A quick recap on Sunday's game against 11th ranked North Carolina... The final score may have been 76-59 but that doesn't tell the story of the Ducks being up 24-14 ten minutes into the first half. The Ducks went to the locker room at half-time STILL ahead, but just by one point. The Tar Heels came back in the second-half with all the answers and, despite some scrappy play by the Ducks, just kept stretching their lead.

NEXT GAME: Portland State, TUESDAY, 11/25, 6 PM.
Remember there will be a CHALK TALK before every home game from here on out. They begin 50 minutes before game time and last only 15 minutes or so. This is an excellent way for fans to tune up for the game! Everyone is invited, not just FBC members, so bring a friend or two!
Yes. The UO Fast Break Club's halftime BINGO has begun! Look for the bingo sellers out in the hallways. They'll have on their green aprons and will be loaded with especially lucky cards. Remember, sales of these bingo cards help the Fast Break Club to support the women's basketball program at UO.
FBC "TABLE" IN THE McARTHUR CLUB
In the time between the chalk talks and the games, the FBC will "set up shop" in the McArthur Club. We'll be available to answer questions, chat, provide membership brochures, you name it. We have a new table-top banner that fits nicely on the small round tables. Look for us!
