Maybe it's time to let the Ford thread rest for a week and share our thoughts and analysis on the upcoming game. Let's try to keep this thread flame free, m'kay?

#8 - Oregon (25-9)
  • Conference: Pac-12 (13-5)
  • BPI Rank: 47
  • PPG: 75.6
  • Opp. PPG: 70.7
  • Vs. Top 25: 2-4
  • Last 12 Games: 10-2
  • Notable Results: Arizona (lost 3 times), Utah (won twice), VCU (L by 14), UCLA (W/L)
  • Team Summary: On the bright side, Pac-12 Player of the Year Joseph Young (20.2 ppg) has been spectacular of late and can put this team on his back. On the negative, no Oregon regular is taller than 6-7 or weighs more than 206 pounds, and the Ducks don't force a ton of turnovers.
#9 - Oklahoma St (18-13)
  • Conference: Big 12 (8-10)
  • BPI Rank: 48
  • PPG: 67.3
  • Opp. PPG: 62.3
  • Vs. Top 25: 3-9
  • Last 12 Games:5-7
  • Notable Results: Kansas (W/L), Baylor (won twice), Okla (lost 3 times), Maryland (L by 9)
  • Team Summary:The Cowboys lost six of their final seven games to end the regular season. Travis Ford relies heavily on the duo of Le'Bryan Nash (16.8 ppg) and Phil Forte (15.5 ppg). Nash is a matchup problem, while Forte has unlimited range behind the arc. The team has to step up defensively, though.

(Imo) for the Pokes to win either Hickey or Forte has to be the 3rd best player on the floor.

In all seriousness Joseph Young used to play for Coach Dickey at the University of Houston so he could have a pretty good idea of how to defend him in this game. Obviously it was a couple seasons ago and his game could have evolved but I do like that we have his former HC on our bench.

This game will be mostly about defensive effort and rebounding. We are taller then Oregon and solomon and Cobbins are pretty athletic if they crash the boards along with Nash we should win and get lots of second chance opprotunities. If they don't then it'll be the same thing we do every year one and done.

Did Young transfer this year from Houston??? When did he transfer?

Also, how come Tayshawn Thomas didn't transfer to OSU since we had Dickey here? Does that seem odd to anyone else???

He transferred to Oregon before the 2013-2014 season and was granted immediate eligibility due to his father being reassigned on the Houston Cougars staff.

Don’t know that it’s odd about Thomas, but it certainly stinks. Danuel House transferred to A&M and started immediately and he also would have been a welcome addition to our club.

Did Ford offer Thomas a spot? Ford might have thought he did not need him since he had his 7 footer Allen and Solomon. It would be interesting to know.

Forte, Hickey, and Newberry: we need two of these guys to show up and score. I think Forte is gassed, a season of getting banged around.

Nash can't play 1 on 5 again.

Hickey, Forte, Newberry disappear, Poke lose by 10
They show up: Pokes by 8

I had heard rumblings that we were pursuing him but I don’t think I ever heard or read it from Ford himself so no we probably did not have a spot. That’s as good of a guess as any because if we did you’d like to think Ford would have wanted him or House.

Oregon's guards go 6'2" and 6'4". Doesn't look real good for Forte being able to shake free and get open looks. Have to get scoring from Forte/Hickey/Newberry to have any prayer.

Solomon goes off for 15 points in the first half and Ford doesn't play him at all in the 2nd.

Just kidding. It seems like we match up alright with Oregon, I just don't know if this team can break out of their funk.

If we don't get out rebounded 2-1 like we normally do, we will win. This team has too many shooters to let them get the boards. If OSU outrebounds UO, OSU wins. Pretty simple formula here. The size match-ups besides Forte, I like. Nash should have his way inside and from the elbows. Cobbins should close out EASILY on the freshman. Getting offensive boards will also open up the perimeter.

Crash the boards, win the game.
