In a classy move, the University of Oregon Athletic Department is inviting Umpqua Community College students and staff to its game this Saturday against Washington State.

A brutal mass shooting recently took place on Umpqua’s campus.

Oregon has taken several measures to show support for the community college. Last week, the Ducks and Oregon State Beavers each paid tribute to the victims on their football helmets.

Nothing will erase the pain the Umpqua community is suffering as a result of the tragedy, but Oregon has put forth a series of thoughtful gestures, nonetheless.

Joe Boozell has been a college basketball writer for NCAA.com since 2015. His work has also appeared in Bleacher Report, FOXSports.com and NBA.com. Joe’s claim to fame since joining NCAA.com: he’s predicted the correct national championship game twice… and picked the wrong winner both times. Growing up, Joe squared off against both Anthony Davis and Frank Kaminsky in the Chicagoland basketball scene. You can imagine how that went.
