Mens Basketball: Ducks Picked SECOND in Pac-12 Preseason Poll

Recommended Posts

(Press Release from Oregon Athletics)

 

SAN FRANCISCO – Senior Will Richardson was named to the Pac-12 preseason all-conference first team, while junior transfers Quincy Guerrier and De’Vion Harmon earned second team honors, the league announced Wednesday morning.

 

In addition, two-time defending conference champion Oregon was picked to finish second in the Pac-12, receiving two first place votes. The Ducks have now been picked inside the top four in seven consecutive preseason polls.

 

It is the second straight preseason first team honor for Richardson, who averaged 11.3 points, 3.9 assists and 3.4 rebounds per game last season, helping the team advance to the Sweet Sixteen. He enters the season with a chance to move into Oregon’s career top 10 lists in steals, assists, three-point field goal percentage and wins.

 

Guerrier recorded eight double-doubles and four 20-point games for Syracuse last season, helping the Orange secure a birth in the Sweet Sixteen. Earning third team All-ACC honors, Guerrier averaged 13.7 points, 8.4 rebounds and 1.1 blocks per game. Harmon reached double figures in 19 games, including four 20-point outings for Oklahoma last season. He earned All-Big 12 honorable mention with averages of 12.9 points, 3.4 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.1 steals per game.

I am not surprised that Will Richardson was named to the first team, but two of our transfers....who have not played for us yet made the second team?  Whew!  They must be pretty-darn-good!

Thanks Charles, the ranking seems right to me?

 

I do not want to put the jinx on for Friday night's game, but what in the heck has happened to CAL athletics? Is the administration at CAL the least bit interested in sports?

 

I guess I could ask the same about many programs in the conference.

Killer swimming and water polo; I believe they actually have more NCs than we do over time...
