Ducks Need To Need To Retain Players, Beavs Need Some Size

College basketball season is almost over and the Ducks and the Beavers didn’t have a magical season.

VSIN’s Greg Peterson joined the Bald Faced Truth and said the Ducks used to dominate the transfer portal before it was huge. Now they need to retain their talent, “What Oregon was really doing a great job of five years ago is that they were one of the few teams that were masters of the transfer portal. Now a lot fo teams have really caught on,” Peterson says that it’s about retaining talent now for the Ducks, “The key for Oregon is keeping these guys on campus a little bit more, because Ke’El Ware was a highly touted guy and he’s in the transfer portal now. I think Dana Altman needs to find a little more of a true identity.”

The Beavers made the Elite Eight a few years ago, but Peterson says the guards are actually solid and that the big guys need to be better, “They need to find some sort of rebounding, because they’ve lost a lot of their top forwards very late in the transfer portal,” Peterson says you can tell they need help inside based off the lack of rebounding they had, “They didn’t have a single guy average north of 4.5 rebounds per game. That is the issue for the team, and it has been issue for Oregon State the last few years.”

The Final Four is coming this weekend. And of course Greg had picks for that. He makes his picks in the link below:
