Updates from Monday, Dec. 16
Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports has an update on Dominic Artis and Ben Carter as they return from suspension to the Oregon rotation:
"We'll work them in," Altman said Monday morning. "We've set a rotation early on but we've only played nine games so nothing is set in stone. We're hoping that now we'll have a bit more depth so we can pressure the ball even more defensively."
Artis was arguably the Ducks' most important player last season, but during his suspension senior Jonathan Loyd performed at an elite level.
"He's doing a good job," Altman said of Loyd, whose averaging 11.1 points and 7.3 assists. "The way he's moving the ball has been good. He's pushing it every chance he gets."
