Team preview: Oregon
Blue Ribbon Illustrated previews the 2004-05 college basketball season, exclusively on Insider.
Thus far into his career as Oregon coach, Ernie Kent has proven adept at reloading.
For three straight years, Oregon has had a player selected in the first round of the NBA draft. And each following season, the Ducks found a replacement and continued to advance to postseason tournaments.
This year, the seventh-year Oregon coach has some major questions, with the loss of All-American Luke Jackson and no seniors returning. Still, Kent remains just as confident about the prospect of this year's team as those in the past.
