‘Murdered Out’ Oregon uniforms not killing opponents.

The Oregon men’s basketball team has been debuting new uniform designs over the last few games, with the most recent one being a “murdered out” version where everything but the players’ numbers are blacked out. Even though they looked stealthy, the Ducks had trouble finding each other on the floor, but UCLA was definitely able to see them as the Bruins recorded a double-digit number of steals.

I get the whole part about muting out the individual players’ names on the back of the jersey, but it’s certainly not looking like a team effort. Tajuan Porter is coughing the ball up way too much, Malik Hariston isn’t getting the rock enough, Bryce Taylor’s spurts of greatness need to be unleashed more frequently, and Joevan Catron needs to help Maarty Leunen by consistently finishing when he’s in the paint. Oh, and Oregon also needs a bench with energy. Those guys seem dead, and too worried about pleasing Ernie Kent.

Let’s go Ducks! You have three games left to prove you’re worthy of the a bid in March. Put that uniform on with pride, if you can find it, and just play the game.
