Series vs. Montana
The Ducks lead the series over the Griz 8-2, but Montana has won two of the last three. The teams haven't played each other since December 1991, when the Griz romped 101-69 in Missoula. Oregon hasn't won in Missoula since Feb. 5, 1981, where Bev Smith set a UO record with 38 points to go with 11 rebounds.
Series vs. TCU
The teams have played each other just once, as Oregon won 75-63 at the Papï¿½ Jam last season at the Rose Garden in Portland.
