Don't change that channel just yet! Oregon v. Cal Take 2! First, the Cal men win, 78-60. And now, the Cal women take on Oregon. Same channel! Not sure if JustinTV will be streaming this (it isn't, it's streaming UCLA-UW), but Channel Surfing will. Go Bears! Beat the Ducks! AGAIN!

And feel free to use this to discuss the men's victory over Oregon (just to keep threads at a minimum).

Thursday, Feb. 19, 8:00 p.m.: Oregon at No. 6 Cal (Radio: KALX 90.7-FM, TV: CSN-California)

SCOUTING OREGON The Oregon Ducks (9-15, 5-8 Pac-10) are coming off a come-from-behind victory against Washington on Saturday, Feb. 14 on in Eugene, Ore. Junior guard Micaela Cocks scored 17 points in the second half, going four-for-four from three-point range, to help the Ducks erase a 10-point deficit to earn a 77-69 victory. They shot 56.8 percent from the field overall in the game and had a span where they connected on 13 of the 19 field-goal attempts (68.4 percent). The victory snapped a string of six straight Pac-10 losses for the Ducks. Earlier in the week, Oregon struggled from the floor, making just six of their 17 field goal attempts in the second half in their 58-45 loss to Washington State. The Ducks have scored fewer than 50 points in three of their last five games.

Cocks leads the team in scoring, averaging 14.3 ppg. Junior guard Taylor Lilley is the only other Oregon player to average double figures, scoring 10.4 ppg.

Oregon leads the all-time series 36-20 and 30-18 in Pac-10 play. Cal has won the last five straight meetings.
