Preview & Gamer: Oregon MBB vs Colorado

February 18, 2021

Oregon takes on Colorado at 8 p.m. The game is available to watch on ESPN2.

Oregon comes into this matchup with a record of 12-4 and currently in 3rd place in the Pac-12. Colorado is 16-6 on the season but sits at 4th in the Pac-12 standings.

These 2 teams faced off earlier this season on January 7th in Boulder. Colorado bested Oregon 79-72. Chris Duarte led the team in scoring with 27 points and grabbed 6 rebounds. LJ Figueroa and Eugene Omoruyi were both able to put up double-digit points, but outside of that trio no one was able to crack into the double-digits.

It’s a big matchup for Oregon as they look at add a quality win on their resume. With the cancellation of some of their games, they’re in a tough battle to make the NCAA tournament. A win against Colorado would greatly improve their chances and help them inch closer towards finishing top-4 in the Pac-12 standings and earning a bye in the first round of the Pac-12 tournament.

It’s going to be a great game at Matthew Knight arena as both teams are hoping to prove they’re a top tier Pac-12 team.
