Wearing pink trimmed jerseys and shoes for the second straight game for Coaches vs. Cancer, the Duck men won their second consecutive. A 67-57 victory over USC.
The Ducks (12-9, 4-5) make the turn in the Pac-10 season with a much better outlook for the second half. After dropping five in a row, Oregon seemed to find new life at home. Recall, the Ducks dropped their first three games at Mac Court this season.

The Ducks try to get to .500 in conference next Saturday with part two of the Civil War in Corvallis.
