EUGENE, Ore. – With seven transfers new to the Ducks and two players serving suspensions, No. 13 Oregon is looking surprisingly cohesive.
Oregon swept the field this past weekend at the Global Sports Hardwood Classic tournament in Eugene to improve to 7-0 for the team's best start since the 2007-08 season.
Guard Joseph Young, who came to the Ducks from Houston, is the team's leading scorer with an average of 23.3 points, while Mike Moser from UNLV is averaging 13.7 points and 7 rebounds. The starting duo already has developed chemistry.
Adding to the mix is forward Elgin Cook from Northwest Florida State, forward Richard Amardi from Indian Hills Community College, guard Jalil Abdul-Bassit from North Idaho College, guard Jason Calliste from Detroit and forward Brian Crow from Sonoma State.
