USC 75-70.

Following an encouraging road trip in Arizona, which saw the Ducks go 1-1 against two top 25 opponents, Oregon could not overcome USC’s front court, as the Trojans came into Matt Knight and defeated the Ducks 75-70. Chimezie Metu and Bennie Boatwright both lead the Trojans with 18 points a piece, as Oregon wasn’t able to come up with any answers for the USC bigs. USC was also able to snap their 14-game losing streak to Oregon, as the Ducks continue to search for answers this season. Oregon will get their shot to bounce back this Saturday against UCLA, tipoff is slated for 7:15 pm.
