The Oregon Ducks snapped their three-game losing streak and defeated the Utah Utes 73-64 Saturday night at Matthew Knight Arena. The Ducks, despite turning the ball over 17 times and shooting 39 percent from the field, dominated the boards with a 41-19 rebounding advantage. The Ducks also went 27 of 35 from the free-throw line (77 percent), a little above their season average of 72 percent. The Utes shot 11 of 16 from the freethrow line and 48 percent from the field. The men’s basketball team, at 18-5 (8-3), holds sole ownership of the second place spot in the Pac-12 and is a half-game behind Arizona (20-2, 8-2). The Ducks will take on the Washington Huskies in Seattle on Wednesday night.

    I’ve been noticing someone doing your proofreading for you, so thought I would join in. “Senior forward E.J. Singler (25) tries disrupts the shot attempt”, “Loyd, went 0-8 in Oregon’s previous game against Colorado on Thursday.”, “Oregon forward Arsalan Kazemi (14) is congradulated for his efforts”, “Athletic trainer Clay Jamieson pads down Johnathan Loyd (10) injuriy” (maybe 2 errors in this one).

      The effort on your part is appreciated.

      In most cases, Emerald photographers are primarily concerned about getting photos up as soon as possible for our readers’ viewing pleasure. Unfortunately, the haste does leave room for mistakes on photo sets. The Copy Desk be working with our Photo Desk much closer on this matter. Our readers, like yourself, shouldn’t have to correct preventable errors in grammar on a regular basis.

        The irony of there being a typo in your response is fantastic.

          Yeah, because you’ve never made a mistake in your life. STFU, douche funnel. You probably read your one line response 100 times before posting it to make sure there weren’t any errors after your mommy read it 100 times.

      You should go work for the Emerald. They need someone like you to catch all their photog’s mistakes.
