Give those Ducks and Beavers a hand
In spite of being one of the last teams to get into the NCAA baseball tournament Monday morning, there might not be a hotter team in America than the University of Oregon based on its play from the past month, including a weekend series win over UCLA.
That's the NCAA talking, too.
Oregon beat UCLA in extra innings on both Saturday and Sunday, which didn't stop the Bruins from moving up in the national rankings. So, if Oregon can beat the top-ranked team in the nation, what's stoping them from winning a national title.
That's a topic Sportsland, Oregon co-hosts Cliff and Derek take on in the 14th Episode this week.
Oregon State, a team with a lengthy history of postseason success, is also among the tournament picks.
There's more action on the diamond from the state as the Ducks are headed to the College Softball World Series this week in Oklahoma City.
The NBA gets some time, as does a rough weekend of soccer for Portland. Derek provides some insight on attending the upcoming U.S. Open, and there's plenty of discussion about the growing popularity of ... roofball.
It's all recorded at Blitz Pearl in Northwest Portland.
