Tuesday, Nov. 9, 11:00 a.m.

at 22nd and Burnside (top) and 4th and Stark (bottom)
At the street corners of 22nd/Burnside and 4th/Stark in Portland, billboards have been erected to promote the upcoming men’s basketball game between Duke and Oregon. But those billboards have a greater meaning for those familiar with recent prep basketball history in the state of Oregon.

The Oregon-Duke game set for Nov. 27 at the Rose Garden Arena in Portland marks the first time brothers E.J. (Oregon) and Kyle (Duke) Singler will compete against each other. The two Oregonians were accomplished prep basketball players in their home state, teaming up to lead South Medford High School to back-to-back state title game appearances.

Great seats are still available for the Duke-Oregon game, click here to purchase seats online at comcasttix.com.

For those of you who don’t know the back story: The two Medford, Ore., products led SMHS to a state championship during the 2006-07 season, when Kyle was a senior and E.J was a sophomore. Just a year before, the Singler brothers led SMHS to a runners-up finish at the state tournament. Below are a couple of prep basketball facts about both Singler brothers.
