Another two-win weekend for the Ducks has Dana Altman’s crew climbing in the Top 25, from No. 21 last week to No. 16 this week.

When Oregon played UCLA on Saturday, it was the first time since 2009 that two ranked Pac-12 teams played each other, and it’s unlikely to happen again this year, at least in the regular season. UCLA fell from 24th to outside the Top 25 with the loss. The only other ranked team in the conference is Arizona, still sitting just outside the Top 5 at sixth, but the Ducks don’t play the Wildcats or the Bruins again this year unless they meet in the Pac-12 tourney.

    “When Oregon played UCLA on Saturday, it was the first time since 2009 that two Pac-12 teams played each other”…I think you meant to say two ranked Pac12 teams…
