Ducks recruiting wins, Blazers coaching shuffle, WNBA prospects and a Montana pub crawl

Oregon head football coach Dan Lanning takes a selfie with students as the Ducks take on the No. 9 Arizona Wildcats in a men’s basketball game at Matthew Knight Arena in Eugene, Oregon on Saturday, January 27, 2024.
