Happy Birthday To Us

Jay-R Strowbridge celebrated his 23rd birthday by going off on the Beavs for 26 points.   Seemingly unable to miss, J.R. hit 6 of 9 three-pointers and helped lead the Ducks to a trouncing of the Beavers in 335th meeting of the two schools.
Gotta give a Winged Zed to Jay-R for his play against the Corvallians.
-wish you had more eligibility left.

     Is it too early to talk about Dana Altman as Coach of the Year in the Pac 10?   Too often the award is handed out to a coach who merely has great player talent - it takes real coaching to get a team to play above their perceived abilities.   Predicted to dwell in the outhouse basement of the Pac-10, Altman's coaching has the Ducks sitting in the middle of the standings. Fans are even thinking about the possibility of post-season play.   I wonder if Duck defectors Crittle, Humphrey, Wiley, and Dunnigan wish they had stayed.......I don't.
