Back In First After Epic Comeback

EUGENE, Ore. — Down as much as 14 in the first half after allowing 20 straight points, the Oregon men's basketball team fought all the way back to win Friday night, 68-60, over Colorado before 9,275 fans in Matthew Knight Arena.

The dramatic comeback got the No. 17 Ducks back into a first-place tie atop the Pac-12 Conference with the No. 16 Buffaloes. It was the fifth time this season that the UO men's basketball team rallied to win after trailing a game by double digits.

"It didn't look good there for a while," UO coach Dana Altman said.
