08:14 AM ET 01.14 | Dana Altman and the Ducks are coming off quite a week. They can say, for the first time in what seems like forever, that they're perfect in Pac-12 play after holding off Arizona State for a 68-65 victory Sunday night at Matthew Knight Arena. And they can watch [Monday] as national recognition inevitably starts to pour in, in the form of a likely ranking in the polls and stories about an unlikely Pac-12 title contender. If Altman has his druthers, though, his team won't pay attention to any of it. That was his message, in a nutshell, after the Ducks' breakthrough victory over No. 4 Arizona [on Thursday]. ... In the end, the Ducks got the victory they wanted [on Sunday] -- even if it brings with it attention their coach could do without.

If their B'Ball team is like their F'Ball team, the answer is NO.

Duke is vulnerable...
KY is vulnerable....
'NC is vulnerable....
Freakin' TSUN is unmasked...
The Least is in disarray...
It could be time, time for a PAC school to emerge once again, and the Ducks... Well, the Ducks have a cool mascot, pretty cheer squad, the best Gangnam Style knock-off vid, and a last-kid-picked-for-teams aura over the student body. They'll do.
