Duck Stuff: Morning Mud

Morning Mud
■ Oregon's run at a sweet sixteen spot and perhaps further came to an end yesterday against Wisconsin in a tale of two halves.

Rob Moseley has post some post game notes: Oregon closes the season with a 24-10 overall record, having won an NCAA Tournament game in consecutive seasons for the first time in program history. UO set the program-record for most wins in a three-year and four-year span after its 24-win season ... Joseph Young scored a game-high 29 points, which is the third-highest point total from a Duck in the NCAA Tournament. His 643 points this season ranks fifth-best in program history ... The Ducks outscored Wisconsin 29-13 in bench scoring, eclipsing the 1,000 point mark from their bench this season (1,011) ... Oregon led 49-37 at halftime and once led by as much as 14 before Wisconsin rallied in the second half. Oregon’s 49 first half points are the most Wisconsin has allowed in a first half all season ... UO went 21-of-23 (91%) at the free throw line, led by Calliste’s perfect 11-of-11 mark from the charity stripe.

John Canzano probably shares many of the same frustrations as basketball fans. (good read)

■ Freshman Matt Krook picked up his second straight win allowing just one unearned run, while striking out six in five innings as Oregon beat Utah 4-1 yesterday at PK Park.

Aaron Payne led the Ducks going 3-for-4 with a RBI and a run scored.

Oregon and Utah wrap up the three-game series Sunday at 11 a.m. Jeff Gold will take the mound with Oregon looking for the sweep.

GO DUCKS!
