PORTLAND, Ore. -- Following impressive wins last week against two undefeated teams, the Oregon Ducks made a big move in both major college basketball polls Monday.
The Ducks' two opponents last week, UCLA and USC, were a combined 27-0 before the Ducks ended both of those teams' undefeated seasons.
In Wednesday's 89-87 victory against then second-ranked UCLA, Dillon Brooks hit a game-winning 3-pointer with 0.8 seconds left. Brooks was sensational in that game, scoring 23 points, grabbing nine rebounds and chipping in four assists and two steals.
Brooks, who was sidelined with a foot injury for the preseason and first three games of the regular season, was the star again on Friday, scoring a season-high 28 points in an 84-61 win against USC, which was ranked 22nd with a 14-0 record coming into the game.
Next up for the Ducks? A road game at Washington on Wednesday, Its first true road tests since it lost to No. 4 Baylor on Nov. 15.
