3. Oregon Ducks (9-4) LW: 3
Despite the absence of freshman center Bol Bol, who is out with a lower leg injury, coach Dana Altman and Oregon closed out non-conference play with a 62-50 victory over Boise State.
Against the Broncos, the Ducks struggled to find a consistent form of offense with only two players reaching double figures and 38 percent shooting as a team.
Of the players who reached double-digits in scoring was redshirt senior guard Ehab Amin, who erupted for 23 points, six rebounds, two assists, and three steals off the bench.
There is a chance Bol will be ready for the start of the Pac-12 schedule. If not, the Ducks need to find a reliable source of offensive to help fill his void in the interim.
The solution could come in the form of fellow freshman wing Louis King, a five-star prospect as well. After an injury sidelined him for most of non-conference it might take him a few games to find his groove, but he has the potential to take the Ducks to new levels if he can achieve his potential and coexist with Bol.
After a disappointing non-conference in Eugene, a win over rival Oregon State at home in the Pac-12 opener on Saturday could be exactly what the Ducks need to reignite their season.
The talent is there for Oregon, it is just a matter of time before its play on the court reflect on its record.
