The Oregon men’s basketball team (22-8, 10-8 in Pac-12) take on the Oregon State Beavers (16-14, 8-10 in Pac-12) in their first game of the Pac-12 tournament at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on March 12. The Ducks are looking to carry the momentum over from their 64-57 win over the No.3 Arizona Wildcats and their current seven game winning streak into tonight’s game. The regular season Civil War series between the Ducks and Beavers is tied, losing on the road in Corvallis, and picking up a win at home, which started their current winning streak. Oregon guard Jason Calliste comes into tonight’s game leading the Pac-12 (3rd nationally) in three-point field goal percentage, hitting 60 three-pointers on 116 attempts for 51.7 percent on the year.
