Ducks Begin Seven-Game Homestand Tuesday
Oregon begins a seven-game homestand Tuesday versus Portland State. After the Vikings, the Ducks host Washington and Oregon State over the next two weekends.

The Ducks are in the midst of a stretch that finds them playing 18-of-19 games against teams currently ranked in the top 25, as well as 13 consecutive games versus 2021 NCAA Tournament teams. This will be the 187th meeting between the Ducks and the Vikings (Oregon leads, 125-61).
