Conference Update: Colorado’s Wright nearing history, Ducks lose Shough to transfer portal

Welcome back to 750 The Game’s Conference Update, brought to you by Pacific Seafood, the official meat & seafood provider of the Pac-12 Conference.

This week’s update:

Colorado’s Wright nearing history

McKinley Wright is on the  doorstep of setting some conference history.  The Buffs star senior is just two rebounds shy of becoming the first player in the Pac-12 to reach career thresholds of 1,600 points, 600 rebounds and 600 assists.  Wright can achieve that mark Saturday when Colorado visits Cal, before the Buffs take on the Oregon Ducks next Thursday night in Eugene.


Tyler Shough enters transfer portal

The Oregon Ducks are down one of their top QBs, as Tyler Shough announced Friday he is entering the transfer portal to play his final three remaining seasons of eligibility elsewhere as a grad transfer.  Shough thanks his coaches  and teammates for his time at Oregon, as well as the academic staff that enabled him to graduate with two degrees in three years.  Oregon will turn to incumbent returning grad transfer Anthony Brown, or highly-touted incoming freshman Ty Thompson, as their likely starting quarterback options entering next season.  John Canzano spoke with Matt Prehm of 247 Sports more about that topic on Friday, hear the conversation below.


Ducks men’s hoops aim to sweep Arizona schools

Chris Duarte returned to Oregon’s lineup after missing some time, and scored 18 points in the first half to lead the Ducks over Arizona State on Thursday night 75-64.  Saturday at 11am Oregon visits rival Arizona on ESPN2 in a big game for both programs fighting to stay in the top third of the conference and within arm’s reach of No.20 USC, who beat Washington Thursday night 69-54 behind a 17-point, 7-rebound night from Evan Mobley.
