#13 (at the time) Oregon is a team we don’t often mention, but they have an excellent collegiate point guard who is playing VERY high level basketball. Payton Pritchard led the Ducks to a much-needed win over Hawaii, snapping a two-game losing skid. Pritchard went for a double-double in the victory, scoring 20 and dishing out a season-high 11 assists. he’s fun to watch (i wish he was playing for the Zags!). speaking of Gonzaga(currently #8), their all-White frontline dominated in a win on the road against intrastate rival #22 Washington. The trio of Tillie, Petrusev, and Kispert combined for 47 points and 19 rebounds (and true freshman Drew Timme chipped in 4 and 4 more off the bench), led by Petrusev’s 17&10. Tillie stuffed the entire stat sheet, adding team-highs of 6 assists and 4 steals to go with the aforementioned numbers. dude is gonna make a lot of money playing somewhere. #5 Virginia bounced back from a blowout loss to knock off #7 North Carolina pretty handily. CF favorite Jay Huff had a tough night, but freshman center Francisco Caffaro picked up the slack quite nicely, notching 10 points (on 4-5 shooting), 7 boards, and 1 block in 21 minutes off the bench. he also had a really sweet alley-oop dunk. Stattmann had his usual solid but unspectacular outing, playing tough defense and knocking down a few big shots. tonight tough-but-depleted Iowa plays again. hopefully they can recover quickly from their hard-fought loss to #4 Michigan.
