Oregon Ducks Dillon Brooks Named Pac-12 Player Of The Week
The Oregon Ducks Men’s Basketball team has a 16-game winning streak and have won 18 of their last 19 games thanks in part to Dillon Brooks.
The 2016 season for the Oregon Ducks Junior started on the sideline coming off a foot injury. He started to work his way back into form in Hawaii and the start of Pac-12 play had an exclamation point play of the season against UCLA. He drained a three-pointer with just 0.8 seconds left on the clock to give Oregon the win over the Bruins.
This past week he was named Pac-12 Player of the Week. Dillon Brooks averaged over 22 points hitting 67 percent from beyond the arc in helping dismantle the 5th ranked Arizona Wildcats to extend Ducks winning streak at Matthew Knight Arena to 40 straight games. WIth the Kansas home loss over the weekend, Oregon now holds the Nation’s Longest Winning Streak all alone.
The schedule the rest of the way is not in the favor of Oregon. The Ducks have just two home games left and play the rest of the way on the road starting Thursday with a team looking for revenge in the UCLA Bruins. Oregon finishes the home slate with Utah and Colorado. The Buffaloes beat Oregon in Boulder last week.
Dillon Brooks and the Ducks are right back where they started back in November. It as taken three months to get there. Oregon and UCLA meet in LA on Thursday at 7:30pm PT on ESPN.
