Really great game
Just finished watching the Oregon (ranked #21) vs. UCLA (ranked #2) game on ESPN2. Ducks win by 2 with a 3 point shot in the final seconds, 89-87. Even though the team I was supporting won, it still would have been a great game even if they didn't. The game was in Eugene on the Duck's court which has trees painted on it. Bill Walton, who played for UCLA and also for the Portland Trailblazers, did the color commentary. He had a lot of insight but was very critical of the officials. The play-by-play guy corrected him quite a few times. That was cool. Another thing that contributed to the how great the game was is that I watched it in hi-def

Oh yeah - I forgot. During a timeout in the first half, the TV announcers interviewed an Oregon alumnus and big Oregon sports fan - Phil Knight! Yes - I do mean Mr. Nike. Oregon's basketball facility is named after Phil's son. Can you guess where the money came from to build it? Uh, not from Reebok. ;)
