Oregon lost to Arkansas, 81-82, at the second day of the Oregon Relays. The Ducks-Razorbacks matchup culminated in the final race of the meet, the 4×400-meter relay. The Ducks’ Mike Berry and the Razorbacks’ Akheem Gauntlett anchored the relay, with the Razorbacks finishing .25 seconds ahead of the Ducks.
