Men's Basketball: Oregon 92, Alabama 69

Michael Dunigan and Joevan Catron had their second double-doubles of the season to lead Oregon to a 92-69 victory over Alabama on Monday night in the opening round of the EA Sports Maui Invitational.

I watched the game last night on ESPN 2 from Maui and this very young team was fun to watch. Last year with a mostly Senior line up they were often painful to watch. Alabama is not that great a team and gave up at the end but the Ducks were diving for basketballs and showed a lot of enthusiasm. They are young and may not win a lot of games but if they play like last night they will be a team we can be proud of. Ernie Kent did a good recruiting job. Joevan Catron, is a real warrior.

BTW Kent is starting to look old and we were both students together at Oregon....oh no......?
