The 2007 Christmas season has not been as generous as Head Coach Ernie Kent would like. The Ducks dropped an 88-79 double overtime loss to Nebraska on Dec. 15th and then were upset by Oakland of Detroit, 68-62 on Dec. 22nd. Kent has attributed the losses to the team not executing at crucial times of the game.
The Mountaineers had a six-game win streaked snapped by Winthrop on Dec. 21st. Mount St. Mary's has three players that score in double figures. Guard Chris Vann, 6-0, is the teams top point scorer at 16.5 points per game. Guard Jeremy Goode, 5-9, contributes 15.6 points and 5.9 assists per game while guard Will Holland, 6-4 chips in 10.2 points per contest.
Guard Malik Hairston could surpass Jim Barnett on the career scoring list tonight. Hairston currently has 1,309 career points while Barnett is the No. 12 all-time scorer in Oregon history with 1,325. Guard Bryce Taylor can also move up the career scoring chart tonight. Taylor is tied at 18 th with 1,183 and should surpass both Bob Hamilton (1,183) and Dick Wilkins (1,186) to assume the No. 17 spot.
A win help restore confidence for the Ducks as they get ready to start Pac-10 play next week.
The game is not televised but eDuck subscribers can follow the action with other fans in Game Chat. The game will be aired on the Oregon Sports Network with Jerry Allen calling the action.
