THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 7, 2019

The record-setting season for the Oregon Tech Women’s Soccer Team continued this morning as the Lady Owls were ranked inside the NAIA Coaches’ Top 25 Poll for the first time in school history. 

They are ranked at No. 24 this week up from the receiving vote’s category with 45 points a week ago.

Last weekend, the Lady Owls defeated Northwest University 4-3 in double overtime and then took down the Evergreen State College with a 3-0 shutout win. The two wins provided the team with a new school record, seventh and eighth straight Conference wins, finishing conference play undefeated at 10-0-2, and secured a Cascade Conference regular season championship for the first time in school history.

The regular season championship also earned the Lady Owls an automatic berth to the NAIA National Championship Opening Round on November 22-23. This will be the first NAIA Championship appearance for the soccer program.

The schedule says this is a bye week, but the Oregon Duck football team was hard at work Wednesday.

After returning to practice with a walk-through Tuesday, the Ducks were back in full pads for the first time since their 56-24 win at USC this past Saturday. Freshly anointed the No. 7 team in the country by the College Football Playoff selection committee, the Ducks are looking ahead to their next game, at home on Nov. 16 against Arizona.

Wednesday’s practice looked a little different than others this fall, but only a little. There was no scout team designated, so developmental-squad players were in green and white gear like the veterans. And some periods that usually feature work for the No. 1 and No. 2 units also featured time for the No. 3 groups to take reps against each other.

Portland Trail Blazers forward Zach Collins underwent successful surgery today to repair his left labrum, it was announced by president of basketball operations Neil Olshey.

The injury occurred when Collins dislocated his left shoulder at the 2:01 mark of the third quarter in Portland’s game at Dallas on October 27.

Collins will begin a treatment and rehabilitation process and will be re-evaluated in approximately four months.

The Blazers are back in action tonight on CBS Sports Radio The Winner as they visit the LA Cliippers at Staples Center beginning at 7:30.

Dana Altman became the winningest head coach in Oregon Men’s Basketball history Tuesday by leading the No. 15 Ducks to a 71-57 victory over Fresno State in the 2019-20 regular-season opener before 6,779 fans in Matthew Knight Arena.

Altman, who is in his 10th season at Oregon, picked up win No. 236 with the Ducks, breaking a tie for the UO career lead with former Oregon player and coach Ernie Kent. Altman improved to 236-96 with the Ducks, and 646-339 as an NCAA Division-I head coach.

Oregon won its season opener for the 22nd year in a row, and improved to 13-2 all-time against Fresno State — including a perfect 10-0 when facing the Bulldogs in Eugene.

The Ducks host Boise State in Matthew Knight Arena on Saturday.

Number 1 ranked Gladstone blitzed Mazama 9-0 and Philomath nipped Henley 1-0 in the first round of the OSAA Class 4A soccer playoffs, ending the season for both teams from the Basin.

No boys team qualified for the state playoffs from the Basin this year.
