Dana Altman was quick to shoulder the blame after one of Oregon’s ugliest offensive performances of the season came at the wrong time and against an opponent the Ducks knew all too well. The Ducks lacked the answers to solve Southern California for the second time this season. Oregon’s season came to a crashing halt with an 82-68 loss to USC in the West Region semifinal.

The Ducks were undone by struggles at the offensive end as they were unable to solve the length and size presented by the Trojans’ zone defense.
