Oregon basketball drops one spot in Top 25 after splitting weekend games

Oregon fell from 23rd to 24th in the Associated Press Top 25 after going 1-1 against the Bay Area schools last weekend at Matthew Knight Arena. Meanwhile, Arizona, the only other Pac-12 school in the Top 25, moved up one spot from 12th to 11th after sweeping the Washington schools.

The Ducks were ranked as high as 10th before Dominic Artis was injured but looked like they may fall out of the Top 25 after a last-second loss to Cal last Thursday. On Saturday, however, with Johnathan Loyd having something of a breakout game at point guard the Ducks looked at times like the same team that was once the number ten team in the country.

Oregon plays their final home game of the year this Thursday against Oregon State looking for the Civil War sweep.
