Beating Savannah State means nothing. Those two teams don't even belong on the same court together. I still think Oregon will be fine, but saying they are over their problems because they beat a really bad basketball team is premature.
On a side note, I think the best team in the Pac-12 is UCLA. They went into Lexington and beat the #1 ranked Kentucky.
Under Altman UO has always started slow, but by mid season is generally hitting its stride. Beating SSU isn't a big deal, but beating them the way they did is. True Fr Prichard, who early in the year did say to much dribbling and slowed the O, is starting to look really a lot better. He's making decisive decisions now and seems to understand the O and other players better. BTW he had 13 assists. Dorsey, who couldn't make crap without Brooks, is now starting to find his shot. A lot of that has to do with teams not being able to double team him now, he had 29 (20 in the first half and sat out the last 10 minutes of the second.). Brooks finally looked healthy, when he's healthy and going strong, UO can beat anyone in the country. He is to UO basketball what Chancellor is to Seattles D. He the leader and he makes it go.
