Ducks release documents

Oregon received a formal notice of allegations in December related into the NCAA investigation into its use of recruiting services. The notice, released in response to public records requests, follows reports that Oregon already met with the NCAA Committee on Infractions last month. The NCAA has been looking into payments Oregon made to recruiting services, including a $25,000 payment to Willie Lyles and Houston-based Complete Scouting Services in 2011. University President Michael Gottfredson received the notice of allegations on Dec. 5. Much of what is included mirrors what was in a summary disposition that Oregon submitted to the NCAA last October. – AP

Smith leads Louisville to 77-69 victory over Ducks

INDIANAPOLIS – Even a nasty cold can’t stop Russ Smith. With his teammates struggling with the virus he gave them and top-seeded Louisville facing its toughest test of the postseason, Smith put on his best show yet. He matched his career high of 31 points and the Cardinals proved they can win close games, too, beating Oregon 77-69 on Friday night.

Oregon dismisses Billikens

SAN JOSE, Calif. – Pac-12 tournament champions. No. 12 seed. Underdogs. Oregon is happy to carry any label it’s given in the NCAA tournament – all the way into the round of 16.

Ladd still missing for Cougs

PULLMAN – It’s hard for men’s basketball coach Ken Bone to quantify exactly what the loss of Mike Ladd means to Washington State. Ladd, who missed Wednesday’s loss to Oregon State with a left knee injury, is expected to sit again this afternoon when the Cougars host No. 23 Oregon at Beasley Coliseum.

Cougars forge ahead without Ladd

Washington State's Mike Ladd, who missed Wednesday’s loss to Oregon State with a left knee injury, is expected to sit again this afternoon when the Cougars host No. 23 Oregon at Beasley Coliseum.

No. 16 Oregon beats WSU

Cougs playing hard without wins

EUGENE – After a 1-4 start to Pac-12 play, it figures that there are more questions than answers surrounding the Washington State men’s basketball program. The Cougars are still searching for a consistent solution to the great corralling of leading scorer Brock Motum, who has been victimized by the creativity of opposing defenses thus far. They want to execute better offensively – especially late in games – focusing on minor details such as coming off screens properly and being in the right place within the framework of the offense.

Oregon promotes Helfrich

Mark Helfrich is Oregon’s next man in. As usual, the Ducks wasted little time finding a replacement for Chip Kelly, promoting their affable offensive coordinator to head coach Sunday. Kelly left to become coach of the Philadelphia Eagles on Wednesday.

Oregon’s Kelly a top NFL target again

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – One of the first questions Oregon coach Chip Kelly was asked after arriving in Arizona for the Fiesta Bowl was about the possibility of coaching in the NFL. The are-you-going-to-the- NFL questions haven’t let up in the five days since and only figure to pick up after seven coaches were fired Monday.

‘Civil War’ stakes high as ever this Saturday

CORVALLIS, Ore. – Back in 2000, Oregon had a chance to clinch a Rose Bowl berth with a victory over Oregon State in the Civil War rivalry game. Instead, Joey Harrington threw five interceptions and the Ducks lost 23-13. There’s been some debate among fans this week about which loss was harder, that game 12 years ago or Oregon’s 17-14 overtime loss to Stanford last weekend. Time will ultimately tell for the Ducks, but the stakes are high again for this year’s Civil War on Saturday at Reser Stadium.

Ducks look to soar over Trojans

LOS ANGELES – Southern California linebacker Hayes Pullard connects with Oregon tailback De’Anthony Thomas pretty much every day, either by phone or text. They went to Crenshaw High School together, and they’ve been anticipating the Ducks’ visit to the Coliseum today nearly since graduation.

Oregon crushes Colorado in Pac-12 football

EUGENE, Ore. – The Oregon Ducks spent all last week saying they weren’t looking past Colorado to next weekend’s Pac-12 showdown at USC. So after the second-ranked Ducks easily dispatched the Buffaloes 70-14 on Saturday at Autzen Stadium, it was OK to finally talk about the Trojans.

Kelly, Sarkisian play down Oregon-Washington rivalry

EUGENE, Ore. – Oregon coach Chip Kelly seized on SpongeBob SquarePants when describing how the No. 2 Ducks feel about the past rivalry with the Washington Huskies. He says most of the acrimony between the teams occurred more than a decade ago.

WSU just worried about getting it right against No. 2 Oregon

SEATTLE – Since Chip Kelly took over as Oregon’s head football coach prior to the 2009 season, the Ducks have lost six games – once to USC, once to LSU, once to Auburn, once to Ohio State, once to Stanford and once, in Kelly’s debut as coach, to Boise State. And a Washington State assistant coach had a pretty good view of that one.
