Fans of the Oregon Ducks respond to UCLA's 'dangerous victory.' Dana Altman's 700th career victory: 'Enormous victory'
The men's basketball program might be playing the match for the college hoops season in 2021-22.
Jacob Young has scored 19 of his season-high 23 points in the second half and overtime for the Ducks to lead Oregon to an on Thursday night.
The Ducks beat the Ducks by five points in the first half before opening the second half on a 16-2 run.
The Ducks never returned to the club in the extra period to finish the season.
The Ducks' best time in the season (10-6) and its 700th career victory for Head Coach Dana Altman was achieved.
Here's what national media and Ducks fans had to say about the impressive win:
Dana Altman is the son of Rubik's Cubes.
Coach Dana Altman wins his 700 W in ot as he prepares for UCLA's game.
Oregon wins the contest against UCLA in an empty Pauley Pavilion. Wont be surprised at all if the Ducks go dancing via PAC-12 tourney victory. Have enough talent... and a guy named Dana Altman - who just won his 700th career game
Dana Altman has always had a strong season ahead of the Ducks' defeat in the OT. Jacob Young has been burying shots for 23 points.
The Ducks defeated a Top 3 team on the road two years ago. I've searched the school record book and can't find a new top 3 game.
Did we win against UCLA last night last night?

After the Ducks blew a late lead in regulation, Dana Altman said, "We've not fought through a adversity throughout the year. But we know it's good tonight."
SCO Ducks!! OREGON HOOPSDowned UCLA!!!!!
Dana Altman is smiling!That alone should show you how big this victory is. Ducks overcame an embarrassing moment in regulation to win in overtime 84-81 over #3 UCLA
Congrats to coach Altman and the Ducks for their road victory against UCLA. Got this team turned around and look like they can make a run.
For the first time since January 7, 1977, an unranked Oregon team has defeated a ranked UCLA team. That's a shame, the Ducks were led by future NBA champion Greg Ballard and future head coach Ernie Kent.
The Ducks win!!!! UCLA!
Is Oregon finally coming around, or is UCLA severely over-rated? No fans helped the Ducks last night, but I think the answer to the aforementioned question is: both.
Oregon beat UCLA just 6-3 in Westwood, a result of an enormous victory for the Ducks, despite a poor start to the season.Dana Altman finds a solution.
Congratulations to Coach Altman for his 700 career victory in UCLA!
Are the ducks back? No. 3 goes down. Huge win for unranked. Biggest win of the year for the ducks
Dana Altman might of coached me up, so I could of made his High School Team, according to me.
