Oregon head basketball coach Dana Altman was given a tough task when he was asked to rebuild the Oregon program in 2010. With a roster depleted by transfers, Altman guided the Ducks to a CBI title in 2011. In season two, Altman almost delivered the Ducks a Pac-12 championship while having the team on the brink of the NCAA Tournament.

Altman's biggest challenge has been to even out the recruiting classes while trying to build a roster with transfer players. Last year the Ducks had two players who transferred in for their final year of eligibility. The goal is to set a solid foundation by bringing in high school players who are in it for the long haul.

With a strong group coming in this year, Altman and the Ducks look to build on last year's class by bringing in a new crop of high school players to help right the ship.
