EUGENE, Ore. - The 2001-02 men's basketball highlight video from Oregon's Pac-10 championship season and NCAA Tournament Elite Eight run will go on sale Wednesday at 14 Safeway stores in western Oregon. The video retails for $14.99 with a Safeway Club Card. It is also available for $19.99 at the Duck Shops in Portland and Eugene, and at the University Bookstore on campus.
The video, titled 'Oregon Basketball Championship Season,' features highlights from the Ducks' 26-9 season that saw Oregon win the Pac-10 Conference outright for the first time since 1939, and advance to the NCAA Tournament's regional finals for the first time since 1960 to finish tied for sixth in the final national poll. The video contains all seven of ESPN's 'Inside Access: Oregon Basketball,' seen nationally on Sportscenter during the Ducks' Tournament run.
The video also has clips of Oregon's record-tying 16-0 performance at McArthur Court, regular season wins over Louisville, Arizona, UCLA, Stanford, USC and Oregon State, and NCAA Tournament wins against Montana, Wake Forest and Texas.
Narrated by the Oregon Sports Network's Joe Giansante with audio from play-by-play announcer Jerry Allen, the video contains all the slam ducks, three-pointers and pinpoint passes from NBA first round draft choice Frederick Jones, Luke Ridnour, Luke Jackson, Chris Christoffersen and Robert Johnson.
