The Oregon Ducks football team isn't the only sports program in Eugene having success in athletics. The men's basketball team is enjoying a successful season starting 6-0 in conference play for the first time since the 1925-1926 season. Head coach Dana Altman joined John Canzano on The Bald Faced Truth to talk about the 2012-2013 season.
The roster has been developing under coach Altman with some surprises. Altman spoke with John about a few players that are helping pave the way for the Ducks success.
"Tony Woods has been good inside, Carlos Emory taken a step and played well, Johnny Loyd has really been solid coming off the bench as our backup point. And E.J. Singler although he had a tough time in the Fall with tendinitis in his knee has really come back and got himself in shape and is starting to play pretty good for us."
The Pac-12 Tournament has moved it's location and will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada. Coach Altman spoke about the move with John Canzano.
"The league needed a change, you know L.A. we just didn't get the support the crowds there everything was so expensive for our fans to come in and stay at the Staples Center or anywhere downtown very expensive, I think fans will find Vegas a little more fan friendly."
Coach Altman and John also talk about getting a quick start in conference play and moving forward and continuing to improve their play.
