The coach couldn't believe it. He looked at a reporter and said, "Can you believe it? Can you believe it ?" Then USC's Kevin O'Neill left the bowels of McArthur Court, still shocked -- not that the Trojans lost to Oregon, 67-57, Saturday, but that they lost their chances of winning when a student manager was called for a technical foul late in a tight game. The call came with 4 minutes 35 seconds left and Oregon leading, 49-47. Stan Holt, a third-year manager, was deemed responsible.

Oregon's new basketball home features a high-definition scoreboard, 6,944 square feet of maple hardwood and an on-court illustration of the view from beneath a forest of fir trees. One thing hasn't changed: the fans. Only now, there are more of them. The Ducks' $227-million Matthew Knight Arena seats 12,364, an increase of 3,277 over capacity at recently closed McArthur Court. That's probably not a good thing for UCLA, which on Saturday afternoon becomes the second visiting team to play on "Matt Court.

At tipoff Thursday night in Eugene, Ore., USC and Oregon players can gaze down at the most unusual and iconic court in all of college basketball. And if they gaze up, they'll find the largest and most advanced center-hung scoreboard in all of college athletics. And all around them, whether from the end lines, sidelines, or the steeply-tiered seats sitting practically on top of the court, more than 12,000 Oregon fans will be at fever pitch as the referees toss the ball up, commencing the opening of the Ducks' gleaming $200-million Matthew Knight Arena.

Ernie Kent, the winningest coach in Oregon history, was dismissed Tuesday after 13 seasons with his alma mater. "You may find a better basketball coach, but I don't think you'll find anybody that has the passion and love that I have for this university," said Kent, who had to pause for several moments to fight back his emotions. Oregon went 16-16 overall and 7-11 in the Pac-10 this past season, finishing with a 90-74 quarterfinal loss to California in the conference tournament.

USC's nonconference schedule next season is shaping into something tough. There are agreements to play at Kansas, Tennessee and Nebraska; Texas would come to the Galen Center. There is also a tentative deal for USC to host Marquette in the first of a two-game series. "We're trying to play a heavyweight schedule," USC Coach Kevin O'Neill said. "We want to be able to recruit high-level recruits to play in a high-level league and play a high-level nonconference schedule."

The Galen Center has often been the failin' center for opposing teams. The reason why is a head scratcher. The three-year-old arena isn't smack-dab in nowheres-ville (ever been to Pullman, Wash.?). Fans are occasionally loud, but are hardly vicious (ask former UCLA forward Kevin Love about Oregon). It lacks the oppressive mystique (having a banner season is defined differently at UCLA).
