Bol Bol Draft Profile

Bol Bol Draft Profile

Lottery pick or just a first-rounder? Oregon fans may have not been able to see Bol play as much as they hoped but it seems that NBA scouts have seen enough. Bol is mostly projected to be a top-10 pick in the upcoming NBA Draft (according to countless mock boards) but he does have some issues with his body structure and staying healthy. In the games that Bol did play, he proved his worth and produced. His season averages consisted of 21.0 PPG, 9.6 RPG, 2.7 BPG in 29.7 MPG. Bol also shot 56.1% from the field and 52.0% from behind the three-point line in the nine games he suited up. ...

Talking with Incoming Oregon Duck, Chris Duarte

Talking with Incoming Oregon Duck, Chris Duarte

Duarte is apart of the 2019 basketball recruiting class If you don’t know who Chris Duarte is, just know that he is the 2018-2019 NJCAA Division 1 National Player of the Year and he is headed to Eugene next fall to play under Dana Altman. Chris is a 6’6” guard from Puero Plata in the Dominican Republic. You would think only baseball players come from the Dominican but Chris choose to go a different route and I would say it has panned out really well for him. Take a bow, @chrisduarte08 Duarte has been named the @NJCAABasketball Division I Spalding® Player of the Year after an...

Amid rough season, Oregon Softball faces off against #1 UCLA Bruins

Is there an upset Bruin? After the transfer of ten players in a single offseason, it was clear that this was going to be a rebuilding year for Coach Melyssa Lombardi and the Oregon Softball team. Chosen by the media to finish last in the PAC-12, the once mighty Ducks started out strong with six straight wins but have since accumulated a 16-19, 1-8 record. Oregon has fallen victim to nine run-rule losses and has struggled with consistency in all phases of the game. To make things worse, the transfer of Maddie MacGrandle leaves Oregon with one scholarship pitcher. MacGrandle may not have...

2019 NFL Draft: Defensive Line Big Board

2019 NFL Draft: Defensive Line Big Board

Who are the best defensive linemen prospects in this year's class? EDGE 1. Nick Bosa 6’3 266 Ohio State - Bosa showed very little rust at the Combine after missing out on the majority of the 2018 season due to injury. He’s by far the best edge prospect in this year’s class. He should be the second overall pick to San Francisco barring a major surprise with the Arizona Cardinals. 2. Josh Allen 6’4 262 Kentucky - Allen came back for his senior year and he made the most of it, catapulting himself into the top defensive prospect discussion. He’s a top 15 lock. 3. Brian Burns 6’4...
