Headlines in Eugene, Ore,: “No Tourney, No Ernie”

It was an eventful night in the Pac-10.
California and Arizona State began separating from the rest of the conference with road wins, Oregon State is now in the mix of things after beating Arizona at home and Oregon looks to be in shambles.
AROUND THE PAC-10:
— Arizona State is streaking. The Sun Devils have won three in a row and last night they went into Eugene, Ore. and destroyed Oregon 76-57 for their first road win of the season. The Arizona Republic reports that during ASU’s streak, “All three opponents faced double-digit deficits in the first half. None shot better than 37.3 percent.”
— While folks in Tempe, Ariz. are celebrating, Duck fans are wondering if Oregon’s season already on the brink?
Junior LeKendric Longmire told the Register-Guard: “You don’t lose by 20-some points at home. That is unacceptable, especially with the crowd we have. I thank the fans for sticking around with us, but they deserve better, the whole state deserves better.”
— It seems the fans have turned on the Ducks. The Oregonian writes the school sent out an e-mail earlier this week offering general fans seats in the once lively student section known as the Pit Crew, “a once unthinkable offer for seats once considered treasures.”
— Here’s another look at the ASU-Oregon game. This story calls it two steps forward, two steps back for the Ducks.
— Oregon State center Roeland Schaftenaar keyed a late comeback as the Beavers rallied from 11 points behind in the second half to beat Arizona 67-64.
— The Wildcats are calling the defeat “The Collapse in Corvallis.” It’s a tough pill to swallow anytime someone hits a three-pointer with 0.9 of a second to beat you.
— The Spokesman-Review revisits Washington State’s 93-88 defeat to Cal.
Steve Kelley was at the game and he wrote about WSU freshman point guard Reggie Moore. Kelley writes: “Moore finished with 25 points and five assists in 29 stout minutes. It wasn’t enough, but his game was a harbinger of the future of Cougars basketball under Ken Bone.”
